It might be looking a little gloomy outside (torrential rain has that effect) but that shouldn’t stop anyone from donning a pop of colour in the shape of a pretty beret! And the second I spotted this high neck top from Topshop I had clicked ‘Add To Bag’ without a second’s debate! It goes with so much that I own; from high-waisted black jeans to skater skirts and pinafores– a pretty cheap versatile buy! Teamed with my favourite print, and a Bird On A Wire beret, I was quite pleased with this combination! My new mittens from I Love Lowie have also helped me brave the cold! And knowing that they do their utmost to source materials ethically and of the highest standard, for both the customer and the manufacturers makes wearing their mittens an even warmer experience (cheesy but true).
All that was missing was a touch of old glamour in an accessory (my over-used H&M heart bag is actually losing its heart shape…). But having heard about a new online jewellery shop dedicated to pearls called Mesenso, (launching later this month!), I think I might be able to channel my inner flapper girl alongside my ’60s wannabe too! Being able to mix inspiration from decades of fashion and across countries is what I love most about putting outfits together! x
