Sound the klaxon, it’s time for my first fashion post of 2016 and you may have noticed it’s been a long time coming, shamefully my last outfit post was two months ago. Sharing outfits has always been my absolute fave and it’s the main reason I started Cagney and Lace but lately I’ve been uninspired by my seemingly samey samey wardrobe – with Spring and my honeymoon fast approaching I’ve started adding pieces to my collection and today it felt like a good time to capture my ensemble and get the Olympus out.

First let me introduce you to three new items that have entered my life, step forward the pale pink trench, striped knit and blue scarf. Topshop is often full to the rafters with trend led garms so I was shocked and delighted to discover this blush coloured beauty earlier this week. Trench coats are one of those timeless numbers that elevate the simplest of looks so I’m always happy to add another to my stash. Next up is the humble striped knit, that fail safe wardrobe essential that is perfect for those don’t know what to wear days. Finally welcome the softest blue scarf which I gravitated towards in a recent visit to & Other Stories, believe it or not I used to wear all of the blue when I was a teen so after a few years off it’s time to say hello to fifty shades of blue. Rounding off my look I added my favourite faux leather skinnys, well loved Alexa satchel and the comfiest leopard print boots around.

Today may have been the perfect Sunday – Sadie slept 10pm until 10am giving me time to get ready for our trip to John Lewis to compile our wedding gift list (eeeee it’s really starting to happen). After a cake and latte break we headed back to my mum and dads for a Sunday roast before walking off those calories as a family. Bliss.

What have you been up to this weekend? Do you enjoy mixing wardrobe staples?

      Ah thank you Victoria! Faux leather skinny are such a good piece to have as you can literally change your top and you're ready for an evening out.
