Diamond Jubilee #2

As per usual in the UK, yesterday's bank holiday arrived hand-in-hand with a bucketful of rain. Even after a couple of hours, - in which one would expect the weather to brighten up-, the clouds failed to disappear, so my conscious was filled with a constant worry of whether or not there would be a sudden outburst of raindrops. Although water and suede are often assumed to be arch-enemies, I decided to take a risk and weat my Underground Creepers (sprayed with Topshop's shoe protector, just to be on the safe side), which I paired with black opaque tights to create a clean silhouette.

Channelling the Diamond Jubilee colour scheme, I thought it would be appropriate to incorporate this nave Cotton/Nylon mix Tommy Hilfiger Sweater into my outfit, elaborating its simplicity with this gorgeous floral chiffon mullet skirt from Zara. To shield me from the slight chill, - inevitable British weather which we cannot escape, even on the few days of celebration-, I wore my brown faux-leather Zara jacket with quilted lining, and slung my vintage beaded bag over my shoulder to carry essentials for the day's events.
