#OOTD; How I Wear My Flannel Check.

// Spiked Fedora: Missguided // Necklace: Dorothy Perkins // 
// Fur Gilet: Vintage // Checkered Flannel Shirt: Vintage // 
// Wet Look Panel Leggings: Missguided // Socks: H&M // 
// Platform Chelsea Boots: Missguided // White Watch: Swatch // 

Oh my god, its bloody windy today! 
I nearly got blown away while taking these outfit posts, using a self-timer was funny as a few photos ended up with my hair swept all across my face and my top in the air!

I've gone for a grunge-indie look today while sporting my favourite vintage checkered flannel shirt!
The best checkered shirts I'll admit are Men's - they are always thicker & made of a lot sturdier material. 
I'm currently on the look out for some more vintage thick checked-flannel shirts so if you see any throw the links my way? 

I love this check shirt because its oversized, thick and really baggy, which means I can roll the arms up and they just droop, I love that look. 
Again I kind of look like a bit of a hill-billy? But I seem to like this look recently.
I can't stop wearing my new Missguided Spiked Fedora and platformed Chelsea Boots, even though the wind did try and steal my hat off me, how rude!
I thought it would be most appropriate to add in my crazy feather chain necklace so I could enjoy it jingling about (which started to get annoying) but mainly so I could complete my indie, cowboy, grunge look? 

I don't know how else to describe this, but I love it.
The thing I love the most about putting together outfit posts for this blog is that I'm always discovering new styles and new ways to wear and mix up my wardrobe!
I think I'm going to sport this look on Sunday to a local vintage market which I can't wait to check out, hopefully I can nab some bargains.

Also some exciting news;
