A splash of colour

If like me, 99% of your wardrobe is black as exciting as mixing pastels and prints and bold colours is, its also intimidating.

I'm working on adding colourful accessories and hosiery to my wardrobe as my first foray into colour.

These would be my picks for easy colour addage 
(as in adding colour, is that a word in this context?)

E A Burns

I already have orange, but i think i now need a baby pink !!

And also from E A Burns



And i couldn't not feature this....

            Mosquito - Resin ring 


I have LOVED this ring since it appeared on the front page of Etsy - It's exactly what I'm trying to be with my style. Girly and clean but with a unique/unexpected twist !!

More coveted jeans

Since i don't wear a lot of denim, i have surprised myself by lusting over numerous pairs of jeans. 

I mentioned 2 A-MAY-ZING pairs from Alice + Olivia last week  and today I'm sharing these, which i saw in the latest Monki magazine (which i love by the way !!) that have the most fantastic print.

' Lisa' will be in stores from the middle of February and will be priced at 40
There will also be a dress, tunic and tights available in the same print

All they need is a white graphic tee  (I'm thinking from Ted's Draws  ) and some KILLER heels (anything from Jeffrey Campbell will fit the bill)

It's all Giorgio Armani's fault

I posted the other week about a Blazer i have been ooohhhing and ahhhing over for a while so i though i would expand the post a little and show you why i have the sudden urge need for another blazer in my wardrobe  ......

It's all down to this gorgeous image from Giorgio Armani's Spring 2012 Ad Campaign

Apart from the practicality of having a blazer than can be thrown on over a top/dress on a mild spring day (optimism !!) they really are versatile. 
I only currently have 1 but its seen me through job interviews, nights out clubbing, romantic meals and trips to the zoo.

Here are my current favourites...

The Vintage Love !!!

               Vintage Deep Purple Stripe Blazer



                                            I still love it !!

The High Street Favourite

Blue/black stripe ponti jacket

I actually coooed out loud over this is store the other day (which seemingly embarrassed one of my colleagues, surely i am not the only person that does that ?)

The if i had the figure and money favourite


I seriously think it's time i have another !!
