The Navy Tunic




Sunglasses: ASOS
Necklace: COS (similar)
Tunic: House of Sunny (similar)
Jeans: Weekday
Shoes: Zara 

Ever have one of those pieces in your wardrobe that you love but just never wear? This House of Sunny tunic is that item for me. I've had it for about two years and probably worn it twice in that whole time (I think it's the slit and the fact it's lacking sleeves) but haven't been able to part ways with it. 

I've managed to find love with it again though, wearing it backwards over jeans to avoid that awkward midriff-bearing situation. And it's firmly back on my favourites rail again.

Elevated Basics



Sunglasses: ASOS
Scarf: Hermes (similar)
T-shirt: c/o Barbour
Jeans: Weekday
Clutch: Etsy (similar)
Flats: Zara 

A rare sunny day in Manchester called for a couple of weekend staples (blue jeans, white tee - the softest - from Barbour), made a little bit more special with a couple of additions. I bought these Zara flats last week and they were well worth the buy - the leather is buttery soft, which together with the cut-out opening at the top, makes the basic flat that slightly more elevated. As an extra touch, I added this red and white silk Hermes scarf, tied down the back for a simple yet effective statement.

Tunic over Trousers



Dress: Zara
Trousers: Zara
Shoes: M&S 

A classic 'me' outfit: dress over trousers, flat backless mules and a loose silhouette. But sometimes you can't really go wrong with the classics and there's a reason you keep coming back to certain looks and items time and again, so I'm not complaining that I have a bit of a style uniform. 

I've been trying to cut down on buying new clothes recently (although truth be told I've been rather uninspired by what's on offer at the moment) but this Zara dress was a bit of a no-brainer. It's one of those pieces you can wear on its own, or layered, as I've done here - and I'm all about that cost-per-wear.

The Summer Mac



Jacket: Native Youth (similar)
T-shirt: ASOS
Trousers: COS
Flats: M&S

As usual, Manchester doesn't know what to do with the weather, throwing my entire wardrobe into question. This Native Youth mac has proved somewhat of a saviour for those days when sun and rain come in equal measure, especially when paired with loose pieces like this simple grey tee and relaxed tailored COS trousers. A pair of slip-ons are never far away for me either, and this M&S pair have become new favourites.

Wide Leg Trousers and Grey Tee



T-shirt: ASOS
Belt: ASOS
Trousers: Uniqlo
Converse: Coggles 

These wide leg trousers from Uniqlo have got a lot of airtime from me over the past few months, but they're one of the easiest (and comfiest) things to wear. I wore this look to the opening of the new Footasylum store in Leeds last week, opting to wear them with a simple grey tee and trusty Converse 70s, adding a belt to create a bit of definition in an otherwise-loose silhouette.
