What I Wore: Cool Days

 If there’s one thing I solidly shopped around for for months it’s my much-loved Balmain blazer. It’s a purchase I haven’t regretted as it’s the kind of wardrobe staple that’s made many an appearance at many an event and looks like it will continue to do so for years to come. There are so many blazer options out there so when choosing one be sure to look for one made from a long lasting natural fibre such as wool, has structured shoulders to keep its shape, and has a defined silhouette but is roomy enough to allow for easy layering. And you can never go wrong with black.

My ASOS leggings have been a saviour during my pregnancy as not only are they on trend they’re really comfortable which is a must when you’ve got a growing bump. A subtle way to create balance when you are wearing leggings during a pregnancy is to pair it with an oversized top or loose tunic to complement its streamlined silhouette. I have loved this Dion Lee cape blouse because it’s loose enough for maternity dressing but will definitely be able to make its way into my regular wardrobe post-pregnancy.

I’ve worked this look back with my Eddie Borgo choker and Jerome Dreyfuss bag plus my new favourite Alaïa heels. With its unique button-like straps, it adds an additional layer of detailing to an otherwise pared back look.

My DITA cat-eye sunglasses add a playful touch (handy hint: opt for a cat-eye shape if you want to accentuate your cheekbones) and help add the perfect finishing touch to my outfit.
