Dress – Topshop | Blazer – TFNC London | Leggings – River Island | Shoes – vintage | Earrings – Gifted | Cuff – vintage (from Mughal era)
Hello, hello, hello!
I am in a great mood this evening, and as is everyone from England! It’s because we’ve had such glorious weather throughout the whole of this weekend! It was lovely and bright with plenty of blue skies and sunshine. However, I will not dawdle on the weather, let me move on.
I am a sucker middle Eastern prints, they are beautiful, intricate and vivid. So it’s a no brainer really as to why I adore this dress! The print was eye-catching, the length was perfect for layering with leggings and it was an all-round perfect addiction to my pre-summer wardrobe. I wore matte black leggings underneath, to really make the print of the dress stand out individually. I decided to add a cultural twist, as I normally do, to this outfit, by wearing these stunning flats I picked up at a street market in Pakistan. They were handmade vintage and effectively inspired by the Mughal era; definitely my taste! And finally, I thought it would be interesting to contrast the vibrant colours of the dress with a muted pastel pink blazer. The edgy shoulder pads adds and edgy contour to the outfit and heightens the posture.
You know I always include lots of images in my posts, almost too many! This post is no exception and I’ve included some of my photography of fabulous rose bushes various other beautiful flowers. Recently, I’ve been glued to A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. My friend urged me to read this book, and her recommendation for this book follows suit. Mistry is probably one of the best contemporary writers of our time.
