This year i have worked hard to build a wardrobe of pieces that firstly i love and will continue to love, less of the passing fads, more longevity. And secondly pieces that can be easily worn time and time again for many occasions.
I have to say, this is the first year i have actually liked my wardrobe and had a lot less of the ‘I have nothing to wear’ scenario each morning. Yes i wear the same pieces a lot more, but i’m totally ok with that. I feel good in those pieces which makes me want to wear them again and again. And that means by my maths (which is horrendous by the way) that cost per wear is low and well worth some investment pieces through the year.
Take this navy dress:
Currently on sale for a whopping £25(!) and well worth every penny let me tell you.
Its a super flattering material that falls beautifully, skimming rather than clinging. It has a raw edge and a flattering V-neck, which i love.
I picked this up the sales and I’m so pleased with it. The quality (as always with Hush) is gorgeous, and the price tag is quite simply, a complete bargain.
Cost per wear on this baby will be in the minus pennies if i keep wearing it as much as i have lately.
Side note: i can not get enough navy this summer. Literally, i have bought SO many great pieces.. all navy, i have no idea why. I have to say its one of lifes great colours, it just goes with so much!
On to the outfits
For a night time look, I’m thinking meal out or drinks (rather than the other type of night time look, you know, sleepy time-night time, which in my case is mistmatched bushed cotton pj bottoms and hubbys tshirts, schexy i am not!)
I went for a navy and black smart look. I love navy and black together, then added in some gold accents for the finishing touches.
Black Heels: Primark
Jacket: George (Super old)
Then on to the day-time look.
It has to be easy going, so flats for running around are a must. I went for my simple tan sandals but i love the idea of wearing this dress with trainers, daps, sneaker type casual footwear and even some smart ballet flats or the ‘they’re everywhere right now’ lace up flats, i have an orange Boden pair which are just begging to be paired with this dress.
And then just the basics, a great tan bag and the summer staple: the denim jacket.
I added in a fun necklace too, ‘cos y’know, how i could i not?
Sandals: New Look
Denim Jacket: F&F
This dress has fast become a wardrobe staple that i’m super pleased to have purchased. From previously having a wardrobe full of useless items, i know i can always find something to wear now. Hell, i could even quit shopping, but seriously, who would help the economy then, huh? 😉
Have you bought any great remixable pieces this summer?
