This is an Alexa Chung/vintage inspired look, which adds a romantic edge to otherwise somewhat boring essentials.
Add a pair of lace socks, or thigh-high socks to give you outfit not only a bit of sex-appeal, but also elegant-chick (never though I'd use those two words in the same sentence, but there you go).
Basque cardigan, tucked into a Bebe skirt. Matched with a vintage Chanel handbag, vintage heels and a pair of thigh-high silk socks, for a bit of va-va-voomph. Finished off with a pair of vintage earrings, 'love' ring from Diva, and a Farrah Felt Floppy Hat from Dotti (this hat is honestly one of the most used items in my wardrobe at the moment. With the shy bursts of sun Autumn has been blessing us with, I just can't get enough of it! Skin protection and elegance all in one, what more could you ask for?)
Try to keep makeup neutral, and don't forget the most important thing before you head outdoors - sunscreen. This baby not only protects you against wrinkles, but more importantly harmful cancer-causing UVA rays. After all, studies show we only need 10 minutes of sunshine a day!
And although this phrase has as much cheese as a cheese-platter, I'll end this with one phrase that's always touched me, "Happiness is a mood, a condition, not a destination. It's like being tired or hungry, it's not permanent." So it's only healthy to feel broken and sad once in a while, afterall, what is happiness if we never know what sadness is? Aren't we just ordinary people, who don't know which way to go? So let's just take things slow for now.
