Military harems + gin + bus stops

Due to a wee bit of good news last night, I had an impromptu night out. This is bad because a) my hair was dirty and b) I was tired. I’m not one for letting little things like that get in the way of a good time, so after some curling and plaiting to disguise the hair and deciding that my work outfit was suitable, I headed off. Any Londoners will tell you last night was terribly humid, so my decision to stay in the harems was a little foolish. But nothing a couple of G&Ts can’t cure. Apologies for the randomness of these photos, it was late and said G&Ts were starting to kick in. 

I actually love these harems more than anything else in the world. When Spring came around, I was all for pastels, nudes and lace. But now I’ve evolved into embracing military chic. The pink oversize tee is obviously from when I liked nudes, I think it’s good to mix with military as it stops it looking too tough. The shoes are old favourites from ASOS, very strappy = I love them.
