This outfit is so wrong for today’s weather but I had to do TV early this morning, my youngest was up in the night and I had about ten minutes to throw this together. In the dark. On sleep deprivation.
Jacket is from Sass & Bide. I picked it up at last week’s sale. The print is part dalmatian, part Dreamtime and it’s feather-light to wear. A non-crush silk jacket is a must for the warm weather because it keeps you looking pulled together without over-heating.
When shopping for a summer blazer make sure you do the Crush Test before you buy it: literally take the very corner of the garment and scrunch it into a ball in your hands. Does it wrinkle? If yes, then that’s what you’re going to look like when you wear it.
The tea towel look is not pretty.
The pants are black, jodhpur-style, slouchy things from Lisa Ho. From maybe three winters ago?? They’ve not seen the light of day since then but I really like the masculine line of these pants and the exposed hardware (zips etc). Good to wear with something ultra feminine like the jacket.
My clutch is fluro pink. As fluorescent as pink can get. It’s several seasons old from PeepToe but check out the version they’ve done for this summer in a light, mushroom grey. Heaven.
On my feet are the original YSL Tribute shoes. But I’m kinda crushing on this new style – the Tribtoo. Love it in Suede & Patent Leather. Yum.
