It’s common for fashion loving Oscar viewers to have a number of looks they adore on the red carpet and I’m usually part of that majority. But for the 2014 Oscars there was one look that I loved so much, as soon as I saw it I completely lost interest in everything else and spent the rest of my afternoon intermittently glancing at the television screen with my main focus on Google, where I searched frantically for more picture of the heavenly dress and the celebrity who did it such justice! It was, Lupita Nyong’o in Prada.
Now, it’s common knowledge that Lupita Nyong’o never looks short of amazing, but WOW. Such a beautiful dress on such a stunning lady! I have always loved the colour “duck egg blue”, as Ryan Seacrest so brilliantly described it, and this dress rekindled my obsession, while confirming that yes it is indeed my all time favourite colour (for now). So with this in mind, I have been on a mission to add more bluey tones to my wardrobe and have put together my current duck egg blue inspired wish list to share with you.

After seeing these stylish yet comfortable beauties on some of my fashion favourite bloggers such as Song of Style and Sincerely Jules, I fell head over heels and knew I had to have them.
So, after a lot of time day dreaming about how many different outfits I could wear them with and carefully saving my pennies, I am now the proud new owner of a pair of my very own Chanel Espadrilles (Squeal).

Song of Style is a fashion and lifestyle blog by interior designer Aimee Song – I like to think of Aimee as the master of taking seemingly simple garments and creating an outfit that is utterly chic and stunning – every time! (and don’t even get me started on her apartment! Words can not even describe! Check it out for yourself here). Song of Style is actually one of the first blogs I started to follow and Aimee fast became my style icon – she also had a hefty influence on the decision to start blogging myself!
I love to browse through the perfectly executed photographs, admiring Aimee’s wardrobe and gaining outfit inspiration – and despite having a full-time interior design job AND an incredibly popular blog, Aimee has always answered any questions I have had, whether it be blog advice or where I can find a garment she’s been snapped in at an event. So, clearly I’m a bit of a fan, but seriously – I couldn’t fault her if I tried!
