May Favourites: Lace Crop Tops, Army Blazers & Saint Laurent
May was a bit of a funny month temperature wise with chilly weather and hot humid days that left us craving a dip in the pool so my monthly faves are all over the place. I was really happy to grab this army jacket from Zara recently and I’ve been wearing it with everything! I dress pretty casually for work and I think blazers and good shoes are so important to help bring my look together. It's amazing how a nice jacket can make a t-shirt and jeans feel instantly dressed up and more sophisticated.
This lace top has become such a favourite of mine that I had to go out and buy it in 2 colours. I know it’s a bit mental but when I really like something, I pick it up in every colour that I love and this just happens to be white and black. For a day time office look I layer a tank underneath to keep the look more conservative. For the weekends I ditch the undershirt all together and reveal some skin. Oh – and I should mention that every time I’ve worn this top I’ve gotten a million compliments everywhere I go. I think it’s safe to say this is a must have item for SS15!
On the weekends I wore my Zara gladiator sandals A LOT! They’re not appropriate for the office by any means so I keep these specifically for the weekends. I love the statement that they make with the most basic of outfits. I wish they were more comfortable and had been less expensive for what they are, but I have been wearing them so much that the cost per wear totally evens out. Mango and Aldo both have similar pairs if you’re looking for something less expensive.
Accessories wise I think it’s safe to say that I couldn’t get enough of my Saint Laurent Baby Sac De Jour. It’s small, easy to carry and really versatile, regardless of the blue and black colour blocking. It’s the kind of piece that makes every outfit look better and it’s been my best purchase this year.
