Styling: The Yellow Clutch Bag

Dress PersunMall / Clutch Bag* Baleeblu / Shoes Freed Of London / Cardigan F&F

After a stormy week, the weather is somewhat tolerable enough to venture out for a brief meet-up with some friends, but with the wind still blowing strong, it was less than desirable for taking outfit photos. Yes, Wind, I did want a face full of hair... how did you know! 

I can't begin to tell you and admit to you how much I've been wearing this black cardigan from F&F when I'm at home. I should probably put it in the wash right now! Ever since I bought it a couple of months ago, it has been on my back non-stop! Although it's not yet tatty, it did used to be a lot fluffier and chunky, but all the texture has been flattened from the constant wear. I spotted a similar one in Primark and I think I'll buy it in white next time I pop in.

Since I've become so attached to my cardi, and the appearance of it looking a bit worse for wear, I decided to replace my usual black satchel with a fancy yellow clutch bag. A statement piece of accessory to brighten the outfit up and I wore my ballet flats so it didn't feel too dressy. Even though I ended up taking my satchel with me and leaving it in the car - just incased I needed a bigger bag - I actually didn't need much for where I was going today. The colour of the clutch bag matches my dress ever so subtly. The loose fit dress is from PersunMall and it's quite a straight-up-and-down, boxy kind of shape. It is navy blue with scattered yellow dots and I think the colour of clutch bag ties in well with the outfit. It just makes the outfit more interesting and I'd rather carry a bright accessory than match it with a navy one, it would have been too matchy-matchy!

  44. You look adorable! Ha, now I know I'm not alone when it comes to over wearing stuff. For me it's definitely stuff that I wear around the house, A LOT, especially with how freezing it's been in my state! We've been in the negatives so I've been wearing my hoodie that I always wear. In my defense, I only have one so this is the only one I really have to wear. Guess I should get another one, aha. I love the dress, it's so adorable and looks so cute with the cardigan. I also really, really love that clutch! It pops perfectly with your dress and it's so sunny and bright. It almost made me forget the cold scenery behind you, aha. I need a clutch like that, I've been looking around for a clutch so I can just have less crap to carry but still be able to fit some essentials. Anyways, lovely outfit as always! :)

  45. Wind and outfit pictures definitely don't mix well! I usually just let my hair do whatever even if I look ridiculous. As long as it's not in my mouth it's all good.
    but anyway you look so cute in this dress. I love the way your yellow bag looks with the navy blue dress. That cardigan looks so nice and cozy too. I hate when well-loved clothes start looking well-loved if you know what I mean. I don't think this one looks too worn out though. Hopefully you'll find another one to buy soon!

  46. you look so cute! I love your dress and how you styled it with that coat :)
