E’s lookbook ‘Monochromatic for the rain’

Lookbook:

Jacket: Primark

Skirt: Primark

Boots: Aldo

A white, pleated faux leather skirt worn with a short, black faux leather jacket and black over the knee, faux leather boots.

Wearing a white skirt on a rainy day is asking for trouble unless it is a faux leather pleated skirt, that any dirty water can be just wiped off it. I have paired it obviously with another faux leather garment- short, black jacket and of course faux leather black boots. A monochromatic look for a rainy day.

E’s lookbook ‘Minty’

Lookbook:

Coat: Primark

Shirt: New Look

Jumper: Primark

Trousers: Primark

Bag: DKNY

Boots: Primark

A brown coat worn with a minty jumper, white shirt with broderie anglaise, black, sparkly trousers, brown boots and a black shopper.

The logic behind the picture

Making the most of the coat and warm weather. This shade of brown goes beautifully with pale green, minty colour. I have added a white shirt to make it crisper. And with broderie angles picking out around the collar adding an extra detail making this rather basic outfit more elevated. Black sparkly, trousers and a black shopper tying it all together.

E’s lookbook ‘All cream and white’

Lookbook:

Jumper: George

Trousers: Topshop

Trainers: Primark

Always a classic. Any combination of cream and white works for me. It’s good to have a few items in the same colour for days when you are just not inspired at all. The texture of the jumper breaks up the monotony and makes the outfit more summer appropriate.

E’s lookbook ‘Red sequined vest’

Lookbook:

Vest: Armani Exchange

Trousers: Primark

Sandals: Primark

Bracelet unknown

Bag; Rowallan

The simplest of the outfits: vest, trousers and sandals. The sequines do all the talking. The colours very classic: red, navy blue and white. Simple bracelet for an extra interest.

E’s lookbook ‘Circles’

Lookbook:

Dress: White Stuff

Brooch unknown

Bag: Rowallan

Trainers: Primark

Is she wearing a broch? Yes. I know, even I’m surprised. The dress has an interesting material. full of round holes and the pattern is circles too. But from a distance, the dress looks rather plain. But thanks to that round, navy blue brooch the outfit gets this tad more interesting.

E’s lookbook ‘Layer cake’

Lookbook:

Earrings DIYed

Blouse: TwoFourTwo

Trousers: Primark

Belt unknown

Sandals: Select

When I look at this image I think layer cake. Each colour is separated by the other going from the earrings to the sandals. The earrings are DIYed from a necklace that I did not like. The blouse I have altered to fit me better. And the belt in the trousers I have replaced with a more suitable one. It’s all in the detail.

E’s lookbook ‘Autumnal birds’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Blouse: Monsoon

Trousers: Attitude by Renee

Sandals: Select

This is a bit autumnal look. The colours are not so vivid. The blouse served me well over the years, despite the statement sleeves, that are specific to a certain era, the blouse has this boho vibe that I like. Paired with trousers that were gifted and I find the colour challenging, but the fit is impeccable. White sandal as a homage to almost gone summer and statement earrings because I barely wear them.

E’s lookbook ‘Nautical preppy’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Vest: H&M

Cardigan: Primark

Skirt: M&S

Sandals: Select

Bag: Rowallan

I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.

E’s lookbook ‘ More green and floral pink’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

V-neck: Topshop

Bracelet unknown

Trousers: H&M

Sandals: Select

Well, let’s be honest there is only so much you can do with a pair of trousers in summer weather. This look is more for the evening when the temperatures drop a little and you can actually bear a long sleeve. I do seem to like this particular shade of green as I do have a couple of things that go together. The same idea with sandals but these are more cream colour than stark white and a matching bracelet and pale gold earrings, as a necklace, in my opinion, would be too much.

E’s lookbook ‘Floral and white’

Lookbook:

Shirt: Tu

Trousers: H&M

Sandals: Primark

Bag: DKNY

As you can see the trousers are staying with me. Now I need to try to style them differently every time. So this time a little bit 50ties style with a white linen shirt tied at the waist, big, black shopper and flat, white sandals.
