Black & Red Roses

The unseasonably warm weather has sadly gone on break, as it seems to every spring. I love the season, but sometimes it’s such a tease. Though I’m sad to see the sun go just after I started to get a bit of a tan, I’m not minding these cooler days. The sun will be back soon enough and it’s only going to get hotter. In the mean time, I’m trying to wear what I like to call tv/movie outfits.

In tv shows and movies the outfits always seem to be for lukewarm temperatures, as if they’re in an eternal mild spring (apart from the Christmas ones). It might sound weird, but where I live it’s either cold/windy/rainy and I need to seriously layer up or it’s so warm that I feel stupid if I’m wearing any layers at all. There are only a few days a year when it feels acceptable to wear a long sleeve shirt and shorts – normally if I’m wearing a long sleeve shirt, it’s too cold for shorts and vice versa.

For this rare occasion I chose to wear black & red roses, because I love wearing red on cloudy days. It’s perfect for adding brightness. I also added my chunky platform boots for a 90s vibe. In fact, I could imagine this as an outfit in a 90s movie.

Thanks for reading! What do you like to wear on cloudy spring days?

    Such a cool look! I absolutely love your tattoo!!
    I think the weather here in NYC has finally made up its mind, thankfully, so I’ve been just doing t-shirts and jeans!

    On cloudy days I like to wear jeans with sneakers, a light jacket ( also in jeans). And of course t-shirt. Or a dress with a jacket. I love how you styled this outfti. Kisses!

    Very cute outfit, the pop of color is perfect on a sunless day! Right now it has gotten a lot colder here, too. It doesn’t even feel like spring anymore with 12 degrees Celsius; more like autumn, so it’s back to a sweater. Though today I wore a hoodie 🙂

      Thanks! The tights were actually a last minute addition, I thought I’d be too cold with bare legs so I ran into a drug store to get them lol xx

    Love your outfit and your locations for shooting! It’s definitely nice to add some pops of color like red especially on your cloudy days. It’s sure to be warming for everyone around 🙂

      Haha so last night I was taking my dog out for a walk wearing sweatpants, a hoodie, wet hair, sneakers, none of the colours match and my neighbour who’s a model/stylist comes home looking super stylish, I felt like such a hobo beside him lol.
      Thank you babe! I guess practice makes perfect 🙂 xx
