Figuring out what to wear can be made easier with a new set of accessories. Thanks to eQUIP, I was able to breathe new life into this outfit I've been wanting to wear, but haven't because I have not come across the right accessories to 'complete' it. Ever since cutting my hair short, I have avoided wearing hats, as I feel they may engulf what's left of my hair and would look completely ridiculous. With wide brim felt hats trending, part of me wishes I could have my long hair back to fully embrace the boho, effortless look. However, all of that changed when I tried on this particular felt hat by eQUIP. It's brim isn't too wide that it covers your face or of that awkward "is it suppose to be bowler/fedora hat, cause I really cannot tell" style. Perfect to wear everyday, hide bed hair or if you have short hair like me... you can skip styling it and chuck on this baby. Too easy!

If you haven't noticed already, I'm all about statement necklaces, so this Navajo-inspired one definitely ticks my box. The creamy, baby pink stones and paisley shaped collar attracts the eye and will also look great worn higher over a collared shirt. Here I have opted to wear it with an unbuttoned floral jacket,  faux leather skirt  and studded loafers to toughen up this feminine ensemble. Another interesting detail, is this eagle head ring with it's beak arching over the finger. Whilst giving an edgy touch, it's shiny, diamonte eye adds a hint of glam, a unique accessory and conversation-starter.

I hope you are all having great start to the week. If you follow me on Twitter, you've probably seen my comment that this is my final week of being a 23 year old. Oh dear. Given how fast this year is flying by, I won't be at all surprised for my birthday (this Friday the 8th) to catch me unaware like an eagle sweeping down at it's prey. Ha! Couldn't help but to include that little eagle reference. Hope that made you smile! :)

Happy week everyone! Catch me on Instagram (@youronlyblackswan) for daily snaps and funny Memes like this one.
