For this outfit which I’m really happy to share with you, I donned a multi-coloured floral lace top with shades of blue and turquoise, with indigo jeans and a structured black blazer with ruched shoulders. If you've been following my blog for a while, you may recall the floral lace top from an earlier post, where it was styled to create an edgy, Oriental-inspired look (Orient Express (Part 1) - Summer Solstice). That was one of my all-time favourite looks, so do check it out if you can! For this outfit, my inspiration was 'strictly business (with a little play)'. I completed the look by adding an oversized butterfly brooch encrusted with blue crystals, and gypsy-style chandelier earrings with similar blue tones.
So far July has been a really eventful month, with both setbacks to overcome, and some positive developments as well. A recent highlight for me was meeting up with my former school classmates one evening, for a long-awaited class reunion. Our reunion took place on a Saturday night at a Chinese restaurant near to my old school! There were six of us in total, some of whom I hadn’t seen in many years! It felt natural and easy to talk to everyone and it felt like I’d been transported back in time, to my awkward teenage phase, which lasted at least seven years, so technically counts as an era rather than a phase, or possibly even an epoque! The next day, I visited a new friend at her home and we had a nice refined teatime, complete with tasty snacks and genteel gossip! It was so refreshing to be a social butterfly for the weekend, and connect with old and new friends. It’s something I don’t get to do very often, but with my newfound positivity, I’m hopeful that will change soon.
Now back to the fashion! Well I wore this ensemble in the spirit of being fabulous, even though it was purely for the purpose of taking outfit photos, rather than going somewhere in particular. The pieces I’m wearing are from past seasons, but I’ve included links at the end of this post for recreating a similar look! I hope you like it! Let me know in the comments below! x
