It’s Friday already!! Where’s the week gone?? This is starting to feel almost like a weekly update in the past couple of weeks… I might as well just do OOTW(eek) instead. lol All jokes aside, I have some exciting plans coming up in the next few days, including another outfit update (YES!! Two in the space of a week) and a little extra something that accompanies so watch this space!!
After my last predominantly black and white OOTD, here you have one with actual colours. On the surface, this seems a pretty simple outfit – a jumper layered on a shirt, thrown in some jeans and shoes, but here I try to make a rather basic ensemble a little bit more interesting by playing with the shades
I personally adore the soft hue of this Topman jumper – it’s tender but also quite bold at the same time. It’s not your everyday colour and I do understand that it’s not to every man’s taste but it is undoubtedly one of my most daring choices of knitwear and sooooo my cup of tea!! I mean just the colour itself is strong enough to make a statement as far as menswear goes. Plus, the texture feels really lovely. It’s very comfy to wear and amazingly warm even in this single-digit low temperature. On top of all that, it’s on sale for £17 only so it would seem criminal not to really…
As you must have noticed, since it’s pretty difficult to miss, I colour-matched the jumper with these Frank Wright desert boots. I have to say it was quite a task finding shoes in this colour… you’ll be surprised how boring mens footwear can be at times. It took me some efforts and several trips around town before I spotted them on the chaotic shelves of TKMaxx – which is a brilliant place for shoes, if you have an hour or five to rummage through their collection. I love it there because it’s like a massive footwear treasure hunt everytime I pop in… you may even find yourself a pair of Marc Jacobs loafers *hint, hint*.
Anyway, I hope you like my outfit and the subtle (or not) pun in the title… and remember to come back in a couple of days for the little surprise I have for you!!
