Flat Lay Leanne Marie Blog

Just a couple of items I've recently purchased. 

I'm in no way trying to create a capsule/minimal wardrobe, however I am trying to a) inject a bit of colour and b) pick classic items that I can easily mix and match. It's a slow process, but I'll get there.

Gone are the days where I lug around a huge handbag at the weekends, I much prefer a smaller cross body number like this red one, which is an absolute steal at £15.. I have two other bags of this style also from Accessorize, so it's safe to say they are fast becoming a favourite of mine! Just the right size for all your weekend essentials. 

I do love my ankle boots, But the pairs I already have are all very similar. I'm craving a bit of variety. It was about time I bought myself a pair that were a little different, therefore opted for these open toe cut out ones from River Island. They're very comfortable, look a bit fancier than anything I already own and aren't too expensive. An all round winning pair of boots.  I've found myself looking at River Island more and more recently. They've got a really great range of items out at the moment, gone are the days where it was all neons and sequins! 

I've wanted a classic Levis T-shirt for a long time. After seeing it pop up on Instagram multiple times, the fashion gods were on my side & ASOS provided this offering. I feel that sometimes a branded T-shirt like this one can make it look like you've made more of an effort. Does anyone else ever feel that way? It's just a little more stylish? Do I even make sense? Jeans, converse, a branded T-shirt and jacket...also with the addition of a across body bag = an instant 'well thought out' outfit. - Well I think so anyway!

So there you have it. A simple little post from me. Going a bit 'old school' in terms of blog posts, but I think that's the direction I want to go now. Little tidbits of my life, nothing to complicated, nothing too fancy. 

Much love,
