if I had to wear one outfit for the rest of my life…

Now if you’ve been reading my blog or have been following me on Twitter for a while you might know the answer to the blog title but this was actually a pretty tough decision.

It was a toss up between a white tshirt and a striped top but I went with the latter – because I think it just looks great in all seasons (white could look too summery in winter months) the weird thing is I’ve actually put so much thought into an outfit I probably (definitely) won’t wear every day for the rest of my life but ya know, if I did it would be this one. A striped top, straight denim jeans and a pair of cute trainers. I had no idea what jacket I would wear but I guess I would probably change that every season depending on the weather. 
I wear stripes wayyyyy too much, literally all my friends are probably sick of seeing me wearing them but they’re just so damn versatile and there is such a variety of striped tops around (shout out to Urban Outfitters because they seem to have an endless supply of ones I like). The denim jeans are a change from black and I think I’d get less bored wearing them – personally I think denim jeans go better with the top that I paired it with! 
Finishing off the outfit with my beloved Stan Smiths, they’re white but the accent of green is just pretty cute and pulls the whole outfit together. I went for a simple look because I know if I had to wear this for the rest of my life I would want to wear something classic and I feel this hits the brief perfectly! It’s not too ‘on trend’ but it’s still up to date and quite classic so wouldn’t go out of style easily.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What’s one item of clothing you couldn’t live without?

    This outfit is so classic, it's a perfect outfit to wear forever, because it'll definitely never go out of style, ha! I think I could never live without dresses, I just love them too much!

    I never wear dresses so I could probably live without them, this is definitely a me outfit! 🙂 xx

    I love stripes too especially navy ones. If I could wear stripes every single day I would. 🙂
    I love a good pair of denim as well.

    I was really wanting a pair of Stan Smiths last May/June but they soon became to mainstream for me (i like to be original with my shoe choices lol) If I had to wear one outfit for the rest of my life it'd probably be a pair og my (faded) black jeans with these cool zipper details, a super light + soft sweater and my Vans slip ons!

  8. Eleanor Pritchard 9th April 2016 at 7:30 pm

    Yeah they are super popular now although I still love them, they just seem to go with everything. Your outfit sounds so nice!

  9. Cara E 10th April 2016 at 3:05 am

    This is such a cool post idea and I love your outfit, the Stans are awesome! Mine would probably be a plaid skirt, denim jacket and brogues as that's my go to when I'm in a rush despite not being the most exciting thing xx

    If I were to only wear one outfit for the rest of my life it'd look pretty similar! Stripey top, jeans and trainers – the one. Looks good, but feels good too!

    Great post idea! I have way too many striped tops haha, they're so easy and look great too! My everyday outfit would be really similar to this, the only change probably being white converses instead 🙂
    Thanks for leaving your link in the #bloggerationchat!

    Thank you! I don't own a pair of white converse but they look really nice 🙂 x

  13. Eleanor Pritchard 10th April 2016 at 10:12 am

    Thank you so much! I love my denim jacket but I didn't want to do the whole double denim thing so I left it out! xx

  14. Eleanor Pritchard 10th April 2016 at 10:12 am

    Totally! All about comfort but style as well 🙂 xx

    I love wearing stripes. Such a nice post. My go to outfit is black high waisted jeans, a white t-shirt and a plaid shirt over the top. I wear ok many plaid shirt shirts I think I own like 7 but they're my favourite thing to wear. Katie x

  16. Eleanor Pritchard 10th April 2016 at 5:33 pm

    Thank you! I love wearing high wasited jeans and also own wayyy too many plaid shirts haha! x

  17. Ana Picazzo 10th April 2016 at 8:11 pm

    I really want to get a pair of those shoes! I've been looking for them everywhere! Love your outfit choice, I probably would't know how to pick if I had to wear only one outfit for the rest of my life.

    Thank you! They sell them in most shoe shops but try office and scuch as they definitely have them in there 🙂

  19. Lauren Victoria 11th April 2016 at 5:20 pm

    This is such a great post idea! I love the look of those jeans and you can never go wrong with a striped top xx

    Thank you! I agree that you can never go wrong! 🙂 xx

  21. Eleanor Pritchard 12th April 2016 at 3:05 pm

    Thank you!! I definitely agree with you and get the trainers ! I know you'll love them 🙂 xx

  22. Faye Jenkins 12th April 2016 at 8:16 pm

    Good choice! I think I would swap the stripy top out for a plain white shirt but the rest would be pretty close to my picks too!

    A cute, classic outfit! I don't have any one clothing item I can't live without, but I couldn't cope if I couldn't wear high heels ever again. I live and breathe for high heels. XOXO

  24. Eleanor Pritchard 13th April 2016 at 6:34 am

    Thank you! It's a pretty basic outfit but I think it would last a long time! x

  25. Eleanor Pritchard 13th April 2016 at 6:38 am

    Thank you 🙂 funnily enough I've never worn heels before so I could definitely live without them! xoxo

  26. Emma Copland 13th April 2016 at 7:22 pm

    This is such a cool outfit, I think mine would be similar but with black jeans and vans.

  27. Olivia Heywood 13th April 2016 at 7:28 pm

    This would be my outfit too! I have so many variations of striped tops but they all have a slight difference haha! I have been looking at some Stan smiths so I may have to go and do some shopping:) X

    Very cute outfit! I love stripes aswell, I went through a phase of only buying striped tops and I had to ban myself from buying anymore ha. And I love the Stan Smiths. I recently got the Superstars, but I have Stan Smiths on my list, I'm just not sure which colour I want.

    Thank you! Black jeans are definitely an essential as well 🙂

  30. Eleanor Pritchard 13th April 2016 at 8:27 pm

    They're such good shoes! I have so many variations to but I never get sick of stripes! X

  31. Eleanor Pritchard 13th April 2016 at 8:29 pm

    My friends have actually made me go on a ban so I don't buy anymore haha! I love the green pair as I've never really seen any green trainers before! They accent an outfit really well 🙂

    Oh that's such a tough question! One outfit?! But think you nailed it!

    I'm the worst person to be asking what I would wear for the rest of my life because my answer would be boring. Maybe a black long dress, with black jeans, beige/nude coloured kimono and a matching high tops.

    if I was comfortable with my size then I would totally choose something like yours.

    Your outfit sounds great! A black long dress would look really sleek 🙂

  36. Amy Eleanor 29th April 2016 at 6:51 pm

    I love those trainers! I've been searching recently to find some nice casual trainers for weekends and this style was just what I was looking for! I love your blog header font btw!
