After a recent moment of payday madness, I made a rather large order on ASOS, filled with new basic pieces for the coming months. The heat is starting to die and we’re currently experiencing that sun/rain/hot/chilly weather – the kind you can NEVER dress correctly for. I’ve tried time and time again and resigned myself to the fact that the answer is obviously to buy more clothes #BLOGGERLOGIC.

Little did I know that said purchases would also make getting dress whilst keeping an eye on a small puppy far easier. Slouchy monochrome pieces over ripped jeans work well for most situations and look effortless – without the 15 outfit changes and the accompanying floor-drobe. For days where I want to look like I’ve made even more effort I’ve been popping on a red lip – instant effort made.

With such a super speedy morning routine I then have time for a big old cup of tea before I crack on with my work. Ahhh tea – the other saviour to spending my time running around after small puppies…

    This is indeed a great outfit! And you never realise how time consuming a puppy is until suddenly even the simple things take twice as long while you try to keep an eye on them, and leaving things on the floor is a no-go because they just get chewed! Careful of those gorgeous Vans – they look perfect puppy fodder!!

    Slouchy tops and black jeans have been my go to outfits of late! You can always "amp" the outfit up with jewelry or a bright lip, just like you've done with red square. It's just such an effortless look.
