Today’s outfit: Textile textures and tailored lines | Kensington, London
Summer has finally arrived in London [better late than never], so Alfie and I spent the day in Kensington, West London.
We hadn’t planned to colour co-ordinate at all. I got these white trousers and waited so long for a day sunny enough to wear them.
I like how crisp and bright white looks under the sun. Bright summer colours like yellow and hot pink don’t suit me because I have olive skin so while many look forward to getting their brights out in the summer I stick to playing it safe with nudes and neutrals. White counts as a summery colour right?
I like to keep it as minimal as possible and working with neutrals allows me to do this. Plus I’m trying to scale down the amount of clothes I have in my closet in order to prevent it from exploding, by not buying seasonal colours or loud trends which are either likely to end up on Ebay next year or tagged and unworn in my crowded closet.
I got these sandals from Dune 3 months ago. They’re possibly the most comfortable pair of heels I own; with a low heel and suede insole and they are neutral enough to go with anything (which always helps to get me out of the door on time to be where I need to be).
The print bralet is currently in the sale and pairs well with culottes, full skirts and high waist pants, it was a steal at only £12 so it didn’t break the bank either.
Just as well, my sunglasses are Dior Soreal which I hear is pretty difficult to get hold of at the moment. I got lucky going to at the Harrods 10% off for Rewards Card members day and it just so happened that they got the stock in on the previous day.
We had lunch at Aubaine restaurant where we were able to sit outside. The staff were lovely and even gave Alfie a cute dog bowl of water so he felt included. I had the chilled soup, superfood salad and calamari dusted in chilli with aioli sauce. It took me so long to choose from their menu that I just ended up choosing a bit of everything.
