Long Laidback Summer

Trousers - Blitz Vintage, Tee - Topman, Backpack - Topman, Sandals - New Look, Belt - Topshop

I feel like all my posts are inspired by Spring/Summer 15 collections at the moment - there was just so much I loved though! MSGM was the main inspiration for this look. I finally managed to find a true vintage pair of high waisted trousers from Blitz Vintage (one of my favourite vintage shops in East London), in a fantastic grey check - bang on trend for next Spring/Summer. They are made from a really lightweight fabric, and have a slightly wider leg then I am used to wearing, and therefore perfect for creating a more laidback look. Emulating MSGM's collection, I clashed the check of the trousers with a bold striped tee. I also wanted to clash the smartness of the trousers with casual elements, so I accessorized with sandals and a backpack. I was thinking of adding a bit of colour to this outfit - but we all know that's just not my style! So, as usual, I went with monochrome. If I had one, I would have layered a grey tropical print pac-a-mac over this look, but unfortunately this is a very specific thing to find, and I can't time travel to next summer to buy the MSGM one when it goes on sale. I'll keep looking for one though! It would certainly be a worthwhile investment with this 'sunny one minute, raining the next' weather we're having at the moment.
