double stripes


leather jacket, bag, shirt - h&m, shorts - topshop, shoes - topshop via ebay

quick outfit photos. i decided to see what mixing stripes would look like - to be honest i'm still not sure. it looks a bit like an optical illusion! it was also an excuse to wear these shorts for the first time, i got them in the topshop sale, and i'd been looking for some like these for a while. only con is that they might be a little too hotpant-ish for my liking, i prefer slightly looser fitting shorts, as i don't have the smallest of thighs!

i'm getting a little sick of my leather jacket, too. it's either this or the denim jacket as my top layer these days and i'm getting a bit weary of it!

  7. i love all the stripes, i actually think it works really well! i've only had my denim jacket a while & am wearing it constantly so i know what you mean...maybe a military inspired jacket is the answer? :)

  8. I really like it, and I love how you paired it with your leather jacket (even though you are sick of it). Understand about the shortness but overall you look absolutely fabulous :)
