Winter Basics

"Lucie, you're an outfit repeater!" I hear you say. Yep, shock horror, I did wear this coat on my blog two whole years ago (lookie here) - but hey, recycling fashion is good for the environment or something, right? But just as I say in the post from two years ago, the coat is such a classic that it will probably never go out of fashion, and it hasn't! Bringing out the old classics and shaking them up a bit with a few accessories helps to create a different look without spending too much dolla.

I got this beautiful Casio watch for Christmas - it's great for those that prefer digital AND it even lights up so you can see it in the dark - snazzy or wuh? This 'bardot' dress (which I'm wearing as a top) is a purchase from Novem & Knight - a brand launched by my favourite blogger Samantha Maria & her partner Jason Davis. All the pieces are simplistic yet versatile, handmade in London with material of immaculate quality. Their pieces will be something that you'll have in your wardrobe for yonks - and that will go with every piece you already own. I can wear this dress day or night, tucked in as a top like above, tucked into shorts, a skirt, youuuuu name it.

I was on the hunt for a bag for university, one that held all my junk, looked good and felt comfy - none of that aching one-shoulder-bag nonsense. When I came across this faux leather beauty in Accessorize reduced to £25 from £35, it was a wee match made in heaven and I couldn't recommend it more as a bag for school or university! It fits my Macbook (13inch), charger, notepads, purse, book, agenda, bottle and more - I think it may be Mary Poppins' bag in fact. The jeans were a complete bargain from Topshop, originially £35, reduced to £15 on sale then I was told they were further reduced to £8 at the till - every poor students dream. This look kept me nice and cosy for a day on campus and in town whilst feeling stylishly prepared for the catwalk i.e. the streets of Liverpool.
