New and Unique Accessories
I think my first love with everything style related began with accessories as I had an uniform for 12 years of my school life and little dainty touches was where I had the flexibility to add some interest into my outfits everyday. And to this day, my ‘style uniform’ still exists in a way where the Winter sees me in high waisted denim and a cashmere sweater more often than not. In the summer, I live in the white tee and midi skirt combo. So accessories is often how I decide to play up my outfits.
Here are some of my loves and keep reading to score yourself a voucher to get a discount on one of the items.
1. The very trendy straw bag
This is maybe one of the main trends in the last couple of years that I’ve embraced with open arms. I love that a straw bag can be so easy to use on holiday and instantly make any simple look very very chic. I first fell in love with them in the South of France in Avignon where a whole market sold straw bags! It was heavenly to say the least. I had one from South Beach (as pictured) which I wore for a very long time before the bottom eventually fell off. But I have to say it was worth every penny given the amount of love it received. Just last week, I picked up the Nanacay mini bag (see here) as it was the cutest little thing. For a summer holiday, it’s a dream!
2.Any dainty gold rings/necklaces
There is something so aesthetically pleasing about dainty little gold rings and necklaces. And I think a lot of this inspiration comes from Mejuri who do dainty jewellery so well (not sponsored/sent products). I just love the brand and have lusted over just about everything they sell. Layering here is key for me.
3. My forever love, the bright and bold mini bag
One of the oldest items in my wardrobe is my yellow structured crossbody featured in the picture. It was a gift from my brother and it really sparked one of my key style staples. My ideal kind of outfit is a simple one with a fun and bright bag. Here are some fo my favourites here.
4. Statement Gold Hoops
Another Instagram trend that I’ve fully embraced. While I like dainty rings and necklaces, I LOVE a statement earring. My latest pair have been on the more subtle side from Reliquia but I also love Les Nereides for jewellery as well as ASOS.
5. A fun watch to smarten up your casual outfits
A watch is always a great item to have as it really smartens up any look! There is something so classic and timeless about a watch that I think is beautiful in any outfit. And its no surprise its a staple in my collection. Recently, JORD Wood Watches * contacted me offering to send me a watch to try and having seen their beautiful wood style watches on Instagram, I was incredibly excited to jump on the opportunity. I went for the Cassia in Ebony & Sable which offers a incredibly sleek, dark wooden strap and a very minimal and clean watch face.
These timepieces are made in Missouri and so far, I’m incredibly happy with the style and quality. The strap feels light but durable and the watch face is very minimal, just the way I like it.
