For years now I have been trying to start working on my so-called 'transitional wardrobe' – that selection of pieces you can wear in between seasons but also incorporate easily into your SS or FW looks. Last week I went on a bit of an on and offline shopping spree to make sure I was well equipped – so I actually own everything you see in the pictures above.
I started with a pair of black slim jeans because as much as I love my Acne ones they are way too old to look presentable anymore. Next on the list was a new denim jacket in a slim fit so I could wear it over a shirt but also under a blazer. I had been looking for the perfect green Oxford shirt for years and I also finally found it (I'm wearing it as I type). Once I had the green I decided I needed some more colour, which is why I chose a light bomber jacket in burgundy – also great for layering. And I was low on neutrals so I chose sneakers in an off-white/cream colour my (immense) shoe collection was really lacking.
Now I am ready to start buying key pieces for FW14, most of which I have eyed already. More on these soon!
