Blogger Diary. Bluesfest Day 1.

After much deliberation, Kia and I have finally decided what we are wearing to Blues today!

Kia has gone for a more understated look with her Insight Dress, Brixton Hat and Sole Society Sandals. We are seeing a lot of floral at the moment, so Kia tried to at least steer clear of the rusts and brown colour schemes and toned it up a bit with a blue and purple floral dress. These Sole Society Sandals which are new to SurfStitch, pump the outfit up as she tries to avoid thongs at this year’s Bluesfest. The Brixton hat compliments the Sandals and ensures that her hair is kept tame in what looks to be a wet afternoon at Blues!

I, on the other hand, have opted for shorts, army boots and a flanno. We all know that Flannos are back in and am loving the colour scheme that insight have used here. I have decided to compliment my shirt with Neuw shorts, a MinkPink over the shoulder bag and a pair of Zanerobe Sunnies. Simple outfit yes, but super practical and cute. Remember ladies, it gets cold at Blues in the evenings, so bring some extra layers to pop on after the sun sets!

What will you be wearing to Blues?

Must-Tote Bags Of The Season!

I love a great bag! And not just any bag—I’m looking for the kind that really makes a statement and adds personality and wow factor to your look. When it comes to cute bags, I always turn to my favorite street style sites to show me what all the trendsetters are lugging around fashion week (mainly my favorite Alexa Chung). This season, it looks like Mullberry-esque totes, punches of red, men-inspired clutches, and oversized shoulder bags are really making their mark!

Notes:
The Men’s-Inspired Briefcase Bag: Like the kind your dad takes to work—only cuter!
The Oversized Shoulder Bag: If you carry your closet in your bag, this option is for you!
The Handheld Cross Body: Who doesn’t love a bag with flexibility?
The Bright Mini Bag! Of course a pop of bright red will do wonders for your look! I love the color on mini bags, it’s a great contrast!

Hands Free Fashion: My Favorite Crossbody Bags

Plain and simple: What you tote your everyday necessities in should be as cute and chic as the rest of your outfit. I’ve mentioned clutches before as easy grab bags to instantly up your trend factor, but what does one reach for when it comes time to look cute while running errands, or do something that needs all your concentration …like holding grocery bags or balancing a drink in each hand? My answer is the crossbody bag. They’re cute, effortless, and offer a little bit of vintage flare thanks to fun details like contrast stitching, buckles, and fun printed fabrics.
