I like black a lot. I like khaki a lot too and am usually to be found dressed in one or the other. Sometimes though, we all need a bit of colour in our lives.
Today I am wearing very colourful Zara culottes.
Zara culottes, old Cos tshirt, ASOS sandals (really comfy and in their sale for just over a tenner)
The culottes have an elasticated waist and pockets, win win. Zara are are smashing it when it comes to floral trousers! Err, can I just say, OMG! Maybe swerve these.
Back to colour. I love yellow – particularly the bright buttercup shade – but have never worn much of it.This shirt is from & Other Stories. It has been on my radar for a few months and I hoped it would go in their sale so I waited to buy it. Alas it hasn’t.
Here with old H&M denim shorts (similar here, I’d say to size up twice) and Topshop sandals. Sadly the shirt is too small (this is a 40) so I need to return and reorder.
I have just ordered this dress too. I really like this style of dress, the neck makes it reasonably flattering on a larger chest and the looser fit hides a multitude of crisp related sins. This Warehouse dress I mentioned yesterday is a similar fit and also on the way to me. It also comes in yellow which I couldn’t see on the Warehouse site.
This shirt is from Stories too.
Box fresh and badly modelled but it’s a good shirt. Again with H&M shorts and Topshop sandals.
I am a bit in love with these white strappy sandals. The heel is tiny but they feel a bit dressier than flat sandals and are very comfortable to wear. They sold out really quickly but this Nashville pair are reasonably similar albeit with a higher heel. This Zara pair are higher too but have a decent leg wrap and are leather. These are black but could serve the same purpose as my white ones – a sandal with a bit of oomph and a bit of leg-flattering height. The black version of my white ones are still available in a few sizes if you don’t fancy white….
I tried this flat white pair in store the other day and really liked them (similar to this popular Stories pair) Sadly my size is sold out but I am going to give the pink a shot. When I look for white sandals, I like the bottom to be black. A few years ago I bought a pair of Birkenstock with a white bottom (like these) and the London streets made them grubby within days.
In other shoe news, I am interested in these.
I had been browsing clogs after I gave my neutral Swedish Hasbeens (I had these) and tan Lotta clogs away a few years ago (silly me) but these looked good in the shop and might be better for my klutzy feet than clogs (I sustained regular mild damage to my ankle bones before I gave mine away) I like the heel height and they felt sturdy. I can’t get these out of my mind either. Do I need them? Well, no. Do they somehow make me think of the heeled slippers the women on Dynasty wore that I used to obsess over and was desperate to have as a child? Well, yes.
I ordered this black and gold headband from Stories too. I might just be wearing it with shorts and this gold fringed cardigan to dance my socks off the Beyoncé and Mr Beyoncé 😉 on Friday.
Right, I have a food shop to do and washing to hang out. All the glamour. Back soon.
