This week I got to style two Givenchy pieces (the shoes and the bag) for SSENSE which I chose to put with one of my favourite pairs of Rag & Bone jeans; their skinnies in Oil Stain. As the bag gave me a sailor inspired vibe, but the shoes kept it feminine, I went down the route of mixing wood, browns, creams and stripes to really add to the effect. This outfit does remind me of being on board a yacht so I added the sunglasses to finish it off.
The items in this outfit are the Givenchy Black Medium Antigona Tote, the Givenchy Black Corrine Strap Wedges, a pair of Rag & Bone Skinny jeans in Oil Stain, a Helmut Lang White Arid Crepe Sweater, some Elizabeth & James Biscayne Sunglasses, a Marc by Marc Jacobs Brown Wooden Bolt Bangle and a Proenza Schouler Brown Braided Waist Belt.
I definitely have fun styling the different products for you all to see. I like being able to pick different styles and different outfits, so there is something for everyone. I really love the Givenchy wedges though, they are definitely a statement shoe! What do you all think of the bag? Does it give you that sailor vibe too? I can definitely see it working with a pair of boat shoes, cuffed chinos and a casual blazer too!

For my second styling post, I got to create an outfit with DL1961′s Stella shorts in Flash wash and I had so much fun with it! I love the bright red of these with the subtle tie-dye print here and there. Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad was actually spotted wearing these shorts during the Coachella Festival last week, so since it’s festival season, I decided to go down that route with my styling.
For this outfit, I chose a Theysken’s Theory Orange Franky Bruna Blouse, a pair of ASH Bowie wedge sneakers in Stone, a Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch bag in Nude and then I accessorized it with a Samanca Jewelry Dawn Necklace in Tan, a Soixante Neuf Crackle Horn Necklace in Turquoise, a Burkman Bros Two Color Black/Tan Knotted Bracelet and a Burkman Bros Bark Bracelet with Beads.
What I love about this outfit is it’s so bright and fun. I adore the orange and yellow tones of the shirt and combined with the red shorts, it really stands out. I chose a turquoise necklace because it pops so much against the orange, it’s a complete contrast and looks cute, layered with the other tan coloured necklace it adds depth.
I chose the Ash sneakers for comfort and because they have a hidden heel which will give you height, plus the fact I am obsessed with these, but unfortunately they sold out in my size everywhere. The bracelets just add some flare to the wrists and the nude bag, I think it ties the colours together nicely. What do you think of the look?
