Topshop Arid in black leather (tan here), Zara fringed scarf, old black Zara jeans, black Uniqlo merino sweater (this year’s here), All Saints Papin leather jacket. Excuse the smooch on the mirror from my baby girl, now cleaned.
This was supposed to be Day Fringing, Night Fringing. Tonight I was hoping to go and meet my bestest friends, but the week that was has made it impossible.
I was planning to wear my Next fringed boots, black All Saints Aiers blazer, ASOS fringed cape, Uniqlo silk shirt (this one is “silk touch”, I’m very tempted by this), with Zara black jeans. Not to be. I was digging round to find an old bag today and found this which I’d totally forgotten about, one of my best buys of the summer. I wouldn’t have carried it tonight with all the fringing going on but it will be great for the winter party season. There’s a sale on as ASOS at the moment, it is reduced to £16. Worth a look.
Anyway, a huge mwah to the glorious All Worn Out gang who are painting the town red.
A few outfits I’ve tried out but not been entirely sure about. Zara dress, over the knee boots, old Cos coatigan.
I bought these boots in Italy last year. They were an expensive purchase and I spent a long time in the shop trying to decide which of two pairs I wanted. I’ve always felt that I make the wrong choice. I’m determined to get some wear out of them this winter though and enjoyed putting them on the other morning.
The coatigan is from Cos a few years ago and was a present from my dad. This current offering from Cos is slightly fluffy and comes in several colours, I’m considering the camel. I am a huge fan of Cos, brilliant quality for the price.
I love this denim dress I got from Topshop this summer. The length should actually make it easier to wear in winter with tights to maintain my modesty. Here with ancient brown leather boots I’m pleased I’ve kept. I don’t really like the gap between the skirt and boots and won’t wear these together again.
Yesterday I wore one of the loveliest things I own. My partner bought me this Jaeger cashmere jumper years ago and it really is like being wrapped in a beautifully soft blanket. I normally wear a grey roll neck underneath but we were going to family for dinner and so I wore this less warm & Other Stories shirt with Zara skinnies and Office shoes. Northmore flares (sold out but similar here and MiH Marrakesh reduced here), Acne Pistols, Uniqlo black cashmere roll neck, Mango jacket. This felt very strange.
Ending with these beauties that I am sure about. They are from Next and I saw them on The Frugality. They’re faux suede but they don’t look cheap and the pom pom is lovely. They do feel a tad hard at the back of the heel but I often find that with Next shoes and always wear them round the house a fair bit before venturing out in them.
That’s it from me. I am going back to jeans and trainers for a few days!
So the Zara leather bell bottoms arrived. They are very long so I’ve had to tuck them under in these photos. We are all a bit under the weather too so overlook my pallor. With a Uniqlo black silk shirt, Mango denim shirt and Zara kitten heels. I tried them with my new Boden roll neck (the mineral green colour) and liked it but the photos haven’t come out.
I have a medium (they don’t do L at the moment) and they’re a bit tight on my tummy but leather has to be as it gives.
They quality of the leather is good, not as buttery soft as my All Saints leather jacket or Theory leather leggings but good. They need shortening obviously and they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I love them! I will wear them with a silk shirt and my All Saints tux. Christmas parties sorted.
I have this crepe jumpsuit too. I’ll have to be careful with the waist but it is very easy to wear and ever so comfortable.
Thanks for all the cape advice. I will decide over the weekend.
