I must confess I’ve never understood fawning over shoes (Jimmy Choos, Louboutins, Manolo Bhahniks – the lot). The way I see it- I’d rather treat myself to a holiday (or two). But then I saw a pair of shoes and fell in love. Seriously, how can you resist these?
Anyone who knows me knows of my unhealthy obsession with moustache motifs on tees, necklaces, totes, mugs, anything, everything! So when I saw moustaches on loafers- I had to have them. What’s more, I might have been cheeky and worn them everyday since I bought them 😉
I wore this outfit on the day Vid and I went hunting for street-art pieces in alleys, warehouses, and abandoned squat-houses in Berlin. We started with the mainstream East Side Gallery but ended up in a warehouse in Berlin’s most eclectic area, Kreuzberg.
Naturally I wanted to wear something comfortable- I chose an oversized slogan tee with high-waisted scalloped black shorts. The tee has ‘Nerd’ emblazoned across it- Vid bought it for me as a joke, but the geek in me loves it. I couldn’t resist pairing it with a pair of oversized geeky glasses. I pulled the outfit together with a beanie and an oversized denim shirt, with DIY gold studs on the shoulders.
I suppose this is the look trending as ‘Geek Chic’ these days- wonder if it still counts as a ‘look’ when an actual bookworm dons it?
Slogan Tee: Primark
Shorts: New Look

Loafers: Zara (these are now sold out, but Boohoo have a similar pair here)
