Dear Winter, We’re Over.

-SPONSORED POST-

Dear Winter, we’re over. I’ve had enough of wearing the same coats and wearing at least one pair of socks every day. Spring is coming soon and we’re moving on to better things. Sincerely, Suzie.

But in all seriousness, anyone else sick of the cold? I’ve already started stocking up on lighter layers and let’s not even begin to discuss the number of pointed flats I now own. I’m ready for light layers, structured hats and lots of denim in my life over the next few months. I’ve had a bit of an obsession with blue denim recently, thanks to a certain Miss Chung and her most recent collaboration. I’m one layer away from rocking the 90’s Britney vibe, so I’ve been counteracting the latest obsession with black jackets and accessories. There’s something very transeasonal about it. 

A few weeks back (before the chill really hit Brighton) I dug out my favourite boyfriend jeans. They’re perfect for work as they’re so comfy but aren’t so slouchy that I feel inappropriate leaving the house in them. I always struggle styling them for meetings in fear of looking too casual, so I threw on a cropped tailored jacket from Sainsbury’s to balance out the casual vibes a little. Little black jackets like this are great because they add a little more than just a jumper would, but can also be worn under big coats (note: for outfit shots like this there is almost always a coat just out of shot) for those moments where we need to venture out in to the cold. 

I optimistically threw on some pointed flats as they balance out the proportions of the outfit perfectly but also help to keep the vibe on the right side of smart casual. Let’s call it sma-sual. On second thoughts, let’s not.

WHAT I WORE:

HAT: TOPSHOP

JACKET: Tu at SAINSBURY’S*

JUMPER: ZARA

JEANS: LEVI’S

SHOES: Tu at SAINSBURY’S*

BAG: ZARA

    Love the combination of the smart black blazer and super casual, light boyfriend jeans. Its such a contrast yet really works! Wish I could wear hats like you, I have been dying to find the perfect structured or floppy hat for so long but my head is so small that all the ones I have tried fall half way down my eyes…not a good look!

    Winter and I will break out in about 3 months. Winter likes to stick around until March or later around here in Canada. However, I love winter fashion and being snuggly and warm, so I'm OK with it! 🙂

    You look gorgeous, as always. Very cute clothes.
    I am done with winter too! I don't really know how Brighton's weather compares to the mountains of North Carolina, but I have been constantly shivering lately. It NEEDS to be spring now. Please and thank you.

    Sainsburys do have some really good clothes, I wished I'd stocked up on more high-neck tops for the transitional period!

    Adore the flats! I'm not one for pointed toed shoes myself, but they go amazingly with this outfit. Feeling you on the boredom with the dull weather – can it be spring now? My wardrobe would be put to so much better use.
