I really enjoyed mixing the different textures together of this outfit but in doing so kept all items within the same neutral colour scheme. I think that should be a general rule when you wear pieces that have a lot of detail. The item itself is already a distraction so why team it with opposing colours.
The white shirt added a modern polish to the overall look. Keeping it clean, simple & chic.
Being a fashion blogger, I’m constantly thinking about the next outfit I need to post & I’m constantly living outside of my wallet. But then there are times that I need to be frugal & rely on what is already in my large expansive wardrobe. These are what I call ‘make it work’ moments.
So, after staring in my wardrobe for quite some time I noticed a dress I picked up in Florence many moons ago by designer Patrizia Pepe. Its one of those items I loved initially but then fell at the back of my wardrobe. It was too casual for an event yet too dressy for every day use. Because of this I never made use of it…..until today.
My accessories were the light bulb moment which gave me the confidence to wear this dress. Without the fedora, the camera case or the boots the whole look would fall flat. I was aiming for an updated going on safari look (without looking like I was going on safari). Goes to show that a few well chosen accessories can help breathe life into items never worn and make it feel current.
So for this week at least I saved a little dough.
