I’ve been going through my photo archives and realised that there a lot of outfits that I’ve shared on Instagram but which have never quite made it to this little space. You can tell these photos were taken last year, because look how short my hair was! Social media moves so quickly, it can sometimes feels like The Very Hungry Caterpillar of content at times. Blog posts, on the other hand, take a while to write, edit and update. However, the slower pace and editorial format is something I really appreciate about blogging (and reading other blogs I love). In the fast pace world we live in, I want to keep this space as up-to-date as possible for you to refer to for style inspiration or just general enjoyment. As a middle ground, I thought I’d start an “outfit series”; a shorter form of blog post which shares a few sentences about the look and some outfit details. I hope they provide some style inspiration for you in between my usual more substantial posts about timeless style, slow fashion, and capsule wardrobes..
As for this look, you will have seen both this white top (a thrifted find) and these Manning Cartell Pants before (here and here). I love combining investment pieces (aka these trousers) with thrifted finds as I feel it adds to the uniqueness of a look and factoring in the cost per wear of these trousers, they would actually be quite reasonable as I’ve worn them a lot over the past few years. I love the tailored waist but relaxed, slouchy fit of the trouser legs have this way of being comfortable, but make me feel confident at the same time – a magic trick more clothes should master, I think. Combined, I love these two pieces create a casual chic outfit; something not too fussy, comfortable, but still put together – good for a running errands or a weekend brunch, don’t you think? Currently I only own red ballet flats so they were an addition to this outfit by necessity, but I like the hint of colour they add to this otherwise neutral look.

I’d love for you to let me know, is this an outfit you could see yourself wearing?
