Sorry Coldplay, had to quote from your classic song.
So I totally fell in love with these Dagmar culottes (yes am currently obsessed with culottes -who would have believed it?) I loved the stormy mountain scene painted on it and knew that this was going to be a focal point for the outfit. (Yes, there is a danger having attention on my thighs and crotch area but the print was so PRETTY!) I was gutted that the matching shirt was unavailable in my size but looking back in hindsight, I think for my personal style, it may have been a bit too much. (Too much print for moi you say?)
For the top. I took a complete departure from my usual comfort zone. I would generally pair these culottes with a simple black T or a black silk tank/shirt. Vein kindly lent me some pieces which really encapsulate the sports luxe trend as they are made from stretchy jersey. The jacket is also in a bright yellow which I was nervous about it as it was quite fitted especially around the arms but in fact I am happy Vein pushed me. The jacket is also from Dagmar. The big push for me was to wear the black singlet from BACK by Anna Sofie Back. I have seen her brand on many of the big blogger including such people like Susie Bubble. However, firstly, I am wary of something with a big strip of branding but also something that is super fitted. In fact, it really is too much of the “street” style that I can never seem to get the hang of.
Keep Accessories Simple
So what accessories? I kept it all simple with my VOID watch, Filippa K black flats and bag by Baum und Pferdgarten. The trousers and the colour palate of yellow is so much that I wanted some simple accessories to ground the outfit otherwise it could have been a hot Scandi mess!
All clothing and props apart from the lipstick (Thanks to MAC for my Heroine lipstick) and watch (VOID http://www.voidwatches.com) come from Vein in St Francis Yard.
