Different things mean different things to different people. Shoes mean more to me than they might do to you, I don’t know for sure. But I do know that I love these new Isabel Marant Jaeryn sandals I bought in the Matches Fashion Sale so much, that I almost can’t wear them, but want to study them like a piece of modern art, appreciate them for all their glory and beauty in construction. I say almost because they look far too good on my feet for them to stay sitting on my shoe shelves.
Whatever the case, these sandals are most definitely one of my most favourite pieces of wearable art I own.
About a year ago, I discovered non-wired bras. A year ago. For years, almost longer than I can remember, I’ve been wearing underwear that’s been uncomfortable and ugly. Not ugly to look at, but ugly to wear. It literally never dawned on me that there was an alternative and I have no idea why. The moment I tried on a wire-free bra, it was like someone had told me I could fly/speak 9 languages/could move to California tomorrow. I was elated. No longer did I feel like my rib-cage had a padlock attached to it. And this is going to sound quite strange, but when someone accidentally knocks your boob area with their elbow, you feel nothing, not that I want to be groped by complete strangers, because that would be pretty weird, but padding adds a barrier and makes you feel nothing. No movement at all. Your boobs just sit there behind the padding – well, maybe thats just mine. Or maybe this just proves I’ve been wearing completely the wrong underwear. Its not natural and it isn’t for me. I should also mention I’m not gifted in this area, I have enough, but I do also realise that non-structured underwear isn’t ideal for the more well endowed. So I’ve moved on to a world where boobies move under a delicate layer of lace and they’re there in all their glory to be nudged on the underground/train/bus/aeroplane and I’m pretty happy about that, no matter how weird that sounds.
I don’t have a preference between silver and gold – I love them equally for the same reasons. Silver looks beautiful on tanned, summer skin, and so does delicate gold. On my left hand, my rings are white gold, therefore look silver. On my right, I’m wearing some delicate gold rings from Ale Y Ole, a new Spanish discovery in jewellery. On my left wrist, I’m wearing a Silver Daniella Draper bracelet with a Gold Shore Projects Abersoch Watch with Gold Mesh Strap.
However, if I was going out, I would probably wear either gold or silver, not both. And if I was going out, I would wear any one of these beautiful cuffs I’ve edited above for this post. All affordable, all beautiful.

I didn’t intentionally get dressed the other morning and decide all I wanted to wear was Topshop head to toe, however, with such affordable pieces, I’d be surprised if any girls wardrobe in this country (and around the world, for that matter) didn’t have anything from Topshop in it.
This is an easy, almost too easy, summer outfit for anyone to wear – its so simple, even I managed it.
