Honestly, after living in all black for the last 12 years at least, I think it’s fair to say that nobody is more surprised than I am to see colour slowly appearing in my wardrobe. I know I’m hardly pushing the boat out and going vibrant Crayola brights, but the odd pop of red or yellow here and there is definitely making a difference to my wardrobe it must be said, and I’m enjoying styling these pieces so damn much.
When I visited home a few weeks ago I couldn’t resist a lil trip to Zara and of course headed straight for the slogan tees. Honestly, the day I manage to leave Zara without adding another slogan tee to my collection will be a sad day for all mankind, thankfully I think we’re a long way from that happening yet.
This one immediately caught my eye because I am currently obsessed with all things red, and I’d been looking for a slightly oversized red t-shirt for a little while now. Granted, this wouldn’t have been oversized if I hadn’t sized up but we’ll just forget that for a minute for the purpose of this blog post. I loved the slogan on it too – it kinda screamed all things anarchy and punk and stickin’ it to the man and I was feeling that on a deep level the day I made my purchase.
I wanted to style it up with my current favourite Zara leggings because let’s face it, I’ve barely worn anything else on my bottom half in recent weeks. My addiction to these leggings has honestly become so advanced that I’ve mourned their loss while they’ve been in the wash this week and my ability to style decent outfits has just completely fallen apart. I styled them with another new favourite in the form of these Stradivarius platform trainers that have barely been off my feet since I bought them and then decided to accessorise with my trusty forever love, Diet Coke.
Honestly I think posing with Diet Coke is going to be my new aesthetic. Reckon if I do it often enough they’ll sponsor me? Lol :’)
