Clocks vs Cold

I was looking up the date of the clocks going forward when I came across all these suggestions of what do do with the extra hour of light (as if we need help but anyway), they were pretty lame suggestions such as go to the park, have a bbq, go for an evening walk, sit in the garden, hang your washing outside..etc etc. however, clearly when jotting down these suggestions down no consideration went into the fact that the clocks will change but the weather won’t!

So we thinking, It’s nearly April, the Clocks have changed, lets wear Spring/Summer clothes and pretend it’s all ok.  Unfortunately the temp is what we are really feeling and the fact that it’s averaged about 10 degrees over the last two weeks hardly has me reaching for my spring dresses. So if you feeling so over that winter coat but like me are ridiculously sensitive to the chilly temps, then layer up to conceal the fact that you still in winter mode. Put that padded coat in the loft (if you dare), bring out your light weight jacket, but under that layer up. Starting with a thermal camisole, then your shirt or long sleeve top of choice, then the thicker jumper (sleeves pulled up) or a cosy long cardi or a jacket which is roomy enough for all those layers then chuck on the Trench/light weigh Mac. Make sure the layers are all different lengths and visible, otherwise you may just look puffy…

Weekend Wear

This weekend we will be attending a 1st Birthday party.  This one is special because its good friends of ours little boy who is turning 1! And the best part is they have refreshingly chosen an adults venue rather than the usual in-door soft play.  The venue is quite chic in Chelsea, London where all the trendy Londoners hang out.  Sorry I should rephrase that to, some of the trendy Londoners, NOT all 😉

So the outfit has to look somewhat chic, but it is a kids birthday after all and I will most likely come away with chocolate cake all over me.  I need to be comfy too, as I will spend most of the time running after my 21 month old son…

SO I am thinking something along the lines of below.  A classic white silk tee with pocket detail. Jazz it up with a gold spiked necklace and white ring with gold small stud detail.  Jeans are a must, I love these distressed Current/Elliot skinnies. Snearkers obviously for all the running around, these gold Ash ones below are so cute with extra pazazz. A simple but elegant black coat to throw on over top and we all need a scarf in this weather, this gorgeous leopard print with green and gold detail is divine and brings in a nice pop of colour to the outfit.  I will carry a large black leather shopper for all the toddler paraphernalia that needs to be lugged with us.
