Take Two: The Purple Trench

smart casual over 40

This trench, the shoes, the bag and the trousers were all part of  my capsule wardrobe for a 3-day trip to Barcelona (part 1 and part 2) a few weeks ago. However, I never wore the olive trousers and the trench together (although I had planned to do so).

So, I wanted to recreate the look for a Saturday afternoon in London a couple of weeks ago. Let's call this Travel Capsule Wardrobe Bonus Post, shall we?


I also wanted to see what the blue/green scarf would look like with the purple trench. I've worn the scarf with the same trench in blue (yes, bulk buying again,,,) before, and I wanted a bit more contrast here as far as the colours are concerned.

And I'm test-driving the necklace I bought in Barcelona. It was one of those impulse buys: see something, try it on, buy it, all in less than 5 minutes, without a clue of what to wear it with.
