Morning ladies & happy Wednesday.  How crazy is it that we're already at the end of August?  I can't believe where this year is going & whilst I'll be sad to see summer come to an end, one thing I am excited about is the arrival of all the new season clothing.  So today let's take a look at what Baukjen have in store for us.  

As you'll know by now I'm a huge fan of timeless style & one of the many things that Baukjen always gets spot on is their effortless designs.  Wardrobe pieces that will stand the test & wear of time, that you'll find yourself bringing out season after season.  So with this in mind today I'm featuring my edit of effortless fashion from their latest drop.  

Starting with their Boyfriend Jean.  A slightly looser fit on the leg than a straight leg that is perfect for wearing everyday with flats as well as dressing up for a night out with heels. I just love everything about how they've styled the pair above - Parisian chic at it's best!

Talking of French fashion, if like me you're partial to a stripe or two, then you'll know how useful it is to have several different style & weight bretons hanging in your wardrobe.  Baukjen's Ashley Top is one of their best selling tops, so much so it comes in a wide range of colours.  In fact I already have the soft white & delfts blue version hanging in my wardrobe but I just love this classic monochrome version that would be sure to get a lot of use & of course is ideal for pairing with all the neutrals in our wardrobe together with a pop of colour.

As the temperatures drop we're all going to be reaching for knitwear & this vest style top is ideal for layering - bretons, shirts, roll necks, the options are endless & would look perfect paired with a pair of leather leggings.

Of course shirts are another wardrobe staple & for me they fall into two categories - those that have that little extra detailing, like the above Ryleigh Shirt, that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

And a loose fit classic styled shirt that's perfect for adding an element of tailoring to an everyday outfit.  Style with a pair of jeans & ballet pumps & finish the look off with the addition of some statement jewellery & you really do have an effortless look.

Or for more casual days where you need a top to wear under your leather biker jacket/blazer then a simple round neck top is ideal.  How gorgeous is the above navy Laverne Top, which would look amazing styled with a silk scarf tied at the neck & ballet pumps.

Or for pairing with a boyfriend blazer & jeans I just love their Ayla Top, which is another of their popular designs.  

my midlife fashion, baukjen neath pant

Talking of successful designs you may recall that I couldn't get enough of their Neath Pant last winter in navy - think of them as in-between a more casual pair of cigarette pants & a smarter jogger.  They're incredibly comfortable to wear & look amazing styled above with Baukjen's Ashridge jacket as well as with an oversized blazer or biker jacket.

And if you're on the lookout for an alternative to jeans these navy cargo pants would be perfect.  I just love them paired with a leather biker jacket & trainers as shown in the image above.

Equally this Essentials Cami would look great teamed with any of the trousers I've featured above, not to mention worn under an oversized shirt for a layered look.

my midlife fashion, baukjen Isla dress

Finally if you're on the lookout for an updated LBD for your wardrobe how effortless is Baukjen's Isla Dress.  Timeless, sexy & understated, I don't think you could ask for anything else in a dress!

So what have I decided to style this month?  Well never an easy decision as there's always far too much temptation but in the end I decided to go with their Ashley TopEssentials CamiThe Boyfriend JeanAdriana Cotton Sweatshirt & Neath Pant.  As I mentioned above I already have different colour variations of the Ashley Top & Neath Pant hanging in my wardrobe & love them so much that I just couldn't resist adding the latest additions!

In terms of sizing I prefer my tops not to be too fitted so I sized up in all the tops (I'm wearing a size 10) but kept with my normal size (size 8) with The Boyfriend Jean & Neath Pant.  

The Neath pants are the perfect casual trouser that would look fabulous teamed with trainers & a biker jacket, or as I've shown today styled with the Adriana Cotton Sweatshirt & Essentials Cami for a glamorous but laid back loungewear vibe.  When the day has finished & my make up has been taken off, this is the kind of look I live in come the darker & cooler months & the off the shoulder Adriana Cotton Sweatshirt helps elevate everyday loungewear into something a little bit more special, that has the 'feel good' factor.

Then come Autumn is there anything more classic than a Breton & denim combo?  I just love the Ashley top in the cream & black stripe combo.  As I mentioned above I've gone up a size to a UK10 as I prefer a slightly looser fit.  As you'll see from the image below my jeans from last month have arrived & oh my I had high expectations of these beauties & they don't disappoint!  The perfect slim fit cropped jean that I just know I'm going to get so much wear from.  True to size, I'm wearing a UK8 & the fit is spot on.  I'm hoping they do some different coloured denim in these as they really are perfect for pairing with timeless classics.
