Seeking that perfect breton?

Fashion, Style

The quest for the perfect breton top has been an ongoing mission lasting, well, all of my life really. I will explain the situation… I walk into Zara (or actually any shop) and I eagle eye the perfect breton top. Is it the right navy colour? yes. Are the stripes thick but not too thick? yes. YES, let’s buy it and boom they don’t have my size. Now this incident must have happened in hundreds of shops over the years.

ALAS, I take a little peruse around River Island (clutching my Grazia 25% discount voucher obv) and along with a whole other heap of goodies pick up this perfect breton top. The material is ribbed and flirts out slightly from the waist, but my favourite feature is the sleeve length making it a perfect winter staple.

Today I styled it with some high waist light wash jeans (Topshop, the only denim I ever buy!) and my beaut of a find, lurking in the back of my wardrobe a vintage (well it is five years old) Chelsea Girl fur coat from River Island. Finished off with a new pair of River Island booties and a signature Mac lip in ‘cockney’.

THREE WAYS TO WEAR.. Topshop cobalt midi skirt

Fashion, Life, Style

This could just be the most versatile piece of clothing I have ever bought! Oh and I haven’t mentioned yet, it is part of the Topshop maternity line… lol. I am a sucker for sales, I would even go as far as saying 80% of my wardrobe is sale and I would very rarely buy Zara full price. But it’s finds like this for £10 that keep me addicted to the crowded rails, littered floors and less than subtle elbow shoves, oops maybe that is just me!
