I traveled back down south this week for my school reunion – after leaving five years ago, I was super keen to see the school, my teachers, and (most importantly) have a glass of wine with the girls. Priorities.
So what do you wear to a school reunion? I ummed and ahhed about this – didn’t want to be too overdressed, but didn’t want to look like I didn’t care, either. In the end I opted for classic pieces in muted tones; a Lavish Alice cape blazer, scallop hem racer-back camisole and black skinny jeans, paired with a Chanel handbag and Valentino Rockstuds.

I am in love with this blazer; they’ve been insanely popular on the Lavish Alice site, so it was purely fluke I got this in my size. I would advise going a size down in this – they run a little big, especially with the shoulder pads – but I do quite like the oversized tailored look.
Missguided jeans get a big thumbs up from me, as they’re really similar to the Topshop Joni style for less than half the price. My black scallop cami from New Look was a Billy bargain in the Asos sale, and my Valentinos pulled the whole outfit together, adding an edgy twist to an otherwise plain look.
