83







Equipment blouse, Karen Walker cardigan, Topshop trousers and heels, Meadowlark ring

Classic. You know you're onto a good thing when months later you are continuing to receive compliments on said acquisition. While incredibly simple in concept, these Topshop heels - which I just so happen to have in a wine colour also - still manage to stand out and capture the attention of others. It goes to show you the power of simple wardrobe classics, and those that have been re-worked in a way that renders them slightly different to what you would normally expect.

This last year has seen me start to shy away from bold prints in favour of classic pieces and classic cuts with a point of difference, as I've started to appreciate what a beautifully tailored piece can add to an outfit. Cue an addition of white silk blouses, simple grey t-shirts, breton stripe tops, cashmere cardigans in multiples, and full skirts that skim over the hips. This is not to say that I don't still have room for fun printed pieces like these Topshop pants, but more that I've noticed a distinct change in what appeals to me when I'm browsing through shops or lookbooks.

  2. Those pants are pretty awesome!

    I have a few things that I still get compliments on even though they're a year plus old. Makes me feel like I made a really good choice haha : )

    I really need to get some silk blouses (preferably Equipment...but they're expensive) and more basic sweaters and trousers... I do like them but I can never find ones that look good on me
