MONO-c

HATS! An accessory I've admired on everyone else but I just didn't think it was something I could pull off. I tried to get into it, God knows I tried, but I have a head of quite an astonishing circumference so the ones in all the high street stores were all no-fits! :(

But my good friend Ola wore this hat to work and immediately I knew I had to have it!

You can tell I'm excited right?!
I'm not actually entirely sure where the hat is from (as I asked Ola to get it for me) but rest assured, details will follow!

SELF-MADE MULE

So I actually wore this outfit minus the mules to work with my roshe's but the sheer excitement of actually finding these in my size in the sale made me want to style them straight away. And now I explain what I mean by 'self-made mule': a mule loosely translated is a hybrid which is how I view my style, a constant melange.

Hope ya'al have had an awesome start to the week :)

NEW (LOOK)

My recent purchase is a double-whammy from New Look. 

New Look Black Textured Leather-Look Backpack Tan Block Heel Mules
Bag - £17.99 (also available in blue)
Mules - £11

I've been looking for the perfect little day bag for a while now. I'm a fan of super huge bags which are always 90% empty but I realise this isn't practical for every one of my outings. A shoulder strap is always an essential feature; I love my bags right now to hang low. This small but sophisticated bag ended my long, long search. Honestly, it's the perfect size too and I love the fact it has numerous compartments. The exterior is gorgeous too; the textured croc effect makes it stand apart from any of the other bags I've seen in the shops right now.

AND ... say HEY to my new mules!! When these first came out I really didn't picture myself wearing them but I loved them when I saw others styling it. I had me eyes on these particular ones for a while now, especially for the fact that weren't black - I'm desperately trying to add colour to my footwear collection - and are a perfect tan colour. So when they went in the sale and dropped to £11 they were a must!

Knowing me, I've already styled them; outfit post early next week ... that's a promise!

Hope you had an awesome and relaxing weekend,
