Elegance Simplified

Outfit: Trench Coat- Zara (seen here and here); Jeans and Blouse- Primark; Sunglasses - Market in Paris; Sandals - Topshop





A lesson I really ought to learn from my sister - how to look elegant in such a simple outfit. For one of our walks along the beach she chose to wear her trench tied tightly at the middle as the feature of the outfit, along with these rolled up skinnies and a lightly detailed blouse. Perfect for an afternoon stroll.
