WHAT TO WEAR ON DARK, DULL, RAINY DAYS

Sometimes you need to dress like you are going to a funeral. We cant all jump out of bed singing 'Its a beautiful day' whilst skipping to the shower, having an angel shit then getting an uber into work. Things are just not that simple! Occasionally I do get out of bed on the wrong side, I do get a little moody sometimes (don't we all) and I do shout the house down when I stub my toe rather than politely whispering 'ouch that hurt' through my teeth. I have learnt recently that it is good to be expressive for good or bad so if you feel like shit, just go with it and if you feel great, well good on you - just don't make eye contact and smile on the tube, know your limits!

It wouldn't be a typical english bloggers post without mentioning the weather but lately with the weather being more autumn than summer so I have plenty of time to throw on black. 

I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It’s still my symbol of rebellion — against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others’ ideas.

Right now I'm loving wearing Converse Chuck Tailor All Star trainers, wearing them with no socks and rolled up jeans just above the ankles. This has been a phase I have gone through over the last couple of months and converse are not the most comfortable of trainers so my feet are beaten up a little now. So I was very happy to try the new Converse Chuck Taylor II sneakers this week, my life is complete! It's like upgrading from a Polo to a Golf or a Costa to a Lavazza - the same good design just a damn sight better.

The look is simple, I have gone for an All-Saints black print short sleeved shirt, ASOS skinny black jeans and as mentioned white Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.
