As a rule, I'm generally quite reluctant to step out of my style comfort zone, but sometimes it's great to refresh your wardrobe with a couple of adventurous purchases. I posted last month about my new found love for the jumpsuit, and have been on the lookout for similarly simple pieces over the last couple of weeks. Whilst hunting for the perfect style can prove a bit of a nightmare (and occasionally a real changing room battle!), finding the right one is really rewarding - especially if you're on the lookout for a smart alternative to wearing trousers and blouses all of the time. One of my outfits from the weekend featured another recent jumpsuit-shaped addition to my wardrobe, as well as a real gem of a vintage discovery:

 Jumpsuit- River Island
Bag- Vintage (via Rokit)
Shoes- Topshop
Sunglasses- Vintage

 This jumpsuit was a recent purchase from River Island, and a piece which I instantly fell in love with. It's really simple, and something which I think is an ideal staple for dressing up or styling more casually. It's also really comfortable and perfect for adapting to our unpredictable weather! Keeping things simple, here I teamed it with some basic flats from Topshop and a new addition to my handbag collection in the shape of this pastel blue treasure from Rokit. After spying it in their Covent Garden store a couple of weeks ago, I instantly snapped it up as it's such a classic design and something which I know will complement a lot of my existing wardrobe favourites. Teamed with my favourite pair of vintage sunglasses, this was definitely a take on modern dressing with a splash of retro inspiration!
