Good evening my bangle loving beauties,
Today’s post I wanted to talk about my second favourite way of expressing my individuality – accessorising 😊
From as far back as I can remember I have always loved jewellery. My earliest memory is of when my beloved grandad bought me an engraved gold bangle. It never left my wrist until it sadly snapped when I was 16! It still holds pride of place in my jewellery box.
Even now I always have an array of bracelets and bangles adorning my wrists as I just feel so naked without them. That subtle jingle jangle whenever I move is like my personal security blanket in a way. I have accrued numerous trinkets on my many travels around the world; I love how they tell a story, capturing a special moment in my life. The below photo shows some of the bracelets I bought whilst in the Amalfi Coast celebrating my 25th birthday. The silver charm one is from Thomas Sabo, I just fell in love with the turquoise colouring against my olive skin and the heart bracelet is from the wonderful Tiffany and Co.
I also am partial to a great hat especially at this time of year as it prevents my in between styles hair from looking wind swept or getting rained on in the unpredictable british weather. I just purchased a vintage bowler hat which I debuted this past weekend. I paired it with a polo neck crop top, skinny wet look jeans from Massimo Dutti and my studded Converse.
I have always absolutely loved watches, although my early collection of fashion styles have undergone a dramatic revamp ever since I started working in an office. I adore oversized men’s watches and I am lucky enough to own Mont Blanc and Longines timepieces which always make any outfit look chic and elegant. They are a worthy investment.
My all time favourite way of accessorising by far however, is by donning a super pair (or pairs in my case) of sunglasses. On a gloriously sunny afternoon I love putting on a pair of my fabulous frames to finish off any look, whether it be work wear or casual at the weekend. I recently purchased an amazing limited edition pair by Ray Bans when I was in Spain, and I also love these Burberry ones. The classic tortoise shell design is updated with the brushed metal arms making them so 2015.
Whichever way you plan to accessorise this summer, keep it classic, fun and most of all bright! When the sun is shining, the bolder the better 😀
Until next week, take care
