Stripes & Boots

Blouse – H&M

Leggings – Miss Selfridge

Boots – Kurt Geiger

Lipstick – Revlon

Is it just me, or does anyone else have days when they just aren’t feeling very creative and struggle massively to put an outfit together? Sometimes none of the clothes I put on seem to work with each other and finding jewellery and belts/scarves to match just all seems a bit too much…so this is where I think loud and bold prints come in so handy, because they do all the work for you! Polka dots, stripes and prints are often so eye-catching alone that you don’t need to faff around for ages trying to find things to match – you can just go with plain black and let the pattern show off.

That’s what I love about this stripy blouse from H&M, it’s quite a bold, eye-catching print and literally doesn’t need much else to go with it. On days where I’m struggling to do anything properly, let alone put a good outfit together, it’s so much easier to just throw on a top like this with trousers and boots and boom, the outfit is done! I definitely think at least a few bold printed items are a must-have for your wardrobe because not only can they be so gorgeous, but they can be an amazing solution to an outfit crisis. I definitely think less is more sometimes, so its not always necessary to go mad with accessories, plain and simple can be ok too!

These KG boots are honestly life-savers because they just go perfectly with anything and are so lovely and warm for the winter. If anything I’m wearing them way too much at the moment because the heels are starting to wear down, argh, but they definitely cost me enough when I bought them on a mad whim last year, so I’m determined to get my moneys worth. This definitely isn’t the warmest outfit for winter, but it’s get for just bumbling around indoors or running errands (with a coat on, of course). I definitely you think you could wear this blouse to work under jacket with a smart skirt or trousers, it’s pretty versatile…as long as you don’t wear it with polka dot trousers 🙂
