MBFWA: Day Two

 Wearing: Atmosphere print blazer, Monki lace dress, ASOS clutch, rings & heels and a vintage necklace {Photos by Marcus}

When I was young, I used to hate wearing green because it was the colour of my school uniform and the colour that I wore every day. It reminded me of the bitter green gummy lollies that were always the last colour left in the bag and I thought it made me look like an alien. It wasn’t until I started watching Gossip Girl and seeing the characters in such brightly donned outfits, that I began thinking about what I liked to wear. I went through multiple phases of crazy things like, well.. remember those slogan t-shirts that said things like ‘drop beats, not bombs?’ yep I owned quite a few of those. Then there was the phase where I would only wear coloured tights and a trench coat a la the girls in Gossip Girl. However, throughout all the phases, one thing has always remained quite the same. I like bright things and I like colour. Oh and most importantly.. I like green. I am not going to kid you, but most of my outfits (I think I already announced this a few posts ago) that I wore to MBFWA this year incorporate various shades of green. So here’s to a green outfit. Picked this blazer up in London for a mere £20. Purchased those green heels whilst I was in London and got them delivered to my hotel as I was in London (I confess, I have underlying shopping problems – at times). And the clutch which I brought around with me 24/7, thankfully served as a convenient conversation starter when I met Susie Bubble!

    Ah, I definitely had a “Drop beats, not bombs” t-shirt…it was so soft. Also, I adore the jacket! I’ll be honest with you that I don’t really care for green. It reminds me of leprechauns and plants, and not in a good way. I like it here, used in your accents. The lace dress with the printed blazer is also super adorable.

    I feel the same way! My school uniform in high school was green. I absolutely hated wearing green after I graduated, but for some reason green made it back into my closet after a few years. I love the way you dressed up in green!

    Love that Monki lace dress Connie! you look so splendid as always. swear I’m hoooked to your floral and sweet styling from day to day!!
    and of course, is it just me or do you never go with an outfit that doesn’t have a touch of gold in it?
    Really like the look of this neck cuff. 

    ps. if it’s green for you when you’re small, it’s navy blue for me. uniform is COVERED in navy blue. #gettingmonotonous…

    Green used to be one of my favourite colours as a kid! I think pretty much my whole wardrobe was green, now I always find it so hard to actually find anything green, though I still love it. And how can you not like green gummy lollys?! They’re my absolute favourite hahaha!  I seriously love this outfit though. The lace and floral/snakeskin prints are just so cute!
