I'm really excited to be not only wearing sugary pastels (this week's #iwillwearwhatilike theme) but to be wearing Winser London for the very first time.Until a couple of months ago I hadn't heard of this young brand before, but I'm officially in love with their quality and styling. It's run by Kim Winser, herself a 40+ woman, who is obviously someone who understands what older women want from their wardrobes.
The key pieces I'm wearing - the pink cotton sweater and the jersey wide leg trousers - are so beautifully made and comfortable that I could probably wear them as loungewear. In fact I've worn the trousers to London and back, and anything that copes with a total of five hours on the train and doesn't annoy me or make me uncomfortable is a winner in my eyes.
The gorgeous pastel colours really make the outfit, but I wanted to add a little hit of bold so (unusually for me) I went with black: An embossed cross body bag from Zara and my trusty black cat eye sunglasses. My third pastel was the grey pointed toe heels from ASOS I first wore a couple of weeks ago - and who doesn't want a fourth? The taupe flat cap adds a certain boyishness to a somewhat ladylike outfit, plus I've always been a hat girl. I have to thank Carrie Bradshaw for making flat caps acceptable...!
This is a very special post for me as I'm introducing for the very first time a blogger collaboration I'm very proud to be part of and the reason I'm wearing Winser London today - scroll down for all the details and to see what this new project is all about. Good times ahead!
And of course do add your outfits to this week's link up and you may be featured next week if you've linked up pastels!
