I recall seeing it in store yonks ago but it wasn’t until the lovely Lily mentioned that it was on sale that I remembered how much I loved it. Yes it’s kitsch, yes it’s not entirely practical, but it’s sooo pretty! I had to wait what felt like eons for this beauty to arrive in the post (that’s what you get for purchasing from a non-US website) but it was worth the wait and, once again, Lily and I are now outfit twins :)
I figured simplicity was the best approach with regards to the rest of this outfit, but I couldn’t resist adding a little more metallic fun to the party with these silver brogues from Office. Every time I wear these shoes they put a smile on my face, and I predict the same happy-effect future for this bag. Items like these might not be to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s so important to wear things you really love and find enjoyment in wearing.
Do you have a item (or three) in your wardrobe that makes you giddy with glee?
Polka dot cream shirt – Old Navy / Camel chinos – H&M / Silver brogues (old) – Office / Gold camera bag – Accessorize / Red acrylic sunglasses – a pound shop (!)
