OOTD: Mustard On Wildflower

Despite my persistent refusal to acknowledge its arrival, the winter is most definitely here.

After the longer than usual summer, I’m feeling very reluctant to get the jackets and coats out and give in to the harsh weather. However, having been brought up in the tropics, I can’t help but feel the cold, very much! So just for a little bit of protection and warmth, I dug out a jumper bought with an Outfit giftcard I received as a Christmas present from my good friend, Joycelyn. Thanks Joycelyn!

LB3Jumper: Burton | Shirt: Topman | Skinnies: Topman | Brogues: Jasper Conran

The entire outfit was inspired by the ever-changing landscape and colour of the Snake Pass, just under an hour drive outside Manchester. It’s one of my favourite retreats from the hectic city life I now lead. The general palette is intended to mirror the autumnal colour in the surroundings – the olive-y moss green in the skinnies and rotten leaf brown in the brogues. Same applies to the wildflower print shirt underneath the jumper, a reflection of the unpretentious, unprocessed nature… a bit like a camouflage, covered in mustard.

 

Love, Oliver

*Special thanks to my partner in crime, David for all the fabulous piccies… of me. 😉

      Thanks! The crossed arms wasn’t a pose… it was genuinely freezing cold out there but I’m glad you like the outcome!
