The Shoe Girl Styles It: Easter Special
By way of an apology for my non existent blogging this week, I have a bumper edition of TSGSI. Whoop! I've been terribly down in the dumps recently, which really isn't like me. Blogging and interacting with people was the last thing I felt like doing, so I took the time and shut myself off for a few days. My nephews were staying overnight this weekend, so it was all Batman, Lego and Cluedo and today I was glad to be scoping out high heels and fancy dresses! All my outfits are loosely Easter themed, pretty florals and pastels and the like. In order not to confuse things, I'll do one at a time.
Starting with these Topshop 'Rebecca' heels £49. Last season saw the same style (called "Rabbit") and they've been so popular they've continued with them for Spring in new colours. These are white and for the outfit I also looked to another old favourite, the Topshop grid skirt. Remember I styled it in grey last year? Well this is a blue version and I paired it with this Dorothy Perkins bunny T, because...well it's EASTER! Bunnies! I quite like the contrast with the horizontal stripes and grid print. I added a silly but brilliant, bunny hairband from Claire's along with this adorable fluffy phone sleeve and a pink glitter handbag. What do you think of this outfit?
Dorothy Perkins novelty bunny t-shirt £14, Topshop grid midi skirt £55, Pink glitter handbag £14.99, Claire's bunny headband £5 and plush bunny phone sock £4.50.
My second pair of shoes, are Irregular Choice 'Mrs Lower' £90. Which are actually considered part of the IC bridal collection, but as with all of that range, they work beyond weddings. I was aiming for a lovely summery day, perfect for a picnic in this stunning Dickins & Jones 50's style floral dress. All that was needed was a straw hat and basket bag, oh and a cute, fluffy bunny to pop inside and keep with our theme! What do you think of this one?
Dickins & Jones sunflower dress £59, Tantra straw and white lace bag £34, Claire's floppy bow hat £20 and Ty Beanie Babies 'Creampuff The Bunny' £7.
My final look is a little more casual with these pale pink ASOS 'Himalayas' sandals £38. I actually love the heart print version of these platforms even more, but pastel was required for this look. There's a rule (that I fabricated two minutes ago) that you can't wear black at Easter. This rainbow furry cape will keep you cosy if you weren't experiencing (20!!) the warm temperatures we were today. Slipped underneath are some pale wash jeans (under a tenner btw!) and this vintage Care Bears t-shirt from Mr Gugu & Miss Go. I finished the look with some glitter bunny glasses. How much fun could you have in this outfit?
ASOS faux fur rainbow cape £65, Mr Gugu & Miss Go vintage Care Bears t-shirt £24.99, Select light wash Beth skinny jeans £9.99 and Claire's glitter bunny glasses £6.
I hope you've had a good time over Easter, whether you were off work or not. I'm sorry for the lack of posts this week and apologies for the late posting tonight. Hopefully normal service resumed next week. I had loads of fun making these outfits, so I hope you enjoyed them too.
