Just when you’re thinking that summertime is finally here –
BAM the weather changes again.
I really enjoyed sitting out in the garden over the Easter
weekend, in the shorts and vest top I wore in a very humid South East Asia only
a few months ago, soaking up the rays and putting shrimps on the barbie.
But then England did the thing it usually does and decided
to deprive its civilians of nice weather for a prolonged amount of time and
instead made it cold and wet again.
This meant that I, like many others I’m sure, had to dig out
the coat that I absent-mindedly pushed to the back of my wardrobe only one week
ago and make the decision to forget about that shiny new pair of sandals.
To be fair, I actually didn’t mind having another excuse to
wear the coat I’ve only been the owner of for a couple of months now. I love my
fluffy, baby pink number from Missguided (a Christmas present from my Mother)
which I wore to death on my recent trip around North America. (You can read my four
posts in the America series here, here, here and here.)
For this particularly blustery day, I put the coat over my new
floral tunic from ZARA – which I bought using a gift card that my boyfriend’s
parents generously gave me for Christmas. This tunic has a summery feel to it with
its vivid yellow, orange, pink and blue floral hues. I picked it out because
the print is quite unique with the combination of florals and stripes and I
This tunic is also a perfect piece in the sense that it can
be layered for cooler weather, or just worn by itself with sandals for when
temperatures improve. I adore it!
On this day, I had to team it with thick leggings and a
chunky knitted scarf, as well as the coat, to gain some extra warmth as it was
rather chilly. I also added my Doc-Marten style, lace-up boots with a heel as I
like to stomp around in them and pretend that I have an attitude.
Additionally, my Mum kindly let me borrow her fabulous Louis
Vuitton satchel bag, which conveniently complimented my beige scarf, to dress
up my smart-casual outfit and deliver a cool, laid-back look.
