Yesterday I went to Richmond, one of my favourite places in London, after going up during the day to North London for work. I wore my black biker jacket because the weather forecast said sunshine and milder temperatures, so I dared to leave the winter coats at home - I'm so glad I did.
When the weather's this nice a trip down to the river is always a good idea, so a late lunch in a restaurant overlooking the river was just what we needed after a day on the tube and a lot of walking. (I can recommend the Pitcher and Piano in Richmond because the food is a-mazing and the views from the south-facing conservatory or terrace make it the perfect place for a relaxing meal in the sun.)
As we did a lot of walking throughout the whole day (and a six-hour round trip in the car to get to London) I needed really comfy clothes that were still going to keep me warm. UK weather is nothing but unpredictable... I had gloves in my bag - just in case.
As a rule I'm not a fan of too much black, so everything else in this outfit was kept light or bright: My favourite coral cashmere sweater, my I-still-love-it Thomas Wylde skull scarf (which was THE scarf about four or five years ago) and my wide leg trousers, which many of you may recognise as my wedding trousers. The black slip ons added the tiniest amount of height with those chunky soles (so my trousers didn't drag on the floor) as well being easy to walk in. The silk scarf kept my neck warm without being over chunky or too woolly-warm and my Hobbs orange tote is working with just about everything I wear at the moment, if my last few outfit posts are anything to go by...!
[I WORE] MY FAVOURITE CORAL CASHMERE SWEATER, MY I-STILL-LOVE-IT THOMAS WYLDE SKULL SCARF AND MY WIDE LEG TROUSERS, WHICH MANY OF YOU MAY RECOGNISE AS MY WEDDING TROUSERS.
This spot down at Richmond is a beautiful place to take photos (the last time I photographed an outfit there was in 2013 when I was all over the wedge trainers trend) - if only it were down the road from me, I think I'd be there every weekend...!
