Before Paris fashion week the boyfriend and I went to have a family meal in celebration for his and his fathers Birthday (they are only a day or so apart). The boyfriend thought that near the pub there might be a nice area to take some photos but it ended up just basically being country roads! So we parked up and made the most out of what we had. Weather wise, the sun was shining and at times it was even warm enough to take the faux fur off. Hopefully this means Spring may just arrive on time this year!
I hope you are all looking forward to your weekend, after the week i've had, I am certainly ready to try and have a relaxing one.
So, this is what I wore to the Issay Miyake show. Dabbling in winter whites and neutral favourites, whilst adding some native touches with my accessories and finished off with an extra splash of texture with this faux fur cape which I scored on sale in Topshop back along.
I hope you like it lovelies,
Ganni Coat - similar Here & another great style Here
I have no idea how I actually managed to put a post together with photos of this outfit, I didn't think it was going to be achievable on the day, it was mad windy but i'm glad I persisted, as I really liked this outfit.
I've always been more inclined to go oversized then fitted and todays outfit is certainly no exception! Big coat, baggy leather trousers and a loose polka dot print dress did it for me but with keeping it mainly tonal apart from the coat helped in keeping it all relatively streamline. The bag is actually a clutch (you might of seen it before?) and it has these suede tassel things that you wrap around the clutch, so I undid them tied a knot in the top and wore it across my body. Cant say it felt completely secure but it held up and I guess thats what counts!
Teaming this beige cable-knit sweater with some cream wider leg trousers had been on my mind ever since Autumn hit. I'm a hug fan of winter whites/winter neutrals but instead of going the whole hog this time,I thought it would look quite chic to add some navy with my peacoat and a touch of burgundy with my brogues. And seeing as the weather was fairly mild enough that day, I decided to swap a scarf for a choker necklace instead, well not an actual choker necklace but a belt will do. It added an earthy appeal to some timeless classics and topped of with my navajo print clutch, which really popped against the dark navy colour of my coat.
It's Friday already! And here is a look for you all.
I wanted to wear this gorgeous Vionnet top again and with it's gorgeous eye catching scarf print I couldn't resist mixing it up with another print this time around. So I teamed it with one of favourite pieces, this Elizabeth & James silk, striped shirt. It didn't look right with the sleeves down, for some reason it seemed to throw all the proportions off balance, so rolled them up, which actually gave the look a more effortless and casual feel.
I then went with these Carven navy wide leg trousers, another wardrobe favourite of mine. Their length along with their shape is just soooo chic in my opinion and I really liked the way they picked up the blue in my shirt. For my shoes I went with these very old Pretty ballerina's that I came across the other day, their bronzed colour just seemed to work really well and I liked how they gave a sense of unexpectedness. I don't why but when I look at this outfit I think of an old fashioned bar man, like in the western films, hehe. I really enjoyed wearing this, it was one of those outfits that I felt very confident in, which was nice because it was around a time when I was struggling to get inspired.
Finishing touches included this Totem Salvaged clutch, my double skull Mqueen ring and the boyfriend's watch, cheeky I know but what are boyfriends for if you can't steal from their wardrobe every now and again!
Well I look forward to hearing what you think. Thank you to those who take the time to comment and I even thank the ones who just take the time to have a lil look.
Take care and have an awesome friday,
