What to Wear: Transitional Rotations

Just a quick post this afternoon because as you read this I’ll be in London, preparing to go to the Cosmo Blog Awards. It’s set to be quite the event and hopefully I’ll have something exciting to share with you when I get back – keep your fingers crossed please!!

In the meantime, it seemed like an opportune moment to share my ‘other’ London Fashion Week Outfit – Day 1. (What I wore on Day 2)

Dress (seen as skirt) Zara // Jumper – Whistles // Heels – Nine West // Bag – Mulberry //

I always find ‘dressing for London’ tricky. That may sound odd, but every time I’m there, I’m on a mad dash to get as much done as humanly possible. I usually have appointments, often an evening engagement and might travel down and/or up on the train on the day so versatility is key, never mind the fashion fear of having to look representative of the stylish life I aspire to share with you all. It’s a complete nightmare involving heels, cool clothes to avoid getting sweaty on the train/tube, emergency flats and usually a hefty dose of compromise.

This was one such compromise although it’s also a great reminder to utilise your summer outfits over again as layered items for Autumn where appropriate. I still haven’t gotten over my love for this digital print dress (seen here and here before,) and the weather was lovely enough to allow me to wear summery styles. That said, I wanted to keep it a bit more muted to lend the dress-as-a-skirt to autumn. Enter my favourite jumper right now, my Whistles (did I mention they have 25% off right now?) ‘Angel’ jumper – Navy, slouchy, and scattered with sequins, it looks great with everything from jeans to fancy skirts like this one.

Finished with my lilac sky high heels, I was ready for Any Other Party.

Big thanks to Gemma for taking the pics 🙂


What to Wear: Spring time stripes

This morning’s what-to-wear is a basic item, but it’s fresh and spring like with its nautical stripes and more importantly given the abysmal weather we’ve been experiencing of late, it’s on the warmer side of spring appropriate clothing.

It’s also (whisper it) a bargain.

Jumper // Jeans – Citizens of Humanity (old) // Flats – Dune (old) // Bangle // Bayswater //

I spotted this striped jumper in H&M a couple of weeks ago and pounced on it. I do like loose clothes, they’re flattering, comfortable and easy to wear (aside from the regular jeans I’ve paired it with here, I’ve teamed it with my cobalt blue jeans and of course the pink trousers too already.) I’d been keeping my eyes peeled for a couple of summer sweaters as we’re heading off on holiday soon and the San Francisco weather could be quite cool when we arrive stateside, so I don’t want to be caught out.

I love the bell shaped sleeves, the over-sized shape (I’m wearing a medium,) and the cute gold buttons on the shoulders of this jumper. For a bargain £19.99 I snapped it up in a hurry. Perfect for shopping! I also added to my enamel bangle collection with the cream and grey pyramid bangle I’m wearing here, also a bargain £6.99.

Totally not the point of this post but the star of the pictures, is my rather lovely birthday (and forthcoming anniversary!) present from Pete too, my gorgeous hot fuschia Bayswater. I’m loving the colour pop against the navy and cream outfit.

Form an orderly queue then ladies with a crisp £20 in hand…


PS, Want to see more ways to wear this jumper? I featured it in my Paris packing tips for Michelle over on Pocketful of Dreams.
PPS, big thanks to my sister for stepping in as my photographer for these shots. I think she did rather well 🙂
