I think a heads-up should be given to you. I have got the most terrible habit that i can’t quit. My habit is stripes. Its a serious problem. All in want to do lately is put my Breton tops with everything, in any combination. Its possibly quite lazy, but the Parisian chic look (do they even wear stripes in Paris, or is that just an outmoded stereotype? im not sure..) is so easy to create and adds instant chic as soon as you don those stripes.
I’ve mentioned before that i like to make lists of potential outfits that i like to plan to wear. it helps me stay organised and know what i’ve got to work with. Well i can tell you out of 15 outfits 11 of them have stripes. Its a problem, i know.
Maybe i will exhaust them and get to the point where i can’t even stand another stripe. Who knows. Either way i’m just going to roll with it (apologies in advance for the stripe overload)
When i recently got this trench (bought with a rather welcome gift card!) in my mind it had to be worn with a simple Breton. I also thought at the time it would be perfect with loafers and boyfriend jeans for easy weekend wear. But after my faux leather skirt round-up, this little mini was just begging me to be paired with some stripes, so that’s what i did.
I also had the absolute pleasure of wearing this gorgeous DKNY bag from Harvey Nichols. The excitement when this delivery arrived was like christmas had come early. If we’re friends on Instagram(if we aren’t why not? we should be, lets be!) you will have seen the beautiful packaging it arrived in ( here, and again here)
There is something just so regal, so wonderful about Harvey Nichols.
And yes this little red bag is most definitely bag love.
It’s strap can be extended or doubled, meaning it can be worn across body or doubled up for shoulder wear. That is perfection right there folks. Sometimes a girl needs both hands and therefore across the body it goes. Other times i want to feel like a lady and i can pop in on my shoulder.
See, told you i loved it, do you blame me? 😉
