Feb Faves Featuring: The Utility trend

Every month I find it routine to see what new products have arrived into stores, and it appears that the utilty trend is the next big thing. I love the whole uniform meets safari sort of style and I'm a big fan of the neutral colour palette, see some of my fave garments and accessories in shops and online at the mo.
Topshop have done it again with some stunning staple garments this season. What particually caught my eye was this relaxed tailored sleeveless jacket, great for a smart casual look day or night. This simple white number is something I would like to call an investment buy, this is because it will go with so much which will enable you to get full wear out of it so that its price tag of £48 doesn't seem so bad.
This cute cropped shell top in a deep khaki would be great worn with the sleeveless jacket and accessories mentioned,  finish of fwith some black skinny jeans and you'll be good to go! This top, also from Topshop retails at £36.
I am a sucker for vintage items and if like me you are too I recommend you pay a visit to Invaluable.com, a website I recently discovered that hosts worldwide auctions for the most gorgeous pieces of designer jewelery and watches. Can we all take a minute to appreciate this gorgeous necklace watch. It is a Longines brand watch so it will no doubt eternally be on my wish list but that's where invaluable is also brilliant as there always new items up for auction so my fingers are crossed something similar more within my budget will pop up soon!
In full agreement with the saying that there is no such thing as too many shoes, I hope to add these Zara beauties to my collection. I adore the slipper style and practically live my life in flats so I think it would be a justifiable purchase don't you? For £29.99 a pretty reasonable price too.
Another Zara find is this tote bag in prettiest nude colour, the perfect, practical sized accessory to have on your arm in keeping with the utility trend. It is on sale at an affordable £29.99.
