baukjen erika newlife blazer

Erika Newlife Blazer - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Morning ladies.  I think it's safe to say 2020 hasn't been the kind of year any of us had expected - small understatement or what?!!!  Anyway with work patterns changing & more of us working from home it got me thinking that now more than ever we need our wardrobes to work harder. 

Instead of a work wardrobe & off duty wardrobe we need pieces that can be worn whatever the occasion.  High quality, timeless pieces that are perfect for obtaining the effortless style we all attain too, that look just as good dressed up as they do down & Baukjen are a brand that encompass just that.

So today I want to share with you what I consider to be the foundations upon which a great wardrobe can be built.   Those pieces that aren't ever going to go out of fashion & can be worn whatever the occasion.  Even better I've been given a discount code to share with you - MYMIDLIFE20 that will get you 20% off their collection.

So the first piece to make my list of 'building blocks' has to be the timeless blazer.  I've always loved wearing a blazer as for me it gives me confidence & helps bring an outfit together.  Whether that be dressed down with a tee, jeans & trainers, dressed up for a night out with heels & leather leggings.  Or even teamed with a maxi skirt/dress instead of a biker jacket.  If the weather allows they even look great with shorts & cami in the summer.

Talking of styling with shorts, my second pick - the timeless white shirt looks just as great teamed with denim shorts as it does worn for the office with cigarette pants, a pair of boyfriend jeans & quite frankly most pieces you'll ever finding hanging in a wardrobe.

baukjen the cigarette pant


The Cigarette Pant - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Now I've already mentioned cigarette pants, which for me are the perfect style trouser for all occasions.  Ideal for dressing down with trainers, a hooded jumper & biker jacket.  Worn with a pretty top & ballet flats for the office & then for a night out heels, oversized blazer & camisole.

baukjen Brooklyn Organic hoodie

Another building block your wardrobe needs is a hooded sweatshirt.  Something that can be thrown on over gym wear, worn for laid back weekend style with leather leggings & trainers or even used to dress down a maxi skirt.

baukjen cropped palazzo trouser

Cropped Palazzo Trouser - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Then of course you've got the wide legged cropped trouser that makes a great alternative to jeans & looks just great worn with trainers & ballet pumps alike.

baukjen everyday leather biker jacket

Everyday Leather Biker Jacket - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Whilst a leather biker jacket is initially a considered investment, you'll be surprised at how quickly it will soon earn it's keep.  Perfect for throwing over your favourite summer maxi dresses when temperatures start to turn cooler.  Or layered with a hooded sweatshirt in winter & like the white shirt, ideal for pairing with most pieces hanging in your wardrobe.

baukjen Emma organic cotton stripe top

Emma Organic Cotton Stripe Top - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Of course we all love a stripe & I'm sure you don't need me to tell you just how versatile or how much of a 'must have' a breton top is!

The Organic Boyfriend Jean

The same of course can be said for jeans.  The only thing is can you ever own enough pairs?  If you're wanting to limit your choice to one style then these boyfriend jeans are perfect.  Especially if like me you love wearing ballet pumps as they finish just above your ankle bone.

baukjen devan v-neck jumper

Devan V-Neck Jumper - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Similar to a hooded sweatshirt a longline jumper is ideal for layering over a pretty shirt & is a perfect way of making Autumn outfits winterproof.

Whether it's teaming with a blazer or biker jacket a simple round neck tee is another great staple & wardrobe 'must have'.

baukjen raven leather trouser

Raven Leather Trouser - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

As are a cropped pair of leather trousers.  Again like the leather biker jacket an investment piece but something that will last a lifetime.

And finally a timeless leather belt, that can add a much needed 'pop of a colour' to many a look.

Back to today & in keeping with today's theme, I've been lucky enough to choose a few pieces from Baukjen.  Needless to say it was a hard choice to make but in the end I chose 3 pieces that will form the basis of many an outfit this Autumn.

Shirt - Baukjen * - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

As I've already mentioned above you can never go wrong with a classic & timeless white shirt & this one ticks all the effortless dressing boxes.  A great timeless piece that is slightly oversized & the perfect weight so that all you need to do is throw it on & it instantly falls perfectly.  I went with my normal size of an 8.

The jumper is ideal for incorporating a brighter colour into your wardrobe, whilst still being able to team with all the neutrals we all love.  Again I went with my normal size 8 & due to it's longer length just know it's going to be perfect for teaming with jeans & leather leggings alike.

The final item I chose was their boyfriend jeans, that are available in several shades.   I opted to go with the soft black finish as come Autumn I have the perfect oversized black blazer I want to team these with.  In terms of sizing, you probably know by now that I like my boyfriend jeans to be more of a straight leg than oversized look so I went down a size to a 6 & these fit perfectly.
