a splash of claret

Tee – H&M
Scarf – McQueen
Maxi skirt – H&M

I have recently been loving basics. And where else from than H&M. I have accumulated tonnes of tees over the last few weeks, in all colours and levels of slouchiness. I particularly love this one which has a little breast pocket, sadly concealed by my scarf, and a V-neckline. So simple to wear and lends itself well to be tucked into high waisted skirts and such. And the claret colour is a shade braver than I would usually choose but I really like it, even if it does clash with my hair somewhat…

    The McQueen scarf totally changes a basic outfit like that, it's a lovely look. I've been on the lookout for a t-shirt like that!

    I love H&M basics! They've always got loads of nice colours, they're dead cheap, and pretty good quality as far as I'm concerned. That colour really suits you. Your nails look amazing too!
