Hot 'n' Cold

...written by Sherin

Last week, when I said that it'd finally gotten warm again in England, I lied. It immediatetly got cold again, and since then, the weather can't decide what it want. This makes dressing up and going out really really hard.

I wore the following outfit while meeting my friend for lunch. It was seriously one of those days where it was hot one minute and then cold the next. This called for a lot of layering, which, unfortunately, is a skill that I haven't mastered yet.

I'm wearing a Warehouse skirt (thrifted), H&M t-shirt, Sock Theory socks and locally bought shoes. I think long socks are made for this kind of weather, so I'm wearing them a lot. I also wore a coat on top of it all.


What do you all wear when the weather is being fickle?

Definitely with jeans/leggings,a cardigan,a light jacket and of course a scarf! Although we have lots of sunny days here, the nights are always very cold.

Love the skirt and it´s thrifted? ;)

It's rainning...rainning and rainning...and weather is colder too. Yesterday I wore...leggings and turtleneck with a floral chiffon tunic, denim jacket, cashmere pashmina oversize scarf, Nicholas Kirkwood Mary Janes and Chanel quilted back-pack. :)

Long socks over tights, that's a smart move!

I'd add another layer on top (cardigan? light jacket? pinafore-style overdress?) before the coat, and maaaaybe another pair of socks if the weather's super-changeable. In a contrasting or stand-out colour!

Cute outfit. You look ADORABLE!

Ugh, I know what you mean about the weather being horribly unpredictable. The same happens often here in the US midwest. In the spring and fall, I normally keep a denim jacket or black blazer in my car. That way, if it gets a little chilly, I have something that compliments whatever outfit I'm wearing.

You look sooo pretty Sherin! when I have fickle days I usually wear jeans... with a top and a jacket and my beloved converse. Because weather can be very crazy sometimes...

Ah, I love your H&M top, Sherin! Hmmm...when the weather is being fickle I tend to turn to cardigans, riding boots, leggings, and tunics!! :)

Harriet said...

cute, I just love those socks (I know I've said it before but it's still true!) This weather is so hard to dress for, especially when you have to add in the tube in rush hour as part of your commute, yuck!

WeShop said...

You look cute in this outfit. I'm wearing layers cos the office is boiling hot one minute and freezing cold (air con overload) the next! xx

When the weather is being fickle I want to wear an outfit just like this! I LOVE the stripes!

Kristin said...

I'll send you a shot of warm air...and you send me some cool. Deal?

E said...

I never know what the wear when the weather is crazy. I've been at a loss with this weird spring. Your ensemble works wonderfully.

MJ said...

I get so annoyed when I plan what to wear then look out of the window and it's all wrong! I just usually put whatever it is on anyway, haha!

Tasha said...

Sherin u look great! I really like ur hair like that! It's very flattering! the weather here has been similar with going back and fourth. One day its super hot and sunny and then the next day or even just hours later it's pouring rain and storming really bad. So its hard to know what to wear! Flip flops or any opened toed dress shoes are kind of risky at this point!

Savvy Gal said...

I adore stripe tops. very casual but still cute.

Lady Enigma said...

I am loving your striped top --how gorgeously simple and chic!!

I do love your skirt as well, and your purple 'plaid'? socks are darling! I wish I could pull them off as effortlessly as you do!

Cindy Whitehead said...
