Lotus Trainers with a Salamander Shirt - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
Hope you're doing well.

I'm a tad excited as I'm off on holiday on Saturday, unless the airports or any other interventions have other ideas.  There's 18 of us travelling to Majorca to stay in an all inclusive hotel in Can Picafort (thought I'd mention that so you could avoid the area) 🤣.

I'm nearly packed and not putting too much in as I know not everything will be worn.  I always pack one pieces like dresses and jumpsuits, it makes it so much easier not having to work out what goes with what - all that I have to think about is what accessories I will need.  

Whilst I like to wear dresses, I also love to wear separates & you don't need to look too far to see that.
Today I want to share a casual outfit of jeans and shirt - a flattering and classic look that works well for everyday wear which, I hope you agree, still looks stylish.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

I like to wear a white jean occasionally and was shocked to find I had five hanging in my wardrobe the other day.  Well they are all different lengths and styles so are all very much needed.  Do you have lots of pairs of jeans to call upon?  

So having started with the white straight leg jeans I added this super stylish shirt.  I'm loving many of the styles and designs that Salamander shirts have on their website and was pleased to receive a few to review for them.  This one is a soft baby blue and white stripe* in a comfortable seersucker fabric.
This classic shirt has been popular with Grenouille customers for years, and I have to agree with them as this timeless shirt speaks for itself - just look at the brilliant fit!  I also have this in the pretty pale pink version which looks super stylish paired over cropped jeans. 

A blazer always comes in handy, especially with the weather being so up and down in the UK, so I topped the look off with my shiny navy jacket.  I like that it matched my new trainers.

Having worked with Lotus Shoes for many years, you can see I'm a big fan of their products. It's rather the norm for me to wear trainers now-a-days and I adore the relaxed and casual vibe they emit.

Kate* is the new addition to the Stressless collection from Lotus and had my eyes on them from the first look.  I was drawn to the woven design and the noticeable colour - most of my trainers are white and these are a very welcomed alternative.  The navy trainer has a leather upper, a contrasting white lace and the shock absorbing properties to make them an appealing go-to option.  With an affordable price tag just under £60, Kate maybe the one for you!
