“I never thought I’d be a blazer and court shoe kinda girl”

My style is classically laid back, minimalist and simple. I like basic colours, with the odd pop of pastel pink or vibrant red. I tend to pick the more basic of structured clothes, clothes styles that have survived past the 80’s, 90’s and into the new millennium. I also like to chuck the odd trend and crazy piece in for good measure (and to perhaps laugh at in years to come – because isn’t that just the best part about fashion!) When Ted Baker challenged me to style up a pair of their shoes, of course I jumped at the chance, I love a good styling challenge and I love putting my own spin on things.

 I love how an item can really inspire an outfit, a way of dressing and show a different side to your personality. I never thought I’d be a blazer and court shoe kind of girl. You can’t beat a classic court and that’s what inspired this look, that you can all put your spin on. Every one looks amazing in a killer blazer, heels and great denim. Worn together or separately, they’re 3 total sartorial winners in my books, and here’s why they’re the 3 wardrobe classics that anyone can wear!

A killer, girl boss blazer

Now I’ve got to admit something here; I actually really enjoyed wearing blazers as part of my school uniform. I felt put together, chic and like I could achieve anything. This has stayed with me through to adulthood. (crap, am I really an adult?) Buttoned, embellished or colourful, whatever your taste, find a killer blazer that will carry you through the seasons. The trick is something beautifully tailored to really bring some structure to an outfit. Also, can you believe this one was from Primark?! You guys were loving it in my Primark Haul!

My Picks
Heels that can conquer the world

Finding killer heels is one thing, but finding killer heels that fit, are comfortable and carry you through lifes best moments are another. I’ve always loved Ted Baker for their unique, classic and elegant designs, whether that’s their dresses, bags or shoes, so it was absolute honour to work with them on this! This pair immediately caught my eye, I love the metal detail, the patent, classic look and the signature Ted Baker bow at the back!. The heel is also that perfect height to take you through day to night without any sore feet at the end! 

I’ve recently started to dabble with luxury fashion a bit more, as much as I love my bargains I do love the quality and longevity you get with designer brands. I find that Ted Baker is such a wonderful intersection of the two – quality, stunning designs with those other little touches you get with high end shoes but with a slightly more affordable price point. Meaning that you can have beautiful, comfortable shoes that will last you for years but without sacrificing any meals! I truly feel beautifully put together and confident when I slip on my fave heels, there’s something about that ritual of putting them on for us that is wonderfully satisfying and gratifying.

My Picks
Denim that loves your body

I’m sure we can all relate to the very real struggle that is finding the right pair of jeans. Skinny fit, flared, straight, boyfriend or cropped. Whatever your preferred fit, there’s nothing more satisfying than finding a pair that really love your shape! This pair were featured in my March Fashion Favourites and I absolutely adore them!

Much like heels, the right pair of denim can also carry you through all occasions, day or night, spring or autumn. With trainers, flats, sandals or platforms, dress them up or dress them down. Pick your fave shape of the season (I’m loving straight legs and frayed hems!) and then hunt down a great pair at your go to store. I love Topshop because of the different leg lengths available (holla to all your short girls!)
