Shopping my wardrobe for a style steal!

There is no better feeling for me than coming across a bit of inspiration that you know you have all the basic components enabling you to recreate an outfit....even better if it's the type of outfit that will be perfect for this tricky transeasonal weather (chilly mornings but roasting by school pick up) but that will still look cool for the school run! I saw a version of this outfit on Instagram and had a lightbulb moment! I can do that! I've got a maxi dress that I could layer up with a logo sweater, perfect for early morning drop off....even more perfect when I can whip the sweater off and slip some sandals on with once the temps rise! Happy days! I did jazz mine up with a leopard print bag just to ring the changes.....here's my version first!

Here's the picture that inspired me! The look came from A Style Album's feed, where I clocked this outfit on @patriciaconcierge!
Here's how you could replicate Patricia's look.....or mine if you so wish!


It's a very short and sweet post from me today......I'm off to scour Instagram, looking for more style to steal! I will leave you with outfits from the past couple of days!

    1. Thanks Annmarie! All the *A Style Album* girls are stylish aren't they....I saw Emma Thatcher in a gorgeous flowy maxi with Converse and a biker jacket, that's a look I might have to try too! xx

    1. Funnily enough Beth it was the bag that sold the look to me as I am lucky enough to have a Chanel bag but I didn't think toting it on the school run was appropriate so I went for a bit of fun in the way of leopard print instead! xx

    1. Thank you Helen...this little ensemble worked perfectly for me on that school run day as I was shooting off after drop off to meet a friend for coffee, then nipping into town to run a few errands and this outfit was perfect for all those occasions! Gotta love those *A Style Album* girls for their inspiration! xx
