Today’s look combines a little bit of everything that I love right now. Relaxed skinny ripped jeans against a crisp white shirt and to complete the look – a wooden watch. This casual style outfit is very much my idea of a simple street style look. Simplicity at its best as I really don’t want to waste my weekends getting ready and over-accessorising so I appreciate a minimalism and cleanliness at the moment. I don’t think I’ve become lazy, just a little bit comfortable.
Every spring I find myself in a dire need of a new crispy white shirt. I love love love any style of white shirts as I find there’s something about them, they’re elegant, chic and bang on trend! You can actually see my obsession in blouses in all my recent outfit posts.
The best advice I can ever give you is to invest in a good cotton white shirt and you cannot go wrong. You will be rocking this baby any season – layering it in the winter (don’t thank me for this tip, just send me a cheque). I’ve recently invested in this River Island white tie cuff shirt as I fell in love with its sleeves. It’s daring, it’s cute and it’s stylish. I can wear in on my weekends with ripped jean for a casual style and I can still style it with a culottes to achieve a ideal work wear outfit.
I think the older I get the less I opt out for the latest fashion trends, instead o tend to go for comfort and a timeless style. I think my days of an obsessed fashionista are way behind me and I’m now looking ahead towards days where an experience counts more than the time I would spend in front of a mirror getting ready. I want to feel comfortable and I want to be myself.
This has manifested in a way I choose not only my outfits but accessories as well. I would like my wardrobe to be better quality, timeless, unique and classy.
I paired the outfit with neutral accessories – the JORD watch, my latest addition. And YES, they are made from WOOD! I’m a BIG fan of statement accessories – they can elevate ANY outfit. Now that sunnier days are ahead of us, I’m glad that statement accessories are back on the radar and I can showcase them any time.
So…Buh bye fluffy coats and oversized jumpers, hello long necklaces, wooden watches, bracelets and statement rings.
I adore unique accessories and statement watches – any color, any shape, the bigger the better! Originality is what counts here. I find the JORD wooden watch goes with pretty much everything you’d ever want to wear. I’ve picked one fro the REECE series, walnut and navy watch and I’ve done well if I can say so myself. Do you fancy yourself a new wooden watch too?
