Bank Holiday Outfits and New Clothes

Some of the clothes that I bought with my birthday money have arrived although there are still a few more to come. My outfits this weekend have been mainly based around new clothes. Following the royal wedding, white and lace have definitely been on my mind. This lace waistcoat, flared jeans and shoes by Brazilian designer, Alexandre Herchcovitch for Melissa were some of my new goodies. I don't often wear jeans anymore, perhaps because I have got so fed up with skinny jeans and they don't really work with any of my shoes for summer. Flared jeans seem to work much better for me though and I love the seventies trend which looks set to be around for a while so I decided to invest in pair.

Flared jeans are on their way back - I'm getting kind of sick of skinny jeans, too.
