Petit Bateau stripe top, girl. by Band of Outsiders skirt, Karen Walker trench coat, Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Alexander Wang devere bag
This outfit isn’t anything that you haven’t seen before, a stripe and skirt combo and my beloved kitty flats. I’m the type of person that will thrash something to death if I really love it, only deciding to part with it when it has well and truly seen better days. In the past, I’m pretty sure I have worn shoes until they have holes in the soles, and even then, I’ll try and wear them a bit longer – now, I’d probably take them to the cobbler to get resoled in the hopes of breathing new life into them.
It’s been a rather gloomy weekend, providing the perfect backdrop to go to the movies, and spend some time relaxing at home (although when don’t I do this?!). I’ve been pretty rugged up in tights and a coat when leaving the house. Considering how lacking my winter wardrobe is, I’m not quite sure how I survived winter this year, and am glad that summer is nearly upon us. It’s inspired me to do a bit of forward planning, so I can take advantage of the NH sales come Christmas-time. Top of my list? Plain, semi fitted long sleeved tops in soft fabrics and knit jumpers in colours like navy, black, burgundy and cream. Groundbreaking? Not exactly, but I can’t help but crave a bit of simplicity.
