panel trousers

With layering season in full spring, it was only a matter of time that I was going to feature one of my go-to roll neck and shirt combo's on the blog. This particular shirt was thrifted last summer on one of (the many) goodwill pilgrimages. Me and my sister couldn't get enough of the bargains on offer, queue returning this June with empty suitcases in tow.  It may on the rail look like an ordinary 'work style' shirt but the styling combinations for such an item are virtually endless, and make it an item which can be worn all year round.

Checkered Trousers

Checkered trousers have been all over Pinterest for the past couple of months, and admittedly filling my 'pin boards' with heaps of style inspo. and basically fuelling a never ending wishlist. So when I came across these for a mere £12.99, accompanied with rave reviews, I thought it was about time that I made my pin board wishes come true. Besides adding a subtle hint of detail to my normal 'all black outfits' they are pretty darn comfy, dare I say peaking towards 'pyjama' level of comfort.

I have also switched up my footwear game as of late, as admittedly the blog has provided photographic evidence that I live in my ASOS buckle boots 99.9% of the time, and subsequently they are on the verge of falling apart - quite literally... I've been eyeing up the air force 1's for quite a while, despite not being a 'trainer wearer' which is probably due to the fact that I was 'scarred' against wearing any type of sportswear thanks to my school P.E lessons. These have got a certain something about them that kinda work well with a lot of my outfits. Also a lil' tip, I'm normally wear a UK size 6, but when I went to my local store I tried on a kid's UK5.5 and they fitted like a 6. But where £20 cheaper, *score*.

Ragged Priest Tartan Trousers

Layering has always been a styling technique that I frequently implement into my wardrobe pretty much all year round, but especially so during this time of year as the weather can go from a balmy spring day to being switched with heavy rain and a drop in temperature.

My go to combination at the moment is *hands-down* the t-shirt and roll neck combo, which (let's be honest) has seen me through the past couple of A/W seasons. It's also a great technique for those who want to 'pack light',  if you're popping away for a week or so (with similar weather conditions) as it is so easy to switch up outfits with a few key basics. If I ever went down the 'capsule wardrobe' route then the trusty roll neck and band tee would most certainly be two items which would be the ultimate staples.
