Quick post today. Summer has hit its stride here and it's hovering around 30 degrees most days. Pleasant, and not too hot, unlike last year when it was a furnace-like 40 degrees + for weeks on end. I shouldn't tempt fate, as I know many other states are experiencing an awful heatwave, and it is only the end of Jan. It may well heat up yet.
I realise that it is frigidly cold in the North America right now, so I guess I should be very pleased that it's so pleasant here.
Despite the heat, my mind is turning to my winter wardrobe. This year I won't be buying much. I've got more than enough coats for our (usually) mild winters. If I'm being honest, I probably don't really Need anything.
However, it's unrealistic of me to think that I won't be 'refreshing' my wardrobe a bit. Here's a list of things I might be adding:
Black cashmere crew neck sweater
Dark grey marle cashmere crew neck sweater
Black cashmere leggings (thanks, Tabitha, for your suggestions!)
Mid blue slim jeans, not too skinny, but not too baggy.
Black knee high flat boots - not too flat, say 3cm heel
Skirt - just above knee, slight A-line in a slightly graphic print or light-weight tweed
That's about it. Where I will source the above is a total mystery, so I'd love your help: do you have any suggestions for where to source the above?
The possible problem is that I'm petite, so a lot of mainstream labels don't really work on me. I don't mind the sweaters being slouchy, but I don't want to disappear in them!
I'm about 5'2" (157cm) on a good day.
Any links or other info would be very gratefully received.
Have a great weekend!
