La Bambina is almost 6 months old now and her seemingly limitless appetite has seen me drop a dress size. I was going through my wardrobe the other day to see what fits and felt a bit nauseous when I saw how many “mistakes” I have hanging unworn in there. I went through them, added a few to the eBay pile and decided to made an effort this week to wear a different “mistake” every day.
It has been cold in London and there was even some snow on Monday but it didn’t settle. My focus has been on keeping warm for days spent in and out of the house. My sister still has my Barbour Arctic Parka so I have been wearing my grey Zara coat with pleather sleeves.
This J Crew jumper is a beautiful shade of orange – a deep tangerine. I ordered it when they had a sale on several months ago but the raglan sleeves do nothing for my ample bosom so I returned it…. Only to have it returned to me a few weeks later along with the yellow crew neck I blogged before. I dithered for so long I’d missed the returns period. Blush. I am determined to wear it though. Here with DvF cashmere Atomic Leopard scarf, Hudson Nico skinnies, Cafe’Noir grey boots.
Having enjoyed wearing a bright colour on a dull day, I dug out a massive woolly scarf my mum bought me from Cos last year and wore it with Zara skinnies, my beloved Jaeger cashmere jumper from years ago (over a Uniqlo heattech) and Cafe’Noir boots. When I got home I swapped the boots for Celtic Sheepskin slippers and felt like I was wrapped in a clothing hug.
I had to change the scarf for a Reiss snood later in the day when I wanted to put La Bambina in the sling.
Today I am wearing Zara skinnies, Cafe’Noir boots (again), black Gap Pure roll neck and a fluffy waistcoat from River Island that I bought on eBay. I didn’t look at the photos properly before I bid and was surprised when it arrived that it is so cropped and not proper faux fur. I actually quite like it now though and my baby is very keen. Her big sister suggested I look like a teddy bear which I think is a compliment.
