Double denim - with a touch of sparkle from Zara (and Boden) and hot pink from Alice's Wonders

 

After my terrible admission yesterday, today I had to wear something different. Not too different of course, we're still talking jeans but I put them with a Breton top, a denim top from GAP (£29.95) which I bought a couple of weeks ago and a fabulous bright pink solitaire necklace from Alice's Wonders (£8). The silver shoes were from Zara a few seasons ago now.
 

I'm sure that I will get a huge amount of wear out of this top. It provides a great backdrop to a statement necklace and it's such a versatile top to wear with casual, non-denim, trousers - or jeans too, if you don't mind a bit of the old "DD" going on.

Here's a closer shot of the lovely necklace which arrived out of the blue from Cathy, who runs Alice's Wonders.


For anyone after a flat glittery sandal for the summer, these Serrana sandals by Boden (£59) could be a perfect match. I have a pair on the way and I can see them being hugely versatile with jeans, khakis plus dresses and skirts. The reviews say that they come up narrow so for anyone who finds that lots of sandals are too wide, these may be worth investigating. They come in lots of colours so if looking like a Christmas tree isn't your thing, don't fret!


When I was looking at Cathy's site, this pink crystal necklace Alice's Wonders (£13) leapt out at me so I just thought that I would share it with you - it's just so lovely!

    1. Hi Sian - Breton stripes and something pink or neon make up my "first aid kit" of clothes. Silver sparkles too. I figure it you mix those up you're not going to go far wrong! Hope that you find the top.

  3. I love love love how you have styled this look!!! (Bit sad really, aren't I, to get so excited at 720am about clothes!) I am off to Gap pronto. And to the Alice Wonders website. Can't do narrow shoes so will have to give the sandals a miss. Btw where are your jeans from - they look fab.

    1. Carol - if you can get excited at 7.20am about clothes, you're a girl after my own heart! The jeans are about 5 years old, GAP outlet, keep trying to marginalise them but it doesn't seem to be working!
