Back in university I used to always think, 'when I graduate I'll start shopping at Whistles.'
When you're a student you think you'll have a bigger disposable income when you graduate... that you'll get a job where you'll need to look respectable. Oh, how reality fails to live up to our expectations - hah. Despite the fact that I can work most days in my pajamas, I still view Whistles as being aspirational. It might be a high street shop but something about it oozes luxury. I don't go shopping that often but, honestly, every time I've gone into Whistles I've found tons of beautiful pieces. Most notably: sweet little dresses, nice trousers, and bucket loads of covetable knits and T-shirts.
This afternoon I received the brand's pre-fall look book and my jaw sort of hit the floor a little. Whistles, have you had your eye on street style trends lately? The slouchy silky printed pajama style trousers and varsity-light baseball jacket are totally Jak & Jil worthy, no? Above are my four favorite looks. The styling is lovely and simple which I like a lot. In an ideal world, I'd be wearing the entire outfit on the bottom left tomorrow. But with Converse not heels... I don't do heels on flights (that's just silly). A leather top with a peplum also made an appearance. I know, right?! Do you even understand the obsession I've been having with peplums? It's die-hard.
