We're at that time of the year where it's tricky to get dressed in the morning....and today has been one of those days. It was a magical sunny day with barely a cloud in the sky and you could almost be fooled into thinking it is Summer...until you step out of the door and remember it's still freezing. However l don't know about you but l'm always keen to shrug off my Winter coats and start getting out some of my (creased) long forgotten pieces.
In the last week these are some of the outfits l've been wearing......
However most of us struggle with this odd time of the year so l'm here to offer some tips on how to make the most of your wardrobe and maybe even bring out your Summer dresses (see below on where to buy similar pieces).
I love dresses and would wear them all the time if l could and they are perfect year round. When it's still chilly keep it practical by pairing them with chunky boots or a chunky sweater.
For added chic and comfort pair with trainers...love this contrast of a floaty dress with something casual and rather plain.
For added warmth and to add interest to the dress secure a scarf around the waist with a belt.
Yes l do have an obsession with this coat but so should you! Wear with you skinny jeans and simple t-shirt but then for added warmth secure a scarf around the waist with a belt. and it also gives the coat a nice cinched in shape.
I've had a couple of these in my wardrobe for years and it never fails to make a simple outfit like the one below look smart and is suitable for most occasions such as lunch out or a date.
These are like a big comfort blanket and even look interesting when peeking out from underneath a shower coat. Perfect for layering and also look great with a dress as before.
Ok so l'm also obsessed with this item atm too but rightly so as they are a big trend. We've already seen how they keep a dress from looking too 'dressy' (!) and with shirts being a huge trend they look great as styled below, with skinny jeans....or even under dungarees.....
