Back to Basics

tee - french connection courtesy shopstyle, culottes - ymc, belt - vintage, boots rocket dog courtesy barratts

Staying with my parents with all my stuff in boxes means I am the capsule wardrobe queen at the moment. I instinctively packed my favourite basics to take with me, focusing on things that can double up for work and weekends, like this French Connection tee, and it's really shown me what I miss and what I don't. 

I had originally packed up this belt in one of the boxes to go into storage, but missed it so much I ended up digging around through everything until I found it again. My jeans however got left somewhere in the depths of everything, and the only time I've missed them was on jeans for genes day the other week, when I was that awkward only person in the office not in jeans looking like they hate charity!

The boots are the only new things in this outfit, by Rocket Dog courtesy of Barratts and have replaced my beloved lace up winter boots which finally looks so old and broken I had to throw them out in the move. I like changing things up every so often, but my typical basics have remained the same for years - skirts and soft t-shirts, lots of navy blue and grey, black boots and a brown belt. As uniforms go I am pretty happy with that.

That's a pretty good work outfit I must say. I've never worked in a smart office type place and I think I would struggle, what do boys where that isn't black trousers and a shirt? Or is that the whole deal?

You look really well, no stress from the move?

I am always in awe of your more capsule wardrobe, I sometimes wish I could throw it all out and start again!
