Now get this work!

Footlocker Snapback / Matalan Geek Jumper / H&M DIY Shirt / H&M Print Skirt / H&M Leather Trousers / Internacionale Court Heels. 

I'm back home from London/Kingston and I have to say it was quite 'the' journey! After 2 days there, I'm back with more stories than I have shirts and collar necklaces. But for now, I'll tell you about this outfit. The idea of wearing skirts over trousers might send shivers of utter terror down your spine but I've braved it today and decided to try it! Yes, it sounds absolutely absurd that I would try it because this trend reminds me of those odd skirt and pants ensembles from the mid-nineties, which ironically my mother used to wear. A couple of weeks ago, I would have rejected this idea but I dare say, this skirt-trouser dressing sure is no gimmick; its simply an atrocious but weirdly brilliant and simultaneously stylish way of wearing your favourite pants and skirt together at the same bloody time.

These leather trousers are THE most perfect trousers ever made, thank you H&M! They fit perfectly, shape perfectly and are such a great colour. I wore a print skirt over the trousers for that 'skirt-trouser' effect and a bright coloured shirt to add some character to my look. To finish off, I threw in a simple pair of court heels, gold clutch, GEEK jumper and a snapback. This look departs from my grungy tendencies but hell, its all about trying out something new once in a while.

Hope you are all having a nice day!
