Barbican Space Inspired Spring Outfit | Grey & Blue

Blue Top & Grey Culottes | Tatty Devine Barbican Space Necklace | Fake Fabulous

I don't know about you, but there is something I find myself doing a lot recently...

Building an entire outfit around a single item that has caught my eye.
Sometimes the inspiring items are not even fashion related...

  • Images in magazines, and life.
  • Interiors.
  • Colours in nature.
  • Even architecture!

Inspiration can come in so many forms, can't it?
Keeping an open mind is always a good idea.

Quite often a pair of shoes will turn my head and get my creative juices flowing.
Call me shallow if you like but I love shoes and often work from the bottom of an outfit up.
But, today a funky necklace is my source of inspiration.

Blue Top & Grey Culottes | Tatty Devine Barbican Space Necklace | Fake Fabulous

This necklace popped up in the sale a few weeks ago and I snapped it up!

I've had my beady eye on it for a while but, as a seasoned deal-finder, it was more expensive than I wanted.
I suspected it could make its way into the sale... luckily it did.
(Phew!)

I bided my time and voila!

Unfortunately, this necklace is now sold out, but you can see similar space-inspired pieces HERE.

{BTW... I'm not sponsored or affiliated with the brand that makes this necklace. I just love Tatty Devine's designs and have done for years.}

With my space inspired necklace, I wanted to keep things light and spring-like but with that spaced-out futuristic feel.
What better colours than grey and blue?
Just industrial enough.

Super-soft textures were what I needed and these cashmere culottes (plus a silk top) fitted the bill.

Simple chunky sandals finished things off nicely!

Such an easy look to pull together.
Comfortable and easy-going but I still feel 'dressed' and ready for anything.

Do you ever build an entire outfit around an accessory such as a necklace, scarf or bag?

What about inspiration from other sources?
I'd love to hear what's been turning your head this week!

  5. mwahaha, I also did it, building a whole outfit over an accessory, a color, whatever, even a pair of socks!. And your necklace is really stunning, the colors and design are really cool!, and I like how you created a subtle harmony using grey and blue, but adding interesting textures (silk and cashmere, love it!)
    Your culottes are fabulous! and they looks so warm and cozy!

    1. Comments linking to commercial sites are deleted... Sorry.
      Plus there are no florals in this outfit so commenting about my lovely floral outfit with a view to a link dump is very obvious!!

  7. I have most definitely styled an outfit around one piece. I guess accessories by nature are meant to compliment or complete an overall look but there are some pieces that just deserve to take center stage. Though I'm not a minimalist I often take off an accessory because it seems to be fighting for attention with some other piece. I'm not a fan of matching jewelry sets because I prefer that one piece is the featured player! Why purchase a really smashing necklace and then not let it fulfill it's destiny??
    The colors and geometric design of this Tatty Devine necklace are so beautiful! I think your look is dramatic BECAUSE of this necklace!
