Spring shopping list | Back to basics

April Shopping list
Holla April, it’s time we got some Spring shopping done! My style is all over the place recently so I’m going back to basics with smocks and breton tees.. and if they aren’t grey or black or some shade in between, I’m not interested. Spring is also the time for investment pieces so I think it’s about time I finally gave in and got myself that Rocco bag. Don’t you agree?

Dress – Urban Outfitters | Kimono & Sunglasses – Primark

My current wardrobe basically consists of day dresses and kimonos. I’m really not a Summer child but I’ve enjoyed wandering around in floaty outfits like this for the past few days. Although I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t patiently awaiting  the return of chunky knit scarfs and cosy hats.

Shopping List – June

June Shopping list
I don’t have a lot to say about this months shopping list other than, it’s my birthday this month so it’s completely justified that I buy everything. Especially the Coltrane boots, I’ve had my eyes on them bad boys for months. Gimmmeee.
I think that tie dye jumper would look pimping over a black dress (005) – and if you know me, you’ll know how much I appreciate a good tie dye.
PS – I left out 006, but I promise, I can count.. just about.

90s inspired outfit

Tee – Urban Outfitters | Sunglasses – Ebay | Hair Scrunchie – Vintage

Urban Outfitters describe this top as ‘A psychedelic field trip’ and that’s basically everything I want from a jersey. I couldn’t resist adding the sunglasses and scrunchie to embrace my love for the 90s. Some may say a little over the top, but who cares?

Pinafore and Lion Chain

Pinafore – New Look | Top – ASOS | Jacket – Similar Here | Bag – Primark | Necklace – eBay

If hair roots and over exposed pictures are your thing then you might like this post, if not then hopefully you can look past that and appreciate my effort. Or you could always take amusement in how unplanned the third picture is. 

I had this pinafore a really long time ago but it’s become a staple piece because it’s so easy to wear with everything in my wardrobe. I paired it with a chain and polo neck top to let my inner spice girl out and thought it juxtaposed nicely against the whole preppy school girl attire that the backpack and pinafore were creating.

My style musings are currently the cast of Saved By The Bell and I’m incorporating some kind of 90s trend into every single outfit I wear, if it’s not a pair of flatforms, it’s a hair scrunchie. Give me an American high school and call me Kelly Kapowski because I can see me wearing clothes from back in the day all Summer long.

Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 13

I should probably calm down with my monochrome enthusiasm, but it’s one of my favourite trends I’ve seen in a long time (probably because I now feel its acceptable to wear an all black attire). I’ve never been one to fill my wardrobe with plenty of colour and I’ve always felt a bit boring because of it, but now that everyone is beginning to do the same I don’t feel as bad about it.

Enough of my warped logic and onto what I actually planned on writing about, this monochromatic campaign fronted by Sky Ferreira. Since the return of Hedi Slimane and complete re-branding of the label, this collection is nothing that we didn’t expect. There’s some classic Slimane pieces in there, but the little glimpses of detail are enough to get anyone excited about this collection.

What’s your thoughts on this campaign and monochrome in general? A huge fan like myself or do you find it a little drab?
