I know I will have said this before, but there aren't many things that make me feel as cool as wearing a suit does. I love a good suit, I am never not inspired by pictures of girls looking insane in a suit, and I am never not tempted by them in the shops. I have a few in my wardrobe already, but I am very excited to introduce this newbie to you all! It's from Paul Smith and is from their range of suits to travel in - which essentially do not crease in your suitcase. No matter how many times I go away I am the worst packer ever, so when I say this came straight out the case looking exactly as it does here, you have to imagine a case full of scrunched up clothes in my painful attempt at folding. I am the best person to actually test this out on, and can confirm that yep.. it doesn't crease. Those of who you watch my vlogs will also know how much I hate ironing, so this is literally my idea of heaven.
Not surprisingly, what I love about suits is how effortless they are to style. Just a plain t-shirt and some (admittedly, very very cool) trainers and you are sorted with a look that couldn't have been easier to put together. For winter I would go with a black turtleneck and my black high top converse, or some court heels if I was after an evening look. And it goes without saying that a suit is easy peasy to make work for so many different occassions. If you travel for work, love to rock a suit from time to time, or just cannot fold clothes to save your life then this is definitely a piece worth investing in. I went for this gorgeous plum shade because it's screaming Autumn/Winter at me and I am 100000% gonna go for that turtleneck/converse combination I mentioned ASAP.

Seems I cannot share a blog post with just one look in it nowadays.. so here is another one in this post! A little more tailoring love here too, because Paul Smith seriously know how to do some tailoring. This blazer is unlike one I have already mostly due to the position of the single button, which gives the piece such a different vibe to my usual double breasted blazers. The shorter lapels definitely make the piece seem more traditional and feminine, something I don't usually gravitate towards when it comes to tailoring. However, in this piece is just works. It's longline length, check pattern and incredibly luxe wool fabric all contribute to make this feel like a really special piece. I think this is going to be one I reach for a lot more for evenings because it feels so chic and smart - although for now I did go for a casual look.
This white shirt isn't like any other I own either because each button is a little charm! I have it buttoned up the to music note for reference... and this is a sentence I never thought I would blog, and makes zero sense if read out of context! It's a very cute little update on a complete classic. If you want an oversize fit make sure to go either one, if not two, sizes up from your usual as it's a fitted style!
