Softly does it – cashmere, cable knit and tweeds in pale shades of grey, blue and taupe


I’m conscious that a lot of my outfits have been pretty much head to toe black of late, so today I lightened up a little. There’s still not much colour going on, more a palette of pale blues, greys and taupe.

I didn’t manage to get around to wearing this tweed Hobbs blazer much last winter, so as it’s not too cold at the moment, I thought that it would work fine to my quick whizz into town to do some Christmas shopping. It also allowed me to revert to my default outfit of jeans/denim shirt/grey cashmere jumper, which was a nice change from sequins. Although I fear that they will be making an appearance again very soon….

Outfit: Hobbs blazer, La Redoute cashmere jumper, New Look denim shirt, Gap jeans, Zara boots, Mulberry bag, Gap hat.

      Thanks Catherine. I much preferred it worn this way than one way I tried last year – which made it look a bit to country bumpkin/tally ho ish, which is fine but not if you don't actually live in the country!
