Trend Watch: Quirky & Fun Statement Clutches

Statement-clutchFor me clutches are the perfect way to inject a little fun and personality into an outfit, and I am loving how many designer names are embracing the little quirky, statement bags in their collections. I am a huge fan of Charlotte Olympia, Kate Spade, Sophia Webster, Olympia Le Tan, and Anya Hindmarch, and I am so pleased I have a few in my bag collection, but when it comes to designer I tend to opt for their classic styles over the fun ones, so I have been on the hunt for some purse friendly fun alternatives, and I can’t believe how many beauties I found for under £40.

It seems that all the major high street and online retailers are embracing the statement clutch trend, with the likes of ASOS, Next, New Look, Debenhams and Accessorize taking inspiration from Chanel’s supermarket sweep, Anya Hindmarch’s love of brands, Fendi’s cute monsters, and there is even a copy of Sophia Webster’s speech bubble, with a little DIY help.

It is hard to pick a favourite, but if you twist my arm I think I have to be edging towards the Next offerings, I love their Drumstick clutch, not only for its nostalgic nod to my childhood, I loved those lollies, but also because its candy stripes will brighten up any look and the perfume bottle is just cute. I am also loving Accessorize’s Apple Juice bag, not quite Chanel, but hey for £29 what do you expect.

Which clutch is your favourite?

My Style: Festival-Inspired Floral Love Affair

My-Style-Festival-gap-2

What is your go-to festival look?

Mine would probably be skinny jeans/denim shorts, a vintage rock tee, a bold floral kimono, some wellies and a few statement pieces of jewellery that I would probably have picked up from Primark. For this season, with the weather being a little warmer, I thought I would channel my girlie side and opt for a fun and flirty dress, pops of colour, of course sensible but cool footwear, and a statement headpiece, well it wouldn’t be a festival without wearing something silly now would it.

What I love about this look, other than how happy this tropical print shirtdress makes me from Gap, even when it starts to rain, has to be how comfortable I am not wearing wellington boots. I have a problem with not being able to find wellies that fit me well, they are always too big around the ankle, I seem to not be able to walk properly and they make my feet ache, maybe it is because I haven’t invested in quality, but I was so pleased to try out Sorel’s Slimshortie style. They are kind of part cowboy, part biker, with their full-grain waterproof leather they can take on any challenges of a festival, plus they will look great in winter as well.

To tie my boots into my look I added a tan belt, which really nips in this cute dress, and then to add a summer pop I went for this fun pompom headpiece from Asos, which is currently in the sale so snap it up quick, I just thought it looked perfect with my new specs from Kite, the yellow Shore Projects watch and my Rebecca Minkoff bag.

What do you think – would you wear this to a festival? Also have you tried out Sorel’s Slimshortie boots?

My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains

my-style-denim-skirt-12

Last week when I was in London having a spot of afternoon tea, I stopped by Somerset House, because why the hell not really, but I realised while walking around and of course getting snapped by Sherin that I rarely see the fountains as the square is normally taken over by the London Fashion Week tent.

It was weird just admiring the gorgeous architecture, dancing in-between the fountain jets, and generally seeing the square without the hoards of fashionistas, and best of all not cursing the cobbles when rushing off to a show. To show how pretty Somerset House is in the sun I did a 360 Instagram video, if you want to check it out head on over to my Instagram feed.

As we seem to be seeing a little sun lately I have been trying to embrace my summer wardrobe, I know that my last style post was also a denim skirt, but that one was a pencil skirt and this cutie is a flared one from Topshop’s tall collection.

Granted only subtle differences but I love that this flared skirt can literally just be thrown on with nearly anything. I paired mine with a lace detailing black top from H&M, tribal StylistPick flats that I picked up in their sale last summer, and added a pop of colour with one of my favourite bags by Rebecca Minkoff.

My Style: The Swans Travel To France

my-style-swans-in-france-

So you might have noticed that my blog was a little quiet last week, I was in France visiting family and I forgot to put an out-of-blog on, to be honest I did plan to blog while I was away but I just decided to relax and take a mini break from my laptop.

Much like the weather here is was sunny and bright while we were away, well for the most of it, so I thought it was a great chance to wear my gorgeous Tory Burch swan printed wedges. These beauties have been in my shoe collection since last year when I got them in The Outnet sale and I have been praying for the sunshine so I could wear them, and it was worth nearly making my luggage over the allowed 10kg allowance on Ryan Air!!!my-style-swans-in-france-13

As we were just pottering around the garden, checking out neighbouring villages and getting very jealous over the gorgeous châteauxs **she below my dream house/castle**, I decided to team the swans with my Hudson crop jeans, which have become my new favourite and a slouchy tee from New Look, oh and lots of cute jewellery pieces.

As well as giving my new wedges a run out I also decided to try out how to work a tuck, well I have seen numerous celebs and some of my fav style bloggers so I though I would give it ago, also I was inspired by a piece in People Style that I read on the plane over.

I went for the loose front tuck, a kind of relaxed look where you loosely tuck in the front and let the sides and back hang out. I am not sure I fully mastered it – but hey I gave it a go – and I liked it.

**Coming soon – the side tuck, the full tuck and the smart front tuck – only joking, well sort of!!!**

Daily Shop: Biker Cuff Loving At Accessorize

I saw this beauty while shopping this week in Accessorize and I have been crushing over it ever since. This chunky futuristic biker bangle, with its mock studded chain effect is only £12, I know right bargain price *kicking myself for not just buying when I saw it*.

I just think it would look amazing paired with black jeans and a lady-like white blouse for the perfect fashion juxtapose, or how about pairing with your favourite little black dress. Seriously, this bangle has lots of potential!!
