‘What Should I Wear To…?’ Series: Breakfast On The Weekend

Happy Friday everyone! As I have said before on the blog, many of us find casual chic styling harder to achieve than getting dressed up for a ball. There is a good reason for this; with day-to-day dressing there are multiple choices and the goal posts change depending on the nature of the occasion.  Getting the perfect balance between comfort, under or overdressing and weather appropriateness can be a challenging task.

Sports-inspired clothing work great on a casual morning out. I have always loved a cricket jumper and find that it has an easy breezy style that lends itself perfectly to weekend excursions. I also like the white/cream base of these jumpers as they are a welcome change from the black jumpers in colder weather. Relaxed striped trousers are all the rage at the moment and it hard to go wrong with a classic red and navy combination.  A nice handbag and some clean sneakers are all you need to show up for breakfast looking like you have mastered the ‘just threw this on’ look.

Of all the meals in the day, breakfast is my favourite and I particularly enjoy a breakfast outing on the weekend.  If you have had a particularly great breakfast in London somewhere – please do let me know so I can add it to my list of places to try.  I hope you enjoy this look and thank you for visiting my blog.  Have a great weekend!

Cold Weather Eclectic: Tweed, Pinstripes, Animal Print and Oxfords

Happy Tuesday everyone! It is officially Autumn and it is time to start enjoying colder weather styling.  There are so many styles, fabrics and prints that come into their own this season and there is nothing more satisfying than wearing them all together.  I like to call this mix ‘cold weather eclectic’ and I am a dedicated fan!

Tweed check coats are ‘the coat trend’ this season and I have already seen more of them that I like then I can count on both hands.  This beautiful grey based tweed is a supermarket buy and Tu at Sainsburys have produced a winner once again. A pair of blue pinstripe trousers will last you all winter and at £12.99 –  these will not break the bank either.  I love the asymmetric frill hemline of this animal print blouse from Matalan and I can see myself wearing it often in the months to come.  I have paired this outfit with my beautiful oxblood oxfords that are achingly stylish and embody my style perfectly. A little crossbody purse and pearl earrings complete this eclectic look and I love how they all look together while being uber comfortable and easy to wear.

I hope you enjoy this look book and have a great week ahead.  As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog.  A big shout out to my photographer @camera.and.i  – I love the fall pictures in St. James Park.
