Still trying to get basics right 2

Country life requires darker tones and loads of pockets, no one take a handbag when walking the dog.  The field where I walk for an hour each day is (still!)a mire and I am sick of washing everything after just one wear.  My height and shoulders rugby players would kill for,  mean that most of the time I look a little like...

He was actually quite yummy, (hence second gratuitous image) such a shame about the slightly unhinged version that we see now.
Back to clothes, these skinny cargos are from Oasis, they are a great fit and replacement to my J Brand Houlihans, which although a size 10 always seemed to stretch until I was swimming in them, (secretly I probably just liked writing that, since it has never happened before and will probably never happen again)
These were £15 in the sale (vs over £200) and a much better fit and more comfortable.

The hoodie is from Lamis Khamis, I was inspired by the owner of Bray Story near Heston Blumenthal's restaurants.  She mixes hers with original 80s Alaia and Danish jewellery and looks very chic, but then she is of tiny proportions and has a delicacy that I can only dream of.
The look isn't good on me, so I have tried to make a little more feminine with waterfall cardigan (Zara), ruched cotton top (New Look) and an armful of dangly jewellery.

 The beads are similar to Marco Bicego, if you squint and look away quickly...


  1. I remember seeing those Oasis trousers, wish I had bought them now!

  2. they are really comfortable, don't bag and you can get loads in the pockets, I bet you could pick up for £1 on Ebay by now!

  3. Love those trousers, they are gorgeous! :)

  4. I really need to improve my pics, I think an iphone may be beckoning!
