Wow can you believe how close we are to Christmas?! I am looking forward to having three solid days with the family and just eating everything I possibly can, watching as much crap Christmas tv and just taking it easy.
This is something I wore a few weeks back, the coat, jeans and scarf are from last winter and I just gave them a little update with this years boots and sunglasses. A breton-striped top and jeans is a definite fail-safe combo and lets face it, is always chic. For outwear I chose this tailored grey coat, as it smartened up the overly casual tone, mainly caused by the technically unflattering style of the jeans. When it came to shoes, I stuck with one of my favourites buys this season, my Kurt Geiger boots, they were perfect for that smart/casual balance that I wanted to emphasise on when putting this look together.
The outfit seemed to need a little pick-me-up so I added a splash of red with my knitted scarf from Topshop. Love how it seemed to lift all the colours within the look so perfectly. Even though a pair of classic Ray Ban's would of been again, a fail-safe option and were the first to spring to mind, I ended up going with these Ilesteva sunnies, they felt a little more unexpected. A quality I always try to include in a look. Occasionally I like to go against what first comes to mind, as it can be what takes an outfit from looking good to great because you've taken just a little extra time to see if your second thought works better then your first. Although I would almost always say go with your initial reaction.
Well my lovelies I really do hope you like this look, I hope to be back with a final little post tomorrow before my Christmas break.
Thank you and take care,
