OOTD | Smart Casual




Jeans | Primark
Top | H&M
Blazer | New Look
Boots* | Fashion Union

Despite the fact that I don't leave the house too much I still love to get dressed up. Clothes make me happy so why not dress up, or just nicely everyday, it is very tempting to stay in my PJs all the time though. My style seems to change a lot and recently I've really been loving the 'smart casual' look, this is the kind of outfit I think of when someone says smart casual anyway. Jeans are a basic item that I think everyone should have in their wardrobe, a pair of jeans that fit you well can do wonders. For me though another basic item that I couldn't be without is a blazer. I have 2 blazers, mainly because of Sixth Form but also because I really love them. This is my more casual blazer that I got from New Look, it's not fitted or tailored, it's very loose and it's made out of a thinner material so it's great for Spring and Summer! 

Underneath the blazer I just wore a H&M grey top that I've had for a couple of years now, I hardly ever wear it though so I thought it would be nice to show it some sunlight. My favourite part of this outfit are my new Fashion Union Cut Out Boots* though. I've loved this style of boots since they first started coming out in shops but I've never been able to find some that are perfect for me. These are so nice though, the cut out isn't too big and I love the gold detail on them. They have a small chunky heel but are very comfortable, I'm not great at walking in heels but these are fine. They have a zip that goes up the back so they are easy to get on and off and they are such good quality as well! They are £38 but completely worth the price I think as the quality is great and I can see these lasting for ages, I can't wait to get a lot of use out of them this A/W. I wore them without socks today but I do want to get some black frilly socks to wear them with, I think that would look really nice with dresses.

If you couldn't already tell this is an outfit that I love! Let me know in the comments what your go-to outfit/clothing item is that makes you feel amazing!
