This was one of those outfits that was the ultimate in practicality: I got it spot-on for temperature, occasion and style. We had a weekend away in Twickenham with friends, so I had that problem of making a decision of what to wear in advance, with no way to go back in and change like you do at home….!
Firstly, the grey striped blazer: an ingenious and very versatile piece. I’m not sure I’ve seen a long-line blazer before, but this one really works (the stripes and the cut are perfect). It added the warmth of a long cardigan but it smartened my outfit instead of making it look sloppy which knitwear sometimes does. Secondly, my choice of footwear had to be suitable for a walk into Richmond for a pub lunch, so I went with my new FitFlop Nubuck shoes which are the most gorgeous autumnal khaki colour. I’ve wanted to try FitFlop shoes for ages – and these did not disappoint. Crazy comfy, no rubbing, great colour, smarter than trainers… I can highly recommend them.
As usual with me I added a couple of great accessories – my current favourite statement piece that is the Accessorize camera bag and a big chunky crystal necklace (sadly no longer available) from Anna Lou of London. I had comfy feet, enough room for a pub lunch thanks to my loose-fit trousers and I was perfect temperature-wise: I was winning 100% that day as far as I was concerned…!
Do you have many of those days when your outfit was absolutely perfect for the occasion, the weather, the activity?
