Friday... maybe the last mid-season look?

It's been an incredible mild few weeks in London this last month, so I've managed to carry on bare legged pretty comfortably, at a time when I'd normally be begging Hubby Dearest to help me organise my wardrobe switch... He has obviously been sending quite a few thank yous up to the weather gos, as you can imagine.

With that in mind, I've managed to recycle one of this Summer's favourite outfits on a Friday, which enabled me to find a few minutes in an otherwise hectic week to picture it for today's blog.


Although I usually prefer flared skirts, I did fall in love with this laser cut detailed skirt despite its fitted shape. I love the texture and details, and the slightly stretchy fabric makes it very easy to live in... During the Summer I wore it with sleeveless blouses and my beloved Aquazzura sandals, but as October was upon us this week I decided to add a short trench jacket to keep the early morning cold out. And some sky-high slingbacks of course.

I think from next week I may have to start giving up on my dream of the Indian Summer...


Outfit details:
- Skirt with embroidered cut-out designs, Karen Millen
- Military style shirt with pockets, Zara (a few seasons old already)
- Camel slingbacks, from a boutique in Paris, these Jimmy Choo ones are close
- Phantom tote bag, CĂ©line at Vestiaire Collective

Absolutely stunning. I love laser cutouts and leather-like details in general, and I think pairing it with nude colors and a classic trench really gives the outfit a lot of sophistication. You look lovely!

Beautiful shades. i've been off radar for a little while.
I'm down at the end of October ( late 50th birthday celebration) and meeting a few bloggers, do you want to come along?

Gorgeous skirt. I think you look better in straight skirts, fwiw.

Sandra, you look gorgeous! Sorry for the long absence, it has been a struggle to find time to post with a newborn baby :)

If you don't mind, I had two questions :p Love your necklace, wondering where you got it? Also, wanted to ask about the Lisa coat from Joseph (I think you had it in camel colour?). I want to order online, but unsure in regards to sizing. Do you find it true to size? What size was yours, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks!!

Hi Mona! Don't worry, I understand totally. I'm just coming to 16 weeks preggo myself and between feeling sick ALL DAY and working like an idiot I've been a very bad blogger.
The necklace is by Natasha Dahlberg. The wrap coat is a bit large for size, I wear a size 38.
Good luck with baby!!
