Another way to wear stripes. Here with an iconic design bag from the Kenzo label. Jacket as before, pants as before, striped sweater, similar here and here and a cheaper version that I like here and another here
The bag is the star of this look, exact here ,perfect for a groomed appearance carried under the arm, or a little more rock and roll with an added chain strap from another bag and worn cross body. I’ll wear this clutch with a guitar strap as well for a different spin.
….and here’s the tail view ;D All in all a perfect conversation stopper!!!
This is such an easy peasy style to put together and to wear, equally good in white with navy. The only item in this ensemble that is relatively new is the linen blazer, similar here and here and here I’m wearing with ancient black linen drawstring pants ;O cost per wear YAY!!! Similar here and here and here
I borrowed the hat off Mr F ;o similar here and here and the tee is an old one from Zadig, similar here and here and more affordable here
My sneakers or in Brit speak plimsoles are here and a similar pair here if you prefer a more up market brand. I’m wearing all my usual fav accessories to finish off.
Thats it for now my friends. Enjoy your weekends. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah X
So what’s a girl to do when she gets an invite to rock some of her favorite items in Zadig ….ENJOY!!! Here I’m in the softest of cashmere sweaters, cosy, comfy and super stylish, what could be better? here with my own pink jeans here and Chloe boots here and Zadig’s iconic Rock clutch in snake print here
AS you can see from the pics we did have a great session and I have to admit that my Lust List is growing at an alarming pace :O ….but the sales are coming up soon ;D
Here I’ve styled the bag to wear crossbody…handbag as jewelery!
Above…and this is why I’m still in love with Chloe Susanna boots ;D
The Art is Truth tee has already found its way into my wardrobe…Hmm! Well we all need a new white tee every now and then don’t we? here
More of this story another day…there were many more than one new pieces that we LOVED! :p That’s it for now my friends, as always many thanks for dropping by. Sarah X
This is such a classic look to ease into summer. The pants are light weight and fluid, these are from last year, these are similar by Zadig current season here and I like this pair too here With a classic white tee, exact here or a looser style here would look and feel cool.
The canvas sneakers, or what we Brits call Plimsoles, are supremely comfortable and look perfect with this laid back look here I buy 2 or 3 pairs of these from H&M every summer.
The scarf is also a season or two old but the skull pattern is reprised every season exact, though not sure if its still in stock, here or here and this year here in gorgeous green!
I’ve paired my box bag with a guitar strap and left the regular handle to hang down. This styling adds interest to the look, aswell as helping to elongate the silhoette! Bag here and strap here mines an old one, of course ;O, but I love this season’s rendition with the Girls Can Do Anything slogan here
That’s it for now folks. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah x
I love to layer up for style and practicality. None of these pieces are new so I’m just giving ideas of how to style this look using similar pieces. My style philosophy, which I learnt from my mother, was to choose a few good quality items and mix and match them to get multiple different looks.
The longer length cardi is from my fav Zadig & Voltaire and I bought it at the end of last summer season on sale :0….Result! I like this style as it slims the hips and covers the bum if you like it that way. Similar here and here Styled with a camisole the cardi transitions into summer and covers up in the morning and evening when there is still a chill in the air. This camisole is a Liberty of London print produced in a limited edition for Uniclo, therfor cheap as chips! Sadly no longer available but I love this one here or for a warmer palette this one here
Love my skinny jeans as you may have realised by now! Look out for lighter weight cotton mixes for summer wear. These are old ones from Hudson Jeans – I wish they still produced them with back pockets as they are very flattering for a boyish figure like mine. Some alternatives that I like are here or my favorite pink ones here
I like to wear my boots for as much of the year as possible so the plethora of white ones that are available this year are a great bonus for the summer vibe that they add. Mine are from Chloe so an investment piece, but if I ever tire of them they will sell on consignment for not much less than I paid for them and never, never will they go for landfill :O!!! here and here I like this neutral color pair, similar style here but much more reasonable ;p and also this style here and these boot style sandals look pretty cool too here My bag is also from my favorite major design brand here and here but these saddle bags would look good with the outfit too here and here and here
To complete the look I pile on a collection of silver jewelry with a few turquise accents, perfect for a summer boho vibe.
Thats it for now folks. Thank you for stopping by, Sarah X
White feels light and summery but with a duster and boots it is proof against a chill breeze. here I’m rockin transitional layers [for much longer than normal here in southern Spain]. A white blouse will see you right through the summer season, here and here with white light-weight cotton jeans here and here and here . I’ve added another layer with a light duster here and here and I’ve donned my trusty Susanna boots again [love these boots ;D] here and here
I’m wearing my normal silver and turquoise hardware which has earned its place in my wardrobe time after time…here and here and here and here and a watch bought years ago from Fendi and worn practically every day since…ie in terms of Cost per Wear = absolutely FREE ;O!!! here PS when I bought mine it cost less than $200 which is what I call an investment; sadly though Mr F does not agree with me whole heartedly ;(
My ring was bought when we were on holiday in Paris around 12 years ago and can similarly be regarded ;D similar here and here and here The bracelet with the pink stones is pretty antique too, similar here
My philosophy is to know your own taste, and to buy things to keep and treasure. I renew my wardrobe each season with a few new pieces but mostly recycle my outfits to create different looks.
Once again many thanks for stopping by. I soo appreciate your loyalty and the lovely comments that you sometimes leave. Bye for now, Sarah X
Above I’m pretty casual in distressed denim and tee, but undoubtedly the look is elevated by the color palette. My [very old] black tank, similar here and here and white wrap cardi, similar here is a classic combo that I wear over and over with black or white jeans, similar here or if you like a more classic look try these here or here
Of course it is the chunky jewlery that takes the look into the next level, as you probably realize by now I’ve been collecting striking pieces for most of my life. These items have actually reached the state of FREE items on my Cost per Wear scale ;O haha! The leather cuff studded with silver metal and crystals is around 10 years old by DSquared2, I’ve done a bit of a search and found a few alternatives that would have a similar effect here one by the same brand, currently on sale :D, or I looove this one here or how about this one for fierce fabulosity here The horn pendant was from a Spanish brand called Unode50, One of 50, and as I bought it 4 years or so ago, clearly it is not still available, but similar here and the skull pendant, exact here was likewise purchased several years.
For the next look the addition of a schoolboy style jacket renders the B&W pallete even more chic. I’m wearing the same scarf which is a very old one from my fav Zadig, if I were to reappraise this look I’d defo add an McQueen scarf here or here or I also like this one from Kenzo here The blazer is linen [current but sold out Zara] similar here and I like this one here
Here I’m looking angelic ;O in the same outfit…the jeans [black this time] are old favorites fro Zadig, the new rendition is here and these ones are on my lust list ;O here or for a less pricy option here
The boot obsession you will all be familar with, although soon the temperature here will be too hot to wear them! These are the real deal here but if you really love the style there are many similar looking copies around, from Basalt is my favoritehere My box bag is a previous season Zadig, here is this season’s version.
I sometimes pin this ribbon brooch to add a vintage military feel, similar here and my other jewelery has all featured on the blog in the past, mostly from the aforementioned jewelery brands.
…and just to show how valuable are my style tips here I’m sharing some of my secrets with one of the Ale-Hop brand’s exponents of B&W style!!!!
Thanks for dropping by my friends, bye for now, Sarah ;D x
