Work hard play hard









Jacket: c/o Missguided.uk (link here)
Shorts: c/o Missguided.uk (link here)
Wedges: Therapy
Matte black cuff: Colette Accessories

The fantastic thing about black and grey is that you can experiment with all sorts of clashing textures and prints, without creating too much of a sight for sore eyes. This awesome jacket from MissGuided features the unlikely duo of tweed down the front and leather in the sleeves, and even a subtle metallic sheen. The paisley print on my denim shorts also from MissGuided steps in to add as always, a girly touch from me. Black and grey can be so fun when you incorporate such a mish mash of various elements!


Sorry for the absence guys. Currently prepping for my final exams, after which I'll be done with uni forever and ever! :) Countless hours spent trudging through confusing caselaw, tedious legislation and uninteresting academic debate- you will not be missed.

  42. I absolutely love this outfit Izzy, especially the blazer, how stunning. And the play with blacks doesn't look at all dreary, the negative black spaces in the baroque pattern shorts add lots of quirky dimension c: I hope you're taking breaks during study and it'll all be worth it after the finals!!

  93. That's a great motto to have. Stay positive girl! I'm sure when you are done with uni and out to work for a few years, you'll miss uni's life! (Maybe it's just me =P)

  100. Your experiment with textures and pattern was, I must say, a great success! :) It is definitely not overwhelming even though you combined two very busy patterns together. I think the solid black t-shirt separates them quite nicely.
    Izzy you're a law student? When you become a lawyer you will be the hottest lawyer around ;) It's a great reminder that being in a nonfashion related profession does not mean we must give up fashion :) Good luck with your finals! or maybe you are done by now? If you are, I hope you are enjoying your freedom!

  112. I've been seeing a lot of the leather sleeve + other material combinations for jackets this season. I wasn't sure about it until I saw someone model this leather sleeved parka the other day. I don't even like parka's but I fell for it!
