British summer

Typical British summer! One day I'm off to work in a sleeveless shift dress and the next it's a woolly jacket to keep warm on even the briefest of commutes.  To be fair I don't often have occasion to wear a jacket as home and work are only a minute apart. Today however, the wind was blowing from the North making it chilly enough for me to root about in my wardrobe for the right jacket. The brand of this little number is Florence and Fred, but I wonder if you'd have guessed that such a chic style could be found in your local Tesco. A cream jacket or coat can look very smart as long as it's kept immaculately clean, so it's worth weighing up the dry cleaning bills when you're thinking about buying. What I saved by making my purchase in a charity shop can at least go towards the next few visits to the dry cleaners.  

The silky harem pants were an impulse buy quite a few years ago and this is the first time I've worn them. I've found them quite difficult to pair up with anything, but the peplum top seemed like it was worth a try. I do love the shape and colour of the top so I think that really swayed the decision. The true test will be if I can find another top to bring them out again, then I'll know they're for keeps. And the shoes have been another challenge to get the right partnership for. I think they work really well with the trousers considering my default setting would be to pop on a pair of brogues, of which I have one or two...

Jacket: Tesco. Top: H&M. Vest top: Primark. Harem pants: TK Maxx. Shoes: TK Maxx. Clutch bag: charity shop. Necklaces: charity shop. Opaque ring: New Look. Flower ring: Dorothy Perkins.



  1. I know what you mean Anna....and it's even more changeable up here.
    You have got this covered though...looking fabulous!
    I love your flats...and your cuffed trousers, hard to pull off but you have done it. (A fantastic figure helps there!)
    I'm also glad to see that pretty little necklace again.

    1. Great to hear from you again Samantha. Yes, the trousers are a bit of a challenge and will have another go with them soon as I think I could do better. Thanks for the encouragement and lovely feedback xxx
