Sleeveless Trench / Striped Trousers - Lunch on Brompton Road

Is anyone else feeling as though their wardrobe is thoroughly unprepared for Spring? I am. My summery dresses, skirts and sleeveless tops are still folded stuffed in perspex boxes in the spare room. A few weeks ago, here in the UK we had a good few days of what is by our standards, tropical heat, and now we seem to have settled into a sunny-but-chilly weather situation, and I can deal with that, for now. Every time a new season comes around I seem to entirely forget how to dress for it. I was only just getting into the layering swing, now all the clothes are coming off.

 This was a last minute 'oh my god I have no spring clothes, all I have are jumpers and leather trousers' outfit that I put together the morning before I headed to Knightsbridge for lunch with Becca and Rupert the pug. This sleeveless trench has quickly become one of my new favourite pieces. It's so well-made and heavy, but not in a way that'd make it too warm. It's so easy to throw over a multitude of dull outfits.  I was quite pleased with this outfit in the end, I feel I look a bit like a spy or a detective. Or both. A spytective. I'm not really sure of any discernible differences between a spy and a detective in terms of job responsibilities, although I imagine a spy is more tough to get a hold of. 

(Oh, and these beloved shoes of mine have just been marked down in the sale! Click on the photo below to take a look.) 


  1. My wardrobe is not prepared for spring either, and I don't believe that i'm prepared to make it spring ready. Love those shoes.. And it's payday <3 xx

  2. I'm exactly the same, I'm awkwardly wearing knits to work in the gleaming sunshine at the mo, I need to sort it out. That trench is GORGE! I never think to even look on Lavish Alice but everyone always seems to have such gorgeous things from there!

    Here in the Netherlands, spring is yet far far away. And for my wardrobe it's been the same (although I must admit that I've just accumulated my first clothing garment WITHOUT sleeves. Mayday mayday).
