Mix Matched Patterns

June 5, 2016

Sometimes, I just throw a bit of a mix matched outfit together and hope for the best. When I was in Monaco, I was wanting a practical outfit with sensible shoes, a hat to shield my head from the sun and a jacket in case it was slightly cool. I’ve spoken about it a million times but the weather in France was so unpredictable. I was sunbathing on the beach one minute and dark storm clouds loomed over the next.

These baby pink pumps from Rocket Dog were my ultimate saviours whilst in France, they were perfect for wandering about in and just so unbelievably comfortable. If you’re like me and have been lusting after a pair of the Dior So Real Sunglasses, I have found the answer! I bought these Missguided ones for only £10 and they really have been attracting some attention! One of my biggest bargains this Summer has been this big sun hat which I thought would be a chic accessory for the French Riveria. It was a mega steal at £3 from good ol’ Primark!

Trainers* – Rocket Dog

Hat – Primark (Similar here)

Sunglasses – Missguided

Bag – Primark

I know this outfit is a little mix matched with all the patterns and colours but sometimes comfort and practicality are key. I also need to mention that we shot these photo’s in an area of Monte Carlo near the casino called the Pavillions. It was such a unique area with designer shops weaving through the park in futuristic style buildings. They reminded me of Epcot at Walt Disney World! It might also be the first place that I have run into another blogger shooting outfits at the same time. What a coincidence!
