I brought out an old Jaeger dress in navy jersey also here, and in the morning sunshine, there was still a bite to the wind so had to make sure my feet were warm. The dress is almost 4 years old but because it’s a classic shape, I know it will update with my brogues and pointy toe flats, though not sure about the ankle boots – will have to try! Windy enough to shake my camera – sorry! Red cotton cardigan is Zara Girls, vintage Céline necklace and belt, Rag & Bone brogues and Hermès Kelly 28 in black box leather.
Firstly, if you are of or in a Theravadin country, may I wish you a very Happy Buddhist New Year (yesterday)! We’re a multifaith family and this is the 3rd ‘New Year’ to be celebrated so far …. one more to go before the end of 2014 :-) For us it’s pretty low key involving a special meal offered to our ancestors followed by prayers for health and happiness.
I feel lady like and comfortable in this look today :-) An old Jaeger skirt (I have the same in navy) also here and here with an even older, vintage M&S short sleeve lambswool jumper from the 90′s. Normally I never buy lambswool but as it’s by M&S, I was completely confident and I was right over 20 years later! Continue reading →
This is a favourite silhouette – a much loved skirt and so versatile – really love wearing it with the cable jumper. I only managed to get the right lower waist/upper hip length by buying from the kids’ department (Gap).I do feel the cold so this is just right without a coat – just slip on the shoes, pick up the bag and go!

I’m struggling with the transition to Spring – can you tell? It was still grey and wet most days last week where I am but undeniably light and I’m just thrown off as always at the beginning. I need to dress up and reset the balance. In the meantime, I’m really enjoying my old Burberry coat in mostly wool, with a detachable hood and big patch pockets. It can withstand a shower but not a downpour and has to be nicely hung up to dry off afterwards indoors otherwise it will crease horribly. Here originally and here.
Mixing and matching like a maniac! I didn’t think to use the brogues with my classic skirts last year, kept them for trousers and jeans. Usually I go straight into leather flats or slipper mode but it feels very comfortable and more robust to wear the brogues like this. We continue to have awful internet issues and so apologies for not responding to comments and visiting your blogs – I really miss catching up and will do so as soon as possible. Continue reading →
I’m finding it so very hard to shake off the heaviness of Winter when all I want to do is skip for Spring. To cheer myself up I took out some favourite blue pieces: the graphic pencil skirt by H&M also here, Gap rayon tee, vintage necklace, Hermès vintage crocodile cuff and Kelly 28cm in black box.

After this outfit I’m giving myself a break from the bf jeans. Not that we’ve fallen out or anything like that. We both need the break from each other, you know the saying ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’, also it’s too easy an option and I really must push ahead in using *everything* else in my closet :-) Gap 1969 faded blue, Gap rayon tee, Zara Boy’s field jacket (this was such a lucky and useful find from a couple of years ago and it’s still perfect – not sure I’ll be able to pass it down), Hermès gavroche, vintage Next belt, Chanel single flap in washed caviar leather, Sam Edelman stone suede Petty booties.
