Although we're heading out of Summer (eh? Is it over already, I hear you ask!), the British weather does like to keep us on our toes and I often find that September is usually one of our best months, so I tend to hold back a few of my favourite Summer staples until the end of that month, before packing them all away for A/W. One of my favourite staple pieces from this "Summer" has been the sleeveless trench or blazer. It's great for adding an extra layer on those slightly chillier days, without looking rather ridiculous to be so covered up in the Summer with a full on coat; plus, they're bang on trend and will continue to be into the colder months - just layer up with long sleeved polo necks underneath instead.
I teamed this camel sleeveless trench with a pair of navy pinstripe trousers, simple white cami, my trusty Le Pliage Longchamp bag and added a subtle pattern clash with my go to snake print sling back flats, which tied in nicely with the camel, to create an understated, chic work wear outfit. I always like to add just a touch of 'glam' to my outfits - whether that's for work or leisure, so my finishing touch was this vibrant statement necklace - the splash of red and dash of sparkle instantly spruces up what could be quite a dull outfit. This is something I quite like to do nowadays, rather than throwing tons of colour together, I prefer just a hint; a little pop of colour can really transform an outfit, even just a slick of red lipstick and guess what, it tends to make you feel great too! I'll be doing a post soon on some simple tips for improving morale/ to make you happy, so keep an eye out for that coming soon!
