Here I am, styling the accessories I picked up last week Saturday in Bridgend at the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet. I posted a closeup photo of them on Instagram the other day. As I'm not a huge fan of trends and following them, I only bought items that I'd be able to wear daily and with any outfit. Versatility is key.
Like I mentioned in my last post, I used the opportunity to tick a few things off my wishlist. This leather shoulder bag is from the Osprey store. If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you've probably noticed that I wear my black shoulder bag from Zara a lot. I'd been on the hunt for a new bag - preferably a leather one - to add a bit of variety to my outfits and thanks to McArthur Glen, I found this bag. There was a black version in the store as well but purple is my favourite colour and it's a shade of purple that I feel will still go with a lot of other colours. You've probably noticed that I also wear my black studded leather tassel loafers from Zara a lot. I thought a non-pointy pair would be a nice addition to my wardrobe and I came across this pair in the Kurt Geiger store. I've got a thing for tasseled loafers.
The blue stud earrings are from the Fossil store. I've needed new sterling silver jewellery for a while now because I accidentally gave my collection to charity. I prefer silver to gold. I'm the type to not buy a bag I love just because it's got gold detailing. I made a vow to myself to stop buying metal costume jewellery from high-street stores as they start to fade after a short while. That really gets on my nerves.
Charlotte helped me take these photos on Wednesday. It was a nice sunny day but that was just nature tricking us. It was windy, the wind was cold and I looked like I was about to cry in half the photos she took. The gif in this post makes me laugh. If you happen to notice why then cheers to you.
