Fashion: Back to Basics

Hello everyone!

So today I thought I would break the 'blog break' and bring you one of my go to styles. Basic bitch. Basically I often find dressing this way far too tempting, due to its ease. I am a pretty lazy dresser so if I can put minimal effort in I will. Different case with makeup though, I can spend and entire hour doing my makeup, but more than 15 minutes on dressing and you've lost me. To be honest with you all I have been blogging for some time now and I feel like I've lost a bit of inspiration for it, the kind of motivation that gets you out there, unfazed by the strangers that will stare (thats a lie, people will always stare). However recently I have even contemplated giving up blogging, as it is so time consuming especially when you work full time. Your leisure time becomes so precious that I feel silly spending it taking pictures of myself... 

However a quick stint on Pinterest, Bloglovin and Instagram has shown me the light, for now. This post however is heavily inspired by one particular blogging duo, WeAreTwinset you can find their amazing and babe'in blog here. They always look so put together, classic but with an edge and always minimal. Its a pretty timeless look that I have been obsessed with. So with that in mind I've put together one of my favourite easy looks. Jeans, shirt and heels, not exactly groundbreaking. If it ain't broke don't fix it. 

Sunglasses: RayBan £125
Choker: ASOS £8
Shirt: NewLook £18.99
Jeans: Zara £35
Heels: NewLook £25
Clutch: Whistles (gifted)

You may notice I am wearing jeans, I never wear jeans. I think on this blog alone there are about 3 posts of me in jeans? This is because jeans never ever suit my shape, ever. Until Zara came with the most beautiful of pairs. I think they are supposed to be cropped but my petite self can imagine its full length. These are so easy to chuck on and go with everything especially heels. Which brings me to these beautiful lace up heels from New Look, such a strong retailer this season! Please ignore my disgusting feet, editing these pictures were hard, believe me. Speaking of New Look they knocked the ball out of the park with this shirt. Super silky satin and feels incredible. I first thought it might have been transparent but it honestly is one of the best quality fabrics I have ever adorned! Way better quality than half of the Topshop ones I have seen kicking about for £45. 

Dreams do come true with this clutch. I have been wishing for a Whistles clutch bag for so long. So long. This one was kindly gifted to me and I love it so much I know I can't use it everyday. Its kept in its little bag and used on special occasions, or blog posts... Whistles is one of my favourite aspirational retailers, its a shop I know I can't exactly go on a spree in but love saving for those timeless pieces you know you'll love time and time again. 

I think I have babbled enough for now, I hope you guys have a great week and thanks for all your love and support for my blog over the years. Its meant a lot. For now I will definitely continue blogging, hopefully that moment of madness was a minor blip. 

See you soon!
