I hope your week has got off to a good start…well, as good as can be expected under the circumstances! I have a few days at home now and the weather is lovely. I’ll be out in the garden making the most of it! My work pattern seems to be changing frequently, which is to be expected really. Freelancing is unpredictable at the best of times!
I was planning a different outfit for today’s post but I just couldn’t put it together how I’d imagined it. Not being able to find the trousers I wanted to wear was the main obstacle. Instead, I’ve paired Spring green and navy for a comfortable but smart look. I bought this Matthew Williamson jacket for a snip years ago, but this is only its second appearance on the blog. (I previously teamed it with navy too).
After wearing my two pairs of faded skinny jeans on rotation whilst at home, switching to a dark denim feels like dressing up…I bet I’m not the only one who feels like that too! These jeans were a bargain – only £15 from TKMaxx a few years ago. I liked them so much I bought two pairs. They have a good amount of stretch so they’re really comfortable but they keep their shape. The dark wash pairs really well with this navy jumper by Scotch & Soda which I bought from the-Bias-Cut.com. It was an absolute bargain at only £29 (I also bought it in red). It’s still on sale in sizes small and large – I’m wearing a medium and it’s a generous fit.
I love the striped cuffs and the ‘Dans la nuit’ tab. It also comes with the necklace I’m wearing which I hadn’t realised when I ordered it…that was a nice surprise! It feels so lovely to wear – almost like not wearing anything at all, that’s how comfortable it is. I’m quite sensitive to labels and seams on clothing lately so I’m becoming rather picky about quality. Labels such as Scotch & Soda, Pom Amsterdam and Fabienne Chapot never disappoint.
SHOP THE LOOK
The navy sock boots give the illusion of longer legs…and they’re super comfortable, despite the heel height. The velvet is soft but still has some support, unlike some stretchy satin sock boots.
