Step five of my wardrobe clear-out resolved to spot the spaces in your newly organised closet and fill them in. And fill them in I did, so I thought I’d show you the new additions today. After analysing the contents of my clothing home I added a striped top, strap-free sandals, a lighter wash of jeans and a black leather jacket to the list. Off I went tick-box in hand and I have to say that the task was harder than I expected. Most shops are floundering in summer/autumn confusion, but it was a chance trip to & Other Stories that ticked off the most purchases. There’s also a marmite addition (did someone say Birkenstocks?) and a black top buy because it’s a known fact that you can never have too many monochrome top-half options. Non?

    Love your new pieces, especially the striped top. I need to top up my A/W wardrobe but the thing I’m most looking forward to is the nail polish shades, its time to bring back the burgundy! Holly x

    Really like that striped tee. I had one a few years ago and I just loved to wear it under my leather jacket. It’s simple yet stylish!

    I have to say I am another person who isnt a fan of the birkenstocks, although I dont doubt that they are probably really comfortable. I love everything else you got especially the stripe top!

    I desperately need to sort out my wardrobe. And then I’ll go on the hunt for a leather jacket. Just like you I’m having the hardest time finding one I really like now that my cheap one from Pimkie has been worn to absolute death.

    I wish I had a Topshop near by, I really want to try Leigh jeans! If I knew what size to get I would order them online. Anyway, I love everything you got, but I’m a little scared to rock Birkenstocks.
