In true Abbie style, I woke up on Sunday morning with the worst hangover. I went home at the weekend to see my friend for a ‘drink’ which of course ended in us staying out until 3am – I expected nothing less.
Despite feeling slightly under the weather, I had planned to go for brunch with my nearest and dearest Emily, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to do my favourite thing with my favourite person.
I figured that there is nothing that can make you feel better than lace and leather – possibly the most fierce duo there is.
Surprisingly, I managed to style my matted hair and eye bags into an actual look.
I wore some (faux) leather culottes from Stradivarius because as I have mentioned before, they are my go to when I don’t feel so great. The fact that these are leather make them look a little more fashion and a little less lazy mess which is ideal for me. This is actually the first time I have worn these out as I was a little dubious as to how I could make them work without being accused of wearing a bin bag.
I paired these with a nude lace top from Topshop to add a girly twist to the look. I love lace and leather together because they contrast each other so well. The trousers are very bold, I wanted to add a touch of sophistication to them so I didn’t look like a complete goth.
To add another texture, I wore this (faux) fur coat from Topshop; I got this in the sale for £50! A! Dream! It’s so warm and ridiculous and over the top I love it.
Because I am so small, I have to wear a heel with this coat or I just look ridiculous. I was still slightly unstable from the night before, so I thought it was best to opt for these kitten heeled boots from New Look premium. A year ago I wouldn’t have even contemplated a kitten heel but these are one of my current staples; they are so classic and elegant.
Lastly, I threw on this Zara bag to finish the outfit. The chain and stud detail adds to the ‘biker chic’ look perfectly without make it too extra.
Speaking of extra, I really ought to stop going out like this in Kenilworth. It’s all well and good looking like a snobby rich b*tch in London but people aren’t as open-minded at home and I get a few odd looks from the local old people!
