Dressing for this time of year is always a tricky task, especially in London. Chilly mornings lead into warm hazy afternoons, and in between the ever-confusing weather, you have the potential warmth of the underground to contend with. So with this in mind, never has transitional dressing been more important, and for me, it's all about lightweight outerwear layers and the right shoe.
Today was one of those days, the sun was shining, yet the wind was blowing, but smug old me had the sartorial answer for such outfit/weather dilemmas: the duster coat! Loose, light, yet full-length, it was the perfect cover-up. Add in a pair of backless mules to the fashion mix and I was embracing this whole transitional dressing malarky like a pro.
Talking of said mules, these tan beauties from Dolcis haven't left my feet since they were delivered. Unbelievably comfortable and oh-so-versatile, they are all kinds of effortless. I also have to give a nod to this bad-boy leopard print number, it's actually a swimsuit from Kini, but my obsession with animal print runs deep, so this will no way ever just be reserved for the poolside.
