SATURDAY STYLING: LAYERS AND LACE UP FLATS

What I'm Wearing:

Polo Neck: F&F Clothing at Tesco
 Waistcoat: Topshop
Trousers: Zara
Lace Up Flats: New Look
Bag: Marks & Spencer

Last weekend I was lucky enough to shoot my latest outfit post in a photography studio which felt very glamorous compared to shooting outside my front door. The photography is by David Lester.

 If there's two things I can't stop wearing at the moment it's 1) polo necks and 2) layering everything up to keep off the chill so this look pretty much sums up my current look.

Working in fashion means I'm constantly updating my wardrobe but with the news that I'm going to be moving down South, I'm having to be good and save my pennies for a house, which means I'm having to get the most out of my key pieces!

My cream duster coat by & Other Stories is perfect for Spring as it goes with everything, but it was a bit of a risqué buy as sometimes I'm too scared to wear it because I'll get it dirty, but it's still a great statement piece to have. I think it would perfect with a loose grey tee, ripped skinny jeans and pointed courts so that's a look I'm hoping to covet soon! You can find a similar style here.

I'm getting an unhealthy obsession to polo necks at the moment but I just can't help it because they go with everything! I like tucking them into trousers, skirts or pairing with skinny jeans and a blazer. I can't help thinking they look really classic too, plus they're great for layering. This one in camel is from F&F at Tesco and was an absolute bargain. You can find a similar style here.

Long-line tailored waistcoat's are perfect for the transition into Spring and really take the edge off cooler days. This black style from Topshop has been my go-to layering piece for teaming with dresses, tops and blouses. 

Printed trousers are also a favourite trend of mine as they can be worn in so many ways. This pair from Zara work well for work and weekends and I love teaming this pair with heels and fringing for a more fun evening look. You can find similar styles here.

My snake print bag is an old Marks & Spencer's find and I've worn it tonnes. The snake print finish is a nod to the Seventies trend whilst the size is perfect for all my everyday essentials..well almost!

Last but not least are these amazing lace up flats by New Look which you can find here. Working in London a lot means flats are an essential so I was over the moon to find this lace up pair with gold heel detailing. Lace up flats are a huge trend at the moment and I'm looking forward to wearing this style with culottes and bronzed legs in the summer!

What do you think of today's look?
