OOTD: Colourful

Wednesday, 18 February 2015
Coat: Missguided | Denim Shirt: Goodstock | T-Shirt: Goodstock | Jeans: Topshop | Boots: Asos

I really love finding cool street art while I'm here in Manchester...
I found this bright pink/orange graffiti right outside The Font Bar over on Oxford Road whilst attending the Rock on Ruby Blogger Meet/Clothes Swap, and I thought it made the perfect backdrop for my monochromatic outfit! How funky is it? I've heard that graffiti artists regularly change the art on this particular wall, so I'll definitely be checking back every few months just in case.

Although some of you may notice that my grid jacket by Missguided is pretty thin, I did layer it with an oversized denim tee snagged from Goodstock, which helped me keep warm without compromising the relaxed look of everything. Since the jacket was so busy with its print, I went for a very basic palette of all-black underneath. The top is another Goodstock find with perforations, and its boxiness complemented the skinniness of my jeans and boots.

I find these photos hilarious, though, as the t-shirt is obviously quite sporty and I am hardly what you would call fit! Also I completely forgot I was still wearing my name tag from the event, so you can see it peeking out, oops! Thoughts? x


  1. That graffiti looks amazing.

  2. I was a bit worried about how thin that coat looked actually... The wall looks so cool and the black and white really stands out against it! Love!!

  5. Great layering! I really dig street arts and usually check them out in Shoreditch and Bricklane in London. I'd really realy ove to visit Manchester as I've never been. Loving your blog by the way. It was nice bumping to you on instagram :)
