No sooner have I concluded I am top of my on trend game, jumping on the ‘pencils skirts are back train’, than I am knocked off.  Let’s thanks Grazia’s bumper fashion issue for revealing that trilbys are out and baseball caps are in.  I will chance becoming even less cool with the following utterance – Le sigh.

But let’s not forget the burgundy bag; heralded first as AW11’s colour but in fact having another bash at it in AW12.

And so I will conclude that fashion is fickle and there are a mere few who can stay ahead of the wave.  Let’s just say this – I’m no surfer.

ava hat – Reiss (last worn here)
jumper & shirt – H&M (last worn here)
skirt – Autograph @ M&S
romelia court – Aldo
necklace – Marc Jacobs via ShopBop
watch – Michael Kors, tribute bracelet – Stella and Dot
leather bag – Autograph @ M&S

denim lead – Ancol, coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo 


P.S.  Whilst this was perfect for work the combination of tiny step inducing pencil skirt and high heels was too much for dog walking; heels were subbed post lunch.

      I don’t know… I think my fashion radar has become skewed – I would love a baseball cap (real leather only please) but my child sized head will not allow it – for now the trilby will be my friend

      I love stripes and kinda think the same, they are always classic and never really out of style – winner

    I love this look! I adore everything about that top- the slouchy shoulders, the boat-neck and the nautical stripes.

    I agree that would have been too much for a simple dog walk for me as well but for casual fridays at the office or coffee with the gals it is a perfect casual yet chic look.

      I guess I’m lucky that every day at the office is casual if you want it to be 🙂
