The big tease

A little part of me is thinking about jacket free days already.  Like this one was.

Dress: H&M. Jumper: H&M for men. Shoes: Versace for H&M. Bag: Forever 21 bought 2 yrs ago. I like the Diego in this colour). Fedora: Trash and Vaudeville (Good choice of brimmed hats here and here).  Lipstick: MAC. Photos: Dapper Lou

Ahhh to be back to no jacket days. I know it’s coming. All the magazines and online retailers won’t stop nattering on about it either.  It a big tease really.

These pictures were taken toward the tail end of last year on one of those freakish mild days.  I wore a polka dot dress under a mens grey knit jumper (found this one online). I kept everything in similar colours so the focus stayed on the pink shoes (shown in this earlier post).  They’re actually too big for me but I loved em too much to not get them in the smallest mens size.
