Celebrity Style Steal & WIWT Day 12

Hola ladies so we're now on the countdown to the end of our holidays & savouring the last few days. But as I lie by the pool working on my tan my mind has started to think outfits & what I'm going to wear on my return.

So when I spotted this image of the ever elegant Kate Beckinsale I thought this outfit would be perfect for cool summery days once back home not to mention perfect for showing off the tan ;-)

Here's Kate rocking the off the shoulder look.

And here's how I'd steal Kate's style with pieces currently on the high street.

Starting with this lovely off the shoulder Bardot, which although isn't quite as detailed as Kate's still have very pretty sleeves.

River Island White Bardot Top

Then onto the jeans with a classic mid blue, slightly distressed pair that will work paired with a lace blouse for a night out as much as it will teamed with a blazer or a chunky polo neck come Winter.

Mango Crop Skinny Isa jeans

And finally onto the shoes, which I've gone a bit off piste on - now Kate has gone for a classic court shoe but I'm thinking these statement shoes would be much more foot friendly for running around during the day.  Plus of course they would make the most amazing wardrobe addition for breathing new life into many an outfit.
