What I Wore | The Basics

Waistcoat: Zara (similar here). T-shirt: & Other Stories. Leggings: Zara. Boots: & Other Stories (similar here). Bag: Nica Handbags*. Scarf: Kirsteen Stewart.  Hat: Topshop. Earrings: Love Hearts and Crosses*
When it comes to the weekend, my wardrobe always turns to comfort and of course, leggings and tees are the only way to fully fulfill that brief.
When I was in London a few weekends ago, I made my first ever trip to & Other Stories and it’s officially my new favourite shop – I can’t believe I waited so long to go and I think I might even love it more than Zara...which is saying something, y’know? I purchased these booties in their sale and with a whopping 70% off, they were reduced from £125 to just £37.50 – clearly it was meant to be. The t-shirt wasn’t in the sale and at £19, it’s a little pricey for a plain tee, but it is literally the softest, comfiest t-shirt I’ve ever owned – I'm pretty sure I need one in every colour...
My leggings are also a new purchase from Zara – they will always be my go-to store for leggings and these ones are pretty darn cosy. They’re really stretchy, which makes them roomy and the elasticised sides and zips to the front make them a little different...which also sort of remind me of jodhpurs...giddy up! ;)
I’m also very much in love with my origami fox earrings from Love Hearts and Crosses, they’re so pretty and unusual – and of course they’re foxes, so it was bound to be a match made in heaven.

I’m still head over heels with my waistcoat too and love how it manages to bring everything together and take the simplicity of the outfit up a few notches :). What's your weekend attire? Do you find yourself reaching for comfort too? 

Oh and if you fancy it, you can shop my look here :D

I seriously need to find a new blogging spot for my posts because you my dear put mine to shame! You look absolutely amazing and although we both have fringes I have serious fringe envy right now. And your ability to pull of a hat. And your outfit... Now i'm starting to sound creepy. Love your posts Megan :) xx

Basics are usually so underrated but I totally agree they are a great thing to wear on casual days and if need be jazz up bit with a few accessories. I can't believe you got such an awesome deal on those boots, I'm definitely one to scope out the best deals too! Your styling is on point girlie!
