As you might have guessed, I'm definitely the kind of girl who likes to plan her outfits. It's a subconscious reaction that happens in my mind as soon as I make plans to do something. Uni? I know where my best jeans are. Drinks with friends? That two-piece that I love. A date? I have that new dress I bought last week. Sorted.

Fashion is amazing but if I'm honest it can completely hold me back sometimes. My obsession with style kills my spontaneity! If somebody says 'Lets go out tonight!' it puts me into a slight panic mode. I have no clue what to wear. 

Thats where staples come in. The basics. Those timeless pieces that are the foundation of our wardrobes. Style saviours. 

A tartan scarf. A trench coat (Topshop, of course. But one day Burberry... you will be mine). Red Dress. Black bag.


For those days when you can't be bothered to be creative - or even think - this is a fail safe formula. Effortlessly chic and timeless. 

Plus there's something so quintessentially British about this outfit that's perfect for Spring walks along Chelsea Embankment. 


  1. I plan my outfits sometimes, too. Great dress, I might need a red one :)

  2. I'm a sucker for planning my outfits too. Especially when going out! X

    I am exactly the same. I put things together in my head and don't try them on until the event comes and it can sometimes not look how I thought it was and then I panic. You look great as always!

    I love this outfit. I should plan my outfits more, because when I don't I'll just end up wearing the same thing every day, a simple shirt and jeans, whilst I have so many more clothes to wear.
