A Few of My Favourite Things: Accessories I’m Using Most at the Moment.

Whiskers on kittens don’t rate high on my list. I’m bit more materialistic than that, me likes a bit of bling. You often hear of fashion items being referred to as investments, much to the annoyance of most men, particularly those who work in a finance related role. The thing with accessories is that when I first buy something I like to wear it loads, then I get tired of it or get something new and it gets put away for a while. But then I buy a new dress or top that it would be perfect with and it gets taken out again for while. You can keep going back to accessories time and time again, so if you divide the initial purchase price by the number of times you wear it, cost per wear is tiny, so it is an investment. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Here are a few of the items that I’m reaching for the most at the moment:

First up is bags

Both Micheal Kors, The black bag is my current everyday bag and the green one is a clutch that I use for nights out.

Guess Clutch: A black clutch is something that will get lots of use.

I can never understand how anyone would buy a beautiful bag and then chuck it on a dirty floor. This little handbag hook comes everywhere with me.

L-r Awear, Pennys/Primark, and the last one is from a stall in Portugal

Watch this space because with the changing seasons, my most used accessories are bound to be changing soon. What is getting your love at the moment, do you like to switch it up regularly?

Friday Style: The Cutsie Dress

Ah the cutsie little summer dress. You see it on the hanger and you think “summer is a long way away, it’ll be ages before I get to wear you”. Think again, I’ve been wearing ditsy little summer dresses all winter long.

Dress & Cardigan are both from Pennys/Primark

You layer a cosey cardigan over the dress, add some opague tights and chunky boots and you have a great winter style. If it’s really cold you can even pop a long sleeve t-shirt under the dress and cardy. The chunky boots are the perfect way to tone down the girly look of a pretty sun dress and give the look a bit of edge. A bomber or biker jacket would be another way to toughen up the look. You could also wear a belt out over the cardigan and dress to give your waist  a nipped in shape.

You can have a lot of fun and get loads of wear out of a cutsie sun dress with a ditsy print. In Spring and Autumn you can swap the cardigan and chunky boots for a blazer and ballet pumps. If WHEN (positive thoughts) summer comes along, just wear the dress alone with some cute sandals.

Loving the bow detail of the neckline.

I like to wear this dragonfly print with a mint green cardigan that I already had in my wardrobe. However, it could be matched to any of the other colours in the vibrant print, such as wine, blue, or emerald green (supposedly the colour of the season, but hardly anything in the shops to support this so far– mini rant).

These boots are Marco Tozi and you may get used to seeing them because I have been wearing them alot since I got them early last Autumn. In my opinion, they go with everyting.

Anyone else rocking their summer dresses in Winter? How do you like to style yours?
