everyday me

After my last two posts I thought it might be useful to show what I like to wear on a day to day basis ... that is when I'm not at work (smart office wear). I would have preferred to do this as a usual outfit post but I'm a bit poorly at the minute and doubt that my green face would be a good representation of my daily style (which today has been cupcake print pyjamas and ... eek ... no makeup).

I like to keep the basis of the outfit simple - I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. This not only means that it is really easy to decide what to wear, but also I can go to town with accessories!

Jeans are such a staple wardrobe item that I think it's worth spending money on them - I have a lovely pair of citizens of humanity jeans lying dormant at the moment ... must stay away from cakes! And you can't beat gap for really good quality basics like t-shirts, only problem is the nearest one to me has closed so I'll have to get searching for another.

In between the rainy days of the summer (and even on some of them) I refuse to cover my feet so I have a great selection of casual sandals like these white ones from new look (£6), also I seem to have the biggest bag collection ever (or so I'm told by the hubby) even so the pink woven one from topshop (£30) is looooovely! I'm going through a bit of a scarf phase - I've been drooling over this cameo print one from miss selfridge (£12) which may just have to be ordered as part of my recovery process. While I was on the site I also found this adorable bow bracelet (£8) which may also happen to find itself in my basket! I have absolutely loads of pearl earrings, some real and some fake, I think they add a certain sophistication to whatever the outfit ... unless a) its a tracksuit or b) they are the size of a 50p.

Then its the face - Its sad to say but I won't leave the house without having applied the following items at the very least: YSL touche eclat, maybelline the falsies (fave of the moment), blusher and a slick of carmex.

How about you - what is your everyday style?

  1. I like your effortless chic! And I agree with you on the pearls - they always class up an outfit.
