(Top: C/O Petit Bateau, Jeans: American Apparel, Shoes: Charlotte Olympia, Bag: C/O Vivienne Westwood via Sarenza, Watch: C/O Olivia Burton)

Although outfits like this one will never be the most original or mind blowing, it's sometimes the simplicity of an outfit that makes me love it- and if you ever ask me what my go to outfit would be- it will always be a striped t shirt, jeans and a slick of lipstick. Additionally, matching your bag to your make up is completely optional- but with Sarenza having a pretty nifty new SS14 collection, how could I not with this bag?! Plus, can we do a small cheer for the fact that a coat wasn't necessary too? I'm still coming round to the fact that I may be able to put my big fluffy numbers away until September, and only need a leather jacket for 'cold' days- but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Anyway, this little get up was worn on a recent visit to Borough Market for some lunch time supplies (read: focaccia and chocolate brownies) before hopping on the train home for a cosy afternoon of soup, The Simpsons and relaxing- sometimes it really is the simple things that makee the world go round.
