If Only: Outfit of the Day 18#

Generally, I’m a bit of a fashion traditionalist; I don’t tend to experiment too wildly, I know what I like, I know what I can wear, and what I can’t, and I stick to that. However, sometimes, I’m willing to piece together things that will probably clash; florals and stripes, brights and monochromes, or in this case, silk and silk, green diamonds with blue Tudor-rose-esque motifs. A belt would be required to stop the silk-on-silk slip-and-slide. An extra button undone would reveal a hint of black lace. A few simple items of jewellery would turn the outfit from mismatched pyjama to daytime glamour, completed with rolled up sleeves and folded trouser legs, and a pair of nude heels. I love this trend – the best trends are always the cosiest, after all!

If Only: Outfit of the day 13#

The trend of layering a lace trimmed slip under a baggy fit jumper-dress has spread like wildfire since last year, and while I love the lace-and-knit, wool-and-silk look, I’ve been trying to think about how to do things just that little bit differently, and looking to those in the street who already do. I’ll always have room in my wardrobe for silk or lace kimonos, but it’s reached a point of being just that little bit too chilly to wear them alone. I’m looking for the perfect knit cardigan collection to layer over a growing kimono collection; some tacking or pinning of the customary sleeves of kimonos will be required here. A fur gilet would also look great; or layered over the cardigan and kimono. It’s sunny today, so I’ve opted for simple flats, but if the weather turned gloomy, I would switch for baggy, thick knit socks and a great pair of lace up boots.
