This outfit is one of those fall back one’s, perfect for a day like today when I all seemed to want to wear is leopard print. You all know about my love for black skinny’s well here I am in them again, they’re from Donna Ida and are definately an investment piece. I saved my pennies for these and they’re worth every single one of them! My blouse is another wardrobe staple; it can be worn casually, smart, or dressed up for a night out. All I need to do is change the accessories around a little. It’s one of those items that I think everyone should have in their wardrobe, you don’t have to go for a style that ties at the neck like this one, there are so many different styles around, for all body shapes. I can just about get away wearing this blouse un-tucked but I think it’s a more polished look when it’s tucked in, it also gives it a bit more shape.

I didn’t start this post intending it to be about key items for the wardrobe, but it seems to have turned out that way…maybe it’s because I did a wardrobe consultation today which is all about identifying key items and building on them to develop a hard working wardrobe.
Oh, and if you’re wondering why my dog is in so many of the photos, it’s because I took them as soon as I got home to catch the last of the daylight, when normally I’d be rushing out on a walk with him. It was his way of letting me know that he was ready, but to be honest, I didn't mind I quite liked the distraction in front of the lens.
Do you have a fall back outfit, or do you always know what to wear?
