Un-Coordinated Co-ords / Cobalt Blue Boucle Jacket




Shirt & Trousers : c/o Laura Ashley. Earrings : ZARA. Shoes : Matalan (!!) Jacket : ASOS. Atrocious posture when seated : stylists own.

Hello all!
Seeing as a large proportion of my bedroom is an homage to Laura Ashley interiors, I was rather excited when I was contacted by them asking if I'd style some of their fashion pieces.
I've been really excited to photograph the items I chose for a kind of fun 'back to school / college' look - perhaps minus the heels for the purpose of getting to lectures on time. I paired the shirt and trousers together because they create something in-between clashing prints and co-ords, both of which I love. Although it's the same print in the sense that the shapes are identical, the colours are reversed, so I picked out the red within the diamonds on the trousers with some similarly coloured shoes, topping it off with an almost obnoxiously blue boucle jacket and some standard OTT earrings.

On another note, this friday (so, tomorrow!) I'm curating and taking part in a Blogger Style Show at The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for 'Dress Up! Live Friday at The Ashmolean'. As well as the show I'm organising (which will repeat 3 times throughout the night so you can't miss it!) there'll also be a runway show and an amazing couture-style exhibition with live fashion sketching, to name just a few of the highlights. Oh, and it's completely free to attend - so if any of you live in the Oxford area I would absolutely love to see some smiling faces tomorrow evening!

  3. This is such a beautiful outfit! Recently bought those earrings and only wear them with my hair down to 'even' them out, but wearing them with hair up looks so elegant and really shows them off properly!
