We’re shopping around from the cradle till death row

I braved the wind and the rain today for an outfit photograph, it's been a while! This is one of my favourite ensembles for a while, I felt snug as a bug in a rug and yet still pretty swish in my leather skinnies. This also gives you a sneaky peak of my new hair...

Gosh I'm so windswept haha! This isn't the best light for it but I've basically gone ombre again - I'll take some better photos in the week. I absolutely love it. I always feel a bit more myself when my hair is a little different (although as I typed that I did realise that every man and his dog has dip-dye in some form or other these days). I'm planning on going even lighter but will be doing so gradually so I don't completely murder my hair with bleach. Stay tuned for subsequent stages.

Anyway. Onto the outfit! These GORGEOUS skinny leather trousers were sent to me by Mary Jane Fashion, and I even cooed at the packaging, look!

They fit my little legs like an absolute glove and are super snug without being suffocating. Though I was unsure at first how to wear them, I decided oversized and mainly monochrome was the way to go. I'm mentally compiling a wishlist now of more oversized jumpers to add to my collection. Check out their website from the banner to your right...

How have you guys been? I felt the Twitter love last night with the #bbloggers discussion, let's catch up. Tell me what's been going on in your worlds.
