When I got the trousers I was determined to wear them a lot, as the skinny jeans are getting a bit boring now, not that I don’t love them. That would be my typical way to wear them – with something more voluminous on top. This blouse has served me well for a few years now and I still find it current. I wanted the accessories to be all brown and if I can’t find something I will make it as I did the earrings. Heeled boots to give me hight, as the trousers need it, and a vintage bucket bag to complete it all.
This is becoming repetitive but I like white trousers in spring. In summer it’s generally too hot to wear trousers but in spring, especially after months of rain, it’s like like fresh air not having to wear dark colours. I have worn the top recently, but this time with a statement necklace unknown origins.
It is fun to keep finding new ways to wear the same clothes. This time the culottes worn with a stripy multicoloured, very old vest, but this time with a jade, statement necklace to jazz it up. As there is a blue in the vest I have added a blue bag. And as always the white trainers.
This top used to be a mini dress. This top used to live in my closet as a dress and it has never been worn nor thrown away as it well-tailored. But there comes a time when even clothes hoarder like me needs to make a decision and mine was to turn it to a top. Polka dot is very much in at the moment, so I may as well take advantage of what I already have rather than buy more. A statement necklace to balance the white trousers, the perennial white trainers and silver wristlet for extra something.
Don’t really care if the velvet/velour is still in fashion. This blazer is perfect for this type of weather, warm, not hot. It has 3/4 length sleeves, so you don’t have to constantly roll them up and it’s fitted so you can wear it over thin garments. I’m wearing it with a broderie anglaise top which makes a nice texture contrast. As I have more time now I’m trying to wear more accessories, hence the earrings and a different shopper.
Can not pass a good bargain when I see one. I always buy things out of season. When I saw this top I had to get it. The colour is perfection and the fact that it is a semi-transparent makes it perfect for summer. My uniform: a good top, trousers, comfortable shoes, and some accessories.
I have to make more use out of these trousers. I got them in a tiny shop selling uninteresting clothes apart from these, they have really stood out. The fabric is not the easiest to keep wrinkle-free and the length of them requires wearing heals, but they do look lush especially with a decadent looking white blouse. the colour scheme is quite classic, with black accents.
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.
