Firstly, sorry for my lack of posting over the weekend. I dropped my phone into a sink full of water on Friday, so my little iPhone was residing in a coffin full of rice for three days! Thankfully, by some kind of miracle, it's absolutely fine and working again.
*FYI- Putting your phone into a sealed container with dry rice for a few days,in an airing cupboard, really does save your iPhone if it has been dropped into water.

Most of my favourite outfits are clean, simple and casual. I feel most at home in slightly boy-ish notes and always love mixing in monochrome, one way or another! This is what I wore last Thursday when I went into Manchester for the Whistles A/W Press Day with Charlotte from LurchHoundLoves. It had been hammering it down all day so I tried to dress practical chic...if that is such a thing! Luckily, as soon as I hit Manchester the sun was shining. 

What I wore:
Trench coat- H&M
Leather gilet- Robert Rodriguez at TK Maxx
Striped tee- Whistles
Jeans- Missguided
Trainers- Adidas
Backpack- Another 8
Lips- MAC in 'Ruby Woo'

I hope you had a lovely weekend and have got a good week ahead of you.
Thank you so much for reading
