This set was pretty much inspired by the amazing weather we’ve been having in London these past two weeks. It’s odd how sunny and dry it’s been, really odd. As I write this, sunlight is filtering in through my blinds and caressing my skin, what a tease tsk. Now although the suns out and everything seems merry, the mornings are still quite chilly so the set that I put together today was more or less what I had originally wanted to wear myself until I felt how cold it really was outside. I bought the lovely khaki coloured cropped jacket yesterday and sought to wear it with a lacey monochrome crop top and maxi skirt. The crop top I included in the set is gorgeous with slight ribbed detail and would have been in my clutches if the Zara store I visited yesterday had had it in stock. Sigh.
I chose a maxi skirt with sheer polka dot detail to give this outfit a bit of Va Va Voom~ and the white Nike sneakers are a definite must have for this summer. They go perfectly with almost every kind of ensemble – I’ve even seen a few people wear them with party style dresses (not for me but they carried it off well enough!). I feel like almost every single person in this city has a pair of Ray bans – their sales margin must peak during Summer! And why not? They make great sunglasses after all.
A recurring pattern in previous posts must have highlighted my adoration for all necklaces that are of a choker design so adding the Cameo choker was foreseeable at the least. I kept the accessories minimal because this outfit really is one you chill in; to meet up with a few friends, walk around a park with them and just soak up the bountiful suns rays, all whilst listening to some Lana Del Rey<3 The headband was intrinsic to this look as I envisioned an up do to go with the vibe I was creating with this set. A bit sporty, a bit chic and a hell lot of cool. (I suddenly feel like the Fonz)
Hopefully we haven’t used up all our sunny day coupons this month and the good weather stays for as long as it possibly can!
Have a good week guys!

Lace Bralets, embellished short shorts, chunky block heels and minimal bling.

My inspiration for this set was the thought of a group of femme fatale’s who used their feminine wiles and sly disposition to get whatever they wanted in whichever way they pleased. I may have had a slight Wild West setting to the thought as well which is partly why I added the bandana’s. The chunky gold jewellery was added because I wanted the outfit to even out in terms of perhaps being too feminine. That as well as the chunky heeled boots  I picked out because of their versatile and comfortable nature adds a strong edge which could be provoked by the link to popular rap culture. Therefore it almost gives a ‘thug-like’ feel to the complete look.

Is it too odd that this would definitely be my desired outfit if ever I were to rob a bank?
