If Only: Outfit of the Day 22#

Give me drama today – in the best possible way – in my wardrobe. So often, I’ve pined over the beautiful gowns that hit the runways and red carpets, but of course, when would I wear them? Well sometimes, I think I’d just head straight out on my daily errands in a big, puffy ball-skirt or a dressed down gown. Why not? It’d be such a waste, otherwise. This Alberta Ferretti maxi skirt is the perfect example of wearable drama – being a skirt, it can be teamed with something casual; a crop top, a tucked-in slogan t-shirt, a boyfriend-fit jumper or a leather jacket. It hangs just high enough off the ground not to be ruined by the grime of the city streets.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 2#

It’s now pretty much mid-August, aka, the dying days of an English summer, and I think it’s fair to say that the summer is well and truly in its deathbed. Luckily, we English have long mastered the art of the multi-season outfit, for those last few glimmers of sunshine that summer manages to splutter out, before succumbing to another sweeping, howling, pelting thunderstorm. I think England is one of the few places where it is acceptable for non-celebrities to venture outside in both knitwear and sunglasses. It’s called preparation!12-Aug
