Last weekend I took a trip to Greenwich, for brunch with a friend, and couldn’t resist getting some snaps of my new outfit. I bought this blazer from Mango (via ASOS) and have barely taken it off since first trying it on. It’s made from a beautiful houndstooth patterned fabric, with tortoise shell print buttons. Along with the blazer, I also treated myself to a pair of tan coloured wide leg jeans from & Other Stories. This is my first purchase from them, and I absolutely love the colour and fabric. They’re a little higher price point than I would normally spend on jeans, but the price reflects their great quality, which I’m more than happy to pay for.
I accessorised my outfit with this beautiful navy strap watch from ADEXE London. I was very kindly gifted this watch to share with you all, and I couldn’t be happier to do so. If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll knot that I love watches more than any other accessory. It’s rare that I’m seen without one on my wrist. In fact, I feel lost without one!
I rarely use my watches for the time, as I tend to use my laptop or phone for that. Instead, I wear a watch as a form of jewellery and love to accessorise my outfits with one.
Despite owning almost 15 watches (yes, 15 – I told you I had a thing for them), I’ve never own a navy blue leather strap one. I feel in love with this petite blue design by ADEXE called ‘Meek‘. It’s made from genuine Italian leather, with a gold coloured stainless steel case and white face.
The numbers on this watch face are also different to any other watch I own, with Roman numerals instead. I love this about the watch. It gives it a more traditional style, which works perfectly with a blazer.
Luckily the weather last weekend was warm enough to wear the blazer alone, with a t-shirt underneath. I have a feeling this will become my go-to outfit this spring season. It’s the perfect jacket for taking an otherwise casual outfit and dressing it up a little. It also helps with the change in temperature, taking the outfit from day to night seamlessly.
What’s your go-to outfit or inspiration this season? Have you purchased any new bits to update your wardrobe this spring?
