Coats and jackets take up quite a bit of space in the suitcase, so I always try to find the one perfect cover-up that would work with anything and in every situation. So, on a recent 3-day trip to London, I set myself a little challenge: to create 3 different looks based on my old, black Karen Millen leather jacket (you may remember it from a few weeks ago, when I wore it with a leopard print dress).
|jacket: Karen Millen (old) / top: Banana republic / shoes: Clarks / bag: Micheal Kors|
LOOK 1: a Casual Dinner / Night Out
A sophisticated wrap top and a statement necklace, straight-cut brown trousers and shoes, and a small bag. A pink pashmina adds a pop of colour.
|bag: Armani Exchange (old) / pashmina: Balmuir / T-shirt: Custo Barcelona|
LOOK 2: Travel outfit
This is my travel outfit: a long sleeved T-shirt and the same trousers as above (this time in grey) and shoes (in black), a medium-sized bag.
|top: Banana Republic / sunglasses: Chanel (old)|
LOOK 3: Weekend Casual
Breton stripes and modern jewellery equals urban chic
|pendant: “Space Apple” by Björn Weckström for Lapponia / ring: Femme d’Esprit|
The silver and acrylic pendant was a gift from my husband. It is a limited edition piece (designed in 1975) from the Björn Weckström 50th anniversary collection showcasing the designer’s space inspired pieces for Lapponia Jewelry.
So, which one is your favourite look?
PS: Dilettante Artist has her own blog now, The Dilettante Artist’s Gallery, where I will be posting (very infrequently) random pictures: illustration, photomanipulation, that sort of thing. And there is a pretty new widget on the sidebar to take you there…
