Today this photo we have all seen many times was my source of inspiration. All hail the amazing Ms. Alt.
And though I had my heels ready to wear today, after a run yesterday evening, my knees begged me to wear sneakers today.
Sneakers – Adidas Samoas // Trousers – Zara // T-shirt – Splendid // Jacket – Zara
These khaki utility harems are wonderful but sadly are from Zara last year. But fear not I have found some great alternatives that will allow you to play around with the khaki color trend, while taking you into summer.
These culottes are gorgeous and can be dressed down with sneakers and a black or white tee.
Many of my blogging friends have and love these TopShop distressed utility pants – I love the fit having tried them on the other day in our new store. Again they are great for dressing up or down with sneakers or heels.
If you prefer a bit more drape these wrap front joggers are gorgeous.
A cheaper alternative are these joggers from New Look. At just $36 they are a bargain!
I love this pair from Warehouse – a gorgeous drapey fabric and a little dressier than the New Look pair.
These are probably the closest in style that I have found to mine – but with less of a dropped crotch, so I know many of you will prefer these. They have 3% elastane so will have a nice stretch to them
If you prefer more of a utility trouser here is a great alternative to the distressed TopShop pair.
Now don’t style them like this but these culottes are actually cord so also give a nod to the 70s trend. They are lovely and will be perfect with sandals too in the summer.
Finally if you’re somewhere like Atlanta, where temperatures are already rising, try this linen pair. Gorgeous with a crisp white shirt as shown here, and just $40.
As for my jacket – well I think it might turn into one of those items that many bloggers own – it is gorgeous and I love the cut at the back too. It’s going to be really versatile with jeans and trousers. I am wearing a Large.
There you go – now you are all set to work your Emmanuelle inspired looks too!
