JACK WILLS STYLE TRIBES: CHELSEA SKATER

Dress & Shirt - c/o Jack Wills, Socks - H&M, Boots - Dr. Martens

I love it when sites fetch out their A/W style ideas - it's the kind of inspo you need when you're beginning to sort through your woolies and just end up thinking that you're going to spend the next 6 months dressed like the Michelin man.  This year, Jack Wills have come up with their 'Style Tribes' - a load of outfit options for different styles. I went for Chelsea Skater Girl - mainly because it's that grunge/girly style that I'm always a fan of. Plus, that style included a lot of tartan.. A/W for me is forever about tartan.

I popped the matchy-matchy shirt/dress combo with my favourite old Dr. Martens just because they can stop anything being too girly. I haven't worn them for ages, but I still go back to them over A/W for a comfortable boot that I know I can wear with just about anything. 

Head over to the Jack Wills Style Tribes section to see which you'd go for - I'm already obsessing over all the Mini Mod products.. Adding the skinny jeans & Chelsea boots to my Christmas wish list.

TARTAN & DENIM

Necklace - Accessorize, Scarf - c/o Boohoo, Top - Forever 21, Jeans - Topshop, Birkenstocks - c/o Sarenza

August isn't even over yet & I'm back in my cosiest of cosy scarves - this tartan piece from Boohoo. I got it last winter and wore it to death. It's essentially a blanket, so huge and lovely for snuggling up in. I know winter isn't quite with us yet, but it's nice to have something to sling round your shoulders if it does get a little nippy. 

The white jeans are the ones I got from Topshop at the start of the summer. I actually haven't worn them as much as I'd have liked to - I guess I am a bit nervy about being 'out there' in them, y'know? They aren't exactly the thing to go for when hiding lumpy-bumpy bits. I'm hoping I'll wear them over winter - I know, white doesn't exactly scream winter fashion - but I think with a big slouchy jumper I'll feel brave enough to wear them more.

FLORAL SHORTS & TASSELS

Hat - H&M, Jacket - c/o Missguided, Top - Forever 21, Shorts - c/o Missguided, Boots - Forever 21

Well this is as summery as it's going to get now - oh how I'm going to miss not having to worry whether or not tights look okay with an outfit! I really take for granted being able to get my legs out over the sunny season.. I love spending my life rolling about in shorts & little dresses - definitely need to move to LA or somewhere suitably hot & fabulous.

The shorts I'm wearing today are a pair I got at the start of the summer - they come with a matching top that makes a dreamy matchy-matchy combo. Today I've just worn them with a Missguided jacket I got a while back. It's my 'one day I shall take you to a festival' jacket. It's made for a weekend of music and sunshine, not my back garden.

WHITE OUTFIT

Sunglasses - Skiathos Town, Shirt - Charity Shop, Shorts - Primark, Slip Ons - Topshop, Bag - c/o Paul's Boutique

We're indoors - bear with the pictures, I'm working on getting used to this set up once again. I've just had a switcharoo with my room, meaning I've got a tiny bit more room to be taking pictures. What do you reckon to a change of scenery? I'll still go back to the outdoors when I get chance, but sometimes the weather's against me. In fact, most days the weather's against me. 

Today's outfit is 'I'm maximising the effect of this tan while I can'.. And how do you maximise your tan? Wear white. Well, I'm hoping that worked. I've grown to love an all white outfit for summer, it's kind of simple and no effort. Who wants to be faffing about too much when you're off out in sticky hot sunshine?
