The older I get the more I’m of the opinion that clothes and accessories should spark joy (to borrow a phrase) – both for the wearer and the observer. Life is too short for boring clothes! Of course, I have my fair share of joggers and simple T-shirts for wearing around the house, but I keep those for indoors. An unusual print, a quirky accessory or something sparkly can be a great conversation starter!

These sunglasses were the starting point for this outfit of green sparkles and bling

I’m sure you all know by now how I love statement sunglasses! Well these are the latest addition to my collection. They’re upcycled, handmade from a seller on Etsy called Hollywood Vintage who I first discovered on Instagram. The embellishments are broken pieces of jewellery repurposed to make the most fabulous shades. These sunglasses were the starting point for this outfit of green sparkles and bling. I immediately thought of this lurex wrap top and then decided to add more green with the trousers. Pairing the dark green with lime creates enough of a contrast. Just to break it up though, I chose a pair of multi coloured shoes that I bought in a charity shop for £6 a couple of years ago. The rainbow bag kind of matches the shoes with the colours.

The earrings were a little added bonus included in my order and made to match the sunglasses. Dangly earrings would probably have been too much and competed with the sunglasses for attention, so these are the perfect style and size.

Lastly, I looked for a suitable necklace, and after realising that I don’t have a lot of green jewellery I unearthed this rather quirky one by Betsey Johnson. I’ve had it for years but never worn it before – I really don’t know why because it’s so cute! After we shot these photos I made a TikTok of this outfit which you can see here. I’m slowly getting to grips with TikTok and IG Reels…it’s a work in progress!

How do you feel about TikTok and IG Reels? Apparently Instagram favours video now, so will that change the way you use the platform?

  10. Emma those sunnies and the green lurex top are tooooooooo good!!

    I’ve got to grips with reels now but I’m avoiding TikTok… I have enough problems trying to get round to posting on IG, never mind adding another platform to my To-Do list! But reels are easy and always end up looking good so I’m okay with that {shrugs shoulders because it is what it is}

    Thank you for hosting my lovely xx

  13. Quirky, fun, and so colorful! How could it not spark joy! Totally agree with that when we dress. Love the accessories here, that is a darling necklace, and of course I love the sunglasses! I would wear different kinds too, if I wasn’t so blind needing a prescription with every pair.
    Love your top, the green looks marvelous!
