After three (yep – three…count ’em!), days of sunshine last week, I think it’s high time we go full tilt into the spring dressing thing for a new working week.
For me that means breaking out the St Tropez Everyday now and again, increasing ankles out opportunities and maybe even test the waters when it comes to a bit of bare leg action.
Now don’t go getting all concerned about the very real chance of my getting frostbite. I’m a grown up who sometimes chooses to face a little cold leg discomfort for the sake of some feel good dressing…
Happy March 1st! It’s way past that time when we’re officially allowed to get excited about spring and new wardrobe opportunities.
But this year I’m thinking a bit more along practical lines and am prepping for the mixed bag of weather that is surely still ahead.
Practical? Odd – must be an age thing.
The reality of spring in the UK is that whilst we might see guest appearances from the sun now and again, we’re equally likely to still see some snow. Or at least a few frosty, sub zero mornings in the foreseeable future…
Dear Olivia Palermo, welcome back to The Online Stylist – it’s been a while. I’ve missed you!
Whilst I’m a confirmed no-fuss, COS wearing, monochrome loving minimalist most of the time, it doesn’t mean to say I don’t regularly check up on Ms Palermo via the magic of Pinterest.
Admittedly, most of what Olivia wears only looks so darn good because she is wearing it. She of the slender frame, glossy locks and ability to look good in a bin bag tied with string. I once tried playing Dress Like Olivia and look how that turned out… *insert shame faced emoji here*
I love all the excuses that Christmas brings don’t you? There’s the one about champagne with breakfast, the automatic license to cover everything in twinkle and of course the infamous cheese
claus clause. Cheese with everything.
And to add to the “Because it’s Christmas!” list is of course the need to dress up. Note this excuse is not an excuse, it’s a need.
As in I NEED to wear sequins and cashmere, I NEED to have glitter on my shoes in December and I also NEED to plan an outfit for Christmas Day. Even though we have no intention of stepping outside the house for 24 hours and it’ll just be the three of us plus dog. Still NEED an outfit!
It’s here – the most wonderful time of the year – December!
I’m feeling decidedly Christmassy after a wonderful day at Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons with The White Company earlier this week (more on that later!), so I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite Holiday Season Inspiration pics and props.
I need no further encouragement to embrace the festive season. The temperature has dropped, the twinkle is full flow and I plan on making the most of the season of joy and cheer.
