Topshop striped top (sold out but similar here) / Dali skirt via Etsy / Zara flats / Primark bag (similar option) / Celine sunglasses / Forever21 bangles / & Other Stories ring
I am a huge admirer of surrealism and anything by Salvador Dali is really visually pleasing to me. I could lose hours staring at his paintings. The Persistence of Memory is probably one of the most well known of his works and I couldn't resist combining two of my biggest loves, fashion and art, with this gorgeous handmade printed skirt I found while browsing Etsy. I need to make a note to peruse that site more, it's the perfect place to source something a little quirkier from many a talented and creative designer. Though I love pairing this skirt with a basic tee, this time I've gone for a bit of subtle print mixing with a striped top and polka dot satchel. My ultimate, favourite Dali painting is called The Metamorphosis of Narcissus and I'm lucky in the fact that it currently resides at Tate Modern, which isn't too far away from me. Since I'm all for wearing artwork now, if I find that particular image on an item of clothing I think my life will be pretty complete.
