APRIL SHOWERS

APRIL SHOWERS

 —
SO, WE JUST MISSED THE RAIN

You know those previous posts I made, getting all joyful about the amazing summer weather, taking in the sun and finally being able to wear that playsuit out. Well, at the back of my mind I knew it was just too good to be true. The infamous April Showers have in fact made a return for 2017 (congratulations, England!). As you may have noticed from the state of the ground, these photos were taken just after the recent downpour on Wednesday. I was feeling brave with a black frilled short-sleeve top, but trust me, I was crying for a coat! These photos were taken down Observatory Street in Jericho, Oxford, not far from where I was staying. It’s a very cute, narrow residential street, another mini-portobello road that I’ve stumbled upon. I think pathetic fallacy was leaning over me because I opted for an all-black look which hasn’t happened in a while – but hey, I found a pink house to make up for it 😉

Speak soon – K.

    Shame about the rain, but this is a cute outfit! The ruffles on the sleeves and hems of your pants work so nicely together!

    The pink wall is a really lovely backdrop too.

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend 🙂

      Thanks – I thought the double set of ruffles would be a bit too much, but they are quite subtle so it works out! A wonderful weekend to you too Mica <3

      I know right, plain black trousers but those little end details make them something special! 😉

    I really love that top!
    I have wanted to buy one like it for a while – but they are all made out of fabrics I don’t like…

    This playsuit is so chic! I love the oversized sleeves and the ruffled hem bottoms! Fun but elegant as well!

    Have a great start of the week girl!

    XoXo,

      Thanks, Shloka! I thought the unpredictability was over.. but of course, we shouldn’t speak too soon haha!

    I can totally relate to getting my hopes up about the weather like this haha It’s always too good to be true. The pink house does make up for it all though & you’re outfit is really nice & sophisticated. The little ruffles on the ends of the trousers are such a cute little detail!
