My boyfriend is so lucky; after a long hard week at work, he gets to spend part of his weekend standing in the street taking photos of my outfit! While I take my own photos of everything else on this blog, the one thing I struggle with (for obvious reasons) is outfit posts. Why do I do it? Because I love showing my clothes and accessories to the internet!
I always see girls in East London wearing clogs and looking cool in them. It doesn’t matter if they are worn with jeans or dresses, tights or bare legs, clogs look cool! Hopefully this Summer I will be wearing these clogs with bare legs, but until then, I will have to wear them with tights!
My clogs are by Lotta of Stockholm, they are super comfortable and a great fit. They come is so many amazing colours, but after spending a long time deciding between them all, I thought I would stick to black as they are go with everything. Not only are they really well made, but they are also really affordable. All Lotta from Stockholm clogs are made in Sweden and if you want a real bargain, there is a ‘sale ‘n’ seconds‘ area on their website, they have some real stunners from £20 and you would barely notice a flaw in them!
When I wear a big, soft over-sized jumper, I tend to pile on a little extra jewellery to compensate for how casual my outfit is. It just seems to make a Sunday outfit a little dressier. My ring is by JM by Julien Macdonald at QVC, my watch is by Les Partisanes at Twisted Time. My bracelet is by Trollbeads, it is Sterling silver as it has a cute dice and a pearl bead on. The fun thing about Trollbeads, is you choose your bracelet, of which there are loads of options, You can pick leather or Sterling Silver, and there are loads of different clasps to choose from too. I opted for the Sterling Silver bracelet with a simple clasp, as I felt like it was just classic and I could wear it forever. There are loads of different charms to choose from also. You can mix and match the stones and designs, and create your own unique bracelet. I spent ages look at charms of cute fish, cats and semi precious stones, but in the end I went for the pearl and the dice. I liked the dice because I thought it was so cute and so simple. There is something so nice about the square shape with rounded edges, it’s also a really fun motif. As for the pearl, I picked that because I love pearls, they are just so chic! Which would you choose?
I’m so happy that backpacks are on-trend, as I love having my hands free of carrying a handbag. Today’s backpack is by Boden and it is silver metallic leather. I love the top handle strap and the giant tassels. It’s really practical and I think it looks really cool! Every season Boden‘s collections are getting better and better, their new SS15 collection is well worth checking out!
Pugs and Macaroons
I love shopping on Etsy (I’m constantly making wish lists) and my latest find is this amazing scary by Sissy Your Best Friend. It is made of silk satin and it has pugs, macaroons, rose and ropes all over! I love it! I tried to take a photo of the full print, but it was so windy it just kept blowing in the wind. I will take them next time!
