Morning ladies today I thought it would be fun to steal Claudia's style as I don't know about you but I just love her look. Most of her outfits on Strictly plus those that you see her photographed in I can honestly say I'd love to have hanging in my wardrobe. Plus she really makes me giggle & I just think she seems like a really lovely down to earth person who'd be a lot of fun on a girls night out.
Now as soon as I spotted the above picture of her it instantly reminded me of a similar outfit I'd worn here - apart from the camo of course. But having dipped my toe in the camouflage clothing pool with my pleated midi skirt it's a pattern I really enjoy wearing. With the added bonus that it goes with so many items hanging in my wardrobe seeing as my wardrobe is full of grey, black, white & navy clothing. Not to mention looks fab with a pop of red or patterned clashed against some leopard print or stripes.
Today instead of just stealing Claudia's style I've used her outfit as inspiration to create 3 different looks. The first of which is a casual running around look that could so easily be teamed with a statement cross body bag, ballet pumps & either a breton, denim shirt or simple tee.

For the second look I've gone with a slightly dressier everyday outfit. I just love this style of jacket teamed with a maxi skirt or dress & the one I've featured below has the most gorgeous & flattering neckline. Layer up a few fine chains & you've got the perfect summertime outfit, which would be idea for travelling on holiday. Plus of course the look could be teamed with a variety of different footwear - trainers, flip flops, sandals or even ankle boots.

And for the final look I wanted to show how you could wear a splash of camo for a night out. Simple styling with a classic white shirt & cigarette pants with statement sandals & a splash of red. Or if you want something a little dressier just substitute the white shirt for a lace trim cami.

Back to today & I'm going with an all blue theme with a splash of red. Still loving these cropped sailor pants & kicking myself I didn't get them in the khaki. The gold buttons & cut of the trousers get me every time!

So ladies are you a fan of Claudia Winkleman & do you love her style? How about camouflage are you a lover of this pattern or is it something you tend to steer away from & favour stripes & a splash of leopard print instead? As always I'd love to hear your thoughts & read your comments.
It's another busy day of work for me so it's time to get my head down as I'm determined not to leave my desk until my to do list is completed.....well that's the plan anyway, although I might end up getting distracted by the mid season sale over at Hush, click here to shop!
Enjoy your day & I'll see you in the morning.
