Hi! I hope you’ve had a good week. I’ve been so busy, it feels like January is flying by, which is good because I’m not a big fan of this month. Anyway, I’m dedicating this post to wardrobe basics and in particular one of my favourite combos – jeans and a shirt. Because even though it feels like a cop-out, like I didn’t try very hard (or at all) jeans and a shirt will always be a classic look and for good reason. It just works. Amiright?

The Look

Jeans and a shirt are my signature look these days. It could be boyfriend jeans and a white tee or a pair of straight cut denim and an oversized shirt. Depending on my mood and where I’m going I’ll dress it up with pumps or heeled boots, like this amazing blue suede pair from Dune London, how gorgeous are they!! Or just go casual with sneakers.

When I saw this blouse with necktie, ruffles and cuffs from Next I knew it would take the ole faithful jeans and shirt look to the next level. The faded black jeans, also from Next are a perfect fit. Just check out the button details at the ankle! It’s these kind of details that make the difference between denim that is mmm ok and ahhmazing! A military inspired jacket from H&M and suede boots complete the look.

If it ain’t broke…
