Hey everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend.
Yesterday was my first Sunday off, as I don't work on this day now So I thought I would take full advantage and write a post dedicated to all the ladies as we had Women's Day last week and Mother's day coming soon.
I wanted to talk about fashion. I love fashion, I love looking to see what other ladies are wearing and if it would suit me or not.
I think the one piece I think every lady should have to wear in their wardrobe, to help make them feel good, is a nice tailored coat or jacket. You can't beat them.
I love my coat from BHS, from the Dorothy Perkins Department side of the store, in Kingston. It was a birthday gift.
This is my everyday Autumn, winter and spring coat. Even though today there were times I took it off, as I was too hot.
Well I had walked through 4 parks today.
t is very much like the picture above, and it just so nice to have such a tailored smart coat that is versatile. Can be worn with many looks and styles. Dress up or down. Mine keeps me snuggly and warm.
I also love my cardigans. I would always recommend a cardigan or jumper at least one that you can again wear it with jeans or tailored trousers, if it is a long jumper, like a tunic style then I love wearing those with skinny jeans or leggings. With a jacket or blazer style suite jacket and a shirt underneath.
The cardigan is the one I bought from Boohoo.com. It is so snuggly and will last me a few winters at least. Good price.
That is what I look for, how much does it keep me warm, can I wear the cardigan with the items I already have in my wardrobe? Does it wash well?
Answer: Yes to all, but don't put this type of cardigan with items such as black jeans as you can get fluff from the cardigan on them. Same with washing the Grey Coat pictured above from Dorothy Perkins, as the same thing happens.
So wash separately away from dark clothes and trousers.
That leads me to the other piece of clothing I love to wear and that is a pair of black tailored trousers.
The ones I have are from Debenhams. I have worn them so much that I will need a replacement pair.
Great to dress down or up. I always go for Bootleg style and fitted around the waist.
I am not afraid of buying second hand clothes either. Waste not want not. It is good to find some great low price pieces.
So what are the items you always have in your wardrobe? I would love to hear.
Many thanks for reading,
