I’m guilty! I haven’t blogged in a while.
In the space of three months I’ve started a new PR job, been to Rome and Cyprus and have an adorable new nephew…(Prince) George! So my life has been a little whirl-wind recently but I’ve missed blogging and am looking forward to publishing all the fashion and beauty posts I’ve got in store!
I wanted to talk a little about my current go-to weekend outfit. We all have one, let’s face it. That outfit you’re obsessed with that you wear as much as possible to different occasions with various groups of friends because you just love it that much!
Well, my current go-to winter wardrobe staples are sweater dresses and over the knee boots. Obsessed!
There’s something effortlessly chic about a sweater dress, especially in grey, camel or burgundy – classic winter tones. My all time favourite brand for this intelligent staple is the glorious British fashion brand, Joseph. The sweater dress I’m wearing in the picture below is by Joseph – it’s beautifully soft and the perfect smokey shade of grey/brown that complements my boots. A little fact for you – Louise Trotter is the Creative Director of Joseph and its under her influence that the brand has gained enormous credibility in the fashion world (in my opinion!). Joseph epitomises luxurious elegance, impeccable quality and wonderful, wearable tones of camel, grey and nudes that you just want to eat…!
I’m also a massive fan of Whistles sweater dresses – the length is always perfect and the quality amazing. My fashion motto has always been to invest in my clothing and invest wisely – I’d much rather save for one item of Joseph clothing that I know I’ll wear each Autumn Winter season rather than cheaper brands that are bin-ready after a few wears (you know what I mean!). I’m the same with accessories – I’ve always invested in designer handbags and scarves with my work bonuses because I’m a lover of designer items and really do prefer quality over quantity.
So ‘obsessed’ also describes my current love for over the knee boots. I recently invested in a beautiful pair of Carvela for Kurt Geiger grey suede over the knee boots which I’m literally wearing all the time – with my sweater dresses or over my 7 jeans. I can’t get enough of them! Having bought them in black last year, I knew the grey would be the perfect investment to complement my current obsession with grey and camel tones this season.
As the Joseph sale is now on in Selfridges, I may invest in another sweater dress (I have my eye on a heavy knit camel number…) for next year. A girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do…
