In Praise of Shadows

I took my (ominous) shadow out to play in the sun last Tuesday. Armed in a wool polo and a leather jacket and pants combo, I braved the cold and embraced those beautiful rays! Putty grey and burnt sienna are my new favourite complimentary shades.

Burnt Blanket

No, you don't need to adjust your screen settings, that actually is colour on the blog! I'm actually loving the pop of colour this blanket scarf is adding to my all-black outfit choices. Burnt colour-ways are basically the only hues allowed to enter my wardrobe in Winter and this scarf just embodies these lovely tones! Definitely one of my favourite gifts this Xmas (thank you dears!).

High-waisted Pinstripe

I think this outfit's quite appropriate for my first post this year! I'm no stranger to tailoring and this baggy high-waisted number from River Island has been the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Also, don't you just love the metal-insert details on this ZARA saddle-bag?
