Wednesday Wishes – Smart Casual

July 31, 2013


Happy Wednesday y’all! Halfway to the weekend, I can almost smell it. I know it’s been a while, but here I am with a new episode of Wednesday Wishes! The theme this time is Smart Casual.

I bought these boyfriend jeans (5) a couple of months ago and love them. They’re perfect for lazing around in when I just can’t seem to find the energy to make an effort – I particularly like them with my pink polka dot faux-Converse! – but I’ve been on the hunt for some stilettos or dazzling shoes to pair them with for a night out. One of my biggest style inspirations is Alexis at Brighton Style Memos, who totally rocks this look.

I couldn’t decide which pair of shoes to go with, so I’m just going to say both of them. I would never buy shoes without trying them on first, but these two definitely made my heart skip a beat. I love the simple design of these stilettos from Zara (6) and I’m intrigued by these Carvela at Kurt Geiger shoes (4). A friend has a pair from the same collection (and, may I add, a much nicer pair – but you can’t buy the same shoes as your friend, right?) and they are so comfortable! If I’m wearing casual trousers I need to smarten it up, and this top from Cos is perfect (1). Simple, but with great detail. This would work so well with simple black trousers, too – or printed trousers. So basically it’s an investment piece. And then we come onto the final dish of the day – accessories. A friend set up Rah and Rah with her sister and father, and they make the most wonderful jewellery. One day I will ask them to make something just for me, but for now I am dreaming of these beautiful pieces. (2,3)

So there are my Wednesday Wishes! Anything catch your eye?

      You definitely need to check out Rah and Rah – especially the way they source their materials.

    Oooh nice! I love number 4 shoes but it all looks great together. After getting paid today I don’t think I’m gonna have much money left!

      #4 shoes seem to be the most popular so far! I’m in saving mode for holidays otherwise I would be splashing the cash, too!

    Happy Wednesday! I’m off today so it’s extra-sweet. Supremely loving the looks of those relaxed boyfriend jeans; I need a pair of easy-to-wear jeans that I can just throw on. I’m far too guilty of dressing down more than I should.

      Ooh I love mid-week days off! Hope you had a great day. I go through phases of either dressing up all the time or slobbing about for days (weeks) on end!

      They’re stilettos so maybe not the best for work! Although I do occasionally like wearing heels to work.

    I rarely have the occasion to wear stilettos, but those Zara heels are pretty tempting! Love your style, lady.

      Thanks darling! I’m thinking maybe both shoes, as the Zara ones are quite cheap…
