You may recognize this parka jacket from my leather sleeve jacket diy. I loved the finished result but ended up buying myself a leather sleeved parka that wasn't as heavy. So seen as though I wasn't wearing my own version as much I removed the leather sleeves and turned it into a sleeveless creation. It's perfect because now I can wear it over leather if I choose to - or over jumpers, shirts and tops giving myself whatever sleeve I desire! Today I have layered it over a sheer white shirt and khaki green vest from Topshop.

I made a camo clutch bag for my friend Alison at Christmas and I was so jealous I needed to make myself one too! It's a great casual everyday bag for when you need to pop out for a few things and can just chuck your keys, phone and money all into the one slouchy compartment. I'm going to be showing you how I made it and how you can make one too on Friday - so make sure to check back very soon.

I think this outfit sums up my favourite colour palette of the moment. Black, white and khaki. With some gold jewellery thrown in. It's easy and it suits everyone.

  1. That's amazing the camo clutch! I wish I was talented enough to be able to DIY to that extent. This is such a clever way of layering up as it looks effortless and stylish. Plus you don't look like Joey on friends all bulked up! xx
