For me, it's definitely more about what I feel looks good on me, and suits my shape and body type rather than being purely trend led. I'm loving vintage buys at the moment and they don't tend to be as trend led as some of the high street 'off-the-peg' items. Today was definitely a comfort over style day, I had a few errands to run and then met up with my friend for a Costa which was lovely. It's always nice to catch up with someone when you haven't seen them for a while!
Today's outfit was a kind of throw-on-and-hope-it-looks-okay affair. I feel quite comfortable in it and I love the almost vintage feel of the skirt! A breton tee is a simple addition to any outfit and I personally think they can be paired with almost anything because they're such a staple item.

I wore my Topshop weave brogues with this for a really casual look, and 'borrowed' my Mum's mini Chiltern two tone satchel. I love this bag, the only problem I have is that it's too small to fit all of my crap that I cart around with me in, which means I have to be organised and very, very selective. I also realised after taking these pictures that I really, really should have ironed the skirt before I wore it (oops!) that's the hazards of throwing on an outfit I suppose!
Obviously going to Costa meant I had to snap the drinks I bought. It was quite a sunny day so I got one of their new Iced Caramel Lattes first of all, but we were there a while so I also indulged in a Cafe Caramella which is hands down my favourite on the menu.
I love a good coffee!
What have you all been up to today? Do you have many plans for the weekend? Also, I'm interested in what you think about the whole style thing, do you tend to buy what's on-trend or do you go for what appeals to your own tastes? Let me know in the comments.
