(Jumper: & Other Stories (old-ish), Jeans: ASOS, Trainers: Superga, Bag: COS)

It's nearly the end of another busy week at chez Purvis, and you can bet your bottom dollar that although these snaps were taken last week- I'll be curled up in something very similar come today (with the addition of slipper socks, no doubt). Easy dressing (i.e pretending I'm as cool as Camille Rowe by throwing on a sweater and jeans) is my current number one favourite activity, and looks like these make it very easy to get dressed when things are too manic to consider any ~important~ sartorial choices. Plus with a backdrop this pretty (and a sighting of Andrew Marr to boot) who cares if 'off duty' is my new ~on duty~.

On top of that, isn't it amazing how one accessory can take an outfit from casual to (somewhat) considered. I impulsively picked up this bag last week whilst in Brighton, but there's something about the subtle shape (anything slightly retro hatbox inspired has me at hello) and suede detailing which got me reaching for my card, and even fooled me into thinking it was far more pricey than it should be, which is never a bad thing. C'est la vie indeed...

  2. Lovely sweater and I love the sneakers as well even though I'm a bit afraid of wearing white sneakers myself because they might get too dirty too fast.

  4. I LOVE that bag! I'd love to get something like that myself, but I'm always so worried that I'd ruin it immediately because it's suede. Maybe I should just take the plunge..!

  9. I love this whole outfit! Especially the jumper, although I love Winter coats I'm rather loving just being able to go out in a jumper without the huge coat!

  23. Sometimes simple outfits are the best! The jumper looks like great quality and super comfy. I like the touch of red that the bag adds as well, it's all very French - bleu, blanc, rouge ! ;)

  28. Such a fun and effortless weekend look. Red, Navy and White always create a winning combo. The choice of delicate jewellery (rings) is a perfect way to add to the outfit without detracting from it. Thanks for sharing!
