Mon Belle

Thursday, 10 April 2014



I have waited forever for the opportunity to blog this gorgeous clutch! It's just perfect for the summer however, I couldn't wait any longer and had to style it now for spring, but I still think it works quite well - what do you think? It's easily my favourite piece from this whole look. Who could possibly resist a lemon filled clutch? The yellow is so vibrant, it's beyond perfect! I could rave about it all day I really do love it and can't wait to use it more in the summer. Should we talk clothes now...

This outfit consists of various different pieces that probably shouldn't be paired together but somehow I think they work. There's all sorts going on: red, blue, mirrors, gold, stripes, logos and lemons! I think the final look is super fun which is perfect for spring/summer. Funnily enough almost this whole look is River Island, I always love their summer pieces, I think they're always bang on: a range of flirty skirts and fun prints which all just scream summer to me!

This skirt is a bright cobalt blue, great for those of you who don't like to go too wild when it comes to adding colour, a blue tone is a nice summer bright. It's a skater style skirt which is my favourite type of skit, I think it's really flattering over big hips as it sinches in at your waist and sits really nicely. The blue stripes on the T-shirt and 'Mon Belle' written across it make me think of Paris: breton stripes and French words.. well what else would it remind you of?

When it came to shoes I was stuck on what to wear.. I decided to stick to the Parisian theme going on with the top (somehow red also makes me think Paris) so I grabbed my red heels and I think they work really well! I also wore these super cool shades that I got in the winter, they're mirrored blue aviators which I think are super cool! I then added the best clutch ever and some gold accessories too.

This is how many times I almost got run over.. fashion blogging can be dangerous, it's risky business out on the streets!



Would you pair different patterns, colours and prints together like this? Do you think it works well?
