Goldie



Trousers, brogues and a tea cosy.  Basically…


Cobalt blue jumper: Mens Zara. Pink trousers (part of a two piece suit): Zara (similar ones  here). Laminate brogues: Zara (or try these <— gorge in real life or these). Blazer: The Row (sample sale). Shades: Ray Ban. Bag: Vintage Coach.  Woolly hat: (will confirm shortly!). Mens watch: Seiko (I love this one by Michael Kors). Necklaces here and here.
I’ve always loved the look of a pair of cropped trousers and a big heavy brogue (pics in these before).
Something about that combination…. I swear, us girls are lucky. We get to not only own tons of clothes (which we probably don’t really need but that’s another story), but also to dress like the boys.  As if one gender of clothing wasn’t enough for us.

Speaking of which I ordered these.

    I am in absolute love with this color combination, especially with the metallic accent.
    I don’t usually shop in the men’s section, but I do have a boy’s sweater that I love to wear.

    I love how you paired the electric blue and the fuschia pink PLUS those golden shoes! OMG so eccentric yet chic in it’s own way!

    You try so hard to stay relevant and it’s getting annoying. You do not dress well by any standard of measure. At this point, people only look at your blog for what it used to be. Now your sense of style is completely out there and I can’t imagine that anyone but circus clowns would manage to draw some inspiration from your outfits. Complete and utter rubbish, this blog. I am unsubscribing straight away.

    I agree with the comments of this user, I used to love your blog and actually buy items I saw that you had but now, I can`t relate to your style anymore. What happened to the Karen I knew? I still like you but you used to inspire me alot more before…

    Ha you are so right. Like we need don’t have enough stuff that is girly we have to swing to the gender and steal from them too! I do love the mix of brights with the black blazer and wool hat. Great combo. I have a brown pair of brogues that my bf bought me but I never seem to look as good in them as you.
    Cheers,
    Bre
