Spring Sandals

Hayes-suede-sandal-from-J-Crew

I just love these J Crew sandals and recently bought myself the black pair. The open toe makes me feel like warmer weather is on its way, yet the fact that it has a backing and looks a little more polished then your average sandal or flip flop, allows you to wear these in some many ways, as well as on days when the sun might be out but there is still a little chill in the air.

Chloe Elle Bag

 

Chloe-Elle-Bag-in-black

I’ll admit it, I have a thing for bags – and by thing I mean I have a deep and abiding love for them! I have learnt over the last couple of years that bags and the odd gorgeous ballet flat, are the things in my wardrobe that I’m willing to invest money on. For this reason I’m really careful about the bags I buy and only pull the trigger when I know I can see myself still loving the bag for many years to come. I also make sure that any new bag I buy fills some sort of gap in my wardrobe, whether it be color, size, how and when I’ll wear it etc – so that my growing collection doesn’t all look or feel the same.

What I love about this Chloe bag is that although it is a classic black color, the shape is different enough to set it apart. I also love how it can be worn over the shoulder, as a cross body or as a clutch, with the front hand strap.

Fendi Peitit 2jours Bag

Fendi-Petit-2jours

The bag that I’m lusting after right now is the Fendi Petit 2jours. It’s the perfect size to carry around all day as it’s not too heavy and can fit so much in it considering it’s ‘petit’ size. This bag can be dressed up or down, can go from day to night and comes in so many colours that everyone can find one they’ll love! I also think that due to its perfect sizing and understated branding that this bag will be a timeless piece that will work with almost everything in your wardrobe.

Let the saving begin!

Chloe Scalloped Flats

Black-CHloe-flats

These Chloe flats have to be the most comfortable I’ve ever worn and considering I pretty much live in flats, that’s saying something! I can see now why they’ve become so insanely popular since they were first launched a few years ago, they’re just so comfy to wear and yet you still look put together when wearing them. They’re made from a buttery soft leather, come in lots of colors and the scalloped edges which is now synonymous with the brand add a subtle point of difference.

Addidas Gazelle Sneakers

Addidad-gazelle-style

I just got my first pair of Adidas Gazelle sneakers, I don’t know why I haven’t ever had a pair before because they are divine. Super comfy and they look awesome with some many things. Not just something that can be worn with activewear, these babies look great with skinny or boyfriend jeans, tailored or slightly draped pants and would work great to dress down a cute summer dress or skirt.

Valentine’s Day Picks

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and it made me realise just how fast this year is already going by! This day is sometimes hard to navigate, I don’t know whether I want to go all out and have dinner, drinks and get all dolled up or go super low key,order take out and where my jammies! I usually like to go somewhere in the middle, not too over the top, but do something a little special and different from any other night. Whatever it is we do, I try to have us disconnect from our electronic devices for the night (except for music) so that we can talk and relax. I love candles, so we could order take out but eat by candle light with some wine – then listen to some music – simple yet allows you to connect, which to me is what Valentine’s day is all about.

 

I’ve put together my V day picks that you’d no doubt love to receive any time of the year!

Beautiful Blush Dress

Topshop-crochet-trim-dress

While browsing through the Topshop website the other day (I call it internet window shopping) I fell in love with this blush dress. It’s the prefect feminine piece for the warmer months to come, but can be layered with a cardigan and tights for cooler nights as well. This dress could be so easily dressed up or down, with a cute pair of sandals and a clutch or booties and a crossbody. Plus the blush cloour could be paired with so many other colour combo’s that would make this dress so versatile and one that you could pull out for lots of occasions.
