This is a typical of my lazy outfits: wear black everywhere, preferably in comfy shapes, and spice it up with fabulous accessories. And, lately, in my book of accessories, it doesn't get much more fabulous than my Milan handbag by Milli Millu. The colour combination, camel, black and gold hardware, is perfect for winter, when black bags can get so boring!!! This one has the added bonus of being super roomy yet light, a big advantage seeing as I'm carrying bits of the Great Wall with me most days.
Besides from my Milan and my scarf, most of this outfit is, very much high street, and of the very affordable variety as well... In fact I picked up my coat and booties from the aisle next to the salads! How is that for no snobbery? Yet I get so many compliments on this boucle biker and my little lace-ups, they have returned far beyond their original cost. I think the secret in picking super high street finds is checking the materials (wool mix is far better than polyester, obviously, and 100% leather shoes are a far superior choice versus pu, whatever pu means).
