Trans-seasonal Dressing

This was an outfit I wore to the hairdressers and for a spot of shopping. It was a lovely sunny day, but still cold (my favourite kind of day!). So I threw on my COS coat that I have vowed to stop wearing but evidently it's too good to resist, with my new sandals. I love this combination, even though it was a bit of a confusing one (it brings to mind the of the trend of denim cut offs and Ugg boots, which thankfully has abated). 
Today I am coming back from Paris (sob), but I have so many exciting posts that I cannot wait to share!

Just COS...

It's probably no surprise to read that my all time favourite shop is COS. I cannot sing its praises enough! It is at the perfect price point and the quality is amazing - I have items from COS that I have owned for years that I still wear today. Even though it is a little pricier than other high street stores (I am thinking particularly of Zara), the quality is infinitely better! Its my go-to for tops more than anything, their silk shirts and knitwear are especially wonderful! 
I thought I would share with you my current COS wish list, its considerably larger than this, so I narrowed it down to a very lovely selection! 

In The Shadows

 Last week we had some lovely sunshine, it was perfect blog shooting weather so we went to find a perfect spot. For some reason, we decided that was this gloomy, dark, shadowy wall. I wish I could tell you why, but I honestly cannot. Anyway I like the photos - but you would never guess it was as bright and warm as it actually was! So, wearing leather trousers, a mesh jumper (bit daring) and my current favourite shoes, I balanced on a steep hill in heels to create this sloping-gloomy-moody-all black atmosphere.

Converse Again!

Yesterday we had a big Sunday roast and of course lots of chocolate eggs! In the morning before I ate my own body weight in food, we took a few pictures in a spot you've seen before. I am still loving wearing my Converse, especially (well, only) with all black outfits! This time its with all the usual suspects - black skinny jeans, black jumper and a black coat. Consistency is definitely my strong point!
In very exciting news I am going to Paris tomorrow for two nights, i'll still get some posts done while I am there but I am so excited to shoot blog pictures!!

As you may have read on here many times before - there is nothing I love more than simple outfits. In my opinion, there is nothing more stylish than and outfit consisting of wardrobe basics and amazing shoes. Little details like the rips on the jeans keep it a little more interesting, but as I always dress from the shoes up, I love to keep them the main focus of an outfit.
