A Breton Staple

As you will have heard me say many, many times before…..everyone needs at least 1 breton stripe top in their wardrobe life! They are such a staple item (hence the title) and can be worked into almost any outfit. They can be worn for a casual look like I have opted here as I was just out to do a bit of shopping and a few jobs that needed doing, they can be made to look slightly more dressy by swapping the blue jeans for black rip knee jeans and the kicks for chelsea boots (you can see this look on my Instagram). These tops go with denim cut offs and flip flops in the summer months for a laid back vibe or tucked into a high waist skirt, whether its skater style and worn with ankle boots for a cute girly twist or a leather pencil skirt and some heels for an office to bar ensemble. The possibilities are endless!

UK_fashion_blog_ASOS_Topshop_New LookTop: ASOS // Skirt: Topshop // Shoes: New Look

I had to get ready earlier on this evening as we were going to a cliff top bar that over looks the beach and is probably one of the best sunset spots on the island. It gets pretty busy and since it was Sunday too there would be a lot of the locals there for drinks. This is the reason for my poofy hair which I had no time to style at all, it had been up until right before I took these pics which meant I had to just grin and bear it that it looked a mess here…apologies! This skirt has been on the blog before when I wore it for LFW, in a much colder climate may I also add. I love leopard print in all forms whether its a skirt, top, shoes or phone case.

Bag: Yes Style // Necklace: Primark // Watch: ASOS

I recently went to Greece for 10 days, the beautiful island of Corfu. This is the reason for my absence lately, I wanted needed a complete break from blogging. I did however take some outfit pictures while I was there so I could share them with you all when I got home. This was my first night there, I didn’t have much of a tan yet so I opted for jeans. This pretty top is one of my latest purchases and the scattered beading detail makes it glisten in certain lights which I love.

Now I know I have featured this skirt on the blog numerous times over the last few months but it is such a great skirt so no justification is needed. This time as the weather has turned colder I paired the scallop edge skirt with a grey jumper for a change. This means I can carry on wearing it throughout the colder months and then back to teaming it with crops and cami tops come next Summer.

High necks are my new favourite thing. They look so nice on with a pair of jeans and heels. I had sandals on here as these pictures were taken while I was on holiday. I have a few left to postt hat I recently found but forgot to blog. I don’t want them to go to waste so I am going to go ahead and post them anyway even though it was last month. It doesn’t matter though as this is an outfit I would wear here too but I would substitute the sandals for a pair of courts. I got this top a while back and have worn it so much. I love the high neckline and racer cut at the front and back, it also has a low V cut out section on the back at the top which adds a little something extra to the top.

Every girl should have a Breton stripe jumper in their wardrobe, along with a Breton tee. I am obsessed with them as I love the casual yet stylish vibe they give to a look. I wear my jumper and mutiple breton tees so much whether it’s with jeans for a laid back look or with a leather skirt and heels for a few drinks out with the girls. They are so versatile and work with s many outfit options and they don’t break the bank either as you can pick them up from almost anywhere.

I’m sure you can tell from my previous few posts that I absolutely adore anything backless and this certainly isn’t the last back baring piece I’ll be donning. I got this amazing blue Zara dress as a back up dress for a friends wedding a few weeks back. I ended up wearing a different dress but this one was way too beautiful to return so I decided to take it away on holiday with me instead.
