I’ll admit. I am a little materialistic at times and new buys do please me. I’m a fashion student, I’m allowed!
My style has always been, and always probably will be, very much black and gold so this season has caught my eye big time. I think that accessories can really make a simple outfit look great and I am all about aesthetics in simple clothing. Think plain shirt but then the detailing such as gold tipped collars or gold buttons on the cuffs just makes it not so plain and suddenly interesting. Accessories can do the same.
I fell in love with these ankle boots with the gold studded buckles from Dorothy Perkins and they’re really comfy and wearable everyday too – a must in my list when buying shoes. And with the 20% student discount in there..well it was kind of a bonus
Then there are the Zara sunglasses with the studs around the frame. Oh Zara. I told you I could buy everything in there at the moment…okay so yeah, it’s coming to Winter. But you never know, we still get the odd sun here and there and it’s lower so it’s right in your eyes when you’re in the car!
And finally the hair tie with the gold cuff from H&M. Such a cool idea and perfect for jazzing up your hair in a contemporary simple way. I even wear this to the gym and I suddenly look stylish in my gym clothes!
The perfume is a must have in my books. Okay, I am a bit of a girly girl and one of those who has a collection of perfume bottles at home. I like to smell good…I think that’s acceptable, and this one is a classy day and night sophisticated smell. Perfect.
Then I thought I’d throw in my recent favorite snacks as of late. I’ve gone back to basics it seems. Pumpkin seeds, goji berries and dates are my everyday ones at the moment along with fresh fruit. I used to eat a lot of bars and baked goods with nut butter but I’m just listening to what my body wants. Kind of a good thing really because bars can be expensive to buy all the time! I also used to prefer snacking on nuts more and it seems I’ve just wanted pumpkin seeds all the time…maybe I need more zinc?
What are your favorite ways to accessorize?
