Outfit: Carhartt Check

I'll be completely honest and tell you that todays outfit wasn't really what I was planning to wear - In fact earlier on I had cute little cami top & kimono on, but decided to switch for something a bit thicker & a bit cosier. I think I'm turning into a complete old woman, it's the middle of August and I'm cold. Like what the hell?...

As much as I've complained about it being cold, I've still got my jelly shoes on, daft I know, but I wanted to show off my new beaded anklets. These were picked up from holidays in the local (what I call) 'tat shops' you know the type with the hugging salt & pepper pots and penis bottle openers.
Over my dusty pink top I've chucked on Dans' Carharrt checkered shirt - Honestly I want to buy one for myself, it's so thick and cosy :-) and just feels totally luxurious & expensive. Some things I think it's worth spending a bit more money on and getting something of really good quality, and this is one of those items. I don't think you can loose with something like this as I can't see checkered shirts going out of fashion any time soon - They're a good staple piece. I love the colours in this too, it reminds me of the classic red tartan print you get, in fact I'm after a red tartan cape at the moment so any tips on that would be very much appreciated.
As I'm on my way out I've thrown on my Topshop aviator jacket, I like how casual this looks especially with the (fake) sheepskin trim.
