Style Inspiration: Casual Everyday Denim....

For the next month  I will be focusing on  finding some good, everyday versatile pieces that can be bought now and worn again later as part of a new A/W capsule closet .... I think basic denim is always a good place to start and one piece I already own and love is this chambray tunic I bought from Tesco whilst grocery shopping one morning in Spring!:) It has been worn over cropped trousers, full length jeans and even as a dress with coloured tights as seen here the first time around :)


Although I would imagine this style is well gone now, I have found a lovely replacement one below from Phase Eight which is still in stock and also on sale at the moment. I made up a collage as to how you could style it .... both for a warm end of summer day and the cooler Autumnal ones which are ahead, or as in our case around most of the time!!

Sandals/Steve Madden  Bag/Whistles  Shorts/J Crew  Tunic/Phase Eight   Jeans/Miss Selfridge

The shops are full of coloured jeans also at the moment and I love that berry colour as seen above! I have already purchased a blue pair from Penneys/Primark and will pick up another in this tone, as they are a fabulous fit and fantastic value at 13 euro !! Add in some gorgeous jewellery and scarves and you have a lovely complete outfit for the new season! Woolly tights and boots may appear at a later stage to stretch it even further:)

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend:)

  8. Love this compilation. I just went to have a nosey for the denim tunic but none left in my size! I love the simplicity of this one as it's very Margaret Howell /APC but at much friendlier prices.

  11. With burgundy being the hot color for fall, I can't wait to continue the colored skinny jean trend of summer with a pair of burgundy skinny jeans for fall! Those will be one of my first fall purchases :) Loving your denim tunic idea!
