When it comes to my "every day uniform" - hilarious term because let's be totally honest, mostly I just chuck on the first thing that
I see on my floordrobe falls out of my wardrobe - I am a firm believer in opting for classic, minimalistic, basic bitch, simple pieces. And then jazzing them up* a little with stunning, stand out accessories.
*Jazzing them up? Can we excuse the fact that I went to sleep as a 22 year old and woke up as an 80 year grandma please? Thank you, thank you very much...
So for today's "oh crap, I woke up late (and definitely not like this) and have 5 minutes to look mildly 'put together'' look, I opted for a classic black jean and oversized (i.e borrowed from my Dad) shirt, paired with two new additions that I am absolutely in love with.
The Radley Portman Flapover bag, and these metallic, chloe-esque boots from Clarks. Radley, Clarks.... [insert heart eye'd and hand clapping emoji's here].
Starting with The Radley Portman Bag...
Plus the colour means that it's perfect for the festive season.
Oh crap, totally went there with the Christmas vibes in October [insert monkey covering eyes emoji here].
Moving on to a pair of boots that similarly to The Radley beauty, were total total love at first sight... The Stanhope ankle boot. I absolutely adore the metallic silver colour and have done ever since I first spotted
my girlfriend, my BFF, my bae Olivia Palermo in a pair of silver brogues a while back now. But as much as I love the colour, it's the style of boot that I utterly adore. They remind me a lot of the Chloe buckle boots in shape but I just love the combination of the buckles, the slightly pointed toe, and that they sit just above the ankle so work perfectly with jeans/trousers, or tights (... and a dress/skirt/shorts of course, otherwise that would just be wierd) ;) They're also extremely comfortable so they will definitely be coming on my trips to Edinburgh and New York with me. Chic, unique - I want to make the "I'm a poet and I didn't know it" gag but I also know it'll make me want to punch myself - and completely comfortable. Now that is my kinda shoe.
Shop the look:
And that brings my little OOTD/"Hey guys, I got this bag that I've fallen in love with and shoes that I never want to take off" ramble to an end. I have to say, I loved putting this together as I genuinely adore both pieces so I hope you love them as much as I do.
As always, thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
