if I had to wear one outfit for the rest of my life...


Now if you've been reading my blog or have been following me on Twitter for a while you might know the answer to the blog title but this was actually a pretty tough decision.

It was a toss up between a white tshirt and a striped top but I went with the latter - because I think it just looks great in all seasons (white could look too summery in winter months) the weird thing is I've actually put so much thought into an outfit I probably (definitely) won't wear every day for the rest of my life but ya know, if I did it would be this one. A striped top, straight denim jeans and a pair of cute trainers. I had no idea what jacket I would wear but I guess I would probably change that every season depending on the weather. 

I wear stripes wayyyyy too much, literally all my friends are probably sick of seeing me wearing them but they're just so damn versatile and there is such a variety of striped tops around (shout out to Urban Outfitters because they seem to have an endless supply of ones I like). The denim jeans are a change from black and I think I'd get less bored wearing them - personally I think denim jeans go better with the top that I paired it with! 

Finishing off the outfit with my beloved Stan Smiths, they're white but the accent of green is just pretty cute and pulls the whole outfit together. I went for a simple look because I know if I had to wear this for the rest of my life I would want to wear something classic and I feel this hits the brief perfectly! It's not too 'on trend' but it's still up to date and quite classic so wouldn't go out of style easily.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What's one item of clothing you couldn't live without?

  8. I was really wanting a pair of Stan Smiths last May/June but they soon became to mainstream for me (i like to be original with my shoe choices lol) If I had to wear one outfit for the rest of my life it'd probably be a pair og my (faded) black jeans with these cool zipper details, a super light + soft sweater and my Vans slip ons!

  10. If I were to only wear one outfit for the rest of my life it'd look pretty similar! Stripey top, jeans and trainers - the one. Looks good, but feels good too!

  11. Great post idea! I have way too many striped tops haha, they're so easy and look great too! My everyday outfit would be really similar to this, the only change probably being white converses instead :)

  17. Good choice! I think I would swap the stripy top out for a plain white shirt but the rest would be pretty close to my picks too!

  21. Very cute outfit! I love stripes aswell, I went through a phase of only buying striped tops and I had to ban myself from buying anymore ha. And I love the Stan Smiths. I recently got the Superstars, but I have Stan Smiths on my list, I'm just not sure which colour I want.

  25. I'm the worst person to be asking what I would wear for the rest of my life because my answer would be boring. Maybe a black long dress, with black jeans, beige/nude coloured kimono and a matching high tops.

    if I was comfortable with my size then I would totally choose something like yours.
