Classics for times of less time...

"Fashion is mysterious, as a rule. Why are blue jeans a classic? You just hit on something that happens to be timeless and right."
-Diane von Furstenberg

Sometimes life is busy and you have a day where you don't really want to wear anything fussy, all you need is the classics that you know will get you through the day. This outfit comes from a day where I had a full day of lectures then bloggers club in the evening. So even though it would have been nice to be wearing something trendy. I went with a combo of tried and tested classic pieces that would follow me through the busy day fuss free.

shirt - Gmarket
jeans - Esprit
leather jacket - Just Jeans
shoes - converse
nails - Essie 'Splash of Grenadine'

It was quite windy on this particular afternoon, so taking any outfit photos without the *there's hair in my mouth ew ahh clothes everywhere* face was tricky. In the end there were the acceptable windswept ones above. 

P.S for more ways to style a plaid/flannel shirt this week we made a video about it here :)
