For me, there are some formulas that just work: denim, cardis and logo tees being one of them. But my new addition to this? The ubiquitous basket bag.
But not just any basket bag – the new shape that adds an extra quirk to your look. I’d seen this circular version on a few instagram accounts and knew it had to make its way towards me – there are a few out there – Oliella, Edit.58 and Wood Grey has just started stocking them, too. I love the idea of the mini basket ones (see BloomingDreamer here). But for me, this is the perfect size bag to throw everything in, especially on city break trips, and it stands up on its own!
I like to pretend I’m Jane Birkin, wondering the Parisien streets swinging my chic basket in tow.
But I ditched my flats for something with a bit more oomph – the perfect heel height for a court. Red heels are having a moment but these are also a total classic. The perfect partner to frayed leg denim.
And of course the logo tee from La Redoute which I’d been meaning to get my hands on after seeing Erica in the white version last summer. This one has been so popular it has sold out but they’re guaranteed to have some new ones coming in (and I’ve got my eyes on this one (in pink, of course) in the meantime.
