I’m so keen to wear all the summery pieces I’m collecting, but it’s still too damn cold! This weekend I paired this ultra cute floaty pastel pink shirt dress from Fabric Boutique with a soft grey jumper, and then a black coat to balance out the black tights on my legs and boots on my feet. The very pale grey jumper is such a good way of toning down pastels a little and keeping warm at the same time, definitely one of my most versatile purchases from this winter which will hopefully take me through until it is actually warm enough to not wear a jumper.
One item of clothing I’ve been on the lookout for recently is a good pair of leather (faux or otherwise) trousers. I already have one fab pair from Missguided which have a really cool crocodile-skin effect, but I wanted something plainer to add to my collection and this pair from AX Paris are perfect! They’re not matte but aren’t too shiny, and also aren’t movement restricting-ly tight. The also have some nice detail on the knee, a non-leather strip on the inner leg and are faux leather so are vegi and vegan friendly. I think I will be getting a lot of wear out of them this winter, but here I paired them with another new piece from Choies – this very Alexander Wang-esque (I think so anyway!) textured jumper. I rolled the bottom cuff under here as the length sat awkwardly with the trousers, but I like that this jumper actually fits me rather than being cropped or oversized like most of my others. My adorable Choies Marc By Marc Jacobs-esque flats made an appearance too as it was a dry day.
I also wore my AMAZING new Primark coat which I’ve lived in since I finally got my hands on it after seeing it online months ago. It’s so fab I’m almost tempted to go back and buy another in case it bobbles easily… hm. At £32 it is a steal compared to pretty much every other high street alternative; all hail Primark!
