03.08.2014- What I Wore Today #197

Although this week has been a little bit cooler in London (the jeans are back out!), it's still a little bit stifling- particularly on the Tube. As I've mentioned in a few posts before, when it's summer in the city I tend to live in comfortable basics, and, in lieu of being able to leave the house in my pyjamas, I've been reaching for loose fitting, lightweight pieces- some of which probably wouldn't look out of place amongst my sleepwear. Despite attracting some funny looks from the commuters on the 7:27 of a morning, comfort is key for me when it's warm- and I've been really enjoying styling some old summer staples and new favourites of late: 

Blouse- Topshop 
Trousers- Sonia by Sonia Rykiel (via eBay) 
Shoes- Birkenstock (via ASOS) 
Bag- Zara 

These Sonia by Sonia Rykiel trousers have proven to be absolute lifesavers this summer, and they're absolutely ideal for this type of weather. Since I snapped them up on eBay, they've become real staples, particularly as the print is so easy to team with some off favourite basics. Here I styled them with a rather ancient blouse from Topshop, injecting a pop of colour, and my Birkenstocks- suffice it to say that I've broken them in enough after their first outing for them now to be ultra comfortable! 

How have you been styling your summer staples?
