Updating my basics…

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’m a basics kind of girl. I spend at least 6 out of 7 days a week in a pair of jeans normally teamed up with a breton stripe or a some sort of knit but with spring finally here it’s time to look at stepping away from the knitwear and start introducing a few new every day basics. 

Something I always invest in at the beginning of spring is a linen Tee. I love how they look and wear and they go with pretty much anything from jeans to leather skirts. Here are a few of my favourites…


H&M Tee in a linen blend £12.99


J Crew V neck pocket linen Tee £18


ASOS Linen mix Tee £10

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect white shirt. I have a couple in my wardrobe that haven’t withstood the wash and have lost their brightness so it’s time to say bye bye! I love an oversized white shirt with distressed denim, so easy to throw on and always looks effortless. Here are a my picks…


H&M Resort Shirt £19.99


Next Casual white shirt £22


French Connection Oldenburg Shirt £50

I already own 3826388 pairs of jeans and I love each and every one for completely different reasons but as they are my go to uniform it cant hurt to own another pair or two can it? In spring summer I tend to step away from the skinnies and reach for my ever faithful boyfriend fit. My favourites are my vintage 501’s but this year my head has been turned by the high waister. Such a flattering fit and perfect for hiding the mum tum. Here are what I’ll be shopping for…


H&M Relaxed high waister £34.99

Vintage high crop jean £34.99 (limited sizing online)


Topshop Moto Raw hem straight leg jeans £40

How could I not include a little Breton stripe, an absolute essential in any wardrobe! I know this will be my go to on my ‘I’m not sure what to wear today’ days…


Boden Breton top £25.20  (normally £28)


Hush Tara dress £55


H&M Breton dress £13.99


H&M Breton Tee £9.99

And finally a black blazer. Along with my biker jacket a blazer is one of my most useful pieces come spring summer. I have a gorgeous grey one from Jaeger which I adore but my wardrobe is missing a black one so here are a few options I’ve got my eye on…


Hush black jacket £75


Topshop Ruched sleeve blazer £49


Zara jacket with pearl detail £75


H&M fitted jacket £34.99
