One last time in the old neighbourhood

I don't want to start this post by being a negative Nancy but I feel like this outfit definitely looked better in the flesh. Or maybe it's my hair as I definitely need my roots doing and probably a good chop.  And brush.  Okay let's move on before I decline to post this at all!  I had to take the photos inside today as the weather is just too horrific outside but I quite like how they've come out actually, the light is nice in our bedroom and I know I'm lucky to have a fashion blogger's dream - a big white wall you can use for outfit photos! 

Tom came back late on Friday night from two weeks away on training courses so we planned a nice relaxing day together yesterday.  We had a yummy breakfast of pancakes and lots of fruit (as part of my #deskfest challenge which I'll be telling you all about tomorrow) and then went on to the spa for a swim and a good long lounge in the hydrotherapy pool.  When we got back from the spa we got changed and headed out for a late lunch and this was my outfit.  (Shortly afterwards I consumed baked brie, a wild boar and chorizo burger and an ice cream flavour cupcake and then needed a two hour nap).

Whilst wearing suits for interviewing and delivering training last week I got a bit attached to the idea of a crisp, white shirt - I think that paired with a statement necklace it looks so chic.  I gave in and bought this bouclé biker jacket from boohoo boutique a couple of weeks ago and I thought it might look good paired with a shirt and jeans for its first wear.  I am in love with the jacket and so glad I bit the bullet and bought it, even if Tom did say I looked like Michael Jackson.

bouclé jacket: boohoo £40 | shirt: ebay [old]
jeans: cheap monday [old] | shoe boots: boohoo [old]
necklace: ebay £7.64
I know that a lot of people like a neat layout where all the photos are the same orientation so I thought I'd try the same today but I'm not sure how much you need giant photos of my face or me looking slightly moody.  This is what happens when I try and be down with the cool kids eh? Oh well! Hope you're all having lovely weekends so far where you are.

  13. Well I think you look hotness, queridita. Love the contrast on the jacket. Never thought to try and find a shirt on eBay. The Thomas Pink one is just eye wateringly expensive.

  21. Sounds like a lovely day :). I think this outfit looks amazing even if it did look better in the flesh! I really want a good plain white shirt, can't find the perfect one anywhere and yours has only made me want one even more, looks gorgeous with this necklace. Love the jacket too!

  23. wahhhh Rosie you always have the nicest of jackets (maybe this explains why I'm always cold!)
    I don't think you look like MJ at all, in fact you look cooler, and sexier, and well just amazing if you ask me. Plus your smile makes me smile. xx
