The quaint beauty of London tends to bring out my love for fashion, especially classics, even more so! On this particular day I was feeling flirty and in the mood for some fun, hence my choice of a 70s look (find out more off 70s looks on my latest post). Rocking a white off-shoulder top with a cute detail on the front and wide billowing sleeves to counter London heat, I paired it with a suede pleated brown skirt.
Oh, What I did to find that perfect skirt I wanted all summer long. I checked every shop that ever existed, browsed every online shop I could think of, only to find this dream skirt hiding all along in the back of my own closet. The skirt was missing something those cute little front buttons I craved but never the less I found it and I didn’t have to look far.
You know what they say, sometimes the things we truly want are staring us in the eye. I paired the skirt with my comfy brown strappy sandals with a bit of a heel that I have had since forever and ever. Am a big believer that everything comes back in style so I tend to save/recycle call it what you want, it doesn’t change the fact that once upon a time I was super excited with this purchase, eventually everything you own becomes vintage and I love me some vintage.
let’s not forget an old piece of clothing or a smell of perfume takes us back in time, like a time machine. Don’t you agree? we have all been there. I must say, love and love! Nothing transforms an outfit better than a cute bag and I completed 70s look with this beige number that I am absolutely in love with all thanks to my best friend Celia got for me for my birthday! It is not only edgy and cool but also really convenient as it is big enough to fit my daily essentials without being bulky or looking tacky. Finally, I opted for minimal jewellery and decided to keep my hair down, simply parted at the front, for an interestingly windswept look and because the look flattered my outfit (win, win).
