MY MAY INSTAGRAM OUTFITS
Now that the sun has been making more of a regular appearance here in London I’ve felt so inspired to put together some super cute outfits! Since the weather here is usually grey, wet and dull, as soon as Spring rolls around I get so excited to create some fun outfit combos. So many of you guys have commented on my Insta posts asking where things are from, so I thought it would be a good idea to create a post to show you exactly where everything is from (and if it’s sold out, I can show you where you can find something similar).
If you’re up to date with my Maystée videos you’ll know that the other week I ventured outside of London to spend a day exploring the English countryside. So many of you guys commented on the outfit that I wore that day so I thought that I’d include it in this post. You might have noticed that I’ve been wearing these tailored culottes to death recently because they literally go with EVERYTHING! Although the weather here in the UK has been glorious, I’m of the opinion that it’s still not *quite* warm enough to rock a pair of cute shorts or a denim mini without spending the entire day shivering. These culottes are perfect because they’re lightweight and roomy enough to keep me cool but still give my bottom half coverage that I need. The trench coat that I had on in this pic is sold out but this khaki trench from Mango is pretty much the same (I LOVE IT!). Trenches are my go-to kinda coat to wear during Spring time here in the UK; they’re super easy to throw on and feel soooo comfortable but are tailored enough to make an outfit look slightly more put together.
A couple of weeks back I headed over to South Kensington to meet Amelia for brunch and since the sun was shining I decided to pop on something a little more summery. Before Aslan and I headed to Japan I picked up these beautiful mint green heeled mules from Mango (unfortunately they’re sold out but I found > these ones < which are just as gorgeous!) and I LOVE them! I’m usually such a sneakers kinda girl (don’t get me wrong I still live in my Stan Smiths) but these babies have really inspired me to be a bit more adventurous with my footwear. Since these mules feel quite dressy for me I decided to make the rest of my outfit super relaxed so I opted for my trusty culottes, a comfy staple tee and my favourite denim jacket. You guys know I’m a sucker for a beautiful bag so of course I had to bring my beautiful Chloé Faye backpack along for brunch too. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the blue version of the Faye bag online anywhere but I’m completely obsessed with this taupe colour too!
Last Sunday Aslan headed out to spend a day with a few of his friends which meant that I had the entire Sunday to myself! On days like this when the weather isn’t so great I’d usually end up curled on the sofa next to Reggie with a book, but since the sun was shining I decided to seize the day and head out to Marelybone to stock up on some Summer reading and take a little wander around the shops (but of course I had to make Aslan take my outfit picture before he left!) First things first I HAVE to talk about my beautiful Acne Rope Jungle Backpack. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I’ve been completely in love with this bag since the moment I laid my eyes on it! It was pricey (oops), but since I spotted it while Aslan and I were in Japan (and I’d never seen anything like it before) I knew that I couldn’t leave this baby behind! Whilst I was searching for it on the internet I found this backpack which is by Jessica Simpson (would you believe!?) and it’s actually a pretty perfect dupe! You guys know that I’ve also been super into khaki utility jackets and this one by French Connection is perfect for Spring!
Last but not least we’re onto the outfit that you guys seemed to love the most! I threw this combo together really quickly but it actually turned out to be one of my favourite outfits that I’ve worn this month. As I was saying, I’ve been consciously trying to be a bit more adventurous with my footwear and these blush-coloured velvet mules by Dune London were just the kind of thing that I was looking for! Again, I decided to pair them with a pair of my most-worn Citizens of Humanity Jeans and a super cute, lightweight frilly top. For a finishing touch I popped on a pair of my fave crazy pink Gentle Monster sunglasses to tie it all together. Unfortunately I think that these Gentle Monster sunnies have sold out but I did stumble upon these super cool pink glasses on the ASOS website which are just as amazing!
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing some of the outfits that I’ve been wearing this month, definitely make sure you head over to my channel to watch my Maystée vlog series to see what else I’ve been up to! I actually really enjoyed putting this post together so maybe I should make these kinds of posts more of a regular thing? Quite a lot of you have been asking me to put together a post about my wardrobe staples so let me know if you’d like to see something like that from me soon. Let’s hope this glorious weather sticks around so that I can wear loads more summery outfits like these! Also, make sure you’re following me on Instagram so that you can see my outfit pics as soon as I post them.
