Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s been over 4 months since I posted a proper outfit post! I started this incarnation of my blog in January 2017 and it feels like a nice kind of symmetry to begin 2018 with a similar style of post. I’ve been having a big think about my blog recently, and some changes I’m going to make for this year, but that’s for another post. For now, let’s talk about velvet and layering, two of my favourite things.
- My wardrobe is a total mishmash of styles and influences. I’ve got a fair amount of mid-century style; the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are my favourite decades for sartorial inspiration. This look is much more 60’s themed though, and a perfect summer combo to cheer up London streets. This floral dress first featured on my Insta all the way back in April when I was still wearing tights! The weather finally picked up enough this August to be able to wear it with bare legs and ankle boots. I think dresses / skirts and ankle boots are basically acceptable attire from spring right through to autumn, no?
A sunny start to the week got me a bit over excited about wearing less wintery clothes. I pulled this denim mini skirt and white shirt out of the wardrobe with a thin jumper for a kind of preppy look to start the week. The trouble is, it’s still really cold so I’ve added knee high boots, tights and a duffle coat for warmth.
