This post should have gone up on Saturday. You know why it didn’t? Because somebody, and I’m not naming any names here, forgot to pack her camera battery when she went to Cambridge so said outfit photos couldn’t actually be shot. FFS.
Then I was supposed to do them yesterday with Chris when it was gloriously sunny, but alas, my crippling period pain and overwhelming beer pong hangover meant I only managed to leave the sofa to answer the door for the Domino’s delivery man. Sigh. (Had a stuffed crust pizza with wings, chicken stripped and nachos just FYI).
I headed up to Woodbridge today which is a little town about 7 miles outside of Ipswich to take these photos and drink coffee and eat cake (it was gluten free through which pretty much means one of my five a day, right?)
I was trialling a pair of culottes that Oasis sent me from their new SS15 range and HELLO, there’s so bloody comfortable.
OK, so it was a tad too chilly for them, what with some random Arctic winds howling down on Suffolk and my legs were probably a *little* bit pale and crispy to get out in public, but I’m obsessed, they’re so easy to wear.
I actually wore them with these same olive New Look heels and a stripy Breton top and sleeveless jacket out in Cambridge on Friday night for Byron burger and was pretty haps with the overall result – although obviously a bit like OMG ARE THESE TOO LONDON? Will people laugh at me? (Note: No-one laughed at me, although I did make friends with a family who were playing a London Underground trivia quiz at their table – amazing).
This cute nude floral top is also from the Oasis SS15 range and has a cute buttoned back – something which is was sadly just a bit too nippy to photograph. I originally planned to wear my beige trench with this little ensemble and have it as like, a really bloody cool office outfit – but I just liked how it looked with my leather biker.
I’m planning on doing some more style posts centred on these culottes over the next couple of months because culottes are scary and daunting aren’t they? I’m going to go on Pinterest and learn how to wear them with sweatshirts and Nikes without looking like a child playing with a fancy dress box. I’m going to make culottes EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY, you’ll all see, you’ll all want them too soon.
Also, excuse my hair. You know when you leave the house and think your messy top knot looks kinda cute? Turns out in photos it just makes you look like a frizzy mum on the go. Good.
