My Style | What I’m Wearing

I love crisp white shirts with jeans (very Victoria Beckham), I have a couple but one particular favourite.

Ok, I’ll admit –  it’s from New Look but what the hell, It’s a classic look and one I shall be wearing a lot, especially during the warmer months. Today I’m wearing it under my trench.

With the dawn of the “not so skinny: straight leg, or mom jeans I wanted some immediately but really struggled to find a pair that ticked all the boxes. I love jeans and own far too many pairs but of course, the majority are skinny, high-waisted. However, I did have an old pair which I doctored.

Out came my sewing machine and a pair of scissors and I set about re-shaping the legs and attacking the knees. I’ve been wearing them to death ever since.

The essential trench coat – we all need one. I purchased this from Superdry over the weekend.  It’s not your typical ‘Superdry’ the branding is low-key and well, it’s just gorgeous. The quality and detail are fantastic and feels very expensive on. The collar is double layered with a really lovely stitch detail which you can see. I paid £99 for mine.

I shall wear it with my beloved Louis Vuitton Ienà This bag gets very well used as it’s one of those ultimate handbags. I love it so much, it makes me feel ‘posh’ and who doesn’t like that? There are a phone pocket and a couple of other compartments inside plus a handy zip pocket on the front. The bag also has a little padlock so you can lock the two tabs together when it’s zipped up. This came in very handy on a recent trip to Venice where pickpockets are rife.

Finally, my shoes. I went loafer crazy a couple of springs ago and whilst they remain fashionable, I’m still wearing them! These are from River Island and a lovely neutral tan colour. Perfect for non-trainer days. They’ve covered a fair few miles and are still going strong. Also very comfortable.
