Another belated pre-London-holiday outfit post and it was an outfit that I quite liked. M and I went to do a spot of shopping before our vacation and we also went out to lunch to a burger joint (I had a vegetarian cheese burger but to be honest, I prefer veggie burgers if there are vegetable instead of cheese replacing the meat). I wore one of my favorite Melissa flats and the monochrome look with a pop of color really works for me.
Another belated pre-London vacation post, this time featuring a dress turned skirt DIY item. It was originally from Stradivarius, it is really old (bought like 7 years ago?) and since I turned it from a dress into a skirt shortly after purchasing it. I think I wore it as a dress only once as maxi dresses aren’t really my thing. While I like them on others, they very rarely feel like my style. (Currently in my dress collection I have two maxi dresses, both very old but I do occasionally wear them.) So I decided to turn it into a skirt and have worn it a few times, I prefer it like a skirt and am glad that I made the change (if I recall correctly, the dress was really hard to get into anyways).
I wore an old necklace, also from Stradivarius if I’m not mistaking. This look felt both relaxed with a slight boho vibe but at the same time with a slight edginess to it. I think the maxi skirt with the see-through fabric just does that on it’s own, the exposed yet covered juxtaposition.
A while ago M and I went to see the movie Spy (absolutely loved it!) and this is what I wore. I had my glasses on because there was a chance I would be driving and I based my whole look on my glasses.
Usually I’m all about the short skirts and mini-dresses (especially in combination with black opaque tights) but come the warm weather, I also gravitate towards comfortable carefree midi lengths. This skirt in particular is a favorite of mine, it’s from Topshop and I absolutely adore it (the gingham print, the style and cut, the material, it’s all good.)
Sometimes I wear an outfit that consists of favorite pieces and it makes that outfit really special. I have a lot of “favorites” but these are favorites in the truest sense. The shoes are from Melissa (definitely my favorite shoe brand ever) and they are the tangerine bow flats (I also have them in black and in yellow). I wear the black ones the most but I think these red ones are my favorite. Something about red shoes just makes me instantly happy.
A while ago I posted a “files of new” post about purchasing these shoes and here is an outfit I wore with them. The shoes in question are the “Buns’n’roses” oxfords from Iron Fist. I love these shoes, I think they are so cute! I went a bit kitsch while styling them.
Today I want to share with you two new pairs of shoes, the most recent additions to my shoe collection.
The first pair are these Reebok Skyscape Harmony slip-on trainers that are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. They may not be the most beautiful pair I have but they make up for it by being so good to my feet. M bought them for me in preparation for our July holiday (there is always so much walking on our holidays and my feet need all the help they can get. I am in between sizes and have a very high arch so finding comfortable walking shoes for me isn’t the easiest thing.) I’ve already worn them a couple of times and have one outfit post to show you in a future post.
The next pair is a lot more fun.
