I’m having a lot of fun with my summer wardrobe. All through winter, I looked forward to being able to plan an outfit that didn’t consist of a million layers and thermal underwear. I’ve been enjoying short sleeves, wispy fabrics and a distinct lack of unsexy undies.
– Pinstripe pants (thrifted)
– Platform shoes from Zu
– Amber earrings from my Nana
– Gold bracelet from my parents
– Gold heart ring from my parents.
– Wizard of Oz watch from Ross’s mum and dad.
I never realised until I typed my outfit description, but all of my jewellery in this post was gifted. I also realised that I never buy gold jewellery. It’s not that I don’t like gold, but I think that silver suits me better, so that’s what I choose for myself. It is nice to wear gold for a change though.
I liked the way that the pleats on my top mirror the stripes on my pants. I think that kind of helps to tie the look together, and make the two clashing prints work together better.
I adore the cutout detail of these platforms. It’s so unique and fun.
Is there something that you don’t really buy for yourself, but which people tend to always choose as gifts for you? I mentioned my gold jewellery, but I also have a massive collection of handbags, of which I only purchased two myself. Do you have anything like that?
