Strawberry Shortcake

Inspired by a print, obsessed with those little details, today's look is classic pinup perfection with only the best accessories to match.

For this set I was a little bit strawberry crazed! The sweet treat inspired the colour, accessories
and even the picnic print. I started with a core piece that inspired me and built my ultimate look from there.

 The Violetta skirt might just be the cutest swing skirt I've ever owned and the sweet design and whimsical features inspired this entire look. As you can see this piece has the most adorable design elements which I'll show in detail a little further down. 

I opted for my usual size 18UK in both the cardigan and skirt as both pieces have an amazing amount of stretch and comfort. 

While most gingham prints  are usually purely cotton and limited in stretch this skirt has lots of give and the matching belt is super comfy. 

The Lucy Be Bop cardigan is perfection in knitwear form! Offering the right amount of warmth, perfect fit and my obsession - a 3/4 length sleeve. 

Be Bop Be Doo is embroidered on each side of this cardigan along with notes on staff. I'm absolutely loving the musical element and how perfectly it flows into the cardigan design. 

How perfect do these two pieces pair with each other? No the details on this skirt really do make you fall in love with daisy edged heart shape pockets and a white heart bucked belt. So sweet and simple they really create such an extra level of magic.

My amazing ruby red claws are from Nightmare Nails and love how the rich red glitter works with the gingham.

Accessory wise I could not go past the absolutely AMAZING Lulu Hun Dina Strawberry Basket Bag. This stunning piece is a functioning work of art and has enough room to store all that you'd usually store in your purse for an day/night out.

The strawberry, leaves and bow decoration on the lid of this basket really do make this piece pop and you'll be the envy of everyone when you accessorize with this stunning piece.

As you can see I really did go 100% in theme with this look even down to my toes! My most loved Irregular Choice heels pair perfectly with every aspect of this outfit and I love how the clash of patterns create such cohesiveness. 

Yellow Strawberry Necklace and Earring Set

To complete the look I've gone classic retro with this Strawberry set from Summer Blue Jewelry on Esty. This Bakelite / Fakelite style necklace is finished with red strawberries and green Lucite leaves on a matching plastic chain for a fun and delicious style reminiscent of vintage strawberry pieces from the 30's and 40's.

Topped off with an sweet pair of single strawberry earrings this by far my favourite jewelry set and I'll be wearing this constantly. I'm already putting together my next lust list from Summer Blue as these pieces are so chic and affordable!

I finally got to snap a few shots of these amazing Air Lash synthetic and super long lashes! These are absolutely effortless to wear and really look bold yet natural. I can't wait to create another pinup look with the more dramatic set.

You can snap these up in the link above or read my full review here : All About Those Lashes. While I usually only wear magnetic lashes these are just as easy to use and will be in many of my images from now on.
