Popsicle//Suede


Tee, skirt & shoes: All ASOS
Scarf: Charlotte Simone

What (aside from extra chocolate mars bars and The Walking Dead every Monday evening) am I totally obsessed with at the moment? 
ALL THINGS SUEDE!
Oh, oh, and my POPSICLE. 

The 1970s: a time period most fashionistas would rather forget. Bell bottoms, mullets and neon: it was a decade of some of the worst trends in British history. But this season numerous designers surprisingly took inspiration from the fun-loving hippies of the '70s. And thank God they did. Along with the bad, the 1970s also brought a hella' lotta' guuuuurrrd. Suede, (reasonable sized) flares and denim galore: I'm all over it like an ugly rash. 

This pink skirt from ASOS provides a fun spin to the suede trend. Its midi length is given a sultry edge with its high rising split and silver buckled belt. It would work just as well with a pair of open toed dainty sandals as it would with some cute socks and brogues. The luxe feel and smell of real suede is also pretty fantastic; another reason why I adore this bubblegum-shaded piece. 

I've combined it with my super cute 'I love you a latte' tee which Kirstie surprised me with (literally the kindest creature alive she is) and my ASOS tie up chunky platforms which everyone seems to be going mad over online! And last but not least, of course, is my Charlotte Simone popsicle scarf. It's been keeping me snuggly and warm since it was introduced into my wardrobe, and adds a touch of style to every ensemble I put together. I'm in a pretty monogamous relationship with my popsicle: no other scarf even comes close

What do you like about the 70s trend? Do you like any other designs from Charlotte Simone?

PS. I interviewed the designer- read it here! Thanks to the lovely ladies at 5th House for organising this for me :)

  19. Florals would definitely be my favorite thing about the 70s. There's just something so lax about flower power and I quite like how flattering bell bottoms are. I love the casual vs smart juxtaposition you have going on in this outfit and the pink is just the perfect shade that it isn't overpowering and shows off the suede texture.
