Retro Child

Lately I’m really diggin’ berets, and I’m predicting they will be big for AW16 – even if they aren’t I’ll be rocking them! I picked up this striped t-shirt from Oasis with some Christmas money I had left over, I love the 70’s vibe it has. I used it’s 70’s influence to inspire this look, starting by adding the denim button down skirt, next came the camel coat and to mix thing up a little, I added tan accessories. There was a time when all I wore was tan shoes and accessories. I still love a good tan pair of brogues but as my style has evolved I’ve moved on to owning the largest collection of black shoes and ankle boots possible, it’s funny how our style changes as we get older. I enjoyed dusting off the tan accessories and feel they worked well with the retro look I was going for, and adding my red beret was the finishing point.

    Love the 70s vibe. I’m also getting a bit of Bonnie Parker a la Faye Dunaway. You photos are always great. I really like your aesthetic.

    Cute! I love the close-ups of the watch. Those two shots are my favorite. Great photography!

    Berets are awesome! Now I need to add an amazing red one to my collection too. I agree with you how funny it is that one’s style changes over the years. I tend to go through phases too – a lot of tans and browns for coats/jackets/shoes/handbags, but lately I’m finding that I don’t have enough black staples. Time for a wardrobe refresh!

    Love the french vibes! I often find that one accessory can inspire a whole look – and your colour co-ordination is on point!

      I totally agree with you and often get inspired by an accessory and build the outfit around it. Sometimes you can’t beat a bit of colour coordinated ☺️ x
