Crown and Glory, I love you...

In the goody bags from the Brum Blogger Meet there was a discount code for the lovely Crown & Glory. I had often admired their designs from afar but never actually chosen anything as it all looked so nice. I finally took the plunge and ordered a turban not knowing whether it would suit me. Luckily once it arrived in all it's beautifully packaged glory, I fell in love...


The attention to detail is reason enough to spend all of your pennies at Crown & Glory, even if the designs weren't as lovely as they are. 

Blouse: Miss Selfridge, shorts: New Look, jacket: Tesco, shoes: NW3 at Hobbs, turban: Crown & Glory
I paired the turban with a familiar and comfortable outfit and then I grabbed these shoes as I ran out of the door. They are really quite high but the chunky wooden heels makes me a lot more stable as I wobble along! The inky grey colour perfectly matched my turban and complimented the jacket too. 


Outtake of the day goes to this photo as I try to balance on a tiny rock and show off the heels. You can see how unsure I am from the look on my face :P

Just casually reclining on my wall...  
The turban was super comfy and kept my ears toasty warm and once I had managed to tame my wild mane of hair it didn't budge. Once I got over my initial self-consciousness I completely forgot I had it on until somebody complimented me on it, which for me is the ultimate test. 


Would you ever wear a turban? How would you have styled it?

I realise that this sounds like a sponsored post but I honestly just love Crown & Glory that much!  I have a wishlist as long as my arm and I am hoping that something from them turns up on my birthday! (HINT HINT)

I've never bought anything from Crown and Glory either. I love the turban though. You paired it so well, especially with the blazer. I really love the blazer.

It's not that I don't love the look of turbans, I just know how tiny my head is, making hats, big hair bands, bows look ridiculous on me.

On you however, beautiful. Love your choice (stylish as ever queridita) and it really suits you.
