Phew…what a week! I know it’s only a short one but it feels like it’s taken forever to get to this point, hence my lack of posts this week. Never the less I’ve made it, fueled by all the ‘Easter’ chocolate we have hanging around the house that is never going to see the light on Sunday.
I don’t know about you but I’m all about an easy wardrobe. I love the ‘oh this old thing’ look, which can actually take a lot of time to perfect, but once you’ve got it your wardrobe will be full of easy to wear basics that work with everything. That said as much as I am a jeans and tee girl through and through sometimes you just need something else to elevate your look to the next level. Clever accessorising, a change of footwear or my ultimate – the trophy jacket.
If you don’t have one trust me you need one, I’ve got more than I should admit to and they all get their fair share of wear. My love affair began a long time ago with a fantastic specimen from the Kate Moss at Topshop collection, the right amount of beading to give that boho Kate vibe but in silky fabric that gave it endless outfit opportunities. Just take a look at the inspo images below, this piece can go with everything from denim cut offs to your LBD on a night out.

One of my favourite places to hunt out a beaded or embroidered beauty is in H&M, I have found a couple of little gems in here all at great prices. Obviously if you go for something beaded it’s likely to cost a lot of than it’s embroidered sister, and if you have kids or maybe you’re just a little bit reckless with your clothes sometimes, you could end up losing the beads so have a think about what’s most cost effective, but at the prices most of these are below how can you resist? Go on, treat yourself to a trophy.
