White Stripes and Scallop Short Love

White Stripes and Scallop Short Love

Its been raining for the past few days and I’ve been stuck inside revising for my final Law exams which are Oh! so very soon! I’m sure all of you know what it feels like to be trapped inside and forced to fester in your room or office over books, when all you want to do is go on holiday and do some exercise. So when I was invited for a tour of some artist studios in Hackney Wick, I thought that it would be fitting to wear a black and white stripped convict blazer to match my prisoner persona which I have been forced to adopt in order to get me through my course. I recently bought a pair of white scallop shorts which I love. These can be worn with just about anything and they were a great way to add a feminine touch to the harsh lines of the jacket. Red sunglasses and the red rims of the white converse for some much needed color. Let me know what you think about the outfit and on how you cope with exam/work stress!

Hackney Wick and Fish Island currently has the highest concentration of creative practitioners and artist studios in Europe. I loved seeing the paint stained overalls, the boho cafes and the small galleries. Paint stained overalls…now that is an idea…;)

Welcome to the Urban Jungle

Welcome to the Urban Jungle

There is nothing better to brighten up an outfit than a colorful blazer or a patterned top. Invariably we make the top half of our outfit the center piece, but what if for once we made the focus of our look our bottom half. The other day when I was walking down Roman Road Market, I saw some very bright geometric patterned thick leggins.  I took a deep breath and thought, Hey why not!

So this is how I have combined them into an outfit which I feel is eye catching and yet blends in with the other hipsters and alternative fashions of London’s East End. The leggins have black, green, yellow and white in them and so really they could be worn with any combination of those colors. I chose a lemon yellow jumper to go over a white t-shirt with black bold letters on it and white converse. Let me know what you think!
