If Only: Outfit of the Day 42#

Like the rest of us, I can’t enough of the poncho, cape and ‘bigger is better’ trend that has taken the season by storm, and I’m suddenly finding myself spoilt for choice in every high street store as everyone clamours to make their mark on the trend, but personally, one of my newly discovered trend (once again, all thanks to my flatmate), is this bargain Zara scarf for just £26 (with a whole penny to spare!) Just look at it! Perfect for suddenly chills or spontaneous sunny picnics on these awkward in-between-season days when we just don’t quite know what will happen either way. I’m in love…

If Only: Outfit of the Day 30#

My own take on traditional English style today, a perfect autumnal look for chilly English mornings… but not quite chilly enough to warrant tights. I have a (fairly meagre) summer tan to show off for a few more weeks yet, thank you very much. Simplicity, minimal accessories, berry tones… yes, I’m definitely happy with this one.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 15#

I’ve spent the last two days day and a half at Notting Hill Carnival, and on Saturday, it was lovely, sunny, generally warm but for a few gusts of a chilly breeze. As expected, it was cloud, chaotic, the air thick with the smoke of a thousand BBQs as everyone whose homes lined the carnival route made the most of the event, selling everything from jerk chicken to curry to sweet treats to raise a few pounds for themselves. I even saw people advertising their bathroom for public use – for a small fee. Today, however, the heavens opened, and the plastic, neon disposible rain macs that for some reason become acceptable the moment a person either a) travels to a rainy country, entering stereotypical tourist territory, or b) a person attend a festival/carnival. Personally, I hate them, and so I couldn’t help but focus today’s ‘if only’ outfit around the chicest plastic mac that I could find, as my own classic beige trench only served me well for about an hour.

Ah, England, what is it with you and rainy bank holidays?
