I just want to say a big thanks to your replies in my last post, I've really taken on board the styling advice and comments received. The main opinions are pairing the skirt and shorts with a white vest or tee or shirt, a denim waistcoat and I also had a suggestion of colour blocking with the green skirt.
Wth this in mind, I decided to look for plain white tops this weekend. Yesterday I had a wonderful lunch with my mum at Harvey Nichols to celebrate her 75th birthday. Afterwards we browsed the Knightsbridge shops and one of my favourite High Street stores, Zara.
I rarely buy from the High Street anymore but I figured I should try and get brand new modern tops to go with my vintage items to make them look more stylish and versatile for the summer. I chose a couple of tops, one was this dark beige one which is a linen style tee which I'm wearing today with my Marni skirt and Peacock wedge sandals:
I think this top will go with a lot of my summer skirts and I really like the slouchy v neck and overall style of this tee. I also bought a vest/cami top in white to go with the Liberty shorts and Hunza skirt and I was pleased to win a Topshop denim waistcoat on ebay last night so hope these pieces will all style up well together!!
Todays thrfit finds were this cute leather black and brown satchel, which is minus its long strap but I still love it-it has a few compartments and is a great size too-not too big:
On Saturday, I was at the charity shop and saw this Reiss blouse for £6. I thought it was a lot to spend so left it, but considering I spent £15 on each of the Zara tops I quickly rushed back to the charity shop this morning and snapped the blouse up!!
It is folded at the bottom but is actually longer and it does style up quite slouchy. I was so pleased it hadn't gone as it will go with so many items in my wardrobe. So now I have a white blouse and a white vest top to style with last weeks finds.
Its half term this week so I'm having a rather chilled, relaxing week as the Vintage Fashion Fair is on this Sunday at Primrose Hill-click here if you want to apply for free tickets to get in!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and wishing you a great week ahead too!!
