Always a fan of scruffy glamourous!
I’ve always been a fan of head pieces. 70’s bands, bejeweled chains, anything that will subtly (or sometimes not so) add to what I’m wearing. Since the weather is beginning to feel somewhat summery/festivally I’m searching for inspiration, only this time I’m thinking the more embellished the better. Over-sized jewels are BIG this season so I’m on a mission to go full whack. Stay tuned for an outfit post. For now, this is what’s feeding my summer buzz.
I’ve had a black maxi skirt for a while now. For reasons unknown to me, it always gets shoved to the back of my wardrobe. It’s not very winter friendly unless you wear tights underneath which I’m not a fan of so it’s usually kept for milder climes. Like now. So today I fished it out and went a searching for some inspiration. I came to the conclusion that it works best with loose, folky tops/shirts. Boho if you like. Sequins also work. Top it off with a trilby and some biker boots and you’re ready to go. I paired mine with a loose, denim, studded River Island shirt, black ankle boots and a tweed trilby. The perfect amount of warmth. Here’s some inspiration I found online.
Both of these Zara sweaters. Loving the balloon effect of the tangerine alongside the quilted effect of the white.
Both of these trousers from River Island. I have boyfriend jeans which are literally mens vintage Levis. However, these ripped ones are a little more fitted and hang nice and low. The leather effect trousers I’ve been lusting after for quite a long time.
I know, I know MORE dungaree type things BUT one needs a pair for those warmer days in which I would pair them with….
…the Coltrane boot from Jeffrey Campbell. Serious craving for these bad boys.
That should do for now!
