Helen in her stripes

On the stripy theme again, I'm loving this look that Helen sent me this week...
Helen's sporting a striped Warehouse top layered under a black Topshop top. Leggings (also from Topshop) and amazing LK Bennett boots, finish this look.
Helen tells me that although she got her boots in the LK Bennett sale, they were still an investment piece.
But it's worth paying as much as you can afford for good boots as you'll wear them year after year:
 Here's how to re-create this look...
Dash Stripe Top - £32
Black Slouch Jumper - Topshop £45
Topshop Ankle Leggings - £12
Hobbs Jamie Elastic Boot - £169
If you have a look that you love, why not take a mirror picture and send it to schoolgatestyle@yahoo.co.uk and I might just have to award a prize to my best contributor!


  1. Oh dear...feel another spend coming up! Love this look.

    1. Hello crazywalker - it's lovely indeed. We must both stop shopping though. You are as bad an influence on me! :)

  2. Nice boots! I find it hard to get a really good slim boot! They all look like wellies on me with my skinny calves!! Love this casual style:)

    1. So many people have said to me today about boots being too wide - the complaint used to be they wouldn't zip up. You'd think the manufacturers would have the wit to use some elastic! :)
