Have you ever had one of those unexpected hectic weeks where you’d envisaged cruising straight through to the weekend but somehow found yourself feeling like you worked an entire week before Tuesday was even over? Nothing has gone quite to plan this week; I’ve been putting out other people’s fires at work and haven’t had any time to focus on all the
extra workload challenges thrown in my corner. The woman who replenishes the candy machine has been working overtime this week because of me and I’m bummed I haven’t even had the chance to step outside the office during daylight hours to enjoy the mini heat wave we had in London the other day (it was like, double digit degrees!).
I know it’s terribly cliched but I find retail therapy calms me down. I find it soothing to wander quietly into one of my favourite stores and mentally put together outfits. Luckily I get to do this through T-Styled Me’s personal Styling and Shopping services for my client so it doesn’t get too expensive 😛
I’ve been working hard putting together an early Spring Capsule Wardrobe for one of my clients and I have been so excited about helping her experiment with new fabrics, textures and colours that she hasn’t worked with before. Below are snapshots of the outfits I’ve put together as well as ideas on how to style the pieces together.
Brightly Coloured Neon
Whistles Yellow Sculptured Tee, Reiss Finlee Back Gathered Off White Coat, Whistles Yellow French Stillettos, Whisltes Mathilda Tweed Trousers, my YSL Chyc Patent Clutch, House of Harlow Pyramid Necklace
Neons come in and out of fashion so I would suggest it’s important to experiment with bright colours that will work with your current wardrobe … Think about tops that go with your jeans or printed skirts that you can pair up with a chunky knit and ankle boots. If you’re wary, try some heels or a clutch for a pop of colour that doesn’t overwhelm you until you are more confident with playing with colour.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, if you gravitate and love certain colours, there’s definitely a way to mix these into your wardrobe.
Luxe Pinks, creams and neutrals
Chloe Bi-colour Sandals – Easy to match, super comfortable and stylish sandals.
Black and White Monochrome geometric patterns
Whitles Mathilda Tweed Top, Matching Trousers and Navy French 75 Suede Stilettos
Hope you guys enjoyed the sneak peak of my Spring wardrobe edit for my client.
Would love to hear from you and definitely drop me a line if you’re interested in a personal styling or shopping session with me
