Wardrobe Basic - Tank Top

Having found a fine knit tank at One Scoop Store  recently (this place is fast becoming an addiction!) I've had a quick look around to see what others I could find. I found this at Jigsawthis at ZaraAll SaintsAll Saints againHush.  I'm planning on wearing mine over a shirt or breton (and maybe even a dress!) whilst the weather is still cool.

Belted Denim Jacket

Let's begin with our usual Pinterest Inspiration...

Recently I came across a belted denim jacket, so of course I had to do some further research into where I could buy one from. I've yet to find  the one that fits me just right but I have found several..  this one from Weekday,  this Other Stories onethis Stories one tooone from Nextthis one and this one.   Also Vestiaire Collective have this preloved YSL beauty  , this one (albeit without a belt) and this Levi's one.

I think I'll dip my toe in with the collarless Stories one....I'm envisaging wearing it with dresses, skirts, jeans and tees - yes all of my Summer wardrobe!

Back soon!

PS I found this Me and Em jacket which I love but unfortunately it is sold out :(  If you happen to spot one in a size 8 please let me know!

Wardrobe Basic - White Shirt

Image via Pinterest

This sunny Spring weather has me dreaming of wearing a crisp white shirt and blue jeans - ideally without an extra layer over or under for warmth.  I've been researching over the last few days and have come across some beauties such as this from Coast (I'm loving the sleeve detail), this classic from J Crewthis from Jigsaw, this slightly looser fit from John Lewisthis Whistles bargain, this Gant one and this relaxed Boden one which is currently on sale. 

I'm certain the High Street faves H&M, Zara et al have several white shirts in their ranges too, but I'd advise spending a little more on this wardrobe basic for longevity both in pure whiteness and style.  Cost per wear you won't regret it as it will be a staple for both your weekday and weekend wardrobes all year round.

I'm loving the look of this Baum und Pferdgarten sweater, as spotted on the fabulous dana and the red shoes

Here's similar from Topshop, minus the white stripes
