Celebrity Style Steal - Keri Russell & WIWT

Anyone else enjoying The Americans series featuring Keri Russell & Matthew Rhys?!!  Keri Russell certainly looks a lot better in her off screen clothes than the stuff she wears for the series.  In fact she's worn some amazing outfits recently for all the press & red carpet appearance for Planet Of The Apes.  

In particular I absolutely love this outfit, after all who doesn't love a little black outfit teamed with killer heels & a splash of red lippy?!!!  So to me the perfect celebrity style steal.

So working from the top down I've picked this simple chiffon blouse from Mango.  A great wardrobe staple that would look fab worn on it's own not to mention teamed with a statement necklace or scarf plus also a great top for wearing under a blazer to.

For the skirt I've stayed with Mango & picked this drawstring leather skirt.  I love the drawstring waist band which is perfect for giving an outfit a more casual sports luxe vibe compared to a leather pencil skirt & from the picture on the model doesn't look too indecent in the terms of mutton!!

However, if you fancy a different style how about this A-line one from M&S.

Or if a pencil skirt is more your thing M&S also have this great pencil skirt.

Or covering all bases what about this flared skirt from Zara.  I've actually tried this one on (in fact it might just so happen to be on my holiday shopping list!!!)  It flares out perfectly & even has pockets too!

Moving onto the shoes next & how about these stunning Mint Velvet sandals - gorgeous, will stay on my heels & will look as good teamed with a pair of jeans as it will a skirt or dress.

Sticking with Mint Velvet for a bag & I love this cross body/clutch.  A great classic that can be used as much as in the day as for an evening & with just the right amount of detailing with the zips.

So what do you think is this an outfit you could see yourself wearing?  Perhaps you've even got the basis of these items in your wardrobe.  I'd love to know what you think.

Finally here's what I'm planning on wearing for another glorious day in Majorca.

  2. I loved the first series of the American's but wasn't interested in the second for some reason. Love the Mint Velvet bag and shoes x

    1. The Mint Velvet bag & shoes are gorgeous aren't they Sharron.
      As for the Americans I seem to be enjoying the second series more than the first but that may have something to do with me being able to stay awake lol!!
