The garden looks a bit different than this today – we woke up to snow yesterday and even more this morning! We managed to make a very small snowman but he’s already looking a bit worse for wear…his nose fell of within minutes! I expect that by tomorrow everywhere will just be a sludgy mess.
Today’s outfit is a combination of a couple of new sale purchases and an eBay bargain. I’m sure you know how much I love the Fabienne Chapot label…I’m actually wearing two pieces from the brand today. I’ve had the hat a while now and have previously worn it with a grey coat and pink trousers. (I also have the hat in blue and green). I bought this fabulous Fabienne Chapot alien print shirt on eBay – it was a tense auction but I got the winning bid in with only seconds left on the auction! At only £13.50 I was overjoyed, especially because I thought I’d been outbid.
It’s even better quality than I expected; I have a few other Fabienne Chapot tops but this is the nicest fabric of them all. It’s so soft but quite weighty for a shirt, which means it hands really well. The charming neck tie and deep cuffs are really lovely details. After taking these photos I was on a video call to my dad and he said he really liked it…that’s praise indeed!
I wasn’t initially intending to wear the shirt with these velvet trousers, but they were on the bed so I’d thought I try them; I bought them with the intention of wearing them as loungewear but they’re thicker than I anticipated so I could wear them out. The cropped length of the trousers works well with these square toe ankle boots for a retro feel. They’re from the vegan range at Marks & Spencer and I’m so pleased with them. I couldn’t help adding them to my basket when I was shopping for my mother-in-law’s presents. For going out/going to work I could add either my velvet or satin black jacket to complete the outfit.
