Now that my boyfriend lives in London, it means I get a chance to explore fun new locations to shoot outfits - unfortunately with it being winter it starts getting dull at 2pm, so despite the fact I lugged three fabulous outfits in my suitcase this weekend, I didn't get the chance to shoot even one of them, slightly soul-destroying.  Luckily I have these photos from the the other day that I can post instead!  

If you know anything about my style, you'll probably be able to tell that I don't believe in having a 'summer/winter' wardrobe - part of the fun of styling outfits is the challenge of how to make items weather appropriate, why shouldn't I be able to wear my pretty new playsuit when it's cold? I'm no layering queen, but I was pretty proud when I slung on my fishnet top and it looked half-decent, plus with my fave OML jacket I was super toasty for the harsh streets of London!  What do you do to winter-ify summer pieces?

  1. I don't believe in having a separate summer/winter wardrobe either. I mean obviously you wouldn't wear a thick fluffy jumper in summer as that's just daft haha but why not wear playsuits and little dresses in winter especially if you're like me and on a limited budget. I love how you've layered this fishnet top with the playsuit, it looks really good! Definitely winterfied! I'm all for jumpers over dresses and I'm forever in opaque tights in the winter!

  12. I have barely any distinction between my summer or winter clothes either - I'm still trying to make crop tops work for me in November but alas I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that maybe it is a little too cold. I love the way you included the fishnet top in this outfit though, and the jacket looks so cool! xo
