Seeing as you lot were kind enough to feedback nice things on my previous ‘A Week in Outfits’ post I thought I’d revisit the concept and let you in on my wardrobe choices for five days in a row again. Expect monochrome, a lot of leg covering options and a rain mac – oh it’s the epitome of trend setting going on here as always. I’ll save the waffling and without further ado…
I can’t think of a better way to spend the rainy Monday Bank Holiday than to trek to the countryside to go and visit family members that are braving the weather and camping. I jest, I jest. It was in fact awesome – such a great day filled with lots of food and laughs – but it was a bit cold…and wet, so this outfit was conducted with that in mind. Annoyingly those Hunters are no longer made, but similar ones are available and they’ve ended up being such a well-worn purchase. Though I can admit that this wasn’t the most stylish ensemble, especially when you take into account that I was also using Mark’s work rucksack as a handbag.
Though I did spend most of the day surgically attached to my laptop wearing some questionable attire I did crack out something a bit more socially acceptable for dinner in the evening with an old Uni friend. We dined at Polpo – AMAZING place – and my love for the meatballs there did make me regret my tight trouser situation somewhat, but actually I quite liked this combination. Casual, with a bit of dressing up involved on the bottom half. I’ll definitely be wearing this again.
WEDNESDAY: Topshop Black T-Shirt // Whistles Ripped-Knee Jeans
Lily popped over on Wednesday and helped me film a cooking video which I’m very excited about and we ate, sat and edited for pretty much a whole day and despite a few outfit changes – filming makes me sweaty man – this is what I spent most of my day in. I think these jeans may be just as comfortable as my tracksuit bottoms; chic tracksuit bottoms – that’s what they are.
It was a laptop day again, but I did venture out to IKEA in the evening – oh do I know how to have fun, eh? It’s not the kind of place you dress up to attend, though it did feel like a date-night with dinner for two and wandering around hand in hand, so I kept things casual with a warm and fuzzy knit because it was a wee bit chilly.
Me in pink?! I know, medical attention is on its way. Friday was a day of two halves with a video filming session in the morning and then travelling back to Brighton to see my family in the evening so I needed something that was comfortable and subtly colourful enough that my Mum would l looked well when I saw her. This pink sweater from COS worked a treat. Though she did still attempt to send me back to Brighton with a week’s worth of frozen dinners in my boot.
Well that was a bit of a casual week, but hey I promise something a little more exciting is coming your way for an updated ‘Capsule Wardrobe’ video is coming v.soon…
