Uniform No.4

Keeping things simple, I thought I would do another Uniform post and show a few of the basics I have been relying on now that the clocks have changed and there is that slight nip in the air (which I am very excited about). Details below…

TOP — COS

Can’t go wrong with some classic breton stripes. I love the fit of this top with the lower boatneck and 3/4 sleeves. The material is a super soft, lovely cotton. I picked this up on sale in COS for $15 which was a nice added bonus considering I totally would have paid full price for it too.

BOOTS — ZARA

I pinned this pin a couple of months ago and made a mental note to try and find a similar pair of boots as I fell in love with these. After some hunting, I settled on this faux suede pair from Zara. Although they have a bit of a heel, they are still super comfortable and I have been wearing them loads with both skinny and looser fitting straight-leg jeans. I totally intend on recreating the outfit in the pin too as it’s fab.

JEANS — CURRENT/ELLIOTT

As a Topshop Jamie jeans advocate, I have been wanting to switch things up and invest in a pair of higher end jeans for a while now. I had tried on everything from Rag & Bone to Citizens of Humanity and nothing really blew my mind, fit wise. After hearing good things about the Current/Elliott signature skinny fit, The Stiletto, I bit the bullet and ordered a pair. I struck it lucky with these as they fit bloody perfectly. The denim is awesome quality and they hold their shape really well (none of that baggy-knee business). Being 164cm tall, length is also an issue sometimes, but these hit me right above the ankle which I love. I’ll be getting a ton of wear out of these in the upcoming months for sure.

BAG — A.P.C.

My APC Half Moon Bag is still going strong. Having bought it just over a year ago, it’s almost surpassed it’s cost per wear as I wear it nearly everyday. It’s a little beaten up, but I’m ok with that. It’s so versatile and for a smaller bag, it carries a fair bit – see my What’s In My Bag here.

WATCH — ABBOTT LYON

I’ll be honest here, this watch is so not worth the money. While it does indeed LOOK pretty, the quality doesn’t match up as the clasp has a habit of randomly opening, making the watch fall right off my arm. Saying that, I do love the way it looks and it definitely brings a lil somethin’ somethin’ to an outfit, so I have still been wearing it loads (while being mindful that it could fall off at any given moment, lol). So moral of the story is don’t be fooled by these trendy watch companies — more often than not they are shoddily made. (*cough* but it is very pretty *cough*)

FRAGRANCE — MOJAVE GHOST BY BYREDO

Last on my list is a fragrance favourite that has lasted me a good year and is finally on it’s last legs. Every single time I wear this, without fail, someone asks which perfume I am wearing, to the point where two other girls at work have followed suit and picked up a bottle (which has resulted in a pretty divine smelling workplace, haha). I am keen to venture into the world of Le Labo after this.
