LOTD: Preppy Playful Utilitarian

"Preppy Playful Utilitarian"
LOOK OF THE DAY

The word that today's look brings to mind is "Effortless", reason: it has polish while keeping the over all feel of casualness and the added militant pieces gives it a subtle edge.  The look all comes together as a trendy ensemble.

You guys know that I love layering no matter what the weather is so I start off the look with a light wash denim button-up from New Look, I then layered over a navy wool pull-over with a Daisy Duck print it's slightly outsize but I like it that way.  I paired the top half of the look with an olive skinny cargo trousers from New Look which I got in the sale 2 summers ago for less than £10.

On bottom, I kept the militant feel via my tan soft leather ankle bootie that has exposed textile lining all over the opening and a crosse strap detail around it.  Coincidentally, I also got this in the Sale at New Look.

For the accessories, I went with gold tone pieces that mesh well with the militant vibe of the look so I opted for a chevron necklace from Forever 21 [store in the Philippines], a gold analogue watch by Sekonda and lastly an armour ring from H&M and a mix of stack rings from Accessorize and Topshop.

The bag of the day is the same as yesterdays and that is the 2-toned soft leather shopper bag from H&M.

Lastly, today's outerwear is a borrowed piece from my Mom's wardrobe and that's this black rain proof coat from OASIS.  What I love about this coat is the sheerling lining it's super soft and it definitely gives you warmth whether you wear open of buttoned up.  For my scarf, it is my chunky crochets cream long scarf from River Island.

That's it for today's Look Of The Day and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! …XOXO…
