Rolling out of bed in to my sweat pants, hoody and Uggs is a habit I have struggled to break since my university days. Some mornings my cosy, soft, seriously faded bestie’s scream at me to put them on from their place on the shelf, especially when the weather is bleak like today. My reasons for avoiding my tatty old couch clothes when I know i’ll be heading out is fully explained in this post. So instead I opt for an outfit thats just as easy and still looks put together. This look is easily achievable, just find a pair of jeans, a tee and your favourite sneakers. Finish the look with an embroidered, boucle or printed statement jacket and you’re all set for looking chic at the school gates. Whats your go-to look when you’re in a hurry / can’t be bothered thinking about clothes / doing the school run? Let me know below… x

Happy Monday Peeps! Lets get straight to it. I had a total fashion flop this weekend. You know that feeling when you don’t know what to wear, have nothing in your wardrobe and feel like you’re in a bit of a style rut?! Well that was me. I’d packed away the majority of my winter clothes a couple of weeks ago, and realised what I had left was just not cutting my style mustard for the warmer weather. So I purged even more, getting rid (check my eBay later this week) of anything I hadn’t worn in the last 3 months. Then I sat down and worked out what I needed rather than wanted to round out my summer wardrobe. So now I have list of key capsule-esque pieces that I’ll be on the look out for over the next while. I found this pretty olive dress in Zara over the weekend that checked a box. The interesting cut out detail, pockets and un-summery colour mean this dress was a must have. I can style it many different ways for summer, both dressy and casual, come autumn I’ll layer it with a sweater, style it as a skirt, pair it with boots and so on. A truly versatile dress. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a look at some other pieces I am lusting after. What’s on your shopping list for summer?
