The Style Post: Spring to Summer Transitions

I have a confession for you all today, I have worn the above black A-line top from Cos at least twice a week since its purchase back in April. I picked it up in the sale for a wee £25 and haven’t looked back. It’s the perfect transitional piece from spring to summer as it’s light weight but still keeps me snug as an all black outfit attracts sunlight.

Paired with my Topshop bowler hat that has barely left my head (it’s featured in my past two videos – as has the top) and black boots of choice, I do run the risk of looking a little satanic. I joke, but just to make sure the outfit has a little pop of colour I’ve been lugging my possessions around in my most recent Zara handbag purchase (the perfect summer bag!) and sporting Topshop Gone Fishing nail polish.

For accessories, I’ve been getting a lot of use out of my Urban Outfitters sunglasses and River Island rings. The rings have not left my fingers as they complement almost any nail polish and just look rather cute!

So come rain or shine, these items are my “go to’s” that don’t leave me feeling out of place or inappropriately dressed. I’m also wearing the majority of them today – surprise, surprise… Style Posts could start getting a tad predictable over here if I’m not careful!
