Outfit: The New Maxi Skirt

Last week I spent a few hours up in Notting Hill, popping in to see Rose and then on to lunch with Anneli at Nama (with Ally from Tom Ford who gave us my new ALL TIME favourite perfume, here).  London's weather has been pretty impossible for the last few days, and this was no exception. One minute it's too hot to have anything on, the next you're rushing for an umbrella. This is my mild attempt at dressing for the occasion. 

The jacket is old, really old. I forgot I even owned it but Lopez decided to hide in the back of my wardrobe and I found it whilst trying to retrieve him. Its from Topshop, and funnily enough there is a really similar one in store here, and sleeveless one here. The shoes were a cheeky private sale purchase a few weeks ago from Christian Louboutin. I never thought I'd be the girl that swanned around town in her Loub-sandals, but hey. They're past season but I've seen them come up quite a lot on Vestiaire Collective

The top and skirt are new from Zara - I fell out of love with them last year but this season's collection is really, really good. In fact, their TRF offering is probably the strongest part (I will be increasing my jacket collection with this one that my friend, Angie was wearing when I saw her last). The skirt is perfect for this kind of weather, I've been living in it for the last couple of weeks as it's super soft and almost passes as Isabel Marant (as does half of Zara right now, come to think of it).

Last but not least, my sunglasses. This is my third pair of these and I nearly cried when I friend gave me them last week - they're from Jimmy Choo's collaboration with Carrera from a couple of years ago. The previous pairs, may they rest in peace, ended up in the back of a taxi and on the beach respectively. Losing the second pair induced actual tears. You can buy them here
