If your a regular reader here then you'll probably realise that my wardrobe contains around four brands that I constantly wear (Cos, Stories, APC and YMC). I'd never really thought about it before; untill the other day when I had a conversation with a friend... who said that she never wear's more than one item at a time from a specific shop / Brand. In other words she likes to wear a number of different brands at one time. She didn't say why but it confused me nevertheless and got me thinking about society's 'do's and dont's' when it comes to fashion. Is it bad to sport a full outfit by one brand? Or as a blogger to continually share the same brands over and over? I would love to know your thoughts. I don't think its a bad thing to wear lots of different brands but all the same I don't believe it's bad to wear just one brand, if that's your thing.

In my opinion, I'm am 100% here for sticking to what you know. If a brand does amazing quality garments or you like their ethos or if they offer the perfect fitting trousers then why not buy every single pair from them?

In this post I'm basically wearing head to toe Stories. It's where I work part time and is a brand that I absolutely love. Their brand message of 'telling your own story' is a concept that runs throughout the store; anyone and everyone can find a piece they will love. They also say that you should be able to walk into the store and create your full look, from outfit, to scent to make up. And this is something that I'm completely on board with.

What's more, as a blogger I think it's so important to share exactly what you love as well as what you wear on a regular basis. Whether this means repeating items or wearing a full outfit by one brand. It shouldn't be frowned upon because your not wearing or sharing a million different brands. Keeping things simple means you will always be 100% happy with what you've invested your money in.

In this post I thought I'd go back to basics (as usual), with pieces that are not only timeless but comfortable and versatile. 

I'm a student, and I spend most of my time either at university, commuting or at work on the shop floor. Therefore comfort to me is a top priority, but I also have to feel great in what I wear, this aspect comes from the design of something or where it's made. That's why these New Balance 991 (made in England) have been on my feet constantly since Christmas (the best gift from Jake, who I also bought a pair for! great minds think a like) 

And no, this wasnt a sponsored post.
