Top of the mornin' to you all: Happy Monday!

How was your weekend?

I had a very relaxed and chilled one with Jordan; it was amazing! We strolled down the Brighton North Laines, fed my falafel craving with a sweet potato wrap, finally watched Monsters University (definitely recommend it), made blueberry banana honey oatmeal muffins, ate homemade dark chocolate drizzled popcorn and ended it with the film Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs. Bliss.

It's only 7 days until my 21st birthday too! This is the first ever year that I've been excited for my birthday as I normally hate the occasion. I feel like an excited little kid and it's great to finally have a smile on my face for something worth celebrating about!

Anywho, back to the outfit. This would be something I'd typically wear to work on days that I feel 'smart' but comfortable. The khaki trousers are a welcome alternative to skinny jeans and I reversed the classic colour palette with a black chiffon shirt instead. The soft textures of the pieces blend and work together well; the gold choker necklace also helps to break up the neutral with a 'bit 'o bling'. 

The key to comfort is a well fitting pair of shoes so enter these sandals from Topshop. They're padded, leather, can withstand hours of walking and were only £24! Bargain. All that's left was to add on my pair of glasses and I'm good to go. Please note: these glasses actually help me see. They're not clear nor a fashion statement although they are pretty snazzy. I need another trip down to Specsavers soon though as things are getting a bit too blurry for my liking.

With that fun fact over, I'll end the post for today!
I hope the start of your week has started on a high so far!

Have a lovely rest of the day :)  


  1. Those glasses look so nice on you! I tried similar ones on before - for a fashion statement rather than actually needing them like you - and I looked awful! They only really suit certain people, but they look great on you! Just letting you know, because you're one of my new favourite bloggers I've nominated you for the Liebster Award! For more details visit my blog post about it

    It explains everything! Any questions just leave a comment x

  2. Love this look Shu! I had some trouser really similar last year and now I've seen you doing this lok I def know what to pair them with for this year :) I've also nominated you for the Liebster award, (as has Georgia above so it seems) so check out the post over on my blog and take a look :) xxx

  3. Great post! Thanks for sharing!

    Hugs, Brittany, xx
