After all this time?
This famous Harry Potter quote doesn't just describe Severus Snape's love for Lily James, but also my love and obsession with the Harry Potter world. It has been around 16 years since I picked up my first Harry Potter book, which was the Chamber of Secrets for some reason, but it feels just like yesterday. Since everyone and their mother's cat is aware that I love me some HP, every time a friend sees anything related to the Wizarding world I'm sent a picture of said thing. My friend Sarah Lee (yes, like Sara Lee desserts) picked up this "After all this time? Always" shirt for me while abroad and from the moment that I laid my eyes on it, I knew that I had to share on my blog. Today's the perfect day because it happens to be the day that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is released in cinemas across the world. I was lucky enough to win tickets to the premiere of the movie (Thank you Anis, read his review here), so I got to watch it with Maya before the rest of the muggles or no-mags (side note, it will ALWAYS be muggles to me... pfff Americans). I won't spoil the movie, but I will say that I really enjoyed it. It's visually stunning, it has some creepy moments but it's also hilarious. You don't have to be a Harry Potter lover to enjoy it, and not having watched the HP franchise shouldn't deter you from watching Fantastic Beasts. I'm most likely going to watch the movie again this weekend as well!
On to the outfit, I paired the shirt with my "distressed" jeans (which were skinny a couple of months ago but have now become boyfriendy) and my current favorite platform oxfords which I got from ASOS last month. I almost wore my leather jacket on top, but decided otherwise and instead went for my green checkered flannel from Zara. Since the 90's are apparently alive and well, I went for the tied around the waist look. I haven't decided whether I like it or not, but I kinda dig it with this outfit.
