Uniform

Monday, 30 July 2012


Whenever I feel like I don't know what to wear, I just whip out my uniform.
Simple black trousers, a light coloured top and easy accesories. Voila!
I'm in the process of revamping my wardrobe, adding new things and saying good bye to some old!
I'm currently into pieces that can give me more than one look and this knit jumper is such a piece! I love the texture and shape of it and I know I can style it as often as I like! :)

Anyone been keeping up with the London 2012 Olympic games? I'm strangely fixated to it!
Kind of proud of my boys for getting Bronze in the Men's Gymnastics today. Go Team GB! ;)

Jumper : Topshop
Trousers : Mango
Heels : Zara
Bag : Marc B, Topshop (In Red)
Necklace : H&M

Oh you look so lovely and perfectly put together! I especially adore those heels! I've become a bit obsessed with the Olympics, despite having no interest in sport at any other time of the year!

You look so lovely! This is my uniform as well, but just swap the heels with my oxford choice of the day. Gotta love the classic looks, so easy to put together and appear polished at the same time.

Trinnah said...

I love this! :) It's simply chic, and I like how simple it is to put together, but you absolutely knock it out of the park with the accessories. It's so classic. :) Definitely a great "uniform." I've been trying to revamp my closet by getting more versatile pieces, too. I've been trying to keep up with the Olympics after work. I try not to read the results ahead of time since they always show everything hours late over here. LOL. My dad always ruins it for me though because he tells me who won while we're watching the replay. Haha!
