OOTD: Leatha in The Summa

First off, if you had forgotten entirely about my OOTD category, I do not blame you. It has practically been non-existent in the last few months or so. I’m even shocked it got any hits at all. I have been keeping busy with work stuff and just generally getting my bearings. Anywho, the weather has been shockingly good the last few days that I’m almost able to convince myself that I’m not in England but at some posh holiday location somewhere in the South of France…Amidst all the chaos and lazying around, I’ve decided to give my outfit diary a quick well-deserved boost. 

Now you’d think, it would be a breeze getting the most marvelous shots at the best angles with just the perfect amount of lighting with weather this good. That is so NOT the case! We struggled. From end of the park to another. By the time Matti and I found the right spot, my forehead was as shiny as an aluminium bowl:(

Today was my second day out and about on a summer ‘fit hunt.

Quick sidenote: I love summer but I’m not totally in love with the fashion. I just cannot find as many items that I’m in ‘love’ with as I would do in Autumn. I managed to bag these leather shorts a last week from Zara though.  I love them. Leather in the summer is usually a no-go zone but when I saw these shorts I thought, if I’m gonna wear leather in the sun, they sure as hell will be these! Plus they are on the sale. These babies are easy breezy and you can either dress them up or casually with a pair of flats. Plus the burnt brown/ tan colour is a win for me. I paired them with my must-have orange leather courts and a white sleeveless blouse. Of course I packed a pair of flats in my bag even though it isn’t pictured. Hehe. ‘Nuff talking. This is what the whole ensemble looked like: 

Top- H&M (bought in store but similar (here )

Leather effect shorts – Zara  (here )

Orange leather courts – Zara (here )

Leather tan bag – Clarks (bought from a thrift shop but similar here).

Necklace – Topshop (bought in store bought great statement piece here)

Eye make up- Body Shop Shimmer Waves eye palette (Still learning! But get yours here)

It’s been super hot lately I haven’t bothered to straighten my frizz. Plus I’ve been trying out a few no-heat techniques to keep my hair healthy and thick… Hmmm, let’s see how this goes.

Hahaha! I can’t stop laughing at some of the faces I was making.
