I’m all for wearing outfits that are fun, yet practical.

Practicality is key for me, as I find that 9 times out of 10 I am running around like crazy most days trying to multitask as much as possible.

Sometimes, I might be running from a meeting to an event, and then to a photoshoot and there is no way that I could do that all without wearing something thats super practical, comfortable but also a little classy.

This outfit is an example of one that is both practical – yet appropriate for all way day wear to events and meetings.

It has a great “party up top” nature about it.

The exposed shoulder ruffle blouse, which features a high collar, ruffle detailing and tie sleeves – makes for a great, versatile shirt that I can pair with jeans like I have here, or transfer to wearing with a skirt or more dressier style of pant.

These slim fit “mom” jeans (which are the newer style of boyfriend jean and have a tighter fit) in their light wash and ripped knee, are constructed from a heavy weight comfort stretch denim, and have an extreme high rise.

What I love most about these jeans is that they just sit SO WELL on the hips and the body – making them great for practicality and for wearing all day, every day.

The fact that they fit just above the ankle, means that they are ideal for paring with mid-height shoes, or sneakers.

Now these studded mid shoes are my latest purchase, and my most favoured shoe in my wardrobe at the moment.

With their silver-tone studs, pointed toe and block mid heel – they are perfect for running around the city, and their double ankle strap fastening is ideal for pairing with ankle finishing jeans – as they give a great streamlined look.

Get the look!
