It’s been a very emotional week and my grandma’s funeral on Thursday, quite understandably took its toll and I was quite tearful for much of Friday. I had a long-standing arrangement to meet girlfriends for drinks in town on Friday night and I debated whether or not I should go, particularly because I didn’t sleep too well on Thursday night. However, the company of fabulous friends and the promise the of a few cocktails and a lot of laughter proved to be irresistible and we did, as always have a brilliant night.
Unusually for me, I was undecided about what to wear until the last minute, although I was certain about the shoes, which arrived from Kaleidoscope in time the AW16 preview which I’ll be attending in London on Tuesday. You may recall that I have the same colourblock heels in red, white and blue and I love them that much that I ordered them in a more neutral nude and black combination.
The top is one which I have had for several years and always enjoy wearing. The cream and grey beading worked nicely with the tones in the shoes. I’ve always loved clothing inspired by the Great Gatsby and the 1920s and the scalloped edge and tassels give more than a nod to that most elegant of eras. The boyfriend jeans, (I hope), made it all look a little more relaxed, and, (I hope even more), cooler than if I’d teamed them with a smarter trouser or jean.
Since ordering this Danon freshwater pearl and heart bracelet from my website Lizzy O, I have worn it over and over and with so many different outfits. There is a matching necklace too and both are available with a silver heart.
