Not raining for once so let’s make the most of it and wear the white coat I got last year. I have also got this navy blue cardigan from a charity shop. I love the texture on it, it looks like fish scales. The state of the cardigan was quite appalling, but from experience, I knew that if I trim all of the ‘scales’ slightly, which took about a day while watching some TV, the cardigan will look brand new. I wanted it to be all navy blue and white and comfortable and warm, hence the perennial polo-neck, denim and trainers.

So I have dug up that old relic coat of mine that is very warm (wool+cashmere) slightly old fashioned cut but it’s way too good to get rid off and tried to keep everything in the same tone. The top is from Zara and looks very, Chanel-like plus grey trousers plus brogues, all in my books very relaxed and modern.

I wanted to wear black trousers with white trainers, so to tie up the whole outfit I have replicated the same colours on the top with a black hooded jumper and a white polo-neck. I have also added a vintage brooch and a black shopper.

Trainers: Primark

Nothing beats a good trainer when you need to do errands all-day. Going with the theme- a sporty top and a polo-neck because it is still cold and a leather jacket because it’s windy and a big shopper to fit everything in. Sorted.

Coat: Primark

Top: Adidas

Polo-neck: Primark

Trousers: Zara

Boots: Primark

Bag unknown

Have you ever build a whole outfit around a bag just because you can’t be asked to move your stuff to another one, I just did. The bag is red so I needed another red thing and there it is an old favourite, an Adidas top with a very unusual cut that is fitted and flattering. White polo-neck to match the stipes and army green bottom. Oatmeal coat to make it feel lighter.

It is balmy warm for this time of the year so I’m starting to wear spring clothes in winter. The colour scheme is based on the colours of the blouse I had for years. Pink and mint together look very fresh.

Bag: DKNY

I remember last spring watching winter fashion shows and drooling over the wide leg, cuffed trousers. And what I have done was to put them on my wanted list and every time I have visited a charity shop I looked for them. As charity shops go, nothing comes specifically in your size or fits perfectly. Same with this pair, I had to do some alterations for them to fit, but the fabric is great and they flow beautifully. For them not to look very office-like, I’m wearing them with a fun jumper and very nouveau riche jacket.

Jumper: Primark

Denim: H&M

Boots: Primark

Of course, when you buy something you intend to wear it a lot, but I have to say I did not think this grey jacket that I’m wearing will be worn all through the winter but as the temperature remain mild I reach for it more. The length is good for my figure and the colour is neutral. This time I’m wearing it with a jumper I have bought in the kid’s section because I have wanted it to stop in my waist and new but bought in the sale flared jeans. This is called half-flare and this might be the style to go for as they seem very wearable to me. And to match a pale grey scarf and grey, heeled boots.

Another look with the red coat. Despite being a bright colour, the coat seems to be very versatile. This time paired with a dress that I had for ages, the red in the flowers goes with the red coat and the rest of the accessories is brown. I have even dug out a necklace, in the shape of an elephant, that I used to wear when I was a teenager and that was a long time ago.

Wearing the same coat again and again- need to get a good cost per wear. But honestly, the coat goes with most things in my wardrobe. Another thing that I have noticed is that I’m attracted to a particular shade of red. Two separate purchases made years apart but the red is almost identical what makes putting outfits much easier.
