I completed the look with this umbrella broach that I was given on my last day at work. I thought it was perfect given the current weather – storms left, right and centre! Lastly, I took advantage of the Bait Christmas sale and treated myself to three pairs of fabulous shoes including these Ione Mint Heels, these are the first I’ve worn. They are so beautiful I am terrified of scratching them! I was a little worried about the sizing and I could have probably done with going down a half size, but because of the strap it doesn’t cause too much of a problem. I now want all the Bait shoes! Bait, if you are listening: please find a UK outlet so I don’t have to pay such an embarrassing amount on postage and customs fees! Anyway, this pair are cute, striking and comfortable – what more could you ask for? I’d happily take them in every colour. I do kind of wish I’d thought more about what these go with, a black and white pair might have been more practical with my wardrobe, but I just fell in love with this colour.
So there you have it, what do you think to the modern sweater girl look?
P.S Incase you somehow don’t know Oxfam (always a favourite of mine for hunting out books and vintage gems) have a pretty great online store. They are currently on the hunt for a face of various decades and are asking bloggers to choose on outfit to represent a decade. I’m choosing this outfit for the 1950’s as this is when this look started to gain popularity. It’s very unlikely I’ll win but I love the opportunity to draw attention to a great charity. There is something so satisfying about a charity shop rummage, and highly recommend their online store if you can’t make it into one of their physical ones!
