A few quick outfit snaps for you today, taken pre-brunch at The Ivy Chelsea Garden, by my friend Bianca. I feel it's almost become a tradition for me to show you my food; an outfit and an aesthetically pleasing plate of less than healthy food is what I seem to be providing as of late.
It was a beautiful Sunday here in The UK, a day that felt like the last of summer. Although the weather was calling out for a pretty, floaty dress, I, not being one to resist a good pair of tailored trousers, couldn't help but begin my transitional A/W dressing. These Prince of Wales check trousers have been hanging on my rail, calling out to me. I'm longing to reintroduce my frilly shirts, pussybow blouses, suit trousers and capes to the outside world- so, I met myself halfway and decided upon this frilly halter neck blouse from River Island. It's probably one of my most worn pieces as of late, and I've found it to be extremely versatile. I wore it tirelessly on my recent trip to Brighton and it suited both my day and evening wear.
I've also become quite enamoured with this dramatic, floppy straw hat, bought from H&M a few years ago now. For me, it just adds the right amount of interest to what might've been a rather plain and simple outfit.
I've also become a bit obsessed with photographing things on attractively-surfaced steps. Is that weird? Probably. I shared a photo in that vein on Instagram and it went down rather well, so I'm thinking of turning it into a regular thing; #StuffOnSteps - a la my pre-existing #DoorAppreciation. I'm probably thinking too far into this. I'd say I need a hobby, but this is pretty much it.
Are you looking forward to Autumn? Are you stocking up on new pieces already?
