The mornings are cold now inLondon with a real nip in the air, but come mid-morning and the sun (long may it last) is shining and the temperature picks up.  It’s the perfect weather for scarves, which is lucky because this year there seems to be a bumper crop of styles and styling options…there’s the classic navy, a timeless wardrobe staple. Safety has it’s chic place..

Belting up..

IMG_4071The Emma belt by Thomas Pink

In the ebb and flow of life, the Belt seems to have all but disappeared.  A bit like hats.  I first saw this one in the window of a shop when Christmas shopping and it stopped me in my tracks. I managed to restrain the desire of buying there and then (just) in the hope it would be in the Sale – and it was, reduced from £49.00 to £29.00 which really is a paltry sum for such a peacock piece – You certainly can’t wear it with your hands folded in your lap.

I want to wear it with a loose silk shirt dress in a dark navy blue.  But it’ll work with most staples, taking them on multiple journeys (such a win win).

Pieces like this are so important: Mixing opposites, crafting wrong combinations to create something right..they shouldn’t be ignored.

So I say long live the belt!
