october inspiration

Monday, October 03, 2011

I can't believe it's October already! At the moment (well, actually for a while now), Bonnie Barton's blog, Flashes of Style has been a huge inspiration. I just love her outfits. Effortless perfection is the only way to describe her style. The above picture is one of my favourites. I love the way she cleverly mixed different textures to create a not-to-girly-but-still-feminine outfit. 

This Arabella Ramsay collection is so precious. Mixed patterns, polka dots, denim and mismatched knits are the way to go. The collection you would want to take credit for. 

Satchel bags! These brightly coloured accessories are the perfect solution to sprucing up a plain outfit. I love the blue one, it would go perfectly with a simple white sun dress.

Sorry for the initial absence, I have been busily getting ready for school again and I just got back from an intense ballet class and every morsel of strength left in my body has disappeared. I'm pretty sure I did about a trillion chaines across the studio and all I need now is a bubble bath, my Anne of Green Gables novel and a good night sleep! Happy Monday!

I think Bonnie is fantastic and wonderful. Her combination skills keep inspiring me! And I'm so jealous of her beautiful long hair, haha

Maria said...

Yes, yes! Bonnie is wonderful! I'm glad you all enjoyed this dose of inspiration. Unfortunately, I have no idea where those bags came from. It's just another gorgeous picture from weheartit. If any of you do happen to find out where I can buy one, I would be very happy!
