The stars have aligned – both big kids have decided that working in their bedrooms is the way forward and the baby has also decided it is her nap time which means a few minutes to speed type this blog before I hear ….’Muuuuuuummmmmmy!’ from the top of the stairs and the baby wakes up.
Fashion loves a hybrid and this week it’s shackets – that shirt/jacket combo – which is in the spotlight. I’ve been wearing an old Topshop one more or less on repeat now since the weather has warmed up and it’s the perfect lightweight layer. So here are some other options for you if you are struggling with what to wear on top to keep the goose-bumps at bay.
If your wardrobe consists predominantly of plain pieces, then this fairly subtle camo print is a good way of livening things up a bit.
This comes in a washed black, khaki and animal print, which is probably my favourite.
Another pattern which is pretty subtle.
Khaki is a practical colour and goes with everything.
The details are what makes the Zadig jackets.
At the other end of the price spectrum and an absolute steal, this jacket from another French retailer Not Madame, is great if you are after a lighter coloured option.
This comes in Petite as well if you don’t want such a longline option but has sold out in some sizes.
If the military style isn’t quite working for you, then try a bomber instead. Great with trousers and also over dresses and skirts, this one from another French brand comes in khaki, black, camel and cream. I love the lurex trim at the cuffs and neckline to add a little bit of glamour which makes this another versatile option you can wear into the evening.
