building blocks

6:16 pm

My first entry in #RICOMPANYSTREETSTYLED competition.
How fab are my new sunglasses?! They're tortoiseshell, kinda round shaped but actually suit me, plus they have glitter on the sides and they were only a pound at Primark. Smashed it. I normally avoid mixing black and brown but here I just thought it worked with the brown accessories, including this lovely 'Alexa' Mulberry knock off I bought on ebay well over a year ago now, it's done me well for a Hong Kong bargain. With all of these pieces being a bit simple, or 'building blocks' as I like to call them (great for building outfits..it makes sense to me), I added a bit of interest with the flocked, textured pattern on this lovely river island skirt and statement necklace.

  1. Gorgeous outfit - I really love the bag since the Alexa is like my dream bag, and that is a pretty good knock off. The glasses look really good too, and they're a real steal xo
