Goths in hot weather

July 17, 2013

Oh my, it’s been sooo hot in the UK, it almost feels like I am back home in Portugal! Who would have thunk it? Last weekend I nearly died with the heat in London… photos yet to be shared as I’m still editing them. I took so many photos that it’s a bit hard to pick just a few for the blog.

Anyways, here’s a couple of outfits, with a variation on the same theme- a black and white patterned peplum top mixed in with some very roomy and also patterned palazzo pants. Mixing patterns is so much fun, although it does get some dirty looks in the office here and there…

Deet deets – Shoes and top – Target, Polkadot Palazzo Pants – Comme des Garcons for H&M, Bracelet – H&M, Necklace – Ebay, Glasses–  Gok Wan for Specsavers

Deet deets: Blazer and head bow – H&M, Top and socks – Next, Shoes – Office, via Ebay, Palazzo Pants – Zara (on sale, on my trip to Belgium)

Which one is your favourite?

    I gotta say I have a weakness for navy and white polka dots. Number one gets my vote. Tho I ALWAYS love baggy pants. Always. Cute.

    Your pattern-mixing is perfect. I love them both, although I’m drawn to red. I get dirty looks when I mix patterns too or maybe “puzzled” would be a better adjective. I always figure either I did it wrong, or I look like I got dressed in the dark. It’s still a bit of a challenge for me.

    The dirty looks come because you look so fabulous that you make everyone else feel frumpy and boring and they don’t like it. I like all your combos. The last one makes my eyes the most googly, which I love. Palazzo pants are a favourite ALWAYS.

    Love, love, love your print clash and WANT your glasses
    Do you live in Portugal all the year round?
    I hope the weather gets cooler when we get there next week.
    I am sick of being trapped in this horrid heat, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
