The leoaprd print coat

 Coat - Vila
Top - Primark
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Dolcis
Wishbone Necklace - Astrid & Miyu
Triangle Necklace - Orelia

I seem to be all about the wardrobe classics this week, don't I? Another one for me is a leopard print coat. There's just something about them that I can't get enough of. A little it glam, a little bit grunge, a little bit chic. This one's a classy number, with a chic cut and work-wear blazer feel. It's the perfect coat for this mixed-up weather we've been having too because it's not too warm to throw on as a cover-up when the Autumn chill starts creeping in! 

For those of you who haven't heard of Vila before, they're fast becoming one of my go-to stores for classic staples with a modern edge and a scandinavian feel (a la Zara). Definitely check them out if you've never browsed their site before - you'll find tons of purse-friendly pieces!

The classic stripe

 Dress - Vila
Jacket & Necklace - H&M

If you ask me, there's one thing you can't beat in any girl's wardrobe, and that's a classic breton stripe. The Chung knows it, and I know it too - stripes are just one of those things that have always been a classic. For me they are a failsafe option for those "I have nothing to wear" days, super easy to throw on and look chic with as little effort as possible. I'm too embarassed to count how many striped tops I actually own, but I can tell you now that it's a lot. And now thaks to this cute Vila number it looks like I'll be branching out into striped dresses too! I love the easy shift shape and the red stripe gives a great pop of colour. Throw on a classic biker jacket, and you're good to go.

Casual weekend

 T-Shirt - In the Style
Shorts - Vila
Trainers - Nike via Hoodboyz
Jacket -
Rucksack - Breaking Rocks

I'll admit, I never used to be much of a trainers girl. The odd pair of converse, maybe...but I could never seem to figure out how to wear full on trainers with an every day outfit. That's all changed recently though (especially since I discovered how much comfier it is to wear nikes all day instead of normal shoes) since it's become acceptable to whack on a pair of trainers with any outfit you can think of! This look is a little bit gymwear-y but I still love it. Perfect for a casual weekend and super comfy too! I think this might be my bank holiday uniform! Now I want to get a pair of statement trainers in every colour to add to my collection! What do you think of today's look?

Life in monochrome.

Dress - Coast
Jacket & Necklace - H&M

Now that it's not quite so sunny, my work wardrobe has quickly slipped back into monochrome. Some might call it boring, but there's something so great about black and white that just makes it easy to throw on. The newest addition to my mono-wardrobe is this beautiful dress from Coast, which is just perfect for a day in the office. It's from their new Autumn/Winter collection but it's actually really good to wear for this in-between season with bare legs and little boots.I love the slouchy style of it and the monochrome grid print is just awesome! I wore this to work last week and so many people commented on it - a sure sign of a good dress choice, I always think!
