I chose a clearance satchel bag to keep costs down, but I think a bit of messy stitching would add to its character. I had to include the firm festival favourite of the 'khaki green canvas, biker-style jacket with leather sleeves'. I love it! It is one of those rare pieces that goes with everything, affordable and can be worn in any season.
FIRST DATE - blazer (topshop), top (topshop), trousers (topshop), shoes (new look), clutch (asos), casio (ebay) = £195.48
I'd like to think this a 'ready' date outfit in the evening. If you've got no idea where he's taking you, a meal or cocktail bar, it's ready for both, you can always swap the heels last minute to go for comfort! All you need to add is a bit of lippy and a dab of smelly. I adore the trousers! You can also wear them with brogues for work, sandals in the park, and court shoes for afternoon tea with your nan. Perfect for all seasons. Bargain.
|OFFICE - shirt (topshop), blazer (topshop), trousers (zara), shoes (new look), casio (ebay) = £157.48|
Chiffon and lace shirt + high heels = executive glam rock. I love the shirt! It gives a nice feminine touch, and could be dressed up or down.
|OUTDOORS - casio (ebay), tee (etsy), leggings (topshop), hunters (amazon), bag (cambridge satchel) = £158.18|
The problem with 'crazzzyyy' leggings is that they can make you look like you are trying to be 'crazzzzyyy'. The look should actually be as nonchalant as possible - a bit like Kate Moss' just-got-out-of-bed hair that is clearly very considered. This is where a simple tee and wellies come in handy. Geronimo. I'd wear this taking my dog for a walk along the shingly beach and stopping off on the way back for some sherbet lemons at the corner shop.
|PARTY - top (topshop), shoes (zara), clutch (asos), skirt (zara) = £177.98|
Really debated over this skirt. Wasn't sure if I should include something I wasn't on 100% on myself with you guys, it might just be one of those 'fun' things in your wardrobe that never sees the light of day. However, I went with it, I think it was the cost (£79.99) that put me off but hypothetically on this challenge I had £200 for each outfit. I like the clash of prints of the clutch and skirt, and textures of the velvet, chiffon and lace.
