checks and stripes

jumper - urban outfitters (sale), shorts - urban outfitters, shoes - H&M (old), rings - topshop & primark, earrings - primark

I wore this outfit whilst I was in Leeds for the Tour de France, due to my quick editing skills, it's fairly obvious that someone has been cut out of this picture for the purpose of the outfit post (I'll post the original picture below - it's with Christian Prudhomme who's the race director of the Tour de France). I love the trend of stripes and checks together and I love the fact it's becoming more and more acceptable in fashion. I picked up these cute little shorts in the sale in Urban Outfitters and although they're quite wintery, the weather wasn't amazing so I felt they were acceptable to go to the parade the riders were doing through Leeds city centre. I'm a huge monochrome fan and wear it a lot (probably too much) but I love the simplicity of this whole outfit! The jumper's super cosy and after much deliberation, I left it untucked from the shorts as it was a little too thick to be tucked in and for me to get away with it!

I'm obsessed with the shoes from H&M and after only a couple of months of having them, I've nearly worn them to death (they were cheap so I can't complain) and in dire need of finding a similar replacement!
