necklace: river island
shoes: river islandIt's amazing how accessories can change the look of the total outfit, isn't it? This necklace is from River Island, and typically, I didn't really like it when it first arrived. I was having one of those feel-like-I-must-wear-this-but-don't-know-why days this morning and just felt that I had to wear the necklace and now, surprise surprise, I like it. I like how it makes my whole look very tribal, which is a trend that I never thought I would get into. I like to keep things simple and to me, tribal is a mish mash of prints, textures and colours, and very very loud. Very not me. Blogging has really helped me take bits of pieces from trends (some that I never thought I would like or wear!) and work them into a selection of favourite out fits. Whenever I'm having one of those don't know what to wear days I hit a few of my favourite blogs for inspiration. Thank-you guys!
I was lusting over these sandals at the start of the UK summer and almost bought them online. For whatever reason (I think I was lusting over a few similar styles from a few other stores and didn't know which ones to get) I didn't buy them but stumbled upon them a few months later in the River Island sale. They were an absolute bargain (a third of their original price!) and will be my staple sandal this summer. Chunky 'man' sandals are starting to hit the stores here now so I am super happy that I managed to snap these ones up when I did. That is the advantage of living in Australia - what is on sale in the UK is what is going to be 'trendy' here in the coming season.
