True Blue

















 NAVY CUT OUT DRESS: GLAMOROUS / *BUCKET BAG: C/O ZATCHELS / *BOSA SILVER WATCH: C/O FILLIPO LORETI / LACE UP SANDALS: ASOS / RINGS: PANDORA / 

This outfit has got to be one of my favourites in a while. It's one of the outfits I wore for my trip to York last week and I think it's perfect for that city chic kind of look. The navy in the dress is so classic and although it is a casual jersey dress, the simplicity of it gives the whole look a kind of elegant twist. The shoes are a pair I ordered from ASOS last week and I absolutely adore them, although I do have one problem - I cannot for the life of me get them to stay tied up my leg for more than half an hour! If anyone has any tips for getting them to stay on let me know in the comments - they drove me absolutely mad!

The beautiful bag was kindly sent to me by the guys over at Zatchels, a company which makes a huge variety of handmade leather bags, including this beauty. If this bag wasn't made for me I don't know what was. It is absolutely right up my street; it's the perfect size and the bucket style means it's modern but still classic due to the leather material. The colours and the material combined give it a real high end feel - you'd seriously think it was much more expensive!

The watch is also another classic piece and I found it matched this outfit absolutely perfectly. It's from Italian brand Fillipo Loreti, founded by two brothers who create watches inspired by different places in Italy, including Bosa, Venice and Rome. Their watches are truly beautiful and make a timeless accessory for any outfit and any style and for me watches are an accessory must-have. 

For me, this was the perfect outfit for exploring the city and I can see this dress fast becoming one of my most worn. Have you picked up any key pieces for your wardrobe recently? 

p.s. if you enter the code saltandchic at the checkout on filippoloreti.co.uk you can get 15% discount from their watches!

  21. I really like that dress. It's very interesting to look at, which I like in clothes. Also the red lip is great! You look lovely. I am obsessed with ASOS, though I havn't ordered shoes from them. I may have to.
