I first discovered the Singapore-based accessories label CHARLES & KEITH earlier this year. Whilst scouring through street style pictures from NYFW in February, I noticed some of my favourite Scandi bloggers and other Insta-favourites swinging the same stylish pistachio-green tote around Manhattan, and I knew I had to move quick before it sold out (*it already was!) I was however, really happy to learn upon further investigation, that CHARLES & KEITH had not only just launched in the UK, but also, were brilliantly affordable… Can I get a ‘whoop, whoop?!’
CHARLES & KEITH launched in 1996, specialising in shoes, but has since expanded with a covetable collection of handbags, jewellery and sunglasses, with an abundance of ever-updating styles to suit one and all. Having had an in-depth perusal of their website (I call it ‘research…’) I found amongst the varying colours and patterns, some gorgeous new Spring styles I couldn’t resist.
I find getting a couple of new statement accessories to be the simplest and most purse-friendly way to refresh and brighten up my existing outfits, and with warmer weather on the horizon, I’m thrilled to have found these CHARLES & KEITH wardrobe additions giving me the literal Spring in my step I’ve been looking for…
I have always been a massive fan of wearing bulky sling-backs (otherwise known as ‘Man Repellers’) and these on-trend raffia versions from CHARLES & KEITH available in both Black and Blush were both added to basket at first sight. They are so comfortable and give a certain weight to my more feminine and quirkier Spring outfits.
These chic Dark Green and Blush Fringe Sliders (similar here) look far more expensive than they are, and will give me the exact day to night Spring in my step I will soon be needing. I also couldn’t resist the sling-back’s matching weave tote bag… Welllll, it would be rude not to (plus, it fits my laptop, which is a huge bonus!)
I love this Petal Fold Bucket Bag as there was something of the Safari Chic about it (which is obviously something that will always appeal to me… ‘You can take the girl out of Africa…’) and it was clearly calling out to be paired with some of my wild prints. For a more Spring/Summer vibe, the bag is also available in a lovely Buttercup Yellow.
