I’ve done a round up of the wardrobe pieces that have got me through this dreary old grey lock-down week. A Summer dress wasn’t an option so I turned to other warmer stylish essentials in my wardrobe to cheer me up. I also talk about what home accessories, books and movies I have been a little obsessed with.
In my opinion no piece of clothing subtly whispers Spring-Summer than a crisp white dress. I’m pretty fussy about them though – not any old white dress will do.
I like them to have personality, style and most importantly if I invest my money in one – staying power for season after season.
I love denims and suede together and this soft as butter jacket from French brand Sezane is a joy to wear. It feels lovely to the touch and fits like a glove. I’m an 8 and took an XS for that more fitted look.
I teamed it with one of my favourite pair of favourite denims from & Other Stories.
One of the new subtle and oh so chic colours to emerge this season is this soft beautiful shade – Pistachio Green. It sets off all our other favourite classic colours wonderfully – camel, black, white and cream. One of my first purchases this season in this colour is this wool mix blazer that I am wearing here from & Other Stories. It’s absolutely perfect with black jeans/trousers and a white shirt this time of year. It could also be paired with camel or mocha brown trousers for a chic day time look or worn over an all black outfit.
It’s the start of a brand new shiny year and the perfect time to reassess your wardrobe. Did you know that detoxing your wardrobe regularly makes you a smarter more conscientious shopper?
Less mistake buys are made because you are more familiar with your naughty habits and you tend to stop and think more before you shop. Read More
Leather and pleather are everywhere this season and what a great joy that is. I haven’t been brave enough though to try a double leather look and just like my denim, I like to break up my outfit with a different texture.
Here I have teamed a fitted leather shirt with elasticated wool mix trousers , and when worn open this shacket works layered with a white t-shirt or a roll-neck.
I’ve added my favourite white boots, but this trouser would also work wonderfully with heels and a cami top for evening time. I am ready for whatever Tuesday throws at me. Everything linked !
