Last week, I shared my first post styling up the Sanderson for Uniqlo AW18 collection. I had such a great reaction to the post, particularly over on Instagram – I really feel we are kindred spirits in our shared love of seasonal, vintage-inspired florals, which makes me very happy indeed. I was excited to share the second look, so without further ado, here’s outfit number two…
For my second post, I wanted to style a more casual outfit for weekends spent exploring; in this case a spot of early Autumn foraging! This T-shirt was made for a golden Scottish country backdrop and, more importantly, is ideal as a trans-seasonal piece. The statement flared sleeves are effortlessly elegant on warmer days, but equally the tee could be layered up with a polo neck underneath when the weather gets cooler. I just adore the Arts and Crafts-inspired, rusty hued print – a little different from the bold, graphic florals Sanderson are usually known for, but still utterly timeless. It’s quite a boxy style so go for a smaller size if you’re on the petite size.
I styled the tee with this pair of beautiful vintage Laura Ashley corduroy culottes. Longterm readers will know how much I love cord at this time of year and these are the perfect bottle green, wide-legged culottes – they look like a high-waisted skirt from a distance. They were actually my Mum’s in the ’70s and she’s kept them all this time. How stylish is she?! It’s amazing how fashions come around as Uniqlo actually have a pair of similar culottes in their new collection! Heritage fabrics and patterns are rarely out of style, and I’m sure I’ll be wearing this pairing for many more Autumns to come.
What I’m wearing: T-shirt c/o Sanderson for Uniqlo; vintage culottes, vintage basket, bag and accessories; Ray-Ban sunglasses via Sunglasses Shop.
