Coral Pleated Skirt / Floaty Crop Top / Jewel and Pearl Necklace



Hello all!

I'm more excited than usual to share this outfit with you for several reasons; the first of which being this necklace. I really love the mixture of the rich jewel colours with the pearls and gold framing. Next, these black, cat eye Miu Miu sunglasses with gold hardware are from Sunglasses Shop and are oh-so-perfect that I just want to wear them all day and all night. I want to wear them while I sleep. Bit weird maybe. Finally, I'm actually wearing flat shoes. I can't remember the last time I wore flat shoes in a blog post. I certainly don't 'dress up' for my blog, I wear the outfits I feature and I do wear low-mid heels almost everyday, but I'm trying to 'cut back' (so tragic) in preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris. I want to feel comfortable walking around all day, rather than being massively aware of my shoes - but generally I tend to feel a bit inelegant and lollopy in flats. It's just because I've become so used to how I look and feel in heels. I've brainwashed myself. Ridiculous, I know. 

I've now mentally filed this outfit as one to take with me on my trip - do you think I'll fit in on the streets of Paris? I heard a couple of weeks ago that to be stylish in Paris you have to be super skinny, blonde and only wear black. 0/3. In that case... do you think they'll even let me out of The Channel Tunnel?

P.s. I'd also love some feedback on this new format - do you prefer my jabberings to come before the outfit images (as usual) or like this, with the images first and text afterwards? I'd love to hear your thoughts.


Skirt & Belt : ASOS. Top : River Island. Shoes & Necklace : ZARA. Earrings : H&M. Sunglasses : Miu Miu c/o Sunglasses Shop.
