This is the first post of my outfit of the day (OOTD) series. I've got quite an idiosyncratic style sense - I'd describe it as classic and very understated. Think whites, blacks, greys, denim, elegant patterns and muted colours (hello pastels!) It basically means you'll never find me in bright fuchsias and lurid prints.
Spring outfit inspiration
Off-the-shoulder tops are still in season this year. On this occasion, I went for a white off-the-shoulder top paired with blue denim and black flats - you can't go wrong with a classic combination like this.
APC Ella bag - a current favourite
I have a fondness for gold accessories, so I absolutely adore this black APC bag with golden accents. The gold chain elevates the plain leather but is subtle enough for the day (I actually frequently take it to work), yet also edgy enough for the evening.
The bag fits a lot and the chain is the perfect length - i.e. you can rummage around inside the bag for items without having to remove from your shoulder. Bags like this earn extra points in my book.
