Dress - Dorothy Perkins, Jacket - Malene Birger, Necklace - Courtesy Stolen Thunder, Boots - Schuh

Bit of a different challenge this time - I've never planned an outfit around a necklace before! Stolen Thunder sent us each one of their adorable wooden necklaces to style, so in keeping with the natural theme I went for a floral outfit with some boots to add a bit of an edge.

I don't know how well you can see the necklace in my photos, but it has been quite divisive every time I've worn it out so far. People either love it or hate it! I am firmly in the love category, it's surprisingly easy to throw on with a lot of different outfits and go.

If you fancy getting your own piece of wooden joy Stolen Thunder are offering at 15% discount with the code TAKETEN on their website so get shopping!

I love how you've worn floral on floral, it actually works really well! Lovely outfit x

Lizzy said...

Does it actually say 'LOL'? Lol :). A necklace does seem like quite an unusual thing to build an outfit around, but I do like your grungy florals look! xx

So fond of your pretty floral dress.
I love the image of you on the bench; nice footwear, too. The necklace is very sweet. Have a nice day and a fab weekend;-)

Love it! I've been a Stolen Thunder fan for ages, I have an amazing wooden Russian Doll necklace that I got years ago in Nottingham. It's adorable.
I heart your boots so much! x

Style Eyes said...

I love it and I love the outfit that you have styled it with. I can't get enough of mixed florals

SabinePsynopsis said...

I think I'm firmly in the hate category - but I LOVE how you styled it with the different floral patterns. Your laissez-faire bench modelling also goes perfectly with it... xoxo

This is my favourite take 10 project, because everyone's style really comes through with such strength.
I think their necklaces are really cute and I like how you've integrated it.

THis is one of my favourite ensembles of yours so far - those prints are exquisite, and the colours so perfect for you, for late summer, for early autumn...I am stunned by the dress, too! I have only recently been able to relate to Dotty P, and they do seem to be adding so many lovely things. If ever two prints were exclusively made for each other, it's these!

My Hideaway said...

I love your boots! And I think the necklace looks really cute too:)

Shopgirl said...

Love the lovely necklace :) And the outfit complements it beautifully, xx

Krissy (Shimmer Like Gold) said...

I really like Stolen Thunder's wooden items, and you surely made that necklace more special with those mixed print. Lovely!
