The Northern Diaries: Day 1

This will be a short post, since the outfit I wore upon my arrival to Manchester was very simple and didn’t have much pizazz to it. The reason being that I spent over four hours on the bus – so I had to prioritize comfort over style! Not that you have to choose one or the other, but I’m still working on finding a healthy balance…

I must say that I really love all of these items individually though – it’s like I’ve worn all my basics at the same time. The Melissa for Vivienne Westwood flats are a classic in my wardrobe, they’re the comfiest shoes I’ve got. I got the skirt about a year ago from Urban Outfitters and I use it loads – I realised that having a black fitted jersey skirt is so damn practical, it’s probably one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. The pretty little cardigan is from Bershka and was a present from my friend Patty, who’s well aware of my bow fetish…

No need to introduce the satchel…

I spotted this red pocket tee in Primark last month and had to have it, it came in quite a few different colours and I ended up getting the brown version as well. I’ve been in love with pocket tees for ages and have got quite a collection going – I really like this tee’s loose fit and the fabric, it’s just perfect for summer… The orangey red shade is great too, but don’t trust the picture below, the first ones are more reliable colour wise.

OK, so the pocket is really subtle and barely there, but it is – and it makes all the difference…

That’s it for today, I’ll be back with a much more fun post soon.
