Don't you hate it when things don't go to plan? especially when you have been planning it for months?!
You might remember in the previous post Birthday Blues, that I wasn't feeling my best, and as a result I ended up cancelling a trip to Santorini I had been REALLY looking forward to for months.
I was let down at the last minute, and after being given the run around by a few people, and I didn't have a plan B in place...so I just said to myself "Screw it!" and that was that (I'm still kicking myself over my decision though)
As I had so much time on my hands, I was able to take a few outfit pics, paint the living room.....and of course shop!
I loooove this blouse so much! it is definitely a current fave in my closet at the moment. I love that although it can be worn with monochrome palettes, it can also be paired with an array of colours and still work! This outfit was a mix of monochrome, animal print and a pop of red (which always works great with leopard prints!)
I am enjoying wearing smaller jackets as the weather has improved recently! It makes a nice change from maxi coats and super thick scarves!
I found the boots in Zara in the sale (do they ever not have a sale?) for £19.99! They are so comfy and the small kitten heel means they are sexy AND a breeze to walk in!, Unfortunately the heel tip has already come off after only 2 wears, but they did come with spare heel tips.
I find that leopard print accessories are a great way to incorporate animal print into your look without it taking over your outfit. As well as shoes, scarves and clutches also work. I use to shy away from any kind of print, but now I embrace it fully!
The bag, I won't go into detail here as I would like to do a seperate post about it. But it is a vintage Chanel tote which was a lucky find on eBay :-D
Jeans £10 Matalan | Blouse £12 Matalan | Jacket £12.50 Topshop found on eBay | Boots £19.99 Zara | Bag Chanel Vintage | Sunglasses 5 Euros from Barcelona | Necklace £20 Aldo | Ring YSL Arty in Lapis Blue
Although things didn't turn out the way I wanted recently, it did teach me a few valuable lessons.
No.1 being not to put all my eggs in one basket....or in this case-someone else's basket, and number 2....Stop Procrastinating!! Make a plan and stick to it!....or at least have a plan B! (shaking my head)
How about you, are you guilty of procrastinating? and equally important-how do you style leopard pieces in your wardrobe?? Comment below and thanks for reading! :-D
