Navy and black...

 This outfit was shamelessly inspired by the lovely Amy (whose wardrobe and figure I want to steal!) I really love navy and black together and when I saw this top in my favourite charity shop, I was sold. It incorporates all of my current loves, navy and black, sheer panels and sleeves (glorious sleeves!) so buying it was a bit of a no-brainer really!

Top: Limited Collection from Marks & Spencer via charity shop, vest top (worn underneath): Primark, trousers:  Topshop, loafers: Office
 For some reason the top looks really bright in this picture but I can promise you it is a true navy! The black lace detailing on this top is so pretty and adds a bit more coverage over the chest area (always a bonus with a sheer shirt!) Usual make up with 'Berry Blush'  by Natural Collection, my favourite 'natural' lipstick colour 


As you can see, without the added panels, it is very sheer so I was glad that I wore the vest top underneath. I loved the attention to detail with this though, each shoulder has a slight puff to give it some shape and is topped off with these adorable little buttons...


My favourite 7/8 trousers- never underestimate the versatility of some slim black trousers, I have worn these to so many different occasions as they just seem to go with everything, I guess that's why they call them wardrobe classics, huh?! ;)

Audrey Hepburn, eat your heart out.
Just as an added bonus, me looking like a garden gnome whilst trying to keep dry, I definitely need to get a chauffeur to ferry me around in the rain! 


What are your wardrobe classics? Whose wardrobe do you want to steal?

Lovely outfit, very classy, wish I tried wearing something like this every once in a while! I keep thinking about trying to get some slim black trousers, I do think they would be useful. I'm glad you're getting such use out of those bargain trousers that you ummed and ah-ed about!

I love that! My mum once told me you shouldn't wear navy and black together, and I told her that was rubbish. This outfit is lovely!

Navy and black are such a perfect combination, and your hair is looking particularly gorgeous here too.
And I love that blouse. I've been so inspired to wear blouses after seeing you look amazing in them.

For some reason I feel that navy and black is an unacceptable colour combination on me, but that it's fine on other people. I think it reminds me of my old school uniform too much for me to wear it, haha. You look fabulous though, I love the ruffle and button details on your shirt! I will be looking to your blog for 'smart work clothes' inspiration when I start my internship next month :)
