Earning my stripes | Uniqlo tunic & Next clutch


I can't remember the last time I did a style outfit post, which obviously means I've been walking around naked in a hoody and jeans for the past week or so. In truth, I've been going through my wardrobe in an attempt to cut down, but all of what I'm wearing here are new-ish, surprise surprise!

Uniqlo has to be one of my favourites. I swoon over every new collection (and HOW gorgeous did Liv and co. look in the recent Celia campaign?) and everything is just so easy to wear. This blue and white tunic was part of a recent splurge that I've been wearing over leggings, and with trainers is probably the closest I will get to "sports-luxe".

Sports stripes
Blue and white tunic - Uniqlo
White clutch - Next
Trainers - c/o Spartoo

My laser-print bag is from Next, masquerading as a clutch when it's actually an iPad case. It has been on my Pinterest wishlist for weeks, and with the boss talking about iPads all round at work if we hit target (fingers crossed people), maybe I've been a little too quick off the mark.

I've been doing shedloads of social media strategising at work which has made life, the universe and everything, seem utterly pointless. I love tweeting about shoes as much as the next fashion blogger, but thinking about optimised content and scheduling and targets just turns my brain to mush. I've definitely felt like hiding away, so this weekend I escaped in my book, away from new media and away from google analytics.

Happy Sunday guys!
