That After-Summer Style Crisis | Fashion
Pre-Summer is the time that everyone is excited for new clothing, hotter days (okay, maybe not so hot), and lighter nights. Meaning that in your head it feels like the days are oh so much longer and you can squeeze in that lil’ bit extra to your day. Whether it be the gym, more work or that glass *cough bottle* of red that you love, it’s just totally one of the best times of year. So, after some much needed fun, and as the Autumn/Winter season starts to roll round, you’ll catch yourself thinkin’ ‘WHERE THE HELL HAS SUMMER GONE’. And en cue comes that after-Summer style crisis where you’ve drank too much, have no appropriate clothing for the next few months and you’re constantly googling if you’ve got Seasonal affective disorder. Because feeling sad as a new season comes around is totally normal, trust us, Google it.
Along with those pangs of despair you’re now gettin’, you may find yourself staring into your wardrobe and wondering what the F to wear. After all transitional styling can be mega hard. Those flimsy clothes ain’t cuttin’ it but you can’t bash out your thick sweaters and knee high boots just yet. The big question on everybody’s lips …what do you actually friggin’ wear?
Usually every year I’d find this a proper easy task, however, once I piled back on a lil’ bit of chub from my holiday to Santorini I’d come to a point in my personal styling where certain trends were just not lookin’ right. So, when the amazing US brand, Tobi, asked me to collaborate I pretty much jumped like a giddy five year old, because I was obsessed with this oversized striped shirt. See below for a few snapshots on just how I styled this piece and not only can I throw this on for the transitional period, but for a long time after too. Because shirts are totally for the win and especially this one.
Comfy yet totally on trend for pre A/W 17.
For your information I am ridiculously OBSESSED with this bag. So, if it features in another 5 blog posts and 25,000 instagram shots, then just accept it, right? Theres a link to this beaut, at the end of this post.
