This year, more than any other, it feels that we aren't being too premature about being optimistic or hopeful that the sea change is upon us, and that our gender will continue to make positive strides on the path already well trodden. With Mother's day this weekend I'd also like to praise my mum for all that she did raising twin girls, especially impressing upon us that the world was our oyster and we could achieve our dreams, no matter what.
Back to todays outfit builder and the inspiration has come from the street style trend, seen at various fashion week shows, of layering coats and blazers. I've chosen items from the sale, now on, at The Outnet and their own brand Iris & Ink, both of which I love and often feature on my blog. That said I can't guarantee availability of stock or sizes, so if you want to achieve the look you must buy fast!
I've picked a bright red statement trench and tailored twill blazer from Maje for the outerwear layering, thrown in a bag and scarf from a favourite accessory designer of mine Anya Hindmarch, added that to basics from Iris & Ink, to create todays 'classic with a twist' outfit.
