The Fashion Clinic #1: In Between Days

In Between Collage2

“Mummy, the weather was really funny today. It was sunny then cloudy, rainy then windy, and I think I even saw a little bit of snow! It’s like all four seasons in one day,” my youngest son said to me the other day. Well, I think the bit about the snow might be a fib but otherwise he is spot-on in describing the inclement weather that seems to typify the British spring, autumn and even summer (let’s face it, I can probably count on one hand the number of scorching hot days we had last year)

It does make it rather difficult to get dressed in the morning as the temperature can drop or rise by several degrees depending on whether or not the sun decides to grace us with its presence. For me, layering is the name of the game as well as carrying a bag big enough to hold both sunglasses and an umbrella!

On my list of essentials are a well-cut jacket, a pair of flats (ballerinas or Converse), some slouchy jeans that can be rolled up or down, as well as lots of jersey pieces and lightweight knits. Luckily there are some great transitional pieces around at the moment including those in the picture above:

1. Heart Elbow Patch Jumper, £22 from Asos

2. French Sole Classic Black Ballet Flats, £65, also from Asos

3. Suede Jacket with Frills, £119 from Zara

4. Speckle Roll Sleeve Mini Dress, £26 from Topshop

5. Dip Dye T-shirt, £35 from Oasis

6. 1969 Real Straight Skimmer Jeans, £44.95 from Gap
