Accessories can always make & break an outfit. While I previously praised the weather for its beautiful rays, I had to eat my words when the barbeque was struggling to stay alight through the wind & random drizzle. Welcome to the real British summertime!
Sean luckily had his trusty umbrella on hand, which proved a valuable accessory, whilst also adding a Gentlemanly vibe to his casual military/rockers inspired look.
A bag is key for a lady and when university is in full swing, a fair amount of luggage is needed. When wearing indigo jeans & navy tones, stick to brown rather than balck accessories to bring the vibrancy of the colours out. Handmade accessories add that extra edge, and while I usually prefer to create my own, I couldn't resist this dark tone of tanned leather which I spotted while spending a summer on a Greek island. I just wish I was there right now!...
