Leopard Coat and Striped Top Outfit Leopard print coat and striped top Monochrome Bag
(Coat: C/O Next, Top: American Apparel, Jeans: Cheap Monday via BANK, Shoes: Zara, Bag: Topshop, Ring: C/O Love Hearts and Crosses)

You know on occasion girls will talk about their 'go-to' outfit, or complete 'staple' pieces? The items they turn to in times of bad hair days, I've-eaten-too-much-cake days and down right lazy days? Well these black jeans and striped t shirt would be my answer. The thing about a good Breton striped top and a pair of comfy jeans that I love, is how easy they are to customize. I don't mean with safety pins and fabric paint (although my 13 year old Art Attack and Avril loving self wouldn't mind) but how with a slick of red lipstick and a messy 'hive- an oh so simply outfit can make you feel a little like a cool sixties film character (the operative word here is feel) and I'm sure that can only ever be a good thing.
Leopard Coat and Striped Top Outfit Love Hearts and Crosses fox ring Zara monochrome loafers Teamed with this awesome leopard coat from Next (yup, they really have got some amazing things online at the moment), my mannish Zara loafers and matching huuge Topshop bag (my laptop is a little bulky, ok) I think it equates to one of the most wearable, easy outfits you can think of- and you know what? It won't go out of fashion either.

and here's what I wore...

  27. I love how big your handbag is! If I could have all of my bags that size, I'd be ridiculously happy.

    You look great from top to bottom. Clever details can make any seemingly simple staples look wonderful. A red lip, careful accessories and outerwear are always a good way to go. I especially like your shoes.
