What I plan to wear this year. Four of my key items and styles for 2017.
< QUICK SHOP THE STORY BELOW>
Happy New Year! While I can admit I slept through the countdown (I was in bed by 10pm), I am excited to welcome 2017 with open arms (if not eyes). This year I am feeling more positive and excited than I remember feeling in a long time. Hoping you are feeling the same.
To kick things off I thought I would share four key styles and items I will be wearing in 2017. Not a huge trend follower, these are things I love to wear which are essentials for a bohemian/ Parisian inspired style with little fuss. You can get around them on either a high or a low budget, but as always I suggest quality over quantity.
THE STATEMENT TOP
Be it a top with a statement sleeve or print, I will keep wearing more statement tops in 2017. Where I used to opt for the dress version of a design/ print, I now tend to look for the top, thinking it is more versatile to pair with a range of jeans, shorts, pants or skirts. Though for the most part the rest of my look is generally pretty simple, the statement top keeps things interesting. Worn under a neutral blazer, trench, moto jacket or bomber, I love to offer that peek of a statement in any look.

THE MOM JEAN
The specific way that I opt to wear a mom jean style is with a top tucked in to accentuate the waist. I also prefer a cropped hem to feature an interesting shoe.
WEARING: GRANA SILK BOMBER, GRANA SILK CAMI, GRANA MOM JEAN, ISABEL MARANT BELT, HERMES SUEDE HEELS (SIMILAR HERE)
THE ROUND GLASSES
There is just something so carefree about round glasses which I love. Perhaps because I associate them with iconic music legends? Either way, I have been thinking my next eyewear glasses should also be round frames.

THE BOMBER JACKET
A few posts back I talked about how I had not really shared one of my favourite bomber jackets on the blog much, so here it is. Actually, there are two in this post alone! As I am not a huge trend follower, I wear these all the time anyway, but I must admit I do appreciate when they pop up.
