Sometimes I write these What To Wear posts because I’m trying out a new trend that I like or because I want to share with you guys ideas about how to wear a particular trend. Other times I might just be particularly pleased with an outfit. I might share them because they make me happy. And lastly, sometimes I think I’ll share something that’s quite simple and today’s outfit is one of those. Despite my interest in fashion and trends, the majority of the time I’m running around doing exactly what you guys do. This last weekend that included an informal day time housewarming-come-baby shower, followed by a trip to see my brother and sister-in-law and my niece for dinner, then breakfast with them and their friends, followed by general Sunday slouching. I know you guys like seeing how a real person wears things so I thought I’d share my weekend outfit…
Being British, my clothing is generally dictated, and oft thwarted by the weather. This weekend saw a window of warmer weather before the cold returned (I took these on Sunday when it was freezing – hence the red nose and slightly strained expression!) and I was desperate to wear my new purchase from Whistles (don’t forget the 25% discount with Grazia – today is the last day you can pick one up in the shops, but you can use the online code until Tuesday the 13th.) I’ve been lusting after this oversized yellow striped knit for several weeks and snapped it up as soon as the discount came out.
Something else I was desperate to wear was this chunky turquoise and royal blue necklace that I shared last weekend, from Banana Republic and it turned out the brights worked really well together. On sunny Saturday I wore them both with my pink trousers, but when the weather changed slightly I switched to more season appropriate jeans and black accessories – my trusty leather jacket (the extended shoulder leather jacket, also from Whistles) and new pointy flats from GAP (even better, their spring sale starts today with up to 50% off with free shipping today only on orders over £30. Use the code FREE30!) I’m just loving a pointed toe right now.
For me at the moment, it’s still all about making new season style work in the never ending British winter and this outfit certainly cheered me up dispute the weather cooling down.
As always, let me know what you’re wearing right now and if I’ve inspired your style choices…
