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.The tee is wonderully versatile and has just the right amount of slouch plus upper arm coverage. The only thing is it’s a bit too long for me to wear outside (but I’ve solved that issue with a new batch from the Gap Petite range). Zara softly tailored pants, Rag & Bone leather brogues. Just to prove once and for all what I long suspected, I simply cannot wear Birks in a normal way. I love black sandals but have found none so far that could be a back up to my faithful pair here – not that I’m *actively* looking you understand. My kids are wildly happy with their Birks so 2 out 3 is pretty good 🙂My Boy took these on my phone: H&M knitted navy blazer and H&M Kids canvas plimsolls. This blazer was such a great find from 2 years ago also here – another H&M treasure! I really wanted to wear my jackets more preferably with pants like this in a smart casual way. This might be a contender for my travel outfit in the Summer.A gratuitous close up of the Kelly in black box. I’ve always loved wearing black and navy together; all black is too severe the older I get whereas all navy is too officey and impossible to match separates but one of each feels right to me.
Thanks for reading!
