Kelly Sport

RASPBERRYANDPURPLE3The Kelly Sport is a variation on the sellier construction that’s taller with no flap also here. Mine is the medium size in black box leather with goldtone hardware. There is a smaller size that looks cute worn cross body. Introuducing the replacement Crombie coat style, by Max Mara in a dark moleskin grey colour. Sorry for the lack of morning light!

Shawl Weather

FLECKSCORDSI was so looking forward to bringing out the Hermès cashmere/silk shawls. This was my first of two from last year and they certainly worked very well for me. My neck always get cold so scarves and shawls are essential. It’s also a way to indulge in ‘everyday luxury’. Continue reading

Black and Blush

BOYISHKAs the temperature continues to drop slowly but surely, my colour palette darkens first with accessories then the clothes. And out comes the delicate blush cashmere by Eric Bompard also here to retain some lightness.

BOYISHK3I feel very confident and comfortable in this outfit and variations of. My Kelly is the perfect companion for the whole day! Um, sorry about the bad feet positioning! Continue reading


WINDBLOWN5In comfy holiday mode of jeans, shirt and long cardi with double scarf to keep warm. The check shirt is Gap Boy in a traditional navy and bottle green. Cardi by Mango, Banana Republic orange scarf, Hermès silk scarf, vintage Gucci belt, Sam Edelman ankle boots and Céline bag.WINDBLOWN3Topped off with the Cos coat. Besides the casual outwear from the Men’s and Kid’s department, this is the only coat I’ve ever bought new from the shops, all my other ones are at least pre-owned or very vintage. I’ve tried the coats from the High Street shops every season and every season I can never do justice to them! Except this one by Cos which not much can beat for quality and cut at this price point.

Cocoon Coat

COCOONI’m glad this cocoon coat by Cos has stood the test of time from here and here. I love coats so much and think they set the tone for every Autumn/Winter season. The classics will always be worthwhile investments for pulling on without having to think. It’s also nice to see if there are newer shapes, textures and colours around that may also last.

Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday

I love green and was immediately taken by this Cos dress in the sales last year. It’s pure cotton, unlined, machine washable and amazingly well made. And it has sleeves! The style is retro, like a ‘sack’ dress from the 50’s. The zip pockets add a little modernity. I liked how it looked with my Prada platform wedges – I usually only wear them away on holiday.GREENSTRAW These wedges are old and made with white leather and woven straw. Yes, the dress is really, really green 🙂 Continue reading

Easy Blues and White

BLUEANDWHITE This is an outfit I would not have been able to put together if we’re having a normal Spring. I would have just thrown on a cardigan and trench if wet but because it’s very cold still, I had to think about the layers. A jumper and cardi combination would be slightly too warm and bulky so it has to be a slouchy tee and a jacket – at last! I’ve wanted to wear my jackets much more but since most of them are tailored, they tend to look too formal and the biker/moto jackets don’t really suit either. Continue reading
