air traffic control

Jacket: Urban Outfitters. Shorts & grey jumper: H&M Men. Boots: Nine West. Shades: Ray Ban. Satchel: Cambridge Satchel Company. (11″ inch). (Also avail in US in yellow/red/brown here). Watch: Gucci
Michael calls the satchel air traffic control.  Hold one in each hand and I could guide a plane from the runway into it’s gate. Actually I can visualize that….. 
This one and the kelly green are my faves.   Apart from the obvious S/S season, I’m reeeeeally looking forward to wearing them in winter – less expected and so more fun I think? 
I found these shorts at H&M men and reeeeeally loved the straight cut – like a pair of trousers hacked off.  Sometimes I want to be a bit more androgynous. You don’t see women’s shorts like that so I grabbed these in white and in pale pink (they’re cheap and come in about 6 colours so go try a pair on).  The shorts and jacket don’t match but it doesn’t matter. It’s the same colour fam – good enough.  
ps. The winner of the Deep Sea Fish ring is Becky Colley.  Congratulations 🙂

    Karen, I love this outfit! I mean, I love all your outfits, but something about this one is just so unique! I definitely love shopping in the men’s dept, but I never try their bottoms. You are the second blogger this week who I’ve seen rock some men’s bottom-wear, which leads me to believe it is a sign that I need to scope some of their stuff out, haha!

    The mix of ivories and greys is beautiful! Most people don’t ever dare to do it.

    As for the shorts, saw a paint speckled one in H&M’s men’s section over the weekend and fell in love with it. This post is a sign that I need to get it. Haha.
