Top: River Island, jeans: Topshop (Joni), boots: Asos, rings: Dixi, Rock 'N Rose and H&M, duster coat: Missguided, bag: Michael Kors, necklaces: Topshop
I stumbled into River Island on my lunch break for a 'quick browse'. Inevitably, my intention to look, but keep my purse firmly located within my handbag ended in failure as usual. I caved to this heather effect vest top due to the subtle yet eye-catching cut out detail to the back. Even though it is just another vest top, and it is rather plain, it occurred to me in this moment that the most valuable items in my wardrobe in terms of cost-per-wear, are in fact purchases such as these.
The well made vest top, T-shirt or plain top of any sort, really, is not a frivolous waste of money, but an investment. Or so I told myself as I pondered with limited time on my hands and a mental countdown occurring in my minds eye.
Anyway, I think it makes for the perfect 'throw me on' casual clothing option. Paired with these heavy duty hiking boots and longline duster coat, I was clearly trying to emulate my style icon of the week, Suki Waterhouse's, casual-cool off-duty looks.
