(I'm using Rafflecopter to host the competition, the details of which are at the bottom of the post, but in summary, this is an app that will pick a winner at random on the designated date. I will then email the lucky winner to get the postal address and send the shoes on their merry way).
So back to this outfit...
As I said in the aforementioned post, statement sleeves are a huge trend this year. Take this top for example. Without the sleeve in the reverse stripe, it would be just another breton top. I have countless and they form part of my staple wardrobe, especially throughout spring. A well-cut, well-fitting striped top can take one to any number of occasions and I really can't fault them, but sometimes, a simple classic needs a little reworking to make it fresh and to let it hold its own; take a leading role rather than a supporting one. A breton will of course be forever associated with Coco Chanel and with the French sailors who first sported them so it seemed appropriate to team this top with my wide-legged sailor-inspired trousers from last season. I'm pleased to report that similar trousers will be very prevalent throughout AW'17 so I'm expecting to wear these over and over.
The grey pendant is one of the new additions to my online accessories boutique, Lizzy O and when researching jewellery trends for the new lines, natural stone, (like agate or mineral stone) was seen over and over again. This long tassled geometric pendant (£15) has a nod to that and I like the clean lines it affords.
And how gorgeous is the combination of grey leather and rose-gold in my new watch from The Camden Watch Company?
So here in close-up are the shoes. As you can see, they're a striking hounds-tooth pattern, (leather), with patent leather heels and toes and a functional side zip. They are incredibly comfortable and well-made and are real head-turners. I can think of numerous ways of styling them including with skinny jeans or trousers, a tunic dress, a skater dress, a mid skirt and perhaps even a mini. They're very, very versatile. And I like that a lot.
