E’s lookbook ‘Lavender top’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Top: Wednesday’s Girl

Denim: M&S

Bracelet unknown

Clutch: Julien McDonald

Brogues: Primark

A short, buttoned up pale lavender top with a small peplum worn with cropped denim trousers, and silver grey accesorries.

That is an outfit that instantaneously made me feel cool

and I am not referring to the colour palette. The top in a very pale lavender colour buttoned up with a small peplum is another charity shop acquisition. The colour and cut are extremely flattering. The same can be said about denim. another random charity shop purchase. Because of the crop, the trousers remain relatively cool even in high temperatures. Some accessories for more interest and brogues for some comfort.

E’s lookbook ‘Meddow in a top’

A highly flowery pastel blouse worn with paper bag waist trousers, cream bag and brogues and pearly earrings

I have high hopes for this trousers.

They do remind me of my youth and the 80-ties style is very much up my stream. The colour is perfect, pale blue, so all other pastels harmonize with it as shown in this example. The blouse highly elasticated can be worn in many ways, but the most comfortable is just pulled above the shoulders. Let me also draw attention to the bag, highly inspired by Chanel is surprisingly roomy and despite clinking of the chains comfortable to wear. I have finished off with some pearly jewellery for an even more feminine touch to offset the masculine trousers.

E’s lookbook ’80-ties vibe’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Coat: Primark

Jumper: Damart

Trousers: Primark

Brogues: Deichmann

A white, red and navy blue jumper with gold buttons worn with navy blue denim, white coat and navy blue brogues and golden earrings.

You know the feeling when you find something that feels fun.

I had the feeling when I have found this jumper. It looks like taken straight out of the 80-ties. The colours, the colour blocking even the golden buttons with no purpose other than just a decoration. Can’t say that it is going to be the most versatile item in my wardrobe, but it is a jumper and it is reasonably warm. I have paired it with navy blue denim, a white coat and gold earrings- not much of a brainer. Not sure how many more styling ideas that jumper can give but wearing it that day was fun!

E’s lookbook ‘Black and grey’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Coat unknown

Hoody unknown

Trousers: Primark

Bag- vintage

Brogues: Deichmann

A black coat worn with a grey hoody, black trousers, black quilted cross body bag, black brogues and silver earrrings.

This is an example how things not always go to plan.

This was supposed to be Chanel inspired look. The Chanel inspired earrings-check, the coat-check, the bag-check, the casual vibe-check. And still, somehow it is a big flop. The look is wearable, but either the picture is not the best or the rest of the elements bring it down, Will soon attempt something Chanel inspired, hopefully, next time will be more successful.

E’s lookbook ‘Black and flares’

Lookbook:

Blazer: H&M

T-shirt:Brookhaven

Flares: H&M

Brogues: Deichmann

Bag unknown

Bracelet unknown

A baseball top worn with a black oversized blazer, half flared denim, black brogues and black cross body bag.

How not to be scared of flares.

Flares always make a statement in any outfit. I do need to be in a mood to wear them as they always draw the attention of passers-by. Living in the era of skinny jeans any other cut will be noticed especially the opposite one. But this time I think I have cracked it. I do not look like taken out of the 70-ties. Whether it is the baseball top or the oversized blazer or the hair pulled back. I do like the look.

E’s lookbook ‘Old navy classic’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: Monsoon

Bomber: Stella

Trousers: H&M

Brogues: Primark

Bag: Rowallan

A pale pink, floral bomber jacket worn with a waterfall navy blue cardigan, pink brogues and navy blue jeans and a bag.

The picture does not do it a justice.

The bomber jacket barely visible in this picture has a floral print with a pale gold metallic thread and pale pink background and it’s stunning. Combined with a much plainer cardigan, skinny jeans and pale pink brogues makes the outfit wearable and cool. want more colour keep the cardigan open, want it less wrap the cardigan up. the colour combination is neutral with a bit of a pop of metallic. overall a croud pleaser.

A white puffer coat worn with a cream vest, metallic, floral pattern bomber jacket, cream, pleated skirt and pale grey brogues.

Wearing more pale colours in the autumn

I’m always taking advantage of the days that it didn’t rain to wear paler colours/white even in the autumn. Lots of shops do lighter colour jackets and coats. Long gone are the times when winter coats came only in dull, dark colours. The hole shift in fashion is enticing and I do get sucked into buying it and then it rains all winter long. I have pulled all things pale, new and old. The oldest is probably the bomber jacket. Pale pink and grey with metallic floral pattern, always a statement. Also like the vertical and horizontal lines of the skirt and the jacket, even though totally unintentional.

E’s lookbook ‘Autumnal’

Lookbook:

Coat: Primark

Scarf homemade

Jumper unknown

Trousers: Zara

Brogues: Primark


This time of the year again. Getting colder, but still too warm to jump to winter coats. A coat, just a cover-up, a bit smarter than a cardigan, but doing its job is the best answer. This one imitates suede but is much softer. A cream jumper as a homage to the gone summer. Army green trousers and brogues, navy blue bag and a stripy, homemade scarf that brings all of the colours together.

E’s lookbook ‘Tin-man sweater’

Lookbook:

Sweater: Forever21

Denim: Matalan

Brogues: Primark

Can’t help but think Tin Man every time I look at this sweater. I do like metallics and they do serve me well in my wardrobe. Metallics and white is a classic combination for summer, whether it’s a summer dress and metallic accessories or white trousers and a metallic top, it always looks fresh in my eyes.

E’s lookbook ‘Pale grey and beige’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Top: Primark

Trousers: Stradivarius

Wristlet: Julien McDonald

Brogues: Primark

When you need something fresh but neutral also, this combination seems perfect. I have added some silver because it wouldn’t be otherwise. But it’s always good to have something beige and pale grey in your summer wardrobe. Also, I have never worn these earrings since I have bought them. Every time I have put them on, something was ‘off’ about them, until I have figured out that they were too long for my face, so a bit of scissors action and now they fit just fine.
