Breton Stripes and Boyfriend Jeans


I love the classic simplicity of this outfit. It mixes a clean print with blue denim and gives that totally-put-together vibe but whilst being so effortlessly chic. This combination is great for this time of year, transitioning into Spring. What makes it even more of a favourite is the price. All three pieces in this outfit are from the high street and are very affordable

The Breton Striped Top never seems to go out of style. There are  so many variants of this kind of print, from thick striped to thin stripes, coloured stripes to monochrome. I love the thin navy horizontal stripes on this piece from New Look - it reminds me very much of Brigitte Bardot's casual chic look hereOn a side note, Bardot's makeup is also worth noting. It works so well with such a simple outfit like this one - a classic dark black winged eyeliner and smoky lashes with a neutral lip. If you're looking for an eyeliner recommendation check out this post.

The Boyfriend Jeans I've paired this top with are the Moto Blue Lucas Boyfriend Jeans from Topshop. I love these because they have a slim leg which is much better suited for a petite frame. I'm only 5'2 so this works well for me - I can still get the slouchy comfortable vibe from over sized jeans but without them swamping my frame. They have rolled up ankles which you can roll up or down depending on your height and preference. They really are the perfect pair of this jean style for me.

I'm really into the whole Pointed Black Pixie Shoe trend. I think it looks incredibly chic and classy - yet it can be hard to find flat pointed shoes which look as good as pointed heels do. I wanted this outfit to be wearable for everyday, and whilst I would LOVE to be able to wear heels every single day, it's just not practical for me. So, when I found these shoes in New Look, I was a very happy person. So happy I purchased two for when the first pair fall apart from wear. Unfortunately, they're out of stock everywhere now but there are some similar ones floating around. The have a gorgeous suedette pointed toe, and a chunky block heel 1.5 inch heel (so they're very easy to walk in). They add a little height but ooze class. Not to mention they finish this outfit off perfectly.
With a simple necklace or some plain stud earrings, this is my go-to outfit for Spring.

What's your favourite outfit this Spring?
