I’ve been busy enjoying half term. Hope you had as good a break as us.
On to clothes.
So I started to go out like this on the first night of half term but an overtired Little Legs melted down with loathing for my “bin bag trousers” and so I got changed. Monday I tried it again.
Zara pleather trousers, Adidas Superstars, J Crew Tippi, Next bomber jacket, Anya Hindmarch mini Gracie. It was quite warm in London, well 7 degrees, but pouring down. More important than staying dry, I needed a coat I could take off and stash easily. That ruled out my parka and all my wool coats so I layered up a Tippi with a Heattech and cashmere scarf and my Next sweatshirt jersey bomber on top.
We spent the early part of the week up at the brilliant Imagine festival at the Southbank. The Bouncing Cats and Boom Boom Pups was our highlight. Not many kids’ events end with a Junglist After Party and parents and kids throwing shapes together. We loved it.
Zara jeans, Adidas Superstars, Iris & Ink cashmere roll neck, Cos grey coat, ancient Jeepers Peepers sunnies.
Red Cos pixel dress, Falke tights, over the knee boots from Italy.
We ended the week with a few days in the beautiful New Forest to celebrate our anniversary.
Zara jeans, Uniqlo Heattech under J Crew khaki merino jumper, Toga Pullas, Per Una Speziale coat.
Night out in Next black strap heels, Zara jeans, Cos shirt with leather collar, & Other Stories black leather clutch. The jeans were a last minute change – the leather leggings I’d planned to wear were just a step too far for the laid back restaurant we went to.
Obligatory photo with a New Forest pony! Boden cashmere Off Duty jumper, Zara jeans, Ugg Gershwins, Woolrich parka.
If you follow me on Instgram you’ll have seen that I’ve had a hair cut!
My hair is totally straight naturally. I’m going to have to plait it every night to get a bit of a wave I think.
Before I go, I’ve had a flares post I’ve been waiting to finish since early January. Truth is I have a few pairs but and I am struggling greatly with how to wear them. Tops I can kind of do, footwear is a fail every time. I’ve tried Toga Pullas (on the basis you can only see the lovely pointy toe), Ash Jalouse, old Zara high heel boots, old black Zara pointed high heel boots, old M&S black suede pointed heels boots, Superstars, Stan Smiths. So I really have a footwear gap in my wardrobe?? I might give them another go this week if the rain stays away. Let me know if you’ve had success with them.
Have a happy Monday.
