Blue Cream Basics.

I live for basics. In fact, you could most readily describe my entire wardrobe as a basics haven. Even when I do dress up to the nines and don my highest heels, there’s always still a sense of simpleness that comes from pairing basic pieces like a white tee, cut off shorts (which I must admit I’ve only recently become OBSESSED with), and striped dresses with canvas sneakers. Today’s picks really emulate my somewhat lazy style with: a striped navy dream from A.P.C., that I just so happen to won a similar design by Jack Wills; a cutesy mini bag in the much sought-after trapeze shape by Michael Kors; and finally the must have denim shorts, courtesy of Victoria Beckham. Check it out below.

Friday Foursome.

Yeah so the novelty of it being Friday may have worn off (unless you couldn’t tell today is Saturday), but that won’t stop me from celebrating a few of my new favourites that made my net-a-porter wish list.

Maiyet, Dagmar, Brit & Joseph

This week seems to have flown by at record speed and I can’t believe that it’s Saturday already. Anyway, I didn’t get round to sharing these with you yesterday, so here are my favourites from net-a-porter.

MAIYET

I love a turtle neck. In fact, I think I like any interesting neck detail that makes a change from the oh-so tradition crew, circle and V-neck garments. This uber snug cowl neck top looks so cosy I just want to mush my face in it through my computer screen. The cream colour makes this a timeless and classic piece; and it’s times like these that I’m reminded that I need to grow up fast so that I can afford to buy items like this.

DAGMAR

You really can’t go wrong with a simple black top, especially if it’s quilted. With an unpredictable summer coming up, something like this would be a great investment because of the half sleeves, making it ideal for both day and night when the temperature dips. I know I’m going to be keeping an eye out for something similar, so watch this space.

BURBERRY BRIT

There’s something about chambray that I can’t get enough of. I love the subtle and laidback nature of it, as well as the idea of pairing it with a similar (if not identical) shade of blue to create an iconic Canadian suit. While I’m not going crazy over the ruffle detail, I’m sure I can turn a blind eye just this once…

JOSEPH

I had a very similar blazer, only in black, which I don’t speak of anymore because it mysteriously disappeared after one wear. However, that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about it or craving it whenever I want to bring a look together with a classic finish. This Joseph incarnation makes me all kinds of happy, but reminds me of the love that I lost.
