Double Denim

A fashion faux pas? Not any more. I mean I'm not saying we should go all out Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake like back in 2001, no I don't think anyone should try that...

I'm talking the early 90's when - as my mum always reminds me- "everyone was rocking the double denim". 

I guess denim on denim can still be classed as a "rule breaker" like my style stalking fashion book puts it. But, also like the book says; styled the right way it can look oh so elegant. 

I have been searching for ever for the perfect denim shirt. I didn't want it to be too light of a wash or too dark of a wash, then I finally found this denim shirt from new look when searching the asos website.

I styled my denim shirt with a pair of darker wash skinny jeans and my slip ons. But another way I love to style double denim is with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and court heels. 

Shirt - New Look
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Zara (once again… I just can't get enough of these shoes.)

Are you going to 'break the fashion rules' this season and sport a double denim look or as my mum puts it "rock the double denim?"

Ladies who Brunch

As bad as it is, I'm not a breakfast person at all. I never really have been, but I can honestly say I love going to brunch. Me and my cousin Zoe are always looking for new places to try out and we both felt like going to Notting hill so I looked around at some places where we could eat and came across Granger & Co, it is an australian chain restaurant and we decided to give it a go. We probably didn't pick the best day to go because as it is a very popular place and it is also a sunday; there was a rather long queue outside but we decided to wait it out, and let me tell you I'm so glad we did, haha.

I got scrambled eggs with sough-dough toast and avocado and Zoe got ricotta hotcakes, but we ended up eating half then swapping plates because they were both so nice and we just had to try both, haha. 

After finishing up our very very delicious lunch we headed a bit down the road to portobello market, stopping every few minutes to take a picture of the very pretty area that is notting hill.

After walking through the market, trying on a pair of Ozzy Osbourne sunglasses and walking past the temptation that is the best chocolate waffles ever we got to the pastel coloured houses that I'm so in love with where we took a few 'ootd' pictures.

This has honestly been my 'go to' outfit this easter break. Its that outfit that I can just quickly throw on and look at least a little presentable, haha.

tshirt - Topshop
jeans - Topshop
blazer - Topshop
shoes - Zara
bag - Balenciaga

(if you can't tell I quite frequently shop in topshop, haha)

On a side note, who else desperately wants to be at coachella !! How amazing does it look, ughh … one day.

Anyway I hope everyone has a lovely sunday - or what is left of it…
