My Milkshake

new look milkshake clutch bag, red winter coat, zara grey hatSometimes, even when I LOVE something, it takes me ages to wear it for the first time. Usually, that’s due to the weather, like if I buy a summer mini dress in the middle of winter. Sometimes, I find myself simply waiting for the perfect outfit for a particular item. That was the case of this cute clutch bag from New Look:

new look milkshake clutch bagI fell in love with the milkshake clutch as soon as it appeared on the New Look website and bought it asap (which was a bit of a shame as it later was in the sale), but it has taken me forever to wear it! First I didn’t have any occasion to wear it to and then it got to being winter and I thought it would suit a spring/summer look more. Finally, I decided enough waiting and just went for it.

Camaieu 60’s-esque red winter coat – bought in 2011 or 2010. I love this coat, although in all honesty it could be a little bit warmer. But still, the shape and color are perfection and I love wearing it.

Zara knitted hat,  bought around the same time, probably even earlier. I have three of these hats, this grey one and then a black one and a red one. I love them all, they are my favorite hats and I wish I had more. They have the perfect shape for my huge head. 🙂

Zara black and white lace-less brogues. Bought in 2011. I took the laces out myself as I think they look better without. I haven’t worn them that much but that’s mainly due to the fact that they are prone to make blisters, ouch.

Pop Boutique sleeveless swing dress in stripe bought in 2015.

I really love it and I knew once it arrived that I wanted to wear it with the milkshake clutch for a slightly retro feel.

*I’m not sure when the next post will be up as I have an essay due today and an exam this Wednesday, so you’ll have to bear with me but fingers crossed, I might  manage 🙂 Wish me luck, xox.
