Living in England means unpredictable weather and a constant need to bring an umbrella with you just in case. This outfit most probably encompasses that: we have a red beanie to help shield away a sudden shower, a versatile sweater that can be transformed in a flash to suit a colder climate, a high-waisted pair of denim shorts to greet the sun's impromptu visits and big ol' stompy heeled boots because open toe sandals are a no-no. Sling on a pair of black tights and we're ready for another rainy day!

There were a few reasons that led to the purchase of this eagle 'starry night' sweater from Zara:

1) It was on sale. I could have started with a more sophisticated answer but let's be honest, who can resist a bargain price of £7.99 and at Zara too? Just sayin'.

2) It was another monochrome piece but this time it featured a slight cosmic print (a sucker with anything to do with the galaxy/space) and a moody lookin' eagle. My wardrobe lacks anything to do with birds so y'know, I somehow justified that it was different from my other gazillion black and white pieces. 

3) The eagle reminded me of Buckbeak the hippogriff from Harry Potter. Need I say anymore?


 To brighten up the outfit to avoid looking too dull and drab for the summer time, I shoved on a bright blue pair of shorts and a postbox red hat. Beanies may not be summer appropriate but they keep frizzy second day hair at bay and well, seems to make the outfit look slightly 'cooler'. 

So that's that!

It's my little sister's birthday today so I'm preparing myself for a day of fun. We're heading to Byron burger for lunch and then meeting her after work for some good ol' posh Pan Asian grub. I'm going to deem today a cheat day in the honour of her 17th. Seventeen years old... where has the time gone? At the risk of sounding like her mother, I'm going to end it with: happy birthday kiddo. I'm so proud of you. :)

Let me know if you have any recommendations at Byron!
I have my eye on the chilli burger and courgette fries.

Roll on 1pm!

I hope you're having a great day so far! :)
