My Go-To-Uniform Part 2 | White Skinnies & A Floral Pyjama Jacket
Okay, I have to warn you... these white skinnies are going to be on the blog a LOT over the next few weeks (or maybe longer). It's the perfect weather to wear them at the moment - spring like, but definitely not hot. I'm feeling a bit Liz Hurley, the amount I'm wearing them at the moment (I'm sure she never takes hers off, either).
So I've realised that my Go-To Uniform of skinnies, blazer and heels is a lot more prevalent in my daily attire than I thought: this is the second version after part one last week. This jacket was chosen for me when I went to a personal shopper at Debenhams a couple of weeks back; I was lucky enough to have been given a voucher with a whole load of treats attached (personal shopper, beauty consultation, manicure, tea and cake in the restaurant) as a thank you for some work I'd done for someone. I was a little hesitant about the personal shopper thing, but I didn't tell the lovely young lady beforehand that I had a style blog, and I pretty much gave her free reign.
Basically the personal shopping thing is a totally free service, and you're under no obligation to buy. But if they get it spot-on, then you've got yourself some great new pieces that you might not otherwise have chosen yourself. This jacket is totally me (soft blazer in a wild pattern ? er, yes please!), and although I did buy the pyjama-style matching pants I'll be taking them back unfortunately - only because of the fit (they could have done with being looser from the knee down). Shame - I would have loved a man-repelling pyjama pant suit.
So I came away with several pieces that I love, all to be seen on the blog in time... so thank you Rosie from Debenhams in Bath, you did a great job! I would definitely recommend it as a service to take advantage of (it's free), and who says us style bloggers get it right every time... I certainly don't!
Next week: I have a special week in store for you. Think vintage, for a whole week, starting Monday. In the meantime I have a couple more OOTD posts, maybe featuring my white jeans again. I did warn you ;)
(Anyone else obsessing over one particular item of clothing at the moment? Or tried a personal shopper? Let me know!)
