Shady Lady

It's not too early to start thinking about sunglasses, after all, you never know when the sun might surprise you with an unseasonably warm day and Spring is just around the corner. This year I'm delighted to add the Maui Jim Coco Palms Sunglasses in black to my collection. They're slightly square, a little bit like a wayfarer style, but with a subtle cat eye flip at the corners. I love this style and I can't wait for more sunny days...

I've also been experimenting a lot with layering things I'd never normally wear together. Long shirts or dresses under sweaters or over leggings and trousers, playing with lengths & textures and getting creative in an attempt to get more joy and wear out of what's already in my closet. I bought this sheer shirt dress from Matalan last year and I have worn it so much, either on it's own or layered over and under other pieces in my wardrobe. It was super affordable and it has more than paid for itself. There's nothing like the satisfaction of finding something on your shopping trip that you actually end up wearing all the time... It's such a win in day-to-day life. If you love the idea of a similar piece you play with when you're layering, be sure to check out the shopping options at the bottom of this post.
