The day that this photograph was taken I went from a business meeting, to the shops for work, collected the children from school and then took them to tennis.
The look that I have gone for is daytime sequins with an injection of colour in the shoes and the handbag. I bought the skirt at Christmas time but hadn’t made use of it so decided that it needed an outing. I have dressed the skirt down by putting it with a denim shirt – this idea works with most luxurious fabrics such as lace, tweed, leather – and I have layered a vest underneath the shirt for warmth. I am also wearing thermal navy blue tights. After leaving my meeting I swapped my high shoes for Hobbs biker boots, which I had in my car.
The shirt is from Gap, the skirt from Coast, the shoes Hobbs NW3 and the red Miu Miu bag was a bargain in the Harvey Nichols sale about 8 years ago. The tights are from M&S.
