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.
