Don't you just love an outfit like this? A laid-back, easy to wear, casual chic kind of outfit. This is usually the kind of thing I wear on a day to day basis; some skinnies, comfy top and a high-end bag for a little bit of a twist. However, although the idea of this outfit is pretty simple with it being a shirt and jeans, it is the accessories that really strike that perfect balance between "everyday" and "luxury".
The first thing I'll mention is the jewellery. I love a bit of bling to jazz up an everyday outfit and this ring from Gemporia is an absolute beauty. The ring itself is sterling silver and it has Zambezia Morganite and White Topaz, creating an absolutely stunning piece of jewellery that looks and feels so expensive but, amazingly, it comes in at £42.99 on Gemporia and has an estimated retail value of £132. That's because Gemporia aims to bring beautiful pieces of jewellery with genuine gemstones at a price that doesn't break the bank and as the brand works closely with charities to ensure it's work is ethical, it really is the place to go if you're looking for a special piece of jewellery.
The beauty of pieces like this ring is that they can be worn how you want. I like to get as much wear out of my jewellery as possible so will wear this as an everyday ring but equally, it could be kept for special occasions to glam up an evening outfit. It's so beautiful it could even be an engagement ring!
I've always had a thing for a pair of statement shoes and this pair from ASOS fit the bill perfectly. The metallic silver does all the talking and they're the style of shoe that will take you through the whole year. I got this pair of beauties from Octer, a new online store that lets you shop all of your favourite brands in one place. Octer is the new sister of the app Shareight and instead of trawling through hundreds of different websites looking for the specific item you have in mind, you can simply use the filters and categories on Octer to bring up all of the items that fit the bill on one page. Click on the item and it'll take you straight to the item page on that website, making online shopping so much quicker and easier when you know what you want.
