Who doesn't love a bit of The Doors?!
I was literally singing Blue Sunday all day yesterday so, I felt it was appropos to pay homage with this post - my first real stab at an outfit/style post. Go easy on me!
The occasion? An early Sunday lunch to celebrate my grandaunt's 80th birthday.
A few people have asked me about this bag on Twitter recently so, here's a closer look. It's the mini Pashli from 3.1 Philip Lim in black leather with gold hardware and, honestly, one of the better "big" purchases I have made. It's casual enough to work day-to-day but, is equally good enough quality to use as a more dressy piece. Yes, it is expensive for a small bag but, on a cost per wear basis, it's well worth the save/splurge. I got mine on sale last year for around half price but, you can currently find similar here, here or here and, if you pay in dollars, you should save a fair bit on it!
The dress is a waist-cinching cobalt number from Topshop about two years ago so, I have linked some similar styles below. The leather/suede mix jacket is a Mango steal that is currently on sale and my boots are these Asos ones that I dedicated a whole post to. Sunglasses are Ray-Ban Aviators.
