As I had so much fun doing my boots three ways looks, I asked twitter to suggest items for me to base outfits around next and my friend Katie (of The Neverending Tea Party) came up with this hat:
The best thing about this challenge is I already have a hat a bit like this that my husband bought me on our first holiday together, which of course I never wear because I can never think of ways to wear it. Well – I have three outfit inspirations now!
Look 1: Plum monochrome
Belted Prom Dress | M&S | £49.50
Therapy Triple Compartment Bag | House of Fraser | £39.20
Lennox Ballet Flats | ASOS | £25
Gipsy Purple Tights | New Look | £6.49
‘Quite The Thing’ Sheen Supreme Lipstick | MAC | £15.50
I do like a muted palette with splashes of one colour. Okay, between the hat, bag, tights and lipstick it’s quite a few splashes – but tell me you don’t love this! And seeing as Katie is the inspiration behind this post, the MAC lipstick is a tribute to her. Seriously, she’s even convinced me to wear make-up on a semi-regular basis.
Look 2: Casual colourful
Hampton Boyfriend Jean | Jigsaw | £75
Spot Shirt Layer Sweater | Next | £35
Converse All Star Low Red | Office | £44.99
Patterned Scarf | Uni Qlo | £9.90
Cute Cheeseburger Necklace | Little Miss Delicious | £25
I didn’t know where this one was going when I started it, but I really like it. I’m picturing the scarf tied around the hat to bring all of the bits together. This is definitely something I would wear for mooching around town in.
Look 3: Teal and Plum
White Stuff Glass Dress | House of Fraser | £55
Aimee Cropped Sleeve Blazer | BooHoo | £25
Black Cashmere Scarf | H&M | £34.99
Rhinestone Wedges | Everything5Pounds | £5
Beaded Tassel Drop Earrings | Topshop | £25
I want to call this look boho, but I think it only loosely fits in to this. However, I just love the teal against the purple so this had to be done. I’m a big fan of blazers – they can really jazz up a dress. And the shoes? Well the shoes are just too fun to say no to, right?
As always – do leave a comment to tell me which look you like most.
