If I had to pick one word to summarise my style throughout this week, that would be colour…
Monday: Boutique by Jaeger jumper / Primark shorts and ring / Aldo watch and shoes / NW3 bag (full post here)
Tuesday: Hat, Spitalfields market (seen here) / Topshop coat (seen here) / Zara bag (seen here) and shoes / Hobbs scarf (seen here) / NW3 cardigan (new, underneath coat) / Primark skirt (seen here, just seen)
Wednesday: NW3 cardigan (seen here) / Dorothy Perkins coat (seen here) / H&M dress (seen here) and earrings (new) / Matalan scarf / Primark belt (seen here) / Hat, Spitalfields market / ASOS watch / Necklace and bag, gifts / Zara shoes
More than intentional, going for colour this week felt natural. It was nice wearing not just bright colours but also sorbet shades (on Thursday) – all in all, it sort of felt like I either was revisiting my summer looks and giving them a winter spin or simply reinterpreting them. How very intellectual of me!
What was definitely intentional was the variety of bags. If you check out my recent Monday to Friday posts you’ll notice that I’ve basically been doing a somewhat limited bag rotation – I can’t bring myself to call it laziness, I’ve just become extremely attached to the two latest bags in my life (worn on Monday and Wednesday)! But I have loads of bags and shouldn’t put any of them in a corner – it was great rediscovering many of these babies.
Wearing so much colour this week meant that my neutral Dorothy Perkins coat would come in handy. I was even a bit naughty on Friday and went for an animal species mix. I love my coat to bits and can’t believe that I’ve had it for about a year already, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I could do with a neutral coat that’s not furry and most importantly, NOT black – off white, cream or grey would be fab. I don’t think December’s a great month for coat shopping, since most shops are just about to get ready for spring. Also, I’m not really sure what style I’m after – oversize would be cool but is extremely challenging for shorties like me. This is not going to be an easy task – wish me luck!
