Kate Sylvester top, Helmut Lang blazer, J Brand leather pants, Topshop heels, Yves Saint Laurent clutch I’ve been taking a more relaxed approach to dressing up lately, usually along the lines of a pair of leather pants/leggings, a nice top or blouse and a blazer topped off with some demure looking court shoes.
