The calm during the storm

I loved the safari edit in Burda Style February 2016, having always been fascinated with both utility pants vibes and summer carefree style.

The good news is style doesn’t have to die during winter! Throw on some tights and make up this pattern in a thicker fabric such as corduroy.

The pattern used here is: Shorts 111 A in 2/2016

The deck on my room was covered in hail the other day and stormy weather portraits are some of the best, so I bit the bullet and stood out in the hail – anything for the art!

It isn’t obvious in photos but the tights are magical and sparkly and the shoes are deep green velvet. <3

    Hi there everyone I’m sorry I just want to make a comment to say I cannot take credit for the hooded top design, I would like to discourage copying the pattern of the top, as the design belongs to ManakaHandmade, who runs her own fashion line which she also models for! I mean technically you can replicate anything, but please try to support artists as much as possible.

    The only reason I did copy the pattern was because I love her work and after buying the purple top of hers, I really wanted to own one in this certain fabric I bought because it was a nice fleecy merino :) So please check out her collection, it is beautiful and she is such a lovely, peaceful, inspiring person :)

    You can buy the top from:http://manakacollection.com/shop/clothing/one-size-fairy-pixie-hooded-top/

    These shorts are so beautiful! And the top as well! Is that also a Burda pattern? <3
