Firstly, I just want to clarify it was really bright, hence my angry/squinty face. I’m not in a mood – unless this is just my relaxed bitch face? Anyway this weekend I ventured to Harewood House which is actually pretty much on my door step and considering I have lived in Leeds almost a year now, I can’t believe I’ve not visited sooner, it’s so beautiful (a dedicated post will follow with more details soon).

So this entire outfit, head to toe, is H&M (minus the bag).

This current in-between weather (not hot, not cold, 14-18 degrees, windy with a 40% chance of rain etc.) means it’s tricky to know how to dress. I thought I had finally managed to shake off my winter coats a few weeks back, but after shoving them to the back of my wardrobe, recently they have been creeping back into my life – not cool when it is now May!

With a slightly sunny week on the horizon I thought I’d jump at the chance to venture out in a t-shirt but it’s still a little nippy to get my legs out yet, so I strutted around in these “80s flares” as my boyfriend likes to call them.

I love these wide-leg trousers so much, they look almost red in these pictures but they are actually a gorgeous sort of rusty orange colour in real life. They are ridiculously comfy, yet still smart and striking. However, they do have one small flaw – they are an absolute bugger to iron! After being sat down for no more than 10 minutes the dreaded creases start to appear, even after all that meticulous ironing.

This t-shirt is a really nice bright addition to my wardrobe. It has a cute breast pocket and a button detail at the back, which makes it great to dress up with tailored trousers and skirts, but it also looks really laid back hung out on top of a pair of distressed jeans or some basic leggings.

I also threw on some MAC Lady Danger lippy which really pops in these pictures – usually a lip colour I only whip out for a night out, but I was feeling daring.
