A Prince of Wales check blazer has definitely emerged as the "It Blazer" during this wishy-washy period of summer and is set to continue it's streak well into autumn. Not working in an office with a strict dress code means that I often forget the chic sartorial edge throwing on a blazer can immediately lend to an ensemble, it's a refreshing change of outerwear to my usual choice of cardigan or leather jacket. For me, the easiest way to style a blazer day to day is to wear it over a casual outfit such as a simple jeans and t-shirt combo, to steer it away from looking too "business woman". I've even seen other girls elevate it to nighttime over a strappy LBD so it really is quite a versatile piece. I've gotta talk about this slogan tee, which I pulled out of my stash as I was looking for a plain white tee (that I apparently never had as I am the worst when it comes to basics). It's pretty tongue in cheek and I was surprised to have been stopped by not one, not two, but three strangers – and here's the thing, they all seemed over the age of 55! Not that there's anything wrong with that but I was just taken aback by this demographic, one man even did a double take as he walked past and asked if he could read my shirt! I felt like I was offending these baby boomers too as they squinted at my chest. Soz. Last but not least, these boots! As someone with wide feet, I really appreciate that ASOS are expanding their 'wide fit' range of shoes. These bright red boots make a real statement and have once again proven that I can't resist a good Western style buckle detail. The Chloe Susanna should be quaking, there's a brand new buckle boot in town, yee-haw.
