“Less is More”
I’ve always been a lover of the simple, classic and ‘clean’ look and this applies to all areas of my life. My home is very classic in style with simple clean lines and muted colours. My wardrobe is minimalistic mix of whites, blacks, greys, camel and navy blue with my shoe and bag collection mirroring that! The plus side of this? Everything mixes and matches and I find it very easy to put outfits together.
There are occasions where I long for a little flash of colour (and I have been planning some purchases going into Spring and Summer to satisfy this craving – watch this space!) but on the whole I prefer to stick to classic items of clothing that fit well and are timeless and I will spend more on these, opting for items that I see as an ‘investment’. I will occasionally follow a faddy trend but for this type of thing I’ll purchase from the likes of ASOS, Zara, Topshop or Missguided.
Jewellery and accessories are another area where I apply the ‘less is more’ mantra…
“…encapsulates my style perfectly”
Now I don’t wear a lot of jewellery and for me to fall in love with something it can’t complicate my ‘minimalistic’ approach to dressing. My watch is plain and classic in design and I only every wear small diamond studs in my ears day to day (these may get switched up for a night out on a rare occasion!)
So I guess you could say I’m a bit of a fussy cow when it comes to jewellery!
I’ve recently discovered Lucinda King, a Welsh jewellery line that encapsulates my style perfectly. The designs are dainty, clean and contemporary and very in keeping with my style.
When you think of classic items of clothing that everyone should have, what do you think of? For me it’s a pair of comfortable blue jeans that you can dress up or down, the perfect white shirt, a classic black handbag, a pair of nude high heels, a fitted blazer – do you catch my drift?! Staple items that will last you a lifetime.
Lucinda King designs are the jewellery ‘equivalents’ of these items.
A mixture of both silver and rose gold (next on my list!) with delicate and simplistic designs. Think pretty hearts, stars and sparkling tiny set-stones that you can wear alone or stack without looking ‘overdone’.
“Clean, contemporary and elegant designs”
Jewellery designer Sam, who founded ‘Lucinda King‘ and used to work for Clogau as a Creative Designer has ventured out on her own creating a unique collection of clean, contemporary and elegant designs. I’m really drawn to the whole range as a result, I love the brand and the concept and can’t wait to see how it evolves. With Spring around the corner we will all be showing a little more flesh in the months to come and these designs are the perfect way to enhance this!
I also must mention the packaging before I leave you to browse through the website because I’m one of those people who appreciates good quality when I see it! We are talking sturdy, expensive feeling jewellery boxes here and would make a perfect gift for someone (including yourself!!!)
