BRIGHTS!

Tuesday, 16 November 2010
















If you didn't know already, I LOVE a colour pop. And if the item is question is something an eccentric old lady might wear, bonus prints (triple bonus points if the lady in question is Iris Apfel). This bright green cardigan, therefore, was a no brainer. Look at the gold buttons! The bell sleeves! The swing shape! Turns out I've amassed quite the collection of bright separates - this is just the tip of the very colourful iceberg. My other favourites? The H&M pink swing coat which I bought years ago - SUCH a good buy. And this tomato red Cos dress, which I bought in a larger size so it would look even swingier. I always wear it with my OVK boots and a super high ponytail.

I hope you noticed that I matched my hat, jeans and boots, because I did that just for you. The other day I wore an entirely navy outfit - the hat and boots plus my indigo J Brand Love Storys and my boyfriend's navy jumper. Tonal dressing feels goooood.

Of course, the real star of this post is the elephant... He comes from Portobello market and loves colour popping almost as much as I do. I just need a name for him now... any ideas?

Outfit 1: Vintage cardigan, J Brand Gigi jeans, Office boots.

Outfit 2: Vintage hat, H&M coat, jeans and boots as before.

Outfit 3: Cos dress, Zara OVK boots.

  1. Excellent bold colours, yet very classy. Perfect choice of top knot, love elephant jewellery too.

  3. I thought he might need a more masculine alternative for when he's, you know, hangin' at the watering hole. x

  4. There is nothing better than a smug h&m buy that keeps going season after season and continues to look awesome! x

  5. Ahh, love all your colour pop pieces and that elephant (Oliva, did you decide? not masculine enough...? How about Martin, that's quite an elephanty sort of name) is perfect. love your look natalie, always chic but with a twist. xx

  11. That green cardigan is amazing! I think a colour pop is just what these winter months need. I have a similar elephant sized pendant, but mine is flat and now I wish he wasn't...

  12. The COS dress is too cute and has the greatest shade of red. Did you buy it recently or not? I don't live in a city so it takes a while for me to go to a COS store, but since I'm going to Paris in about a week....
    As for the elephant, I'd call him Marcel (the French way) or Victor.

    Lots of Belgian Love

  26. hello! i found your blog through jazzpad after recognizing you from london fashion week. i think i saw you briefly on one of the days, whilse you was with jill and shini...

    anyway, you probably don't remember so i better stop rambling, as i originally just wanted to comment to say how wonderful and versatile i think your hair is! it's beautiful. also i adore your use of block colour, in the past i have seen people who really can't pull it off but you certainly can.

    love, jazzabelle. x
