London winter is going easy on us again, hence I jumped at the chance to wear out my new shoes toute suite. Further confirming what an excellent new style they are to have hit the highstreet…
Gloving the feet most stylishly but a mere, and very walkable, 2 inches off the ground. There’s lots of versions going round at the moment – COS and Zara sold out, but others at Topshop, Office, H&M (these currently in my basket, ahem) and Uterque. Definitely thinking about getting a second pair as I think I’m going to be wearing these a lot! Other new on is the close-fitting straight leg mom jeans (BDG at Urban Outfitters). This style in black is high-waisted and a little tighter than the other styles in the same size, so be warned, I could have easily gone up a size. Took the hems off with scissors and frayed a bit.
The rest is all 2015 stock. This suede fringe jacket (still available in a Medium) is a bit of an all round winner – classic piece, just like a good black leather one (I have this one) and the jumper is Marks & Sparks December fare. And the bag, the ever elusive saddle bag by French brand Sezane – the black suede is currently available. But they do restock the colours, just sign up to their app and you’ll be notified.
Things are not too manic at the moment – basically just craving sun bigtime thanks to all those Insta-people who have secured long-haul travel to somewhere sandy involving Pantone-favoured-colours-of-year sunsets, hammocks and cocktails, ugh – but there’s the slow build up to LFW bubbling away, so mentally preparing myself…
In other news, keep an eye out for the forthcoming La Redoubte x Carven collab – some really nice piceces…
The Finery has got some awesome luxe pointy platform sneakers in right now….
How amazing is the new Coach SS16 saddle bag? Argh, want!
And I’ve just ordered these, very good price!
