OOTD: Stripes on Stripes

Outfit: denim and stripes

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside.... But possibly not when it's cold and misty!

Yes, one recent sunny weekend, the fam and I decided to head to the coast to get some FRESH air and soak up the sun! Sadly, the further away we got from our little home town , the cloudier and greyer it got. However, this did make for quite an atmospheric blog backdrop! (Silver lining to every cloud and all that...)

We're in that weird 'transitional' period at the moment where it's sunny and bright one minute, then cold and miserable again the next (see pictures!). So, I have been looking all over for some lighter jacket / coat type things that will take me through to Summer. And this was the winner. For my seaside themed post, I wore my stripey new New Look jacket - I think this is a total bargain for only £25.

To complete my look - more stripes! A stripey shirt and a stripey watch are the dream team...

Daniel Wellington Watch

I HAVE to point out my favourite piece in this outfit... This beautiful Daniel Wellington watch. OMG I'm in love!! <3 I have been coveting one of these watches for months now and finally my dreams came true at the recent Burns Jewellers event. Yes, I won this beauty in the raffle that they held to raise money for a local hospice.

*Be prepared to see this in every single outfit post from now on... ;-)

  20. It might not have been the perfect sunny day but what a cool background for your shots. I love all the stripes in your outfit, the jeans especially are really unusual and how beautiful is that Daniel Wellington watch? Your red lip compliments all the stripes and blue tones perfectly x
