I’m a much happier person in lock-down when the sun is shining. I’m sure you are the exact same.
These grey rain filled afternoons have been terrific for the lavender and sage in the garden but have left my spirits all squelchy and damp. I’ve done a round up here of what I have been wearing this week, as well as reading and watching on the telly.
I’ve cheered myself up this week with these pieces which are comforting constants in my wardrobe for cooler days when a Summer dress isn’t an option.
I’ve fallen head over heels for flares this season. I think they have so much more personality than other denims. These high-waisted ones are from & Other Stories and come in a variety of different tempting shades. They are immensely easy to style with a blazer, a t-shirt, or a Summer knit.
I’ve linked all of these options below from this fluffy jumper from French brand Sezane – it also has a little cut-out at the back, to this black wrap-around soft jacket from Arket.
The ecru top is from Zara and looks more expensive than its price tag. I’ve paired them with these toffee coloured trousers also from Arket .
As well as these wardrobe pieces other things that have lifted my spirits this rainy lock-down week have been flowers for my pot stand from Zara home, a favourite vase which is featured all over my Instagram. – @thestylistandthewardrobe.
I’ve turned into a massive flowers person over the past few months and I am currently up to my neck in peonies, -very bullish about making the most of these gorgeous creatures before they disappear again for another year.
A good book for rainy days is essential and thanks to a clever friend’s recommendation, I’m in the middle of reading ‘Exciting Times’ by Naoise Dolan, another Irish young author, but with a slightly more droll, and sarcastic voice which I’m very much loving.
I’ve also watched two good movies this week- Woody Allen’s ‘Rainy Day In New York’ and High-Note with beautiful Dakota Johnson.
