I’m so glad it’s been warm enough again, mostly because sunshine and manageable heat to crack out potentially my favourite summer outfit ever, but also because I get to crack out one of my favourite outfits that’s got summer written all over it.
It’s a mish-mash two piece; the top is from WYLDR London via ASOS that I picked up on a whim last January, but didn’t have anything ‘appropriate’ to wear it with – I’m not quite ready to bring back the late 90’s/early 00’s low rise jeans with excessive mid-riff on display just yet thank you.
Then came along my favourite trousers ever from Mango, a nice mid-weight cotton with blue stripes and elasticated waist (yass) and despite being culottes, they hit my ankles perfectly (thanks to being 5ft 4). They’re also really high-waisted, which makes them perfect for wairing with a little crop.
Oh, and also pockets, great pockets.
I like how both are very different fabrics and patterns yet go together so well, and because of the shape and material I can throw on Converse and lace-up gladiators for a day look, or something fancy like my fave Matt and Nat Black heels in the eve (or if I want to feel super cute and stylish).
Of course this being my wardrobe, the items are sold out but if you’re looking for similar style inspo then Mango and M&S have had similar trouser options in so keep your eyes peeled!
One thing is for sure though, I love these pieces, and I love this outfit; I know everytime I wear it it fits well, looks good, feels comfy yet stylish, and will last a long long time in my wardrobe – true sign of an investment piece, even at a high street price!
I’ve been really thinking about my wardrobe a lot lately, and trying to buy more sustainable items – for those of you in the know, where are your favourite sources for organicly sourced pieces, be it recycled fabric or organic cotton? Let me know down below!
