With all the grey and gloomy weather—and the horrible hair day I’m currently having—it’s important to wear an outfit that takes your mind off the negative. And how can you be mad when you’re wearing turquoise? It’s the colour of the ocean, of summer, and of all things good—plus, it always makes me feel happy and calm (VERY important when you’re having a bad hair day!)
Also, another Summer essential of mine is the classic striped top—in black and white, of course. It’s so preppy yet Parisian chic, and is the one pattern that goes with everything. See how I styled it in my Valentine’s Day post!
This jersey midi skirt from Topshop is my favourite. It goes with nearly everything, it’s stretchy, and it’s super comfy! A little too warm to wear during the hot summer months when I go to Lebanon, but perfect for this 11ºC weather!
Let’s talk ACCESSORIES. The great thing with figuring out outfits for this blog is that it’s pushed me to dig out all my jewellery that—for some reason—I stopped wearing altogether. I LOVE the chunky beads (and the turquoise!) on these necklaces.
This bag might just be my lifeline. Yes, it can be a little on the small side when I’ve got a chunky purse to stuff inside, but it’s perfect for all-day shopping trips and for touristing during the holidays. It’s light and compact, and ultra-feminine with the big bow! It’s also red, one of my favourite colours, and the fact that it goes with nearly everything makes it a perfect suitcase/travel essential!
