M&S Suit Four Ways

Workwear. He wears: suit courtesy marks and spencer, jumper - marks and spencer, shirt, tie and shoes who knows - James isn't good at remembering things like this! She wears : suit - all saints, tee - french connection, shoes - schuh

Something a bit different for today! Marks &Spencer asked me to take part in their new campaign 'One Suit Four Ways  - Styling The Man In My Life' using one of their M&S £99 suits. Although James pretends to be camera shy, he definitely got into the art of posing pretty quickly - I think he's a natural fashion blogger in the making! He chose a dark pinstripe easy care suit, as it was the most versatile in colour and he's absolutely terrible at looking after his clothes, so easycare was definitely the way to go!

The four looks we went for were work, winter, casual and party. Of course I wasn't going to let a chance to be in the photos myself pass me by, so I jumped in as well! I have never really taken photos of more than one subject before, so it was definitely a bit of a challenge for me. Especially trying not to just pick all the photos where I look good (the usual way I decide which photos end up on the blog!), but thinking about James as well!

PS in the interest of full disclosure this blog post is an entry into a competition to win a £250 shopping spree for James, which let me tell you he desperately needs as he has managed to get paint on actually every single piece of clothing he owns during our house renovation. So it's an altruistic blog post, really!

Winter. He wears: suit courtesy marks and spencer, jumper - john lewis. She wears: coat courtesy next, scarf - primark, shoes - rocketdog courtesy barratts

Casual. He wears: suit jacket courtesy M&S, shirt Ted Baker, jeans - goodness only knows. She wears - dress courtesy tesco, boots - rocketdog courtesy barratts

Party. He wears: suit courtesy marks and spencer, santa hat courtesy my work christmas party. She wears: dress - asos, shoes - bata

Such a cute post, I love his model pose in the santa hat! Also love your red coat, Harriet. Hope James manages to win some nice, new clothes. As a fine art graduate I know how sad it is to have paint on all your clothes!

This is adorable and such a great idea, lovely to see your man and he looks rather snazzy in this suit. Good choice!
