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.

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!

  3. super colour choices. x Jacqui Mummabstylish

    1. Thank you Jacqui... the necklace did it all for me! :oP

  4. I absolutely love this necklace, Sam! I often build my outfit around my accessories so I love that you do too! This is a fab outfit and I love the colour combo. XXX

  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. They are Monica! :oP
      Like fluffy pj's... I feel like a big cheat!

    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!

    1. Matching sets make me shudder a little Judy! :oP
      I agree that one statement piece is all we need :o)
