Some days all you need is a fun polka-dot print and an eye catching clutch to make things better…
The iconic polka-dot is making a major appearance this season. We saw it on the runways and on the streets in our favourite fashion capitals. There’s a playful and charming energy that the polka-dot brings to an outfit and it’s a print that can easily be incorporated into your every day wardrobe. The size of the print plays an important roll when it come to body proportion. I often gravitate towards medium-size dots, as it suites my frame and stature. In general: the larger the print the bigger the statement. If it’s subtlety and understated you’re after, opt for a small print.
I love these wide-leg cropped pallazzo pants. The print, the micro-pleating and the overall style make them super versatile, comfortable and absolutely perfect for running errands or traveling. Plus they make a great statement! I paired the quirky pants with this box-cut black top and my black leather jacket; which adds a cool and chic element to this feminine look. I accessorized the look with my tan, patent leather Stuart Weitzman slides and my new Valentino Rockstud Clutch – which instantly elevates the ensemble!
For my 41st Birthday, I splurged on a gift for myself and invested in this Valentino Rockstud Clutch. It was such a great investment. In fact, each year I save up and buy myself a luxurious gift. Sometimes I treat myself to a trip or a new piece of furniture or art for the house; and others it’s a designer handbag. There’s something so satisfying about a new bag. It feels special and makes the simplest outfit look so extraordinary. I also love mixing high with low, and since the majority of my closet is thrifted, investing in a designer bag is my little reward for my hard work. AND it’s guilt-free shopping.
