Cafe Au Lait

FMN | Coffee & Cream  - 4

In need of a pick-me-up to get me out of bed in the morning after coming home from the Balearics, I found myself reaching for creamy, coffee-coloured goodness both in the kitchen and in my wardrobe.

Anything with that Pirate neckline is an instant win with me, and as soon as I saw this Asos (yes really) sweater, I knew I had to have it. Just like that morning brew, it takes the edge off chillier mornings and within a few days, you find yourself reaching for it on autopilot and don’t know what you’d do without it. Just a head’s up, I’m normally a U.K size 8 in Asos but bought this in a size 12 to get a slightly roomier fit and it’s perfect for me. I’d suggest ordering a couple of sizes up from your usual to save it from being too clingy…

The seventies has always been my favourite decade in terms of style (hotly contended by the nineties), and there’s no point pretending this doesn’t has more than a few Farrah Fawcett vibes. I wish I could say it was deliberate, but alas this particular out and proud throwback seemingly happened through osmosis, and it was only when looking back at these shots that I realised how committed I am to the decade that gave us Jilly Cooper novels, festivals and the prawn cocktail. I guess if you buy enough buttery suede, gold hoops and ribbed knitwear, sooner or later you’ll end up leaving the house like the love child of Penny Lane and Ken ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson.

Nothing like getting dressed in the morning to discover where your allegiances lie…
