Colour me your colour baby.

Tee: c/o COLLECTIVE. Tennis skirt: £2.50, Fred Perry via charity shop. Leather jacket: The Kooples. Anna boots: £76.50, Topshop. Jewellery: gift. Women's Glasses: c/o MyOptique.

And this is why I never say I'll post on a certain day. This was meant to be published on Friday, but I had a bit of a manic weekend (maybe you saw my tweets) so it got put on the backburner, and now I'm typing this up from Paris. I mean, who wants a boring life?

This is the final of my white tee looks, and I think it might be my favourite. I got this skirt as a set with a tee from my favourite charity shop a long time ago but never got round to wearing it as I always feel a bit nervous when combining white with my love of tomatoes, and I'll always prioritise puttanesca over sartorial sensibility! I always envy Camilla's all-white ensembles, so thought it was about time that I gave it a go myself.

You may also notice my new specs! I've been wearing glasses since I was twelve, but they've never really featured heavily on my blog as I tend to wear contact lenses most days. However, I was well due a new pair after putting it off for over two years, so I had a look through MyOptique's range of designer glasses and picked a pair of Soho London Retro Glasses. I'm not quite sure how they can sell frames and lenses for less than £80, but I'm bloody happy they do! They're a lot thicker than my last frames, but I feel much more comfortable wearing them outside after the paranoia I'd developed over the years. I'm pretty sure they'll become a regular feature of outfit posts to come!

Not leather clad or dangerous.

Now, any of you who follow me on twitter may have noticed that I've been indulging in the music I love quite a bit recently. Last week, I headed down to Twickenham to see Chime for Change with my main girls Liv and Jaz, and then later that week we went slightly more more East to Rough Trade for the launch of Miles Kane's new album. Of course, I thought it only fair to channel their cool, and whip out the new "yay you've made it through three years of university treat yourself" present I picked up in the Kooples after about three hours of umm-ing and ahh-ing. I've always wanted a leather jacket, as anyone who's seen me in the same room as one will definitely know, and you could find me looking on every website from Bonprix (it's an online store I've recently come across, please keep me away from their festival shop) to Topshop in my attempts to find The One, but once I had the thumbs up from mama, I knew it'd be okay to finally enter my pin and do it. And, erm, here it is in all its glory.

To tone it down to make it more mosh pit than royal circle, I've paired it with my Jonis and a plain white tee. This particular t shirt is from a brand called COLLECTIVE, who have challenged me to style it three ways. You may have seen Monday's toned-down affair, and it's gonna be all-white on Friday (and I can't promise there won't be any puns, as there probably will be). About 90% of my tees are white, but all seem to be adorned with something band related (I'm looking at you, Morrissey). This one's a lovely lightweight material, that fits loosely enough to not weigh you down in the hot weather, so it'll be perfect for the Summer, if it ever shows its head. I am consciously trying to build up a wardrobe of good quality basics, so this one fits right in.

Break me on the thirty-seventh hour.

White tee: c/o COLLECTIVE. Leather skirt: £13.50, Topshop. Mug: gift (from my brother!), Cath Kidston.

For me, "home" means the Essex countryside. As far removed from TOWIE as feasibly possible (okay, about fifteen minutes drive from Sugar Hut, but we'll ignore that), I often find myself enjoying a good cuppa in the kitchen with whatever book I happen to reading at that moment in time; today's novella of choice happens to be The Great Gatsby. I do like the quiet of home, but I can't help but miss Liverpool's hustle and bustle more than a little bit. I'm looking forward to settling in again, i.e. cramming the heinous amount of clothes I've managed to build up over the past few months into my wardrobe, and catching up with friends I haven't seen for a few months. I hope the rest of you who are coming back from university are returning to homelife just as comfortably, and, if you need it, Yorkshire Tea's currently on offer in Morrison's, and everyone knows that it's the best one out there!
