Khaki.....you know I love you.

Khaki has the quite the reputation and a lot of history behind it. During the Second Boer War, the British Army were known as Khakis because of their uniform. For me the colour represents authority, but it also airs a certain casual feel too. This is probably down to GAP! I recently purchased a khaki shirt dress in the TOPSHOP sale; it's a Topshop Unique garment so it was almost a sin not to buy at for £15!!!
I l.o.v.e this dress. During Winter I am going to wear it with chunky knit tights, thick woolly socks and my every trusty worker boots. It will also accommodate my "winter food baby belly" just fine......


Please excuse the creases!I would have ironed them, but you ain't my mother ;O)
These fit so well, I was going to buy a pair in every colour!! I got them from MISS SELFRIDGE. I love the little pleat detailing in the front and the turn ups on the bottom. They are lovely and slim on the leg, so I'll either invest in a pair of brogues or I can sex them up with heels. I thought these may suffice!
Now we're talking! Power Shoes with Power Pants.....I think I just cringed slightly on the inside.

Isn't the detail on this ring sweet??You'd never guess I got it in H&M!! I loves me a bargain.

  2. I love all of it, especially those
    shoes. Khaki will always be remarkable
    because it's so timeless, and definitely
    a key sub colour for a/w.
