If Only: Outfit of the Day 45#

While this look started with the skirt, it’s fair to say that it really ended up revolving around the beautiful amethyst necklace. I’m such a sucker for gemstone jewellery, in all honesty… apparently to the extent that I will happily colour match an entire outfit to suit.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 33#

Maybe it’s because it’s September, maybe because it’s school season, and I suddenly find myself once again wondering whether I am invisible to anyone under the age of sixteen as children leave school on their scooters, ramming the front wheel into my ankle, running their bikes over my toes, headbutting me in the thigh, their screeches of laughter and shouts to each other ringing through my ears, disturbing what was just a week ago a very peaceful route through the quiet residential streets of my neighbourhood. Maybe it’s the first crisp, falling leaves of autumn, but there is definitely an element of back-to-school chic intertwined with an autumnal colour scheme for today’s look. Slightly-clashing patterns, block colours, lashings of accessories and a hit of grown up lace lingerie peaking through a shirt… yes.. I like this one very much.

New York Fashion Week: Day 7#

It’s the final day of NY fashion week! Tomorrow, the big-eyed gaze of the fashion-mad population will turn their attention to London, but as for NYC.. things definitely ended on a high! Though I have to end on a weirdly geeky note.. as much as I love Marc Jacobs’ new collection, there is just something about his designs that reminds me of this… I blame the recent London publicity stunts regarding the new series last month.

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?

If Only: Outfit of the Day 7#

Today is a day of meetings, and so while I am running around in the standard black cigarette trousers and a cream silk, collarless shirt with black pumps (hopefully I can find someone to take a real outfit shot of that for me later), that I brought with me to London, I can’t help but look through the beautiful suits on offer online, waiting to be added to my wardrobe.

I especially love this deep emerald green suit from ASOS.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 6#

Things are still chilly and unpredictable here. I never know whether it’s going to rain, whether or not it’s safe to venture outdoors without a coat, or a jumper, whether to pack an umbrella or sunglasses – or both. However, rain or no rain, chilly winds or no chilly winds, I’m determined to make the most of my summer clothes… and that includes the make believe outfits. This one started with an ASOS find – this beautiful reclaimed vintage dress.
