Evening Sun

I was recently talking to a good friend about the idea of a summer "capsule wardrobe." It got me thinking about pieces that could be used for a variety of occasions throughout the sunny season as an alternative to buying a lot of different outfits only ever to be worn a few times before winter rolls around again. I love the versatility of a pair of loose fitted patterned trousers and its multiple styling options definitely makes it a suitable piece for a capsule wardrobe. They can be complimented with a loose fitted top, laired pendant necklaces and a straw fedora for a bohemian casual day look, a great comfortable option for sight seeing on your summer holiday. For a more evening appropriate look I would smarten them up with a chiffon tank and chic sandals. Either way these trousers are definitely a staple for me this summer and I can't wait to wear them for more sunny evenings like this one.

Fifties Pink

I have been obsessing over anything and everything fifties recently. Fifties furniture, fifties makeup, fifties clothes, so it was no wonder when I found this bubblegum pink midi skirt in Primark for £12 I got very excited. The skirt is made out of the increasingly popular "scuba," material which is a step up from a regular cotton skirt, and looks very similar to the Tibi midi skirts except about twenty times cheaper! I paired it with a striped top, some leopard sandals (another one of my Spring favourites), and a pair of pink cat-eye sunglasses.

Rainy Day Reading

In one of my recent posts I mentioned that I was in love with the book; "Kate Spade - Things We Love." The book is filled with inspirational and brightly coloured graphics and I love how there is a new surprise on every turn of the page. 

As it has been pretty miserable weather recently, I have been spending my days reading, painting and watching old classic disney movies in some cosy jeans and big wooly jumpers. On a rainy day I love to wear something a little more colourful or a bold patterned piece to brighten up the spirits and I love the feather print that covers these trousers.
