A week in Ibiza meant I disconnected from the online world for a bit in favour of sunning myself and dancing in the sand – I’m sure you would have done the same in my position! I am now back to fully functioning wifi and temperatures that permit sleeves and collars – I’m sorry but when it’s 32 degrees even a girl in menswear needs to strip off a sartorial layer or two!

Before I left for the White Isle, the lovely gents over at Topman got in touch to invite me to partake in their “it’s more than just a suit challenge”. They asked me and one of my favourite male bloggers School Boy Couture to style a “Street Smart” look by selecting some key pieces from their suit collections and mix-and-matching them with other pieces from their extensive collections. Now as you well know I am a big fan of the high street label, namely because they are one of the few menswear brands to offer sizing in XXS, and I am a particular fan of their ultra skinny tailored trousers and shirts, so I of course obliged! Now you’re going to have use your imagination a bit, but my style edit includes heritage ankle grazers, tennis shoes (no socks of course), a Herschel backpack, mac, sunnies and a collarless denim shirt – what do you think? If you approve, you can vote for my look here on their website, or grab a sneak peak of my selection below.

    So jealous that you were in Ibiza! It sounds amazing!
    I love the bag here – sometimes I just wish I could shop my whole outfit from the mens’ section…
    Great work on your blog – as always!
