Morning ladies so before we get onto this month's style steal & WIWT I've got a fab Boden discount code to share with you as they've just launched 25% off everything :-)
I've put together my top picks above for anyone wanting some inspiration (just scroll through by clicking on the arrows) or for anyone thinking of investing in cashmere this season now would be a great time with the discount (see here). In fact I've just clicked the button on this beauty. Or if you fancy an online browse just click here to grab the offer & use code 6T2C at the checkout.
So for this month's style steal I've picked this picture of Olivia Palermo, whose style regular readers will know I love. I just love the colour combo of navy teamed with black & I think Olivia's look is timeless, although I'm giving my style steal a slight twist & instead of a tailored navy coat I'm going with this stunning cape.
I just love everything about this timeless piece & it would be perfect for teaming with leather leggings as much as it would jeans or a simple tailored dress. I kept resist the button last year for something similar so am very temtped to invest this year & it would certainly add something to my wardrobe.
Of course we all love a stripe or two, so this oversized shirt is a perfect wardrobe addition that can be worn all year round - perfect for jeans & trainers of a weekend, layered over leggings with heels for a night out & come summer time paired with a pair of denim cut offs & panama.
Moving onto the leggings next & a pair of leather leggings are a definite investment buy but I guarantee you'll be surprised by just how much you wear them. Dress up with heels & a long line blazer for the perfect night out outfit or pair with a chunky knit & biker boots for a casual everyday look. You really will wonder how you managed without them & there really is no substitute when you compare the leather to the faux leather versions.
Finally finishing with the boots & instead of going for a heeled ankle boot like Olivia I've chosen these flat buckled beauties. I just love the extra detailing with the buckles & of course being flat these really could be worn all season long.
Back to today & I'm keeping with some wardrobe classics & teaming my leather biker with stripes & a splash of Bet.
