Get the Look
The ‘Beast from the East’ has moved West * and the sun was shining this morning, so I am celebrating what feels like Spring with one of my favourite looks. Classic, timeless, comfortable and effortlessly stylish.
*pretty sure that’s not true but it had a good ring to it!

SHOP THIS LOOK
While the trench is undoubtedly a classic wardrobe staple, it doesn’t feel exciting enough for me to ‘invest’ in. I am much more of a handbags and shoes girl and feel that an item like a trench coat can easily be found on the high street. I don’t actually own a trench coat (shock, horror!
), so I have just ordered this one from New Look
. I thought £49.99 was a good price and I really love the colour and the classic details. I will let you know what it’s like when it arrives. I am also extremely tempted to buy these Dune backless loafers
which are such a great copy of the Gucci loafers which I really like, but don’t love enough to save up four hundred and ninety five pounds for.
I adore Mansur Gavriel handbags at the ‘slightly more affordable’ end of the designer handbag price range, but they are still pricey, so if you are in need of a tan leather bucket bag for Spring Summer, then this one at Mango
is definitely worth a look.
And finally the classic white tee. This v neck
linen tee from Majestic
at The Outnet
is half price and looks like great quality. However if you are looking for something a bit more budget friendly, then this mercerised one from Mango
looks very soft for £12.99. Ooh and a little heads up on a pair of jeans that I spotted this morning. My Topshop Straight jeans
are still my current favourites but I wish I had gone down a size as they have stretched. In high waisted jeans, this effectively means that the crotch drops a few centimetres. It doesn’t look that awful but it feels a bit strange…So if you are ordering the Topshop jeans consider ordering a size down. They may be a bit tight at first but I promise they stretch! And if you are still looking for high waisted jeans (remember they elongate your legs if you aren’t tall) then these
look great from H&M. (and are currently reduced!) You are welcome.. 🙂
So while this is only one outfit, every single item would work hard in your wardrobe this Spring Summer.
Happy Shopping and thanks for reading!
