Style Steal - Laura Fantacci & WIWT

So for this month's style steal I couldn't resist copying this stunning outfit from Laura over at Wearing It Today.  Not only do I love everything about this look, I possess similar items, which means I can interpret the look without having to spend a penny so hubby's delighted!

Firstly here's Laura looking absolutely stunning.

And without further a do here's how you could steal her style with finds currently available on the high street.

Starting with this fab simple shirt from Mango for the fantastic price of £19.99.  Now if you don't already own a similar style then seriously consider purchasing this or similar as it's a great multi tasker for dressing up or down.

Moving on to the skirt next & this one from Zara looks extremely similar to one I bought this time last year & have found incredibly useful.  In my book another fab buy for Autumn.

Zara Faux Leather Skirt £25.99

One style I haven't dipped my toe into yet is the tasseled bag but this Oasis bag would make a great statement to many an outfit & not a bad price if you fancy giving the theme a try.

Oasis Tasseled Shoulder Bag £34

I firmly believe that you can never go wrong with a classic style of black sunnies & these Marks ones are perfect for wearing & not worrying about.

Marks and Spencer Oversized Sunglasses

And finally I've swapped the sandals Laura's wearing for strappy ballerinas as they'd be perfect for Autumn & let's face it its a trend that's not slowing down.  Plus these ones from Mango are a great price.

So what do you think, is it an outfit that ticks your boxes?  I have to admit I love the idea of throwing a classic trench over this look come the Autumn or adding a splash of leopard print in the accessories to create a different look not to mention swapping the sandals for ankle boots once the weather gets cooler.  I reckon this is a great look that can be adopted many ways & would be a great basis for a few different looks.  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Sunday ladies, I'm off to make the most of my last day of freedom!  Have a great day & see you tomorrow.
