Earth Tones.

I always love the warm tones, often edging towards them naturally - burnt oranges, rust, terra-cotta, tan, all reminding me of hazy summer evenings from my childhood. Glowing camp fires, my dad's various old camper vans, sun sets at the beach. Earth tones are unavoidable this season, with 1970s inspiration still glowing strong. 

The colour of this leather jacket captured my heart, and I love it teamed with my Megadeath T-shirt. The way it  extracts and pulls out the similar colours from the design on the T-shirt - it warms up what could be quite an fierce outfit, with it being a thrash metal band and all. Band T-shirts, old or new are a staple in my wardrobe, they an excellent way of getting that rock 'n' roll feistiness present at all times without having to sell your soul to the devil. I went for a medium size in the T-shirt so that it actually fitted more like a baggy mini dress. It comes up very, very short so I prefer it's long sleeves, to compensate. To complete this ultra earth tone outfit, I've gone for wooden heels. Easy goes with a nice backless clog in a gorgeous tan. The ones I am wearing are in actual fact Topshop and are very stable, but Kurt Geiger are doing a very similar version but with a nice sling back strap if you are after a bit more stability. To sharpen and finish, I've added heavy duty leather rucksack and a black fedora hat.
