Quite a colourful one for you today. I'm not the biggest fan of purple when it comes to clothes but this Marni coat of mine is quite the exception, I know I don't wear it a lot, mainly because it's such a strong piece but for spring and early summer it's always nice to pull out.
I had wanted to wear it with this polka dot skirt since last spring but the chance never came about, so this time I made sure that this combo happened. I layered the light coat over this heavier leather jacket from Set as we all how complimentary a strong colour can look teamed with a neutral one and plus, the biker jacket bought a subtle but effective edge to the look. I wore my Cos green knit to break up the blend of the coat, jacket and skirt and finished of with my classic navy courts and my colour-block clutch.
Well I hope you all have a colourful day. Take care lovelies,
So here is one of my favourite buys for this winter, this amazing gilet by 2nd DAY. I bought it about a month ago and have been really looking forward to wearing it. I remember trying it on when I first unwrapped it from its My Wardrobe tissue paper and showing my mum with her then proceeding to say that I looked like a sheep in reply to that I said, well the chicest damn sheep you'll ever see!
I can't say that this outfit was styled around this jacket, it was more about trying to style these old summer shorts of mine with a more autumnal flair. Their colour is a great base to start with and their slight oversized fit called for another oversized piece, so I chose this navy sweater thats actually from the mens department in M&S it's quite old but it did the job. I also added a classic white shirt underneath, as I think a navy v-neck teamed with a white shirt is such a chic combination, that I never seem to tier of and I love nothing more then taking an edgier approach to a classic combo such as this. For my shoes I couldn't resist bringing out these old knee boots of mine that I bought from Topshop years ago, I remember I loved them so much that I bought them in a size to big, so now I always have to wear them with at least two pairs of socks. Ah but it's worth it!
I then added the gilet, it gives the look a whole different feel which is why I took photos of the outfit with and with out the gilet. It was just a little to chilly to wear the outfit with out a jacket and so that was that I gave into temptation and wore the amazing piece by 2nd Day. Wearing this created an undoubtable touch of 70's flair but with there still being a strong sense of minimal styling alongside such classic-chic pieces, made sure it was only an influence and not a running theme. Or at least that's how view it.
Well I hope you like this look. I am truly grateful for any comments I receive.
p.s sorry for the excessive amount of photos. It was just to hard narrowing it down this time, so I just went with it.
This is one of those outfits that was put together on whim, which is not normally how I work when it comes to creating outfits but luckily it ended up working and I was really quite happy with the result. See I had wanted to make sure I wore this amazing and very beautiful Karen Walker skirt this summer as I bought it back in the winter and also wore it then but the design to me comes across wearable for every season so I want to make sure I take full advantage of that, next will be styling it for autumn.
So for this outfit as you can see I just styled it with a very simple white tee as it was very very warm that day and other pieces needed to be kept to a minimal. I also wore my Camilla Skovgaard sandals (again) to pick up the edgy tones of this skirt, for instance the black leather panel. I also added in a brown leather belt and my/my mums neutral clutch as these colours complimented the more earthy tones of this skirt. To finish of I wore Topshop necklace, it just needed that touch or so I felt.
Anyway my lovelies I hope you like this look. Thank you and lots of love,
