Happy Wednesday all! Half-way through the week now, and it’s been a busy one so far for me. After a work event last night then making an appearance at a friend’s wine and cheese evening I needed a laid-back day and outfit today. So I went for a comfortable maxi dress and sneakers combination. This H&M basics maxi dress is perfect for these days. My tying my hair up and adding some statement jewellery and a white belt round my waist dressed it up enough to wear to work on a no-meetings day. The cobalt suede jacket finishes the outfit of brilliantly – I got stopped so many times today by people asking me where this was from, it really is stunning. Adding these bold, statement touches to a basic, simple dress and sneakers combination is a neat trick to create a fabulous but casual outfit.
London is looking stunning in the bright Spring weather we are having currently. While it might not be as warm as I’d like the beautiful blooms and clear blue skies are making up for it. I love how this clashes with the sharp modern architecture of the city. It really does make my lunch time wanders something to look forward to. I spent my evening cooking, writing this post and playing with our kitten, Simba, who discovered selfies tonight so we enjoyed goofing around a bit!! Nice way to unwind from work and a busy start to the week!
