Hello Little Matchy Matchy Set
The power of Instagram honestly convinced me to buy this set. I saw it advertised on the Mr Price account and loved it immediately. I didn’t buy it straight away but I kept thinking about it so I took that as a sign to buy it. Not that I needed much persuasion. I’ve linked all the pieces at the end of the post.
Striped Gilet & Striped Paperbag Shorts
I’ve always been a fan of a gilet. I’ve worn a few on my blog which you can see here and here. This is my favourite way to style it with a bit of edge. I always thought it had mainly been restricted to more winter outfits so I loved this fresh, neutral look of it. Add matching shorts and you’ve got the cutest set.
I have a few pairs of paperbag shorts. I find them so comfortable to wear. Especially with a tank top. Buy a few colours and you’ve got many options.
How To Style This Set
I convinced myself to “add to cart” with the simple reason that these pieces could be worn together as well as separately. A win-win in my books. For this shoot, I wore a white tank top tucked into the shorts and paired it with block heels of a similar colour. To add some contrast, I wore bright lipstick.
Another cute way would be to add a black top, black heels and a small black clutch bag. Like I said though, these pieces can be worn separately. Heading to lunch with the girls? Pair the gilet with a tank and jeans. Having friends over for a braai? Wear the shorts with a cute graphic tee and some sneakers.
Give Me The Deets!
You can shop the Stripe Gilet here for R199.99. The Paperbag Shorts here for R129.99. Then these are some heels I found that are similar to mine and that suit this look – here, here and here. All under 200 bucks! Glasses are a pair I’ve had forever from Prada.
ps: this bucket bag was a gift from a friend for my birthday and I absolutely love it! I’ve been using it every day since I got it. It’s from Zara.
