It’s been a good five years since I first saw the Celine trio casually draped over the shoulder of one of the French fashion elite, and my preoccupation with the pochette-style bag hasn’t faded a drop since. While the classic black (or navy – !) is still hands down my first choice – and judging by the waiting list, everyone else’s too! – I’m looking forward to pulling out my powder blue version for the warmer months. It’s true what they say… sweet dreams really are made of Celine…
So last night I was thinking about boyfriend jeans – or… my complete lack there of – after stumbling across this snap that I took more than five months ago now. Worn with a loose blouse, grain leather chelsea boots, and a devil may care attitude.
I’m currently listening to the pitter patter of the Springtime rain tapping against my window, which seems like the perfect excuse to curl up in bed a little early (rum and coke in hand) while searching for the one. I’m not quite aiming to look as nonchalant as this model just-off-the-runway, but I feel like a pair of boyfriend denim (like this tomboy jean from Nobody Denim) would get me pretty darn close.
I love a simple outfit as much as the next girl, as long as it’s done right. A bold watch, a strappy pair of heels, and the penultimate cross body bag; need I say more?
Add funky sunglasses, a statement necklace, wide brimmed fedora and throw a dress over a pair of seventies inspired power trousers. Now that, is how you accessorise like a boss…
Eleanor Pendleton of Gritty Pretty, MBFWA day one
I’m not normally one for trends (and this is definitely not the first time I’ve said that…), but I can’t help but love Eleanor in this 70s inspired look, YSL mini-bag and all.
