The Basketball Tee


(Jeans – Similar, Tee – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Watch – Exact, Shades – Exact, Bracelet – Exact)

You may remember this Topshop Basketball Tee from my new purchases post that I made last week. Since it’s been plenty warm enough to actually go out in just a t-shirt, this is the first time that I actually got to wear it! I wore it to the Botanical Gardens on Sunday when I went to go and relax, feed the squirrels and birds and just enjoy the Spring time! It’s such a beautiful place and it’s one of my favourites when the weather is warmer. I take nuts and seeds and often sit in a quiet spot and feed the squirrels and birds from my hands as they can be quite tame if they trust you. I plan on posting more photos soon though! I’m really enjoying nature at the moment!

I paired my Basketball Tee with my trusty black Levi’s Skinny Jeans as these are one of my go to’s when it comes to black! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable, so they couldn’t be better if they tried! To keep with the black theme, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black to add some height and femininity to the look and then lots of accessories! I chose my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Black Critter Watch which I got from Shade Station, then also my Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Red Velvet, which you just saw yesterday! For bracelets, I went with my Bibi Bijoux Blue Crystal bracelet and a couple of others from ASOS. I’m really loving being able to wear lots of arm candy again! I never get much chance to wear it during the Winter as being a UK fashion blogger means I have to adapt to the seasons and long sleeves are always needed. It’s a nice change to be able to layer on my bracelets again! I hope you like the outfit and I have a cool post coming up on Sunday for Easter! I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below!

    Another example of the magic of those Louboutins.
    As far as I’m concerned, you could have worn them just with a matching lipstick and a sweat suit, and still look divine πŸ™‚
    But the skinny jeans will do just nicely, too. Perfectly in line with your style of casual-sweetness-
    meets-discreet-sexiness. As usual, you’re the best, Lorna. I hope you had a nice easter break ?

        Very nice easter – Perfect spring weather, yesterday we had the warmest day in Denmark so far this year, 21.6 degrees. Perfect for an backyard version of the traditional danish style easter lunch, where we with friends and family over-indulge in our beloved ryebread with marinated herring, shrimps, smoked herring, salmon etc…. All downed with cold beer and akvavit (our local ‘firewater’). Perfect weather for walking the piers of our local yacht harbor, and pick up an ice-cream there. Perfect weather for giving the much neglected garden its first serious shaping-up this season. And perfect weather to just take a snooze in the backyard hammock, and having guilty-pleasure dreams about a certain english easter bunny I know. Best part about getting back to work tomorrow: that it’s only a four-day week.

          Our weather rained all day ha ha, but we had a lot of nice warmer days before and today was quite nice too, so that made up for it. We just shared a family dinner yesterday, nothing too fancy. You are lucky for it to be in the 20s!

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
