Transitional Whites

So what does one wear when it should be summer but the temperatures are still low…

2018-05-22 10.07.33-2


White feels light and summery but with a duster and boots it is proof against a chill breeze. here I’m rockin transitional layers [for much longer than normal here in southern Spain].  A white blouse will see you right through the summer season, here and here with white light-weight cotton jeans here and here and here .  I’ve added another layer with a light duster here and here and I’ve donned my trusty Susanna boots again [love these boots ;D] here and here

I’m wearing my normal silver and turquoise hardware which has earned its place in my wardrobe time after time…here and here and here and here and a watch bought years ago from Fendi and worn practically every day since…ie in terms of Cost per Wear = absolutely FREE ;O!!!  here  PS when I bought mine it cost less than $200 which is what I call an investment; sadly though Mr F does not agree with me whole heartedly ;(

My ring was bought when we were on holiday in Paris around 12 years ago and can similarly be regarded ;D similar here and here and here The bracelet with the pink stones is pretty antique too, similar here

My philosophy is to know your own taste, and to buy things to keep and treasure.  I renew my wardrobe each season with a few new pieces but mostly recycle my outfits to create different looks.

Once again many thanks for stopping by.  I soo appreciate your loyalty and the lovely comments that you sometimes leave.  Bye for now, Sarah X

Boho meets Cow-gal

Two looks showing how to play with double denim for a boho meets cow-gal transitional style…




Here I’m wearing dark denim skinnies with the hem turned back (old) similar here and here with a denim shirt cum jacket, mine is from Anine Bing now out of stock but similar looks here or wear with a traditional denim jacket here or here


My boots are from my fav Zadig & Voltaire here and similar here the bag is from the same brand from 3 or 4 years ago, similar (cheaper) styles here and here and mega, eye-wateringly expensive but gorgeous one from Saint Laurent here



My hat was a sale bargain from The Kooples, similar, but from Zadig,  here cheaper version here the cotton boho style blouse is also old, very similar here and the necklace I made myself but I’ve linked two ready made similar pieces from Etsy here and here





For my second look (below) I’ve switched the blue top for a white lace camisole (old from Zadig ;P) here and here




I’ve added a red bandana and styled it in different ways (mine was from Zara Men last summer) similar here and a red Western style belt (very old ;O) similar in black here and this brand is cool here

It’s amazing what you can achieve with the addition of a $6 cotton bandana, no?! That’s it for now folks, thanks for dropping by, Sarah x

…so here we have the rest of this season’s new pieces…

So here we have the new season’s pink cropped jeans lined with turquoise so perfect for my season’s mix, exact here  and similar here

I’m wearing with last summer’s pretty blouse from Isabel Marant, similar ones that I would wear here and here and here and I’ll also wear with the patterned blouse that I wore earlier this week…see previous posts for product links.  My belt is here and I really want this bag ;P here


Just love the deets of the Zadig & Voltaire pants tho… note the skull next to the pocket and the sassy turquoise turn up ;O

I couldn’t resist these perfect cow-gal boots from Zadig either…but I will wear these forever!  Exact here and a more reasonable alternative here
