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 38#

Recently a friend told me that I have a very ’70s vibe’ going on with my look lately… honestly, it surprised me, but looking now at today’s styled look (as while I can’t afford this crazy, wear-it-once wardrobe of my imagination), I can see what she means. The chunky heels, the socks, the colour palette… yes, I see it now.

If Only: Outfit Of The Day 37#

This could so easily step over the line into a going out outfit, especially with the heels and clutch bag, but I would still dare to wear it to the corner shop to buy milk for my cornflakes… is it just me who finds it impossible to say ‘milk for my cornflakes’ without feeling slightly uncomfortable, like it’s a badly veiled euphemism or some such thing? …I think I need to find some girl friends to dilute their foul-mouthed, dirty-minded influences. Anyone?

If Only: Outfit of the Day 24#

It started with a swimsuit… as a keen swimmer, I’m always looking for that perfect swim suit, and this one is my perfect swimsuit; cut out, florals, flattering cut.. it’s the whole package for me, if I’m honest. I’d wear it as a bodysuit as well as a swimsuit, and the best part is, it’s less than £100… teamed with aztec prints, ruby shades, a statement necklace and a few designer pieces, and I’m all set for a stroll through Hampstead Heath on a lazy sunday afternoon for a swim in the lakes… let’s not mention the required post-swim top and just focus on the swimsuit, shall we?

Today’s styled outfit is definitely bracing that age-old rule of ‘less is more’. Pastels, florals, peep-toe.. it may be more suited to spring, but what’s wrong with that?

Firstly, sorry for posting this one several hours later than usual – this morning’s wifi would not co-operate, unfortunately. It’s been an up and down day, a day where layering is necessary because sunburn is just as likely as drenchings. Apparently it’s also a day of silky, skin-kissing fabrics, big hats and big heels with big attitude.

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.
