Bohemian Prep Style Essentials

Striped Polo Ralph Lauren Shirt

Because one can never quite shake off your Prep school days. Polo Ralph Lauren pretty much fills your wardrobe and we LOVE Brooks Brothers though maybe can only afford Red Fleece. On top of your countless navy dresses you have an array of these shirts but the colour scheme remains consistent: navy, white, black, navy & white striped, red & white striped and possibly a pastel colour: pale yellow or baby pink. Naturally we all own one in baby blue. Other great places for basics: Hawes & Curtis for everyday shirts, A.P.C and Boden.

 

 

 

 

High waist Sailor Trousers

Stylish and oh so fiddly but soooo chic!
Continuing of with the sailor theme we do love our Breton Striped T-shirts. Summer holidays are likely to be coastal retreats in Newquay Cornwall; LA; South of France or really anywhere with a lovely sea view.

Bohemian Chic inspired ensemble. #OOTD

Hey guys!

So here is my outfit of the day/#OOTD. It is very loosely inspired by Kourtney Kardashian’s neutral tones as seen on Kourtney & Kim Take NYC. I loved her Gucci Fedora so much that I bought a similar one.                  See below. 

kkJpegThis dusty brown linen jacket is from Topshop-I have had it since I was 14! Back then it was £40. All the buttons and pockets are still functional-ha! Underneath is a shirt by Krizia Jeans in a neutral stripe of navy, light brown and subtle red. The shirt was from a thrift store but would usually retail at £60+.
JpegThis gorgeous cotton hand-woven tote bag gives the look an edge and thankfully it is fairtrade. Yay! It was produced all the way in Nepal. I purchased the tote online however this has sold out on http://shop.chrishaughton.com/ 😦 Check his site out anyway because he is an awesome talent! He is an illustrator and makes picture books JpegMy Fedora was from Peacocks and was only £8. I got this a long while back. I try my best not to buy clothing from such stores because cheap priced items usually mean poor conditions for the workers making the commodity.Jpeg

The awesome paisley trousers were on sale at Vera Moda at £16! The boots are by Espirit, £40.

So I hoped you liked this post on what I wear. Leave a comment below if you want to see more posts on my style and where I shop.
