a simple yet chic celebrity style steal!

When I spotted this picture of Diane Kruger, I literally did a double take as whilst perusing the rails in Topshop yesterday as I spotted some excellent replicas to make up this chic outfit!

You can shop this whole look in good old Toppers for a fraction of the cost of the Isabel Marant sweater Diane is wearing! This beauty is now top of my wish list!





How gorgeous are these boots too?! These would be fab for a rainy day school run!





   
Simple but perfect! I think I could shop my own wardrobe for similar pieces though I admit defeat, I reckon it's time to get the tights out since the bare-leg weather seems to have left us for good.....but!! In a couple of weeks I can see me sporting this ensemble with a pea coat and opaques....very parisienne non?! Much more wearable for the school run as well!

It really is a short and sweet one from me today....only an outfit or 2 to share from the past couple of days!

A view from the top of this outfit so you can see the texture of the H&M sweater.....I love it!

There is always room in the wardrobe for another Breton.....am I tempting you with this one?

  1. Yes you are!!! The Isabel Marant one is just divine, but at £500+ totally off limits for many, the Toppers one is a great little copy, love the nautical buttons.

    1. The TS one is such a fab homage isn't it Annmarie! I will be giving the whole outfit a whirl when I go out on a girly shopping trip tomorrow! :0) xx

    1. I don't think I will be able to resist this one Jane....I do love the button detail at the neck! *Sigh* the husband will be rolling his eyes when he sees me adding this one to my collection! ;0) xx

  4. Love this Diane Kruger oufit Michelle. Am seriously tempted by the Breton! It doesn't do so well in the reviews though so look forward to hearing your verdict after your shopping trip. Loving your Blog. Sue xx

    1. Diane is seriously stylish isn't she Sue?! A girl can never have too many Breton's! I will be taking a closer look at the sweater today and report back on my findings! Off to check out those reviews! xx

    1. Diane certainly is a great source of stylish inspiration Helen! Such an easy look to replicate too! xx

  6. It's a good dupe isn't it Michelle, the Breton jumper? And you could easy pull off this look!

    I have to say though, I love both the outfits you featured here. I went in search of your black jumper online but none left in my size. #weep

    1. In fairness Sue....as you know I can cobble this look together with pieces I've already got but I am still coveting the TS sweater....gonna check the Mango alternative you pointed out first though before I take the plunge!

      I adore the H&M sweater....fingers crossed it comes back into stock as it is such a goody! xx

  7. Yes you are! And I would also like DK's legs to go with that skirt, if that could be arranged please! ;-D Those Topshop boots are right up my street, too. They did (still do? I daren't look, or I'll have to buy them) that style in tan snakeprint which I spent a long time trying - and failing - to justify :-) I think Topshop is best avoided for me, for the time being. Far too much temptation! xx
