ALC Pre-Fall 2015/16

Totally fabulous looks, and of course I will be trying to copy this from the high street. It’s early days but it seems to me that Zara will have this all sewn up!

My New Favourite

0

I have been a ‘skinny jean girl’ for at least the last decade, before that it was bootcut jeans. I can hardly remember before that! I do remember a few trips to Kensington Market to buy second hand levi’s which were THE thing to wear in the early 90’s. Flared shapes have been having a comeback for a couple of seasons but for some reason I haven’t fancied them. It’s the ankle swingers that have caught my eye. They are wide around the ankle but not exactly flared and cropped. Here are what I’m talking about.

Isn’t it just a dress?

I love a new fashion-ism, and the micro-trend we are seeing at the moment is the ‘maxi-top’.

Here are a few to look at….

This one from Zara has a classic shirt front. £29.99.

This open-work front top from Free People says holiday to me. It also is available in black and amber. £128.

This one is from River Island £26.

I’m struggling to see myself adopting this trend, although I can see it being a great beach cover up option. I often have to eat my words…..watch this space.

 

Denim

It’s definitely a new season, the weather has warmed up, the sun is out. Ditch the chunky knit its time for a spring update. One of the ways is to wear more denim. It was a massive look on the catwalks for spring/summer 15.

When you document what you are wearing everyday you notice how little of your wardrobe you actually wear. I have spotted that I wear jeans a lot. I often go shopping for the trends that I have seen and try them on, they fit ok and hit the brief I then stick them in the wardrobe. I think I will wear them but the truth is I am just a casual style girl who would like to look smarter but its not my natural state.

Well today I am wearing an A-Line midi skirt, its been in my wardrobe since autumn.

It was from Marks and Spencer and is thick wool and has a lining which makes it perfect for cold days like today.

I am wearing it with this Uniqlo jumper, it dresses it back down to casual, the Swarovski necklace just adds a tiny sparkle.

These Paul Smith shoe boots were bought back in 2011! I am wearing Topshop lace trimmed socks.

I am off out to meet with a friend who has just bought a bar/restaurant, I hope my legs won’t be too cold!

My blog posts are always about fashion trends and shopping or styling tips, however I know that most bloggers write about what they are wearing and I thought it might be fun to document what I wear in a month. Today is definitely a dress down day, I started the day with a coffee morning with my lovely school mums. The rest of the day I am working in the office and catching up on a few chores.

I am wearing Uniqlo jeans, super soft and fabulously stretchy. £34.90.

These Penelope Chilvers boots were bought from Bernard Boutique Esher back in 2012 I think. They are amazing soft comfortable leather, I love the stripe detail.

This T-shirt was my cheeky Fenwick spend on Wednesday on my way to a meeting. From Leon and Harper around £69. I love the feather ‘necklace’ detailing. I have added some layering necklaces too, an evil eye necklace also from Fenwick and a gold and crystal long necklace that was a gift from the old man. The infinity scarf was a Benetton buy around 4 years ago.

The blanket style cardigan was from Monsoon last year. They have something similar this season, click here.

If you buy one thing as the phrase goes, then it should be wide legged trousers this season. You will see them appearing everywhere. Yesterday I was ‘researching’ on Oxford Street and Regent Street and I saw lots of lovely wide legged Palazzo style trousers. Floral ones, cropped versions, you name it they are definitely the leg shape of the season.

These images are the inspiration behind the high street offerings, above Tommy Hilfiger, House of Holland and Tom Ford. Below, Viktor and Rolf.

The following are from Zara, I almost bought the floral pair for myself, but they were so long I knew I would have to have them altered. I am still considering it though!
