Layering for 1st days of Spring Sunshine...


For meeting a client, for a shopping session the other day, I was pretty pleased with this concoction.It was a beautiful sunny day, as you can see from the pics, but with a distinct nip in the air. I knew I'd be in and out of shops and would need layers and relative comfort as well as  a bit of a 'look' going on. I also had to factor in that after my client I'd be racing to get my children from school.( Read-comfort!- low heels)
 I put my sheepskin gilet under my 'Maje' a line coat and stepped into my 'Maje' ankle boots (the heel is a really good height for all day -see my earlier post- maybe even my first one!)Topshop Baxter skinnies, trusty hat and I was ready to go. I'm outside my front door, which I painted for the Royal Wedding last year- I'm sticking with it now for the Jubilee...






Underneath I'm wearing  my sparkly Zara knit over a silk blouse I made. It's an easy look but just dressed up enough once I've taken off the coat.



And here I am without the fur gilet under the coat.It's all about the hat really...isnt it? If I have one piece of advice to give , it's 'get a hat'.I don't know what it is about the hat but whenever I'm wearing it I tend to get great service in shops and people are immensely polite!  You should see Garance Dore's post http://www.garancedore.fr/en/2011/10/11/le-chapeau/  I must say -My hat doesn't have quite as an astonishing effect as Garance's but if you want to get noticed - get a HAT!




Here  I  go!


I'm off!
