Morning coffees are sacred for me—I can’t start the day without one and now that we’re starting to get warmer days I’ve really been enjoying basking in the sun while I have my daily dose of caffeine. And seeing as I’m in ultimate comfort mode I’ve found the ultimate loungewear set to do it in. This set by Vince is just the kind of stylish yet comfy outfit option that’s made for relaxing in the sunshine. I love the ribbed texture and the crew neck, both features that take this knit top into classic go-to in my book. Of course I couldn’t resist the matching pants! If there’s one thing synonymous with #lockdownstyle it’s a matching loungewear set. The cream hue is fresh and perfect for spring, and I can’t rate it highly enough in terms of how comfortable it is. But it’s also something that I could wear out and about quite easily, making it really versatile.
I love starting a new season with a pair of sunnies and couldn’t resist these frames by Bottega Veneta. The exaggerated cat eye is such a fun way to make a statement, but simultaneously, black frames are so easy to pair with everything making it the perfect style chameleon. I’ll definitely be wearing these sunglasses to death over the coming months—the style is just the perfect piece to inject a little fun and energy into my spring wardrobe.
Earthy tones, think beige, caramel, terracotta, chocolate and the like are one of the major trends this season. The great thing about them is that they can colour block beautifully, making for a polished and striking combination. It’s one of the reasons I went for the hues in this outfit. These beige high waisted wide leg pants from Victoria Victoria Beckham have been such a sleek and sophisticated addition to my wardrobe. The pintuck that runs along the full length of the pants has an elongating effect and adds an interesting point of difference. Contrasted with the caramel coloured sweater by Vince it’s a modern and sophisticated pairing. Whenever I’m shopping for knits the one thing that is guaranteed to win me over are the finishing touches, such as the button detail on the sleeve of this jumper. It’s a small detail, however it’s something that elevates this jumper to a piece with extra depth.
Accessorising this outfit, I didn’t want to stray too far from the colour palette I was working with and start introducing too many bold colours. So, I went for a mini Gucci bag which features a few earthy tones to tie back to my ensemble. When it came to choosing the right shoe, I knew I needed something that offered a little contrast and my black Bottega Veneta heels were just the right silhouette and hue. Topping off this outfit, a little fun was in order so these Karen Walker frames with their angular and fashion forward feel was just the thing to tie it all together.
