Striped Off-The-Shoulder Top and Black Culottes

A touch of spring with Karen Millen.

Who else cannot believe that we're already half way through spring? Oh, how time is flying by way too quickly! I, for one, am enjoying any of that magical spring sunshine we can get right now, with the clouds and rain being very persistent on the West Coast this season.

Despite this, I'm taking advantage of every beautiful day we get by flaunting my new spring pieces from Karen Millen. There's no doubting that I've always been drawn to classic styles with a twist, which is one of the reasons I fell head-over-heels for the Karen Millen Striped Bardot Top. Its unusual striped pattern and off-the-shoulder detail makes me feel like I'm galavanting along the Italian coastline, and I'm most certainly not complaining. My favourite detail though? The matching waist belt that I've knotted around my neck!

I styled the top with a pair of the comfiest black wide leg culottes, which have an almost hidden vent detail up the side of each leg (you know, just incase the weather decides to heat up any time soon - hint-hint, nudge-nudge).

I adore how this look can be paired with stiletto heels for a night out or flat mule slides for something a little more casual. Either way, you can bet I'll be outfit repeating this one all spring (and summer!) long.

I'm wearing: Karen Millen striped top and black culottes, black patent belt, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag and The Mode Collective stiletto heels.
