Yesterday was another State holiday (I really love the month of May) and M and I decided to go on a little walk to discover the area where we live. We’ve lived here nearly three quarters of a year and haven’t been exploring much. We have gone on walks but usually with Dracul and he doesn’t really like to go that far. He’s a lazy pig. Well yesterday I had already walked Dracul beforehand so we were able to go on a walk without him. I was pleased with the idea of going out because I really wanted to wear these shoes:
Mel for Melissa “Blueberry” bow flats in white
I also own these shoes in black but I prefer the white version, they have a more retro feel to them and although I’m not usually an advocate of white shoes, I think these are adorable. I bought them via Asos and they’re still available in a UK size 7. Anyways, this was the first time I wore my white pair and what can I say? I love them.
Now let’s also take a moment and talk about this bag. How perfect is this bag, right? It’s from Ollie & Nic and if you want it too, you’re in luck, because it’s currently on sale. I love this bag – the vibrant color, the quirky shape, and the fact that it is a basket weave is like icing on the cake. From the first second that I saw it on a blog, I knew that I wanted it. It definitely has a retro feel to it and I thought it worked well with the entire outfit.
I wore a black jersey dress with 3/4 sleeves (H&M), white earrings, a fun apple shaped ring* (H&M) and a retro style leopard print coat (H&M) that’s a bit of a favorite. I usually wear it paired with black like I did yesterday or like in the photo below (July 2011).
But I also think the coat works equally well with jeans (March 2011):
Or with bright colors (September 2013):
So as you can see, this coat is really a favorite (anything that I have more than one outfit photo in is a favorite haha). *I also want to mention the ring I wore, because it’s super cute but also because it completely matches my bag.
I’m really happy with how the photos from yesterday turned out (and I’d like to add that all of them were taken with my iphone) and I really liked my outfit, I can only wish for more days like yesterday. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
