Wardrobe Picks – Levi’s Tee & Blazer

While selecting items for ‘wardrobe picks’, it became clear that the foundations of my wardrobe are laid in denim. A good pair of jeans and a t-shirt will take you pretty much anywhere these days so it makes sense that the bulk of my sartorial budget lies in an array of crops, skinnies and kick flares. Or, at least it did. I’m kind of feeling that I’ve been on something of a style sabbatical these past two years – growing and raising babies has left me, shall we say, a little jaded in the fashion stakes. I’ve emerged from my baby induced haze into a world of ‘mom-fit’ jeans, uber high-waists and stonewashed denim, all of which I have to say, I’m loving the look of. Getting that look right, on the other hand, is taking a little more time and thought than my pre baby days necessitated. Take the mom-fit jean. In my pre baby days, this look would have been deliciously ironic and easily replicated. As a mother, on the other hand, you walk a fine line between that nonchalant, stylish nod to the 90’s and actually looking like a frump who hasn’t adapted her style since 1994! These dark indigo high rise skinnies are a pretty safe option but they are super stretchy, super comfy and super flattering. Another trend that seems to be riding high is the logo tee. Now traditionally, I’m not a huge fan in plastering myself in logos – I usually prefer the more subtle approach. However, it’s grown on me (as trends have a tendency to do). The original Gucci version is the Holy Grail but as much as I love a good t-shirt, £320  does seem a little steep for what is essentially a trend piece. This Levi’s tee is a design classic and isn’t so ‘in your face’ that you would feel in any way self-conscious wearing it on a daily basis. I’ve finished my look with a classic navy blazer from By Malene Birger (ancient, must be seven years old if it’s a day…the power of a good blazer) and box fresh Adidas Gazelles!
