I’ll be honest, today’s outfit is nothing groundbreaking. Rather it’s an easy and comfortable look that’s perfect for times when you don’t necessarily want to make a statement with your clothes. While that’s not me most days, sometimes, I just want to keep it simple—this was one of those days. And since this a personal style blog, I think you deserve to see all of my looks—from the super feminine, dressed up to the casual laid-back and everything in between.

Invariably, when I want to be casual, I tend to reach for some of my most worn and well loved pieces. After all, it’s only natural that you’d feel most at ease in clothes that you know well and feel confident in. So on this occasion I’m re-wearing my Zara paperbag waist trousers that you’ve previously seen here and a silk tank from Aritzia that’s an old favourite. I love a good silk top for it’s ability to be dressed up or dressed down and the one I’m wearing is no different.  Today I’m wearing it with khaki pants but I’ve also worn it in the past with white culottes for a more dressy look.

As for the rest, the white furla bag and the white loafers are my go to accessories for summer as they work with almost everything in my wardrobe. If you want to see just how versatile they are, I’ve worn both together in this very different look and they work perfectly regardless. Finally, what better way to finish off a summer outfit than with a straw hat and some classic black shades to block out the sun. My personal favourite are the Celine baby Audrey sunglasses which again, I’ve owned for a couple of years and would recommend to anyone for their classic shape and high quality. Mine still look brand new despite having been worn consistently through the years.

So there you go, I’m a fashion lover and as superficial as it may sound, clothes and dressing up do bring me joy. But sometimes it’s nice to pare it back—by my standards anyway, I’m never going to a simple jeans and tee kinda gal—and keep it simple for those days when you just can’t be fussed to make an effort but you don’t want others to know!
