what I wore today: perspex and stripes

my first outfit post of 2013... yikes! 

I'll put it out there; along with my love of shopping, trash tv & carbohydrates there's a special place in my heart for the bretton stripe! it's my no brainer outfit pick for casual days when raiding my wardrobe seems like a chore.

if in doubt I'll always throw on a navy & white stripy tee, some skinnies and a red lip for instant easy french chic (well as chic as I can look in my converse anyway.)

I fell for these isabel marant cowboy influenced boots in office a while back; I'm so glad I waited to buy them as there was 50% off them in the sale! needless to say I parted with my card details in a moment of discounted madness and counted down the days until they arrived ..hurrah!

I'm also a little in love with the christmas present that is my new perspex bag (I'm not much of a clutch gal, I tend to go for the cross body hobo style as I'm inherently a lazy pup and hate to carry anything!) it's definitely encouraging me to cut down on the amount of rubbish I cram into my bag on a daily basis... hello streamlined caroline, goodbye mary poppins!
