shirt - lacoste, skirt - topshop, belt - vintage, shoes courtesy bertie
This is the first outfit in a while I have felt really inspired by. It's possible that this is just because the skirt is new (bought with some vouchers I've had waiting to be spent for a while, so no breaking the spending ban!) and I can never resist the lure of shiny things, or because it fits with the slightly more classic, grown up style I've been interested in for a while.
Every so often I feel that urge to throw out 90% of my wardrobe and 'invest' in classic pieces that I'll wear for years. The problem is I suspect I am just as interested in the 'investing' bit as the 'classics I'll wear for years' bit, and I don't think that once I have that perfect capsule wardrobe that will necessarily stop me lusting after new things!
I definitely do have items of clothing I have had for years and expect to wear for many more to come, but they are often not the expensive things I've bought, but the breton t-shirt I got on sale on a whim, or the topshop summer dress I wear every year. I have high hopes that this skirt will be one I love and keep wearing for a long time though.
When it comes to clothes are you a classics person, or a 'buy on a whim' type?
