Weekly Wardrobe #7
A week of denim, *the* waistcoat of the season AND a little additional review of my autumn purchases so far...
You know the deal with Monday by now. I started the week with a day of laptop-admin and a trip to the pool to see the little man have a swimming lesson which he flat-out refused to leave. Honestly this was just pulled on - there is NOTHING special to see here. But I do think it’s a good lesson in how a more put-together shoe can pull a whole outfit together and make it feel more ‘done’. Imagine this with a trainer - far more casual, or with a Birkenstock it would have felt a really relaxed. I think these flats* are a really good addition to my wardrobe and an indicator of how I’d like my style to feel more elevated than it’s been previously. And if you’re ever intrigued by my squash I buy it in bulk here* and am NEVER without it.
I’m giving free subscribers a little more of a preview this time round because you only ever get to see my Monday, which 95% of the time is my most-chilled outfit as I tend to head to London later on in the week. So here’s a London outfit! I had two appointments with a big wedge of laptop time at Mortimer House Kitchen in-between (it’s a good place to sit at the bar with a laptop if you actually want to get yourself a proper tasty lunch - thank you to the person who suggested the whipped ricotta - it was delicious!).
Last week I wore two-jacket situation to London and spent the whole day carrying one around with me, so this time I thought I’d do a thin layer with my massive knit over the top which saved me from lugging around a coat on the tube. Here’s the formula to give a go. Skin-tight t-shirt + fluffy oversized knit + straight leg jeans and belt + pointed boots + suede bag. And I know I’ve said it before but these boots are really quite astounding. They look phenomenally good, but I walked… let me check… 13,450 steps on Tuesday and NOT ONE RUB. Not a blister. Not one bit of redness or soreness. Incredible.
