The Daily Uniform

As it turns out, I have a lot of grey clothes. It’s a really, really wearable colour – which is probably preaching to the flippin’ choir but I really like the colour grey. It’s not too clinical (white, white and more white), or too dark (black as the depths of night), but a nice in between depending on your mood. Also it’s really close to silver and I fudging love silver. 

Also, fishtail braids are so pretty but take a flippin’ age to do.

beanie: asos

quilted bomber jacket: taobao

sweater: taobao

jeans: h&m

shoes: ebay

I don’t think I particularly suit beanies. I’ve worn this one a grand total of twice since I bought it in the asos sale last year, but I’m determined to wear it more. The lil’ patch on it says ‘no brand needed’ which: ha. hahahaha. But I think it’s really cute. 

The sweater and the jacket are from TaoBao, and for the price (cheap, basically) the quality is ah-may-zing. I’ve worn the jumper multiple times since it arrived last year and it’s so snuggly and so warm and soft – it was basically £5. The jacket I saw, really liked, and now I’m tempted to get the pink one too (but won’t because I’m putting myself on a spending ban). It cost about £11? Roughly? You’ll see soon enough how good the quality is and why I’m so in love soon. 

Jeans are old h&m, you know their £9.99 black ones? Or the ones they used to do? Yup those. Still in love, these are ridic well worn. 

The boots are from eBay. Chantel rocked up to mine in a pair and I decided that we needed to twin. Though mine are patent and come with handy zips.

I promise one day I’ll look more amused in photos. Also today was the first time I’ve EVER done fishtail braids I’m so proud of myself.

It’s the little things. :’)

    I also love wearing grey, and I think it looks great with black and white and like you say, tones down the bright white and white and darkness of all black. Haha, I LOVE your fishtail braid. I am still to figure out how to do them!Sarah xxx

    Grey, as well as navy, are my two favorite neutral colors to wear! I feel you on the fishtail braids, my hands get tired and cramped from doing them, plus they never turn out like the Pinterest photos ahaAngelina Is | Bloglovin'

      These were about £10 from eBay! They're really, really light though, so ice and hills and basically winter aren't fun in them :') But they're super easy to walk in and YES. LET ME ENABLE YOU. 😀
