Taking the City lane

A few weeks back I headed up to the City for the Lord Mayor’s show and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take pics for my new post in different surroundings. London has got so many of those hidden gem locations to offer and I am about to embark on a journey to discover and feature as many of them as I can!

I have opted to wear this statement Double Faced Pink Apricot Wrap Coat by JAEGER. I love the warm peachy/pink hue juxtaposed against a sumptuous dove grey wool. This stunning coat is made of 100% wool and mid-length style design gives it a dramatic silhouette. What a fabulous way of injecting colour to your autumn wardrobe!

I bought the coat last year so it is no longer available in stores but still loving the way it feels and looks on!
I am very much into soft grey these days so I chose to accessorize my coat with this beautiful cashmere scarf by British heritage brand Johnstons of Elgin. The label has been creating the finest woolen and cashmere clothing and accessories since 1797 and this scarf is a timeless classic. Made from the most luxurious cashmere, it epitomises minimalist chic and is the perfect addition to any winter outfit!

I put the feminine elegance of the coat against Stella McCartney Zip-trimmed faux leather ankle boots for an unexpected shot of glamour and edge. I love black ankle booties because they are so easy to wear with any assemble. I picked the pair from Outnet some time ago but I still receive so many complements on how lovely they look on. I particularly like the gold zip fastening at the back and almond toe and gold sole.

 Gerard Darel is another bag designer I absolutely adore. This Bahia Simple Bag is essentially every woman’s minimalist dream. As the name indicates, the simple bag completely eradicates all the unnecessary design elements imposed upon most of the ‘it bag’. It comes in the most chic and cool of colours with an added timeless feel to it. I love the black leather exterior with the luxury burgundy suede inside. What I find wonderful about it is that it literally holds all my essentials and you still have plenty of room left, perfect for the fast paced ‘tote fan’! The leather has got a slightly rough look but it is unbelievably smooth which adds to its striking character.

10 Crosby Derek Lam leather shorts and Gerard Darel Bahia Simple Bag

I have opted to feature today these urban cool 10 Crosby Derek Lam belted mini leather shorts in black and burgundy. I really like the ribbon tie waist, side slashed pockets and contrast colour blocking. The back shows off lovely elastic back waist and the A-shape line brings out a flattering cut.

As black and white are still ruling the outfits of the day-wear this season, I went for this Zara monochrome crepe top to finish off the look. This blouse is so cool and versatile, you can wear it with pretty much everything as it oozes understated luxury and nonchalance. I love crepe for its matt finish, fluid drape and resistance to creases.

A pair of sandals, neat clutch and off you go, I chose my favourite pair of Alexander Wang Masha double strap slide heels already featured in my earlier posts.
