So as you know I've been moaning that I am cold! To be fair expecting better weather before June was probably a bit unrealistic but hey ho a girl can dream. I have loads of summer outfits ready and waiting in my wardrobe but in the meantime I have been digging deep to find things that a are 'spring-like' but 'keep me warm'. Here are a few recent outfit ideas:
I didn't need a coat this day! I wore my Next coated skinnies with Mint Velvet blush trainers, a lace vest layer from The White Company and a Hush jumper (no longer available). And this is Katy my Westie!
This day turned out really warm and I actually went in our hot tub and dried off sitting in the garden in my swimsuit. It was cold again the next day though. My grey jeans and top are from Mint Velvet and my sandals are new from Holster Australia.
Now on this day I was too hot!! I went out in the afternoon and could easily have worn at least a long sleeve t-shirt anyway. My jumper is from Boden, my scarf is Marks & Spencer, my jeans are Gap forever skinny and my trainers are Mint Velvet (see above).
New outfit here all from Mint Velvet (I can't find the top online) plus new Adidas Stan Smiths from Next which I had been lusting after for a while but as I had my blush trainers and my superstars I resisted then I didn't resist and I now have them and they are so comfortable!
Not sure whose bottom that is disappearing but I thought it might amuse you! Another new outfit from my wandering in Windsor last week. I love my Michael Kors handbag but it is so heavy. So this new one is from Karen Millen and it is smaller and lighter and I like the monochrome look I can create as it is so simple. My breton is from Halhuber. My poncho from Jigsaw and my jeans and bag from Karen Millen, Plus Stan Smiths!
I wore this outfit to see Footloose at our local theatre at the weekend. My jacket is old from Mint Velvet, cropped jeans and handbag from Karen Millen, shirt was a sale bargain from All Saints and shoes are from Russel & Bromley.
On Friday night we went down to my home town Maidstone in Kent for dinner to celebrate my oldest friends 50th birthday! I am on the left, birthday girl Nicola in the middle and Joanna on the right - we have known each other since we were 6. We had a lovely evening as we always do and looking forward to the final 50th later in the year!
I didn't get a good outfit post of my dress, I wore a previous season Whistles dress in navy and cream.
So quite a long one today, hope there is some outfit inspiration in there somewhere.
