Khaki jacket & keeping it simple

street style

Don't you just love it when you come across something you know is going to work with so many things and be used over and over again. As I am trying to minimalise so much of life right now so when purchasing clothes I know are going to contribute to a cohesive capsule wardrobe for the coming season is really important. I've been looking for a simple olive green/khaki jacket for a while so when I came across this one in TopShop I knew it would be a good choice and while I had a more tailored shirt or jacket in mind I really love that this one is more loose and casual.

I have paired up this jacket with a simple white tee from Mango and a pair of skinny jeans with Ankle boots from Wallis and a Bowler hat from Urban Outfitters with some glasses from the H&M Conscious recycled plastic collection. At the moment I am really enjoying keeping things fairly simple and adding to it, I do however love the colour but I am just playing around with a few things as I just to reduce any excess in the house and I did add a little bit of colour with my new Burts Bees lipstick.  I think this is likely to become somewhat of my go-to look this spring, what is yours this season?
