Finally Spring has sprung! And with it comes gloriously louche updated leaving-the-house behaviour: leave your coat behind why not! Stepping out in just a jumper, crazy confident in the knowledge that the weather gods have got your back, conspiring all day long to keep you pleasantly warm…
It’s especially good when you have an eye-catching number to wear, like this beauty from Me & Em, which under a coat – when you’re working the jumper tuck to the max – would just get lost (on me anyway!). So I put on my latest favourite high-waisted jeans – obsessed with these Mango belt-tie ones – and tugged in tight to create the freestyle darted tucks.
Really excited to be trying out a few Me & Em pieces this months. I’ve been aware of the them for a while – those sell out Palazzo stripe trousers – but in all honestly thought I might just be too short to look ok in their styles. But not only have I been delighted with the quality and well thought out design of the pieces, the fit has been excellent on me (I went for size S in this jumper). It feels like they’ve really nailed strong looks with great silhouettes while still be extremely easy to wear. And yes, I like easy to wear.
Not much to the rest of the outfit really, except the gorgeous tan Mini Eight which I have fallen madly in love with (as per my last Sunday Edit). Bit of an Insta-trail discovery which led me to Australian based X Nihilo’s minimalist but beautiful designs for a price that hit just the right note! I love the versatility of this bag – a clever little buttoned interior strap that allows you to keep it in its bucket shape or fall into something more triangular. With handles and long strap, and a row of cardholder slots on the inside, and sizewize extremely accommodating!
Last of all, the trainers. By Swedish brand Eytys with whom I’ve also become quite obsessed. It started with a hunt for their amazing Chelsea boots (sold out everywhere, sob) but then I got into their trainer selection – these chunky white ones and their practically impossible to get hold of Angel trainers (a whole other blog on these probably due lol, as I have finally tracked down the perfect pair via Vestiaire and Depop – upshot is I now have a pair of cream cotton size 39s to sell, so contact me if interested!). Also just restocked on Net-a-Porter in suede and black leather.
