Isabel Marant Boris Tee, 2 outfits

Wednesday, 20 June 2012
summer1
Outfit: Isabel Marant Boris T-Shirt, Uniqlo rolled up denim shorts (similar here or here) and The Kooples wedge sneakers (similar here).




I used to think that it's such an English thing to moan about the weather. Now that I'm living in the UK, I've concluded that the temperamental weather is enough to drive anyone to despair. The ominous dark clouds are forever looming overhead so a ray of sunshine may disappear within a blink of an eye. I used to live in flip flops and shorts in New Zealand. Here, I'm always prepared with a jacket, raincoat, appropriate footwear and an umbrella because frankly speaking, the drowned rat look is not in vogue these days. See what I mean? I'm moaaaniiinng.

  1. Lol! Yes, well today and for one day only you can indulge in the first outfit :-) It's so sad that we've come to have a 'fantasy dressing' situation due to lack of a Summer for the 2nd year running in UK. Great looks!

  2. When I was in the UK in 2006 pulling pints with my best friend - I remember thinking when I got home that I wasnt warm once in the whole 6 months haha so you all have a right to complain I say!!! :) Love this outfit inspiration! I'll be back in the UK in a mere 42 days so need all the style and outfit inspiration I can get ;) P.s thank you sooooooo much for your email! I found it and have since replied xx

  4. It's supposed to be 97 degrees (or I should say 36 degrees!) here today. You can take some of that heat please.

  5. You totally have the rights to complain becayse if i lived there i would probably express my pain and agony in the same way. I can only handle so much of rain and cloudy days. Love what you put together here, the first assemble is childish and fun while the second assemble is chic and playful. According to the weather here, i will have to go with the look # 1.

    The salmon burger patties were a store brought version which taste sooooo good, you wont get that salmon unique odor. They make them fresh and ready to put on the grill. I will have to examine closely and decode what they put in. Two of the ingredient that i can taste are fresh basil and lemon juice.

  6. Love the first pairing the most, perfect for Dubai weather. I love England, maybe because I spent like 10 days per visit but I know that the weather can be terrible. I've experienced cloudy, rainy and sunny all within 5 minutes in England!

  11. Today, I would go for the first regardless of the fact that I don't have the legs for it. The second would suit me better and I do love the jacket - perfect proportions and excellent pockets! And what's that about the Kooples sneakers in the sale ... you are the temptress!

    1. They're down to £176 from £220. I even had a 2 year old who walked up to see to say she liked my thoothes. Can't argue with a 2 year old princess, right?

    2. Did she like your thoothes? Little Fashionista in the making. Might take little George into the Kooples tomorrow (he's my get out clause if it gets too much for me with all those fashionable assistants in there ... and it's always empty in the Leeds store so they will stare at me even more).

  12. That top is great, and I really just love that jacket too! Both outfits are styled so cool like you always do, and even if you can't wear the first one, I'm hoping better weather days are coming soon so you can! :)

  19. Fantastic outfits! I'm so in love with your wedge sneakers. I'm always moaning about the weather too. We're having a heat wave now so I would love to have some cooler temperatures.
