The Mount

This weekend's weather definitely reminded us whats in store didn't it? I couldn't believe how quickly the temperature dropped. I'd originally planned to wear this little dress for an outfit post but there was no way in the world I could have stood coatless in the street to take the pictures. Instead I threw on some cozy staples so I could share a rather special new arrival with you...

Long time readers of the blog will know I went a bit nuts when L.K.Bennett did a press breakfast last year and kindly gave us all limited edition Mariel bags with our names hand painted on by the renown fashion illustrator, Boyarde. I wore mine to death, in fact I still do! So when they asked if I'd like to collaborate with them for a reader competition as they relaunch the collaboration with a range of leather initialled stickers I leaped at the chance. View the full letter line up here.

You can put the stickers (a bargain £19 each) on anything, but L.K.Bennett have released 4 new colourways of the the infamous Mariel bag in time for the collaboration's release too (see them here). I just can't tell you how happy I am with my new pillar-box-red Mariel, complete with AH illustrations. I've also bought a few more to put on other bags I own (suitcases, LV neverfull, the works) as I just love them so much.

I plan to wear mine with everything so I apologise for the Instagram bombardment in advance. This outfit is a typical thrown-together-weekender. A striped top is a given for any outfit (in my book). As you know, I have tonnes of them but this was a present from my sister last Christmas from Petit Bateau here. My cape is a couple of seasons old from The Outnet so I've put some similars at the base of this post - it is still available in some sizes here. The jeans are new, and a new length for me which I'm loving. Find them here.

My boots are actually from L.K.Bennett too, here. I have a few pairs of ankle boots from them but these really are another level of goodness. I wore them with a little LBD for my birthday drinks on Friday and they look equally as fab with more dressed-down pieces. I love the gold details on the laces and the heel is just the right height to combine looking smart and being able to walk...

Ah I love these photos, I used to live in a house at the bottom of those steps - such a nice throwback.
