Blending in khaki


knitted tank – Topshop (last worn here)
pants – Gap (last worn here)
flicker court – Aldo (ON SALE – limited sizes)
aviator – H&M, pashmina – gifted
tassel necklace – Mango (ON SALE!)
watch – Michael Kors, bracelets – various
leather bag – Autograph @ M&S, natural white nail polish – George @ Asda

coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo

What a shame khaki is the same shade as so many very unappealing things because it really is one of my favourites.  In the notable absence of anything with a legitimate camouflage print (this was close but not quite), I went for the khaki pants in an effort to come in ‘on trend’.  The pressure…

I am aware that it may look obscure that I am in a park in these heels but let me walk you through this.  I work about 300m from home (the irony is that I probably still arrive 1 minute late for work 4 days a week… and sometimes I drive… shameful).  The walk to work is through the park and up these stairs on the other side.  I don’t take Mr K to work but I do walk him many times a day in aforementioned park.  Often the husband meets me with the camera and dog (or vice-versa) because he works about 280m from home, across the road from my work.  It’s a very lovely world we live in, affectionately known as ‘the bubble’.

      I know! I used to work about 200m from home but then we upgraded to bigger premises – I was nervous I may have to actually travel to work but fortunately we found somewhere almost as close 😉

    I love that you paired the simple open knit top with the pants- a tiny splash of yellow. 🙂

    • Thankfifi Posted 22 Aug at 9:48 pm

      Glad you like it! When I looked back at the shots I wasn’t too sure about the necklace!

  9. REBECCA Posted 22 Aug at 8:23 pm

    I’m also a big fan of khaki & olive because it’s truly blendable with anything…..like that little pop of neon yellow! You’re truly blessed to live so near your place of work!!


    • Thankfifi Posted 22 Aug at 9:48 pm

      I know – all our friends joke because we hardly ever need to leave our ‘bubble’!

      I know I am so lucky! Hasn’t always been this way but it sure would make it hard to ever move or change jobs!
