Outfit 1: Monochrome Edge to Chic
My favourite type of style is to be in either all black or black and white, a tailored blazer, chic clutch bag or chain shoulder bag some awesome sunnies and comfortable footwear. Who would have thought I could also get away with these gorgeous pair of leather trousers from River Island, a staple item you need in your wardrobe this coming season. This Monochromatic Edgy look is quite a classic one with the military styled boots with gold buckle. Chic it up a little with a change of accessories perhaps for a date or an evening out with the girls? I am wearing a stunning pair of comfortable gladiator heels and a velvet clutch holdall bag.

Outfit 2: Olive Trend
I love anything olive/khaki green in colour, River Island currently have a range of amazing items which are this colour. Another staple colour for the coming season, I paired this baseball cap with the top and amazing comfortable pair of lace up olive open toe booties. To make the look slightly fitted for everyday, I wore a pair of these light wash #RIPLUS denim jeans. A look like this would be perfect for lunch in the town with friends or how about throwing on a pair of the neatest white trainers and a rucksack for your run around the city trend! I absolutely love to play around with a classy going out type of look and changing to a run around the city comfortable look!

Sachel Bag: Ted Baker
Again playing with a pop of colour, this time mustard yellow! I personally have a habit of picking up this colour every time we hit this time of year. The off the shoulder trend is also a very much loved piece over the past few months and I am definitely adding more different styles to my collection. I love the way this top is quite loose fitted and roomy. If you are looking for a pair of absolute comfortable trousers that are also great quality, these River Island trousers would sort you just right out! I love how it tapers at the ankle, and this colour navy is actually quite simple and can be worn dressed up with these chunky platforms or a perfect pair of loafers both from River Island.
