I went to the hairdressers this week and I decided to get a new haircut with the coming of the New Year.
Some length was cut off and the bob is all one length rather than concave. A wispy fringe with a slight angle has been cut in so its cute but not going to be too hot in summer.
I'm really happy with how it looks.
I spent a bit of time on the weekend making some coordinates with Mystic Chiffon OP from Alice and the Pirates and Kuma Kumya's Sweet Chocolate - high-waist JSK from Baby the Stars Shine Bright.
I used the bow off my navy beret and wore some open-toe shoes from a formal wear brand called Coast.
Then, I added a feather bolero in the same colour from the same brand. I really like the pairing of navy and this soft-grey colour.
I also enjoyed trying a couple of coordinates with Kuma Kumya's Sweet Chocolate.
I'm really loving combinations of berets and other accessories such as barrettes and headbands at the moment. I paired my Baby the Stars Shine Bright beret with the waist bow from the JSK. I have also realised that cardigans go well with high-waist items. I'm wearing a very versatile cardigan from Metamorphose in the above outfit.
I decided to do something a little different and pair Kumya Kuma's Sweet Chocolate with a Navy high collar chiffon blouse from Angelic Pretty and some blue tights from Alice and the Pirates. I loved being able to change the style of this piece using accessories and supporting pieces. I still think this coordinate needs work but I enjoyed doing some experimenting with this outfit.
If you've been following me on Instagram you would have seen that I have been doing quite a lot of coordinating practice.
I have realised how difficult it is to create a summer coordinate with my current wardrobe and hope to work on improving that after April.
In the meantime, it's practice, practice, practice.
Until next time...
