I am not too keen on occasion shopping when it comes to outfits. It is easy to make a mistake when under time pressure and buy an outfit just for the sake of getting something new. Having staples that will serve more than one occasion is a key for me.
I bought this little navy dress on sample sale quite a few years ago. It is maybe more fitted than I would have liked but hopefully I can still make it work. It would be ideal for most of the formal outgoings like weddings, christenings or special birthdays and anniversaries.
I have paired it with one of my favourite pumps in my collection. Surprisingly comfortable for the heel hight, they go well with pretty much everything. The clutch bag is more of a statement item but gives something edgy to this otherwise simple outfit. I bought it about seven years ago and although I do not wear it often enough, I do not have any intention of ever parting my ways with it.
So that is what I wore one very formal Sunday !

Thank you very much for stopping by !!
There is a new video on my channel as of today showing you everything I have been loving in August !! I would really appreciate if you check it out…
As much as love traveling, coming back home after a holiday is always a relief for me. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed and just be at home for a couple of days. That need for rest and isolation is a very short one as after about a week or so I cannot resist to plan our next vacation…
The outfit I am showing you today is a very casual one, with a nice pair of heels and a designer clutch bag to add that more luxury feel. Everything I am wearing today, makes me feel comfortable and I love each and every one of these pieces.
The only new thing featured here is this leather jacket by AllSaints that I got during my recent visit to Bicester Village. It was originally retailing for over £300 and I have managed to get it for under £150 !! I am not sure if that is a rule with all the leather jacket, but most AllSaints jackets run big to size so if you are thinking of getting one, my advise would be to definitely size down…
Leather jacket is one of those transitional pieces that will take through all seasons. You can pair it with the summer dress and heels for more romantic vibe or pair of trainers and jeans for a dress down look. If you interested in more styling ideas, I would recommend to check out this post here.
All of the pictures taken for today’s post are from the nearby village which I really like. It is quintessential British and has that amazing feel about it. Small shop, post office, nice pub and a hairdresser that is all that is needed…
So without further delay… that is what I wore Sunday !
