We have had slightly warmer weather the past few days, so I have swapped my heavy coat for a sheepskin gilet. My outfit today is all about natural tones and colours.
I was first bitten by the vintage bug in 1983, borrowing my grandma's 60s kitten heeled sling backs - they had toes so pointed you could have impaled anyone you kicked. I carefully borrowed a few of grannie's pieces - mostly shoes, jewellery and handbags to add to my puff ball skirts, explosive hair and wrist to elbow silver slave bangles.
It's less than two weeks until Christmas, and while some of us are totally sorted with the decorations, some of us are still in need of a little inspiration. Here are some of my favourite styling ideas for the festivities, which are very simple but yet truly effective.
A very good friend and I recently had a random chat and wellies came up in the conversation. Having now spent 9 years in London, this year I finally succumbed - (I couldn't take the rain anymore earlier this year) and had to go and buy these wellies.
Jewel tones are my favourite colours and today I'm wearing a deep rich hue of purple. It has a side neck tie which dresses up the outfit and keeps me warmer as well. I have paired it with the Zara 'tweed' style jacket I wore a few posts ago.
Someone mentioned that I haven't posted anything I've been wearing for the evenings in the last couple of months....so here we go!
I don't wear these shoes often, only when I feel that I need a pop of colour. They are the classic YSL tribute sandals and come in literally every colour and texture every summer season. I adore the patent texture of these shoes as they are easy to clean!
I loathe jeans shopping. Hatehatehate it. If they fit on the waist they don't fit round my thighs, if they fit round the waist and the thighs, chances are they look like mega flares from the knee down and being a short-arsed 5'2" I have to turn everything up anyway so I have no business with unnecessary material.
You can never go wrong with a grey t-shirt! So a grey t-shirt with a peplum hem? Match made in heaven! But I'm not going to lie, I wasn't so sure this would fit me all right at first. For t-shirts, I usually opt for v-necks as it suits me better, but for the price (a mere £13 quid) and fit, I thought to myself - well, why not give it a go?
Hello, summer in London! I can finally start wearing short sleeves for the first time this year without carrying around a jacket! I'm wearing a very easy and simple outfit... T-shirt, jeans, wedges and a chunky gold necklace to dress it up a little!
