So in all the revision mist and endless notes, I’ve deprived myself from posting on here and straight down concentrating. Oh student life. However I couldn’t resist and here I am. Recently I have been in favour for simplicity. Easy and you don’t have to spend ages co-ordinating or rushing to find shoes to match that crazy, pineapple print. Simple clothes are limitless. 

This took me back to last summer, when I was first starting out and less confident to experiment with clothing and in fact these are some of my favourite looks. I’ve picked two completely different looks for this post to compare how simple clothes can look totally different when paired with more ‘simpler’ jewellery. 

Above was shot by talented Cansu and  this was the ‘real serious’ blog shoot for Notes La Mode. We laughing, relaxed and explored Hyde Park in search of those perfect locations. A gift given to me was my thift necklace from Amsterdam in pastel blue, this worked well with a simple long black dress from Laura Ashley and a summer floppy hat I found from a nearby store in Chelsea. 

No patterns, just simple colouring.  This may have been the quickest thing thrown together and this can be done on a daily basis. (For us fashion bloggers, this is a huge bonus!) The great thing about this look, it was acceptable for evening wear too and cheeky cocktail’s before catching the train. 

The photographs shot below by Robyn Marks channel a classic look with my hand-me-down Jumpsuit and American Apparel floppy hat. This again was a thrown on, for a first shoot my thoughts were.. ‘Definitely playing this one safe.’ But it worked. Colour isn’t always eye capturing and simple basics can be just as flattering, if not more elegant. 

I’d love to see YOUR basic looks, tag me on instagram or blogger comments to share your effortless outfits!
