My Wardrobe: Casual // Comfortable

I had a jam-packed day on Monday, with a very early start and back-to-back meetings (some of them with very stylish people indeed!) so I wanted to wear something comfortable and casual, but still vaguely stylish and put together. I opted for these silky navy culottes from ASOS as the basis of my outfit. I was a little apprehensive about these when I first tried them on as they aren't a shape I'm used to wearing, but the material is lovely (not what I was expecting as they are ASOS own brand!) I actually loved wearing them and will definitely be rocking them a lot in the future. The top I wore is from Pinko. I can't seem to find a link for this online, so I've put a few similar styles in the 'shop the look' bar below if you're looking for something similar. I love the laser-cut sleeves and it's actually one of the most comfortable off-the-shoulder styles I've found recently (I love off the shoulder, but so many of them are either majorly uncomfortable due to tight elastic or pop off your shoulders too easily and end up sitting around your neck!) The shoes are my black lace espadrilles from River Island. There are still a few pairs online I think, but I know the white ones have already sold out. I've lived in these this summer and own them in three colours. They are so comfortable and are a great dupe for the Valentino version at a tiny, tiny fraction of the price. As for the bag... well, that's something I'll be talking about in Sunday's new YouTube video. The Chanel Boy has finally joined my wardrobe party - Eek!
