Wednesday Wishes – Smart Casual
Happy Wednesday y’all! Halfway to the weekend, I can almost smell it. I know it’s been a while, but here I am with a new episode of Wednesday Wishes! The theme this time is Smart Casual.
I bought these boyfriend jeans (5) a couple of months ago and love them. They’re perfect for lazing around in when I just can’t seem to find the energy to make an effort – I particularly like them with my pink polka dot faux-Converse! – but I’ve been on the hunt for some stilettos or dazzling shoes to pair them with for a night out. One of my biggest style inspirations is Alexis at Brighton Style Memos, who totally rocks this look.
I couldn’t decide which pair of shoes to go with, so I’m just going to say both of them. I would never buy shoes without trying them on first, but these two definitely made my heart skip a beat. I love the simple design of these stilettos from Zara (6) and I’m intrigued by these Carvela at Kurt Geiger shoes (4). A friend has a pair from the same collection (and, may I add, a much nicer pair – but you can’t buy the same shoes as your friend, right?) and they are so comfortable! If I’m wearing casual trousers I need to smarten it up, and this top from Cos is perfect (1). Simple, but with great detail. This would work so well with simple black trousers, too – or printed trousers. So basically it’s an investment piece. And then we come onto the final dish of the day – accessories. A friend set up Rah and Rah with her sister and father, and they make the most wonderful jewellery. One day I will ask them to make something just for me, but for now I am dreaming of these beautiful pieces. (2,3)
So there are my Wednesday Wishes! Anything catch your eye?
