I’ve made no secret of my love of 90’s cult movie Clueless and the impact it has had on my sense of style. I’ve even used the movie for outfit inspo in a previous post. I adore cute, preppy outfits and live in jeans and heels for work (alternating between shirt and blazer combo’s). Styling bold and/ or multiple colours can sometimes be challenging as it’s all too easy to look as though you’ve tried way too hard. A trick I use when wearing bright colours is to keep the overall look simple to allow the colour itself to make the statement.

Now that Spring is finally here, we can ditch the dark, winter palette and breakout more colourful hues. Working in fashion full time and blogging can sometimes, unknowingly, influence us to the point where we lose touch with our individual style. It’s so easy to get swept away in what’s currently trending and before you know it you’re lost in a sea of all white, minimal everything with marble/ rose gold accents with no lifeboat. I try not to succumb to trends and operate on the modus that if everyone else has it, I don’t want it. Of course there will be exceptions to this rule (Chanel bags being the ultimate exception!) – but for the most part, I try to seek out new brands and new places to shop (which you will start to see a lot more of on this blog).

Most importantly though, I try to retain my own sense of style which is why I love this outfit as it sums up my individual style perfectly; Classic with a fun twist – just like these Sergio Rossi wedges! I have slowly but surely been growing a collection of Sergio Rossi footwear over the years. Perhaps not as well known as Louboutin, Webster or Choo yet definitely holds their own against such noted designers. I’m a sucker for Italian made footwear and so pleased to have come across these beautiful wedges which are funky yet functional and oh so comfortable.

Can’t wait for summer to arrive so that I can really go to town in these bad boys.
