As a gal with vintage and retro styling on the brain 24/7, Miss Patina is a brand whose pieces take up a large percentage of my wardrobe. My latest two additions, this daisy adorned blouse and high-waisted pastel blue skirt, say summer is here more than any other outfit I own – I know I’m not the only british belle jumping for joy at being able to wear summer styles at last!
Of course, the only way to accessorise such a weather-optimistic outfit is with the most outrageously bright bag you can find (yes cambridge satchel, I’m lookin’ at you), a co-ordinating silk scarf (this beauty being aptly named ‘Woodstock’ from Anna Lou of London), the perfect block heel sandals, some floral earrings and two pairs of sunglasses, because, well, I couldn’t make up my mind which went better…talk about first world problems! But seriously, it’s not just me that does that, right?
Now that my ghostly pale skin is getting some sun after so long, I’ve got a long list of ‘necessary‘ items to lay my hands on. For one thing, ARK and their amazing collection of co-ords. Go and have a peek and tell me I’m wrong. It’s a godsend that I no longer live in a city with an ARK store because quite frankly I would have spent every penny I have and would be left 40+ sets… I mean, even for me, 40+ co-ord sets is a bit OTT 😉
