For all my love of functionality however, I still like to look nice. I still like to look like I put thought into my outfit; to wear items that are well-made, suit me, and maybe most importantly, fit well. For this reason, I tend to stay very loyal to specific brands - and one of my favourite brands for 'weekend-wear' is Fat Face. Their new campaign is all about making clothes which are 'familiar, yet stylish' - which definitely sums up my approach to casual-wear to a T. I've styled up four of my favourite items from their Summer range, and put them to the test with some classic Rosie weekend activities.
First up, I took one of their twill check shirts and a pair of 'dirty' skinny jeans for a dog walk...
shirt: fat face, £35* | boots: barbour, old | scarf: primary | hat: asos, old
I've wanted a denim mini skirt for ages but always been unsure that I could pull it off. I dream of looking as cool as Steffy from Steffy's Pros and Cons in hers (I'm definitely wearing it with a slogan crew neck jumper next - I love her 'I Did My Best' sweater!) This skirt has just the right amount of stretch to indulge in an ice cream or two at the beach, and looks great with tights and sneakers - though I can't wait for days when I can wear it with bare legs and flip flops!
The final item is this dreamy denim shirt dress - perfect for a windy amble around a lake whilst catching up with friends...
dress: fat face, £45* | trench coat: esprit, old
bag: kate spade, old
