Favourites - Basics.

It's been a while since I've done a favourites post, you'll probably remember the previous posts here and here. I've finally got a new one for you, so without further ado I present to you: Back to Basics.

This post consists of my wardrobe staples that I fall back on when in a rush or feeling lazy/uninspired. We don't really get seasons where I live, it's mostly Summer all year round (which is not as good as it sounds), so these basics are appropriate for all times of the year.
These are the most basic of the basics. Nothing is more simple than a slouchy grey T and straight denim skirt. The denim jacket is for cooler days or if I'm feeling in need of a 'Double Denim' day. The t-shirt was stolen from my boyfriend, the skirt is Wrangler and the denim jacket is vintage.
If you know me at all you'll understand that I cannot leave the house without a little colour in my outfit. The floral sunglasses and boots really add an aspect of fun to an otherwise bland ensemble. I found the sunglasses for a bargain of $15 on our recent holiday. The boots are vintage Doc Martens which I found on ebay four or five years ago, we've been inseparable ever since.

As much as I love the slouchy/casual look, I really am a sucker for collared blouses and tailored shorts. These items are on high rotation in my wardrobe, I wear them at least once a week and still can't get enough. The nude blouse is from Portmans and the blue one from Ally, the leather shorts and white jumper are both vintage.
These Prada Creepers are my go to shoes, not only are they incredibly comfortable but they seem to go with everything I own - I think I fall in love with these babies a little more each day. The sunglasses are Le Specs which I also bought on our recent trip, I think I'm at the beginning of a very large/dangerous sunglass obsession.

Keep a look out over the next few days as I have an exciting giveaway coming up!

  16. I used to hate those Prada creepers but of course whenever that happens after a few months I fall madly in love. Your black pair are amazing. I went for the Burberry creepers and I can't get out of them! Creepers are the best. xx, M

    Yeah I hear ya about summer all year round, I am from a coconut island back in the sea somewhere and after a while it upset me that I could not wear my leather jackets and my boots, so I left, hahahaha, plus there was no shopping to be done there unless you're looking for coconuts ;)
