Somehow we’ve managed to fluke a bit of good weather over the bank holiday.. so it feels a bit strange uploading this outfit post while I’m sat on the balcony enjoying the sun! But it was only shot a couple of days ago. I’m still feeling pretty motivated about blogging, so after stuffing our faces at the Boiler Shop, me and Charissa headed for a wander around Ouseburn. And of course take a couple of outfit shots. Unlike today’s glorious weather though, it was a bit overcast and with massive food babies from the Steamer, I was a bit of a reluctant subject. I’m still getting over the awkwardness of style posts.. and realising how hideously unphotogenic I am. But bear with me, while I’m getting back into the swing of things! I’m starting to feel like I’m getting a bit more direction (and frequency) with my content. Which can only be a good thing, right?
With the exception of the last couple of days, we’re still in that in between season. Most days it’s still been cloudy and a bit too cold to leave the house without a jacket. Or at least a pair of tights. Don’t get me wrong, I do love autumn/winter (especially for fashion), but I’m ready for the sunshine now. I’m ready for bare legs weather and loose fitting linen dresses. One good thing about our slightly unpredictable spring weather is that I can still get away with light jumpers like this. So I’ve been making the most of getting my wear out of this Cooperative ribbed jumper. It’s the sort of top that makes me feel like I’m in a Wes Anderson film. I love the colour, the shape and the knit. And even though I knew when I was buying it, that it’s definitely not going to be jumper weather for much longer, I couldn’t resist. Clearly still a sucker for that 70s vibe right now. Or Urban Outfitters. Or both maybe.
As the weather starts to shift, I’m hoping I’ll still get away with it for a little while longer. But I’m not going to lie, as soon as I see a bit of sunshine and it’s feeling a bit hotter, I’m not really one for layers. And with my trip to Cape Verde quickly approaching, I might change my mind after a week in bikinis.. I can’t help but think that as soon as I’ve got a tan, I’ll be in full summer mindset and ready to pack away all my knits. Weather permitting of course. I mean just because we’ve fluked a couple of nice days, doesn’t mean I’m naive enough to think we’re out for tropical weather for the rest of the season. Here’s hoping though. Here’s really hoping we luck out this summer.
