BLACK JEANS & JACKET

Sunglasses - Skiathos Town, Top - Forever 21, Jacket - Boohoo, Jeans - Levi's, Slip Ons - Topshop

I think this is one of my favourite smart/casual outfits, even if it is on more of the casual side. If I was off out, I'd probably just swap the slip ons for some strappy sandals to jazz it up. That's my go-to these days - if I'm going out I stick on jeans & some pretty heels.. Done. No faffing about with a dress that I'm pulling down all night (yeah, uni days - this happened a lot), or struggling with a playsuit that leaves me naked every time I nip for a wee. I'm not saying my party dress days are over, but I'm happy with casual evening outfits for now. 

Well that was a little ramble wasn't it? Anyway, I'll quickly mention the jacket. I've worn it on here before but it's recently become a 'more than once a week' item. Y'know, those few things that you wear so much that you worry people will think that you haven't washed them in-between. Yep, I'm queen of over thinking things. This jacket is one of them, along with my black skinny jeans and slouchy t-shirts. It's just a nice piece for popping on for work. Kind of smart without being way too fancy.

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.
