A bit of jungle in a bomber jacket

might just be what one needs to have some impact. Combine flowers with stripes and one gets a concoction that rocks my boat. I wasn’t intending to go shy, so red lingerie like top was a must and then obviously a red bag to go with it. The only demure items are the black pencil skirt and white sandals. The jacket was another charity shop find. Whoever priced the items did not know the label as I got it for a fiver. It would have cost over a hundred fifty pounds when brand new. The weather is getting finer and looks like the bare leg season has just begun.

E’s lookbook ‘Vest on top’

Lookbook:

Blouse: Primark

Brooch unknown

Vest: Primark

Denim: Primark

Trainers; Primark

Bag: Rowallan

A cropped wide-leg denim trousers worn with a fitted buttoned-up white shirt, cream vest, white trainers and a navy blue bag.

Oh, did I feel trendy?

I felt like I have discovered something new even though it has been done many times before. Where do I start? Let us start with the trousers. I have finally found wide-leg denim that fits at a reasonable price too, so I have bought 2 pairs in 2 different colours. The pair in question needed a small adjustment as the hem was too low. the perfect length is just above your ankle bone where your leg is at its thinnest to flatter the most. I have combined it with a basic, fitted buttoned-up white shirt and added a brooch in navy blue just under the collar. But I wasn’t done yet as I decided to wear a knitted vest on top of that. The whole outfit is budget-friendly as it is mainly Primark and all of the pieces will be staples in my wardrobe that I intend to wear in different ways. It’s also navy blue and white- favourite colour combo of many people.

Wearing more pale colours in the autumn

I’m always taking advantage of the days that it didn’t rain to wear paler colours/white even in the autumn. Lots of shops do lighter colour jackets and coats. Long gone are the times when winter coats came only in dull, dark colours. The hole shift in fashion is enticing and I do get sucked into buying it and then it rains all winter long. I have pulled all things pale, new and old. The oldest is probably the bomber jacket. Pale pink and grey with metallic floral pattern, always a statement. Also like the vertical and horizontal lines of the skirt and the jacket, even though totally unintentional.

E’s lookbook ‘Rosegold sequins’

Lookbook:

Jacket handmade

Cardigan: Qued

Vest unknown

Trousers: Stradivarius

Flats: Primark

Bak: Kaemingk

Well, when you just can’t wait until next summer. I have just got this rose gold sequined top for absolute pennies and decided that today I’m going to wear it no matter what. To start with the weather is rather cold, so I need to layer. Typically I seem to have a polo neck in most colours , but not in beige. On the other hand, I do have a cardigan in such colour so it had to do. If it is a bit odd to wear a vest over a cardigan, let me tell you it’s only clothes that you take off at the end of the day. To make everything colour coordinated I went with beige trousers and a pale pink tailored jacket, pink shoes and a beige bag. And it didn’t rain today.

E’s lookbook ‘Nautical preppy’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Vest: H&M

Cardigan: Primark

Skirt: M&S

Sandals: Select

Bag: Rowallan

I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.

E’s lookbook ‘Floral print trousers’

Lookbook:

Top: Primark

Bracelet unknown

Trousers: H&M

Trainers: Primark

A wild card outfit. I got these trousers in the sale. With the current situation, you can not try anything in the fitting rooms, so they had to come home with me. To be honest, after trying them on I was not blown away but they are growing on me. The test is to be able to think of at least 3 outfits featuring them and I am going to post them as I go along. Probably it’s only a flash in the pan trend, on the other hand, floral prints do come back summer after summer and pink is a prominent colour in my wardrobe, Time will show. I’m styling it with a vest in one of the colours from the mix and of course white trainers. Don’t have any decent pink earrings so a bracelet will do.

Lookbook:

Kaftan: Primark

Vest: H! by Henry Holland

Trousers: Matalan

Trainers: Primark

I wanted to wear these white denim trousers, but at the same time I have felt like a squeezed up sausage, so the best way to disguise it is to wear something floaty over it. It covers your problem areas and adds a lot more interest to otherwise rather boring outfit.

Another relict dug out from my wardrobe. A fabulous angora cardigan in a rich fuchsia colour that actually suits my complexion now that I have some colour. I have paired it with my fav navy blue and some white accents including white trainers in which I live this summer.

E’s lookbook ‘Green metallic vest’

Lookbook:

Vest: Primark

Culottes: Primark

Flats: Primark

Vests are back in. The one I’m wearing has a ‘bonus feature’ which can double up as a ‘necklace. The flats have bows on them, so I may not be wearing any accessories, but there is a lot going on if you take into account that the vest has a metallic thread.
