So speaking of basic wardrobe pieces recently, here is one of mine – a lightweight beige trench coat which I picked up from Queen’s Wardrobe, simple with a twist, in the detailing on the shoulders. For some reason, I spent a long time thinking that a trench coat was just one of those classics that I don’t need, but recently, I’ve found that it’s often what I throw on just as I’m about to leave the house. You never know what the weather is going to do in Wellington so it always pays to play it safe.
Generally, I’ve found that lately I’m just keeping it simple and fuss-free, partly due to the warmer weather, it always inspires a less structured approach to getting ready. An almost too simple top, and a floaty skirt being quite possibly the easiest things to reach for considering my fondness for separates. This skirt, while familiar, is actually the result of a swap with a friend, to try it out in a slightly different style. Not something that I do often, but it sure is a fun way to give your wardrobe a momentary update!
