Casual Countryside Chic

Despite not wearing jeans for a couple of months prior to heading back to England, I knew the temperature difference would require several pairs of “pants” (yes those too, English people) in my luggage.  I’ve posted these jeans before but I love them. Luuuurveee them.  Whilst I may dream of J Brand denim, I know that Gap is going to fit me perfectly every time and these Super Flare jeans from their 1969 collection have certainly been a great buy this year.

The sheer top in this outfit post was purchased at the Oxford Circus TopShop store.  I had just one day in London to visit some of my favourite shops and whilst NYC does have a TopShop, I’m more familiar and at home in this one, what can I say… I know the layout like the back of my hand (thank you for not changing things too much in six months, TopShop).  So there I was, am armful of clothing to try on at something like just five minutes after opening time that morning.  I had two main successes – this sheer side tuck blouse was one that had been my wish list for a while, something smart/casual but great for the NY summer.  I get a lot of wear out of this outfit, I just switch the jeans for my Gap cut offs now I’m back in the US and I’m good to go.

You can also purchase the blouse in blue, which I was close to doing, but I thought the cream colour might be more versatile…

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  It was super hot here in Manhattan, so it’s nice to remember the cool breeze of the English summer (and the fun I had!) in these pictures.
