Wearing: Culottes, shirt, backpack and bomber jacket all c/o White Stuff Boots from Whistles
I think in the UK we dress according to the weather so much - it might be spring, but the temperature is so variable that you can go from being in bare legs and sandals, to back to boots within a few hours. I've packed away my winter coat at long last but the glorious weather of the weekend all too soon makes way for chillier climes, so how to dress accordingly?
A bomber jacket is still a really current shape for outwear and White Stuff have nailed it with this knit one, which is warm but not as suffocating as a puffa style. It's so easy to wear and I've found myself reaching for it over dresses for work as well as with jeans at the weekend. I love navy so it's no wonder it's integrated itself so easily into my wardrobe.
A great way to bare a leg without freezing (and I've definitely packed the tights away, now, too!) is to opt for a midi length and then add a boot, so that you have a hint of skin showing but your toes are still warm. Culottes are a really good way to wear the length, especially for work, as these grey ones are smart enough to be dressed up with a shirt, like this striped one, and layering is another great way to add a bit of temperature control to your look!
A leather backpack is such a wardrobe staple of mine, and I was gutted when my favourite one broke the other week, but this one from White Stuff is a pretty good replacement - it's so useful to use everyday and even fits my laptop in it (winning) and the front pockets and tassel ties set it apart from other high street styles. It is informal enough to use all year round - I'll be chucking my beach essentials in it as well as taking it on summer walks.
