Primark t-shirt / Peacocks jeans (very old) / French Connection trench coat / Kookai bag (via charity shop)
Yesterday I undertook the mammoth task of swapping over my winter wardrobe with my summer one, which involved hauling two large plastic tubs down from our attic and sifting through a sea of shorts and summer dresses trying to decide which items would make it into my closet. I was pleasantly surprised at how many things I was genuinely thrilled to see again, and I'm pleased to report that I feel very little desire to buy new Summer clothing (which is fortunate considering I'm so poor). One day I hope I won't have to perform this silly seasonal wardrobe change over, but for now my clothing storage space is too limited to keep everything out the entire year, not to mention my clothing collection is still far too large.
I've spent the majority of this week in shorts and t-shirt as it's been so gloriously sunny, but today was slightly cooler so I brought out my navy French Connection trench coat and a pair of jeans instead. Out of all of the clothing I own, this trench has to be one of my favourite pieces - it's a much better (longer) length than the beige trench I have from Topshop, and the navy is a true dark navy which is often difficult to come by. I purchased this in the FCUK sale last winter at about £150 cheaper than it had been at full price, an incredible bargain. I can't stop wearing this Primark t-shirt, so much so that I bought another one in a blood orange/red colour. My dad said they remind him of the t-shirts he used to wear when he was a kid, and they in turn remind me of the t-shirts the kids wear in the film Super 8. I wore this to attend a meeting (read: cup of coffee and chat about smutty novels) in town regarding a Crime Network conference I'm assisting with on Monday, very exciting stuff!
Oh in case you're wondering what I'm reading today, it's another Mills & Boon gem; The Colour of the Sea by Rosemary Hammond. Tell me, do you do a 'wardrobe switch-over' each season or do you keep the same clothing in your closet all year round?
