OOTD: Channeling Alexa Chung

Sweater* – Oasap | Skirt – Topshop | Necklace – Tatty Devine | Watch* – French Connection

Ok so I could never be as effortlessly stylish as Alexa, but I can try, right? Thankfully this sweater from Oasap has allowed me to at least imitate her style. The sweater is super comfy and really warm – I wore it to work without a coat and felt quite cozy. I paired it with my favourite skate skirt from Topshop and my tiger Tatty Devine necklace. It’s not exactly an outfit that’s going to walk down the catwalk anytime soon, but I like it.

OOTD: “These are hard times for dreamers”

Yes, this dress is called the ‘Amélie Dress’. Surely there is nothing more suited to me than this? For those of you who don’t know/haven’t guessed I am a massive fan of Amélie. Not only am I a fan of the movie but I adored Audrey Tautou’s character’s wardrobe. Whereas this may not be related I think this dress is definitely something you’d see in the movie. I spotted this straight away when I was viewing Boden’s dress collection, and it was love. I knew that this would make a great Autumn/Winter dress, so I definitely had to have it. The pattern and cut are very flattering, even so I added a belt to break up the stripes. This comes in 3 colours but I thought this one was best suited to my style. Although I am now wishing I had the monochrome one too!

OOTD: Sky Blue

Wow, would you believe it, an outside outfit shot! I haven’t done one of these for a while, purely because I got too attached to my white wall. Anyway I think it makes a nice change and I wanted to match my sweater to the glorious sky. A little bit of sunshine can’t do any harm, right?
I know it isn’t Autumn yet but this sweater is pretty light. I think it will be worn quite a bit as the weather starts to change. I love the gradient on the sweater, but boy was it hard to choose which colour. It was almost impossible to choose between this royal blue one, the lilac and pastel green. I think I may just have to order the other two…or would that be overindulging? Probably. Still, this one pairs well with light and dark colours so I think I choose well.

OOTD: Go heavy on the accessories

Lately I’ve been dressing a lot simpler, more casual. I wonder if it has anything to do with what’s going on in my life right now? I’m going through a difficult uncontrollable situation, so I’m simplifying the stuff I have control of? Even so, just because I’ve been dressing simpler doesn’t been I haven’t been putting effort into my look. Anyway, let’s not get too philosophical and ruin the feeling of this post, just a little food for thought.
Yesterday the fiancé & I headed out to brunch – a new weekend routine. I went for a monochrome polka dot-inspired look, to keep it casual but fun. I loaded on the accessories though, they’ve been my saviour lately, helping me dress up a simple outfit. My new watch is from French Connection. It’s all gold & silver (& sparkles) so I wanted things to flow with it. That meant lots of silver rings (I don’t seem to own many gold ones) and a gold bracelet & necklace. I think it suited what I was going for and it made me feel good, and that’s what matters, right?
What did I have for brunch? A Spanish chorizo & cambozola cheese omelette – delicious!
