Weekly Wardrobe – layering for a walk at sunset

Chris was dealing with quickly changing light conditions when we went outside to take these photos; so you’ve got quite a mix of pictures this week from daylight to moonrise! It’s that time of year when you think you’ve got plenty of time and the next minute you know, it’s pitch black. Anyway, here I am taking a dress I wore in summer and layering it with a cosy cardigan and warm shawl for autumn…

The dress was from Joe Browns a few years ago and I’m impressed with the quality because I have worn it a lot! It’s very comfy and I love the tiny pin-tuck details on the bodice and the way it flows out to a lagenlook style. For autumn / winter style, I just layer over it.

The dark red cardigan is from Lindy Bop and the pearl buttons are so pretty. The cropped design makes it perfect for ’50’s skirts and this dress. It also has a small percentage of wool, which makes it so much warmer than it looks.

The shawl was another Joe Browns purchase and I’m relieved to find out that they aren’t out of fashion yet! I throw this on all the time when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat; or if the jumper I’m wearing is too chunky to fit under my coat, but I still want another layer over the top.

I bought the boots so many years ago, I can’t remember the name of the shop – I think it was one of those cheapy ones that popped up next to the Methodist church on Tonbridge High Street for a while. They are very warm and cosy, but not the most waterproof in the world! The name inside them says Giselle.

Shop the look:

Brown floral dress (similar).

Dark red Lindy Bop cardigan (Same). 

Grey plaid shawl (similar). 

Brown lace-up boots (similar).

The summer evening jacket. A handmade pixie hem hippy-style coat
May 9, 2018
I have to admit, although we recently took the photos for this jacket; spring is actually a very difficult season to wear it due to its lack of waterproof-ness and the inclination in England for it to suddenly rain two minutes after the sun is blazing! So that’s why I entitled this as being ideal for summer evenings. It would also be great festival fashion as the pixie hem and unusual woven fabric gives it quite hippy vibes, whilst also being warm when the sun goes down, and perfect for sitting with friends around the bonfire after a night of dancing….
A capsule wardrobe
Is a capsule wardrobe the right way to go? I tried it for a month to find out.
February 13, 2018
There are several YouTubers and bloggers I follow who live by a capsule wardrobe. They don’t just live by it; they fully recommend it, citing how wonderful it is to know they can get out of bed in the morning and easily choose an outfit that will colour co-ordinate and work for them. I have been fascinated by this, but to be honest, I’ve always thought it wasn’t really for me, I mean, if you want to see the state of my wardrobe/dressing room, then take a look at the tour coming soon to my YouTube channel! However, for four weeks at the beginning of the year, I went to stay in America (accompanying Chris on a work trip) so I really didn’t have a choice as everything I wore for a month had to fit in my suitcase. I’m currently typing this on the plane coming home and I thought I would share how I got on with my experiment with a capsule wardrobe….

It’s cardigan season! Styling a khaki linen dress with a waterfall cardigan
April 25, 2019
This black waterfall cardigan was a charity shop find, and I love it! Not all waterfall cardigans are made equal – I like the shape of them, but some have too much fabric around the back of the neck, and some don’t have enough fabric at the front (do you balance the waterfall bit on top of your boobs, or let it fall to the side of your boobs?), but this one, originally from Marks and Spencer is perfect!….
