Lazy Sunday jumper dress day

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Sundays are the day for relaxed lunches in town, a bit of window shopping, catching up with friends or walks in the park (weather permitting). I love my stripey,  woolen jumper dress I bought years ago at GAP. It’s comfy and can be worn up or down.  Down with cowboy ankle boots and a leather jacket, or up with pointy heels and a longer coat.

My favourite London girl Alexa Chung in a stripey breton dress and model Karen Elson both combine black tights and heels with their cute stripey jumper dresses.

I’m wearing a stripey jumper dress from Gap, brown waist belt by Stefanel,  woolen cable knit tights from Kunert, tan ankle boots and leather jacket from Massimo Dutti.

1 Leather jacket, 3 outfits

Blazer / Jackets/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Last year I  bought a leather jacket from Massimo Dutti and while I wasn’t sure at first whether it fits my style (I prefered blazer and cardigans), I’m so glad I did! A leather jacket can be virutally worn with any and everything and you can style it romantic or rocky, the choice is yours!

Adding a splash of colour, it’s spring after all! Corderouy pencil skirt from Stefanel, opaque tights from Wolford, shoes Pretty Ballerina, marine shirt from Esprit and sunglasses from Chloe.

Same jacket, another gorgeous spring day in Wimbledon: Pleated wool skirt from Stefanel, ankle boots from Goertz, jumper from Antoni & Alison.

Soaking up the first  rays of the year in Richmond in Pepita Capri trousers and a bright yellow cotton jumper. Woven handbag: Falorni.

Romance meets leather jacket

Blazer / Jackets/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

As you might have noticed, I do love romantic fashion and frills, flowers, pink colours, and everything girly you can think of! To not get stuck in a style rut though, I decided to try wearing a leather jacket, something I have never owned before. The Leather Jacket is also one of the 7 basics described in Ines de la Fressange’s style guide “Parisian Chic” so I thought I needed to give it a go. Ines advises combining the jacket with a flowery dress (to avoid the garden party look). In the pics above she models the jacket with another one of her basics, the white jeans. I also love the combination with a white frilly blouse as seen on the Vogue cover worn by Ines.

To not look like a biker’s girlfriend, I only ever wear it combined with a bright coloured top or dainty skirts. I must admit I do not wear it often and still prefer a blazer or cardigan. I might just need some more time to get used to it!

Wie Euch warscheinlich schon aufgefallen ist, liebe ich romantische Mode, mit Rueschen, Blumen, rosa Farben und allem maedchenhaften, das es gibt. Um nicht immer den ewig gleichen Stil zu tragen hatte ich mich entschieden, eine Lederjacke zu kaufen, ich hatte noch nie vorher eine besessen! Die Lederjacke ist eines von 7 basics beschrieben im Pariser Style Guide Buch von Ines de la Fressange, also dachte ich, probier es mal aus. Ines empfiehlt eine Lederjacke zu einem mille fleur Kleid zu tragen, um den “Garden Party” Look zu vermeiden. Auf dem Foto oben modellt sie die Jacke mit einem der 7 basics aus ihrem Buch – der weissen Jeans. Ich liebe auch den Look vom Vogue cover – schwarze Biker Lederjacke kombiniert mit weisser Fransenbluse.

Um nicht auszusehen, wie eine Rockerbraut, trage ich die Lederjacke nur mit hellen Farben und fliessenden Roecken. Ich muss zugeben, ich habe sie noch nicht sehr oft getragen und entscheide mich meist fuer einen Blazer oder eine Strickjacke. Was meint ihr?
