Firstly, you may have noticed the little asterisks following some of the items featured in this post. I’ve seen many bloggers use this symbol to communicate to their readers that the product has been gifted to them and although I’ve always made it clear which posts contain gifted items, I’ve never been specific about which particular ones. I realise now the importance of this following the introduction of new strict regulations for bloggers and YouTubers so from here on, each item that has been sent to me for reviewing or promotional purposes will be marked with an asterisk.
Phew, now that’s out of the way – on to the outfit! Granted, fashion doesn’t get much simpler than this. The focus of this outfit was these gorgeous laser-cut detail shoe boots by Steve Madden (gifted to me by John Lewis as part of their #myshoestory campaign) which I just absolutely adore; I love the intricacy of the design and the lace-up detail to the heel – so sophisticated. I picked up the nude accents in the boots with this super-cosy camel jumper from French Connection (which I also have in navy because I love it so much). It’s a loose-fitting, almost shapeless style that looks great either tucked into high waisted trousers like I’ve done here or worn loose over a pair of skinny jeans – such a bargain at £20 (the perks of living near a McArthurGlen designer outlet)! These paperbag-waist Zara trousers were also an absolute steal at just £24.99. I’ve always loved a high waist, loose-fitting trouser – the mottled grey and ribbon detail made these a must-have. I threw on my Warehouse biker jacket to ‘toughen up’ the look and make it less casual.
I also want to mention my gorgeous new Mother of Pearl phone case from Case Hut. Although it’s not exactly cheap (it retails at £80), it’s definitely a luxurious accessory that would make a perfect gift for either yourself or someone special in your life. The back of the case has a hard, super-smooth texture and the pearls themselves glisten under the light. It’s so feminine and simply beautiful, I love it.
Love, Beth xo.
