This is my minimalist take on spots & stripes, abstract spots in the form of leopard print which in my book can be considered a neutral and Breton stripes which are an absolute essential. If you put them together with a few black and white classics you have an outfit I’d wear almost anywhere. I’m utterly in love with these Gianvitto Rossi leopard print flats. They look great with a short skirt but they’d definitely work so well with a pair of Levi’s 501 CT jeans, a loosely buttoned crisp white shirt and some simple gold jewellery as well. And where do I start with the hat? I’ve only just discovered LA based label Janessa Leoné and it was love at first sight, I want every one of their hats n every colour. I’ve now seen them on so many fellow bloggers like Mija and Damsel In Dior and they always look really good. If customs were to stop me between LA and London they may just think I was trying to import them, I’d have a suitcase filled with them.
