I’ve spoken about my hunt for the perfect grey winter coat previously, as this year I’m trying to just invest in classic pieces rather than trends, I had all but given up hope when I spied this beauty in the Gap sale, only one left, in my size, was down from £99.99 to £39.99 with another 40 percent off, so for £23.99 I picked up the best bargain I have found in a while, and I’m in love with it.
An early start on a Monday after three long days is hard, but made all the more easier by knowing that there would be embellished goodness hitting the catwalk for Mother of Pearl, plus the Claridge’s setting isn’t a bad start to any morning.
But as it was early and a little chilly I went for my new Foggy London Rizzo Ida jeans by Donna Ida, I am a huge fan of her denim, I do believe that all jeans should be high-waisted, super flattering and with enough stretch to make them uber-comfortable. I have to be honest I think today’s look is my favourite, the most me, I loved the polka-dot co-ords but the combination of black, grey and a touch of red is just so what I love to wear.
The sun is shining so of course I need to get my Barbie pink on!!! OK, so this look seems like I am covered up for winter, the gorgeous Odd Molly cable knit definitely photographs heavier than it is, but when the weather is nice, bright, but still a little chilly I love wearing knitted jumpers and jeans at the weekend – and for me spring sunshine is all about those moments when you can leave the house without a coat!!!
I was introduced to Odd Molly at an event last year, I have to be honest I hadn’t heard of the Scandinavian fashion brand before, but I have really fallen in love with its contemporary boho vibe, especially the jumpers and the smock-style dresses, it really is a label all about comfort, which I love.
This coral pink Corset Sweater really caught my eye, not only for the great colour, but for the details – the front is cute with its cable knit but this beauty is all about the lace knitted tie-string to the back. It adds something a little different and it definitely makes it summer ready.
Embracing the sun and the brighter outlook with this outfit I went for my trusty Ida by Donna Ida jeans but in the ice wash, rather than my go-to dark vintage hue. I worry wearing such a light colour of denim normally, I don’t have the smallest of thighs, but there is something about Donna Ida that just makes you feel and look great.
Finishing up my look are a few fun pieces of jewellery, first up is my Flamingo adorned Anna Lou of London enamel bangle, perfect when worn with a three-quarter sleeve jumper as this beauty really needs to be shown off. Then I have my beautiful butterfly necklace from Swarovski, I just love how delicate it is, and the colours really work with this jumper.
Are you a fan of a bright jumper when embracing the sun?
