Today's look is completely inspired by very specific things. Normally, I will put a look together based on how I am feeling and pick a general theme, but today I styled this outfit purely based on 2 things. Also please ignore the "fashiony" way I am wearing my coat over my shoulders- you have to let me away with it sometimes!!
First, is my 2 favourite nail polishes of the moment, the Barry M High Shine Greenberry and Lychee. They are the perfect colours for spring and last night when I painted my nails I was just looking at them thinking I really want to wear a bright green colour tomorrow to match. So I was straight into my wardrobe looking for one of my hero's of last summer, my apple green Stradivarius skirt. ( If you have never been on their site you need too here) It is a great match to the nails and is such a nice pop of colour.
What do you think- too much?
The second inspiration for today was Louis Vuitton's SS13 collection. I literally loved all the black, white sixties checks and patterns that filled the catwalk show, and so felt my new Missguided chequered flag top would be a fitting tribute. I also loved the mix of it with the green skirt.
I very rarely get ready this way, as it would be too restrictive everyday, but I have really liked the overall effect.
Do you every design a look around one piece or item?
Well, it has been a really busy week so far, I feel super tired and it's only Tuesday! Hope you are having a good week?
And I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the lovely people who have nominated my blog in the Company Magazine Style Bloggers Awards, I am so touched and humbled. It means so much to me to get your comments and feedback, so to hear about that was so lovely, so THANK YOU! xxx
Hope you like the look and will be back with a new style video tomorrow.
