Patio Palazzo

 

I've been wanting to shoot a little blog post in our teeny tiny patio since we moved in. Granted there's not much to it but I simply adore the pretty arch and painted gate, and it's just the right size for us - to be honest having any sort of outside space is a like a little piece of heaven after our garden-free London life. Not only do we have this patio but our spare bedroom also boasts a pretty sizeable balcony that probably should be used for sunbathing or something but truthfully it gets a bit too hot up there for my liking so I tend to stay downstairs.

 

These palazzo pants (a recent charity shop score) are a perfect manifestation of my current floral obsession - although this is the first time I've actually worn them. I've had a penchant for wide-leg trousers for years so I was thrilled to nab a pair that were able to fulfill both my need for comfort and flamboyance... even though I tried to counteract the crazy with some chambray.

 

 

The weather's been a wee bit haywire over the last week so today was the first chance I've had to don these badboys - and may I say, they were the perfect option to wear to lunch... even after a hefty midday meal I had plenty of room to breath. I know I'm sporting yet another denim shirt but am I the only one who's building a serious collection? It's a problem that shows no sign of stopping - not that i'm complaining.

Afterwards, I realised that even though I'd bought the garments in separate places including ASOS they're actually all the same brand (New Look) - unusual for me, but I guess I'm liking their collection at the moment. Not to worry though, our local vintage store has a pretty good selection right now that is bound to reset the equilibrium in my wardrobe.
