22.01.2012- What I Wore Today #7

Sunday, 22 January 2012

This post is a little bit sneaky as it's one I've put together in retrospect- I wore this outfit yesterday to meet a friend for lunch and some shopping, choosing something which has become something of a wardrobe essential for me since I bought it last year:

Breton Top- French Connection
Jeans- Topshop
Bag- Topshop
Coat- Topshop

This breton top from French Connection is probably one of the best investment buys I've ever made- although I thought it was on the expensive side at the time I bought it, it's been through the wash more times than I can remember and it looks no different to the first time I wore it. It's a real classic, and although I'm aware it makes me look a bit 'boxy', it has become the perfect go-to top for me if I don't know what to put on or if I'm in a bit of a rush (as was the case yesterday morning!) I threw on my trusty Topshop coat (another firm favourite!) in an attempt to keep warm against the freezing wind, and staple jeans for comfort more than anything else. I picked up this bag from Topshop in their sale too- I loved it when I first saw it online, but was reluctant to pay £55 for something which I knew I'd struggle to fit all of my 'essentials' (!) into. When I saw it had been reduced to £25 a few weeks ago, I wasted no time in snapping it up!

So there you go- an outfit which isn't particularly adventurous, but one which is a firm favourite nonetheless.

What are your wardrobe staples?

  1. You can't go wrong with a stripey top!
    I just bought a stripey dress from River Island and can't wait to pair it up with my battered old satchel and comfy shoes. Simple outfits can sometimes be the best xx

  2. What a lovely outfit. I have a slouchy grey jumper that pretty much goes with anything! Definitely my wardrobe staple.
