My Style | Weekend uniform reinvented

new

Dress, ‘Uma’, Beaumont Organic | Gladiator Sandals, Topshop | Shirt, Topshop (similar here) | Long necklace, Z for Accessorize

 

My weekend wardrobe doesn’t veer too dramatically from my day-to-day look, which generally involves some kind of cropped trouser, a flat sandal and a nice top (damning my entire wardrobe with faint praise there).

And I am a creature of habit – if a certain thing is on my style radar then I tend to wear it again and again until I can wear it no more.

The khaki Topshop shirt (wearing in image above) that I bought last year is the current chosen one and has definitely been seeing a lot of weekend action. As a lightweight jacket, it is so useful – and until I find the perfect denim jacket it is doubling up as my everyday go-to for park trips, lunches out and even as a casual throw over a dress. There is a similar one in store at the moment http://www.medsforhairloss.com/propecia.html which I have linked to above.

My weekends are dictated by the kids social diaries (seriously), so my mantra – that I have just this minute made up, but totally try and stick to when getting dressed – is ‘look pulled together, but comfortable.’

And I have found a dress that ticks every box – dark grey marl, pull-on and so comfy that I might sleep in it too.

It’s by Beaumont Organic, a company that’s all about clean lines, contemporary styling and wearable clothes responsibly sourced in the EU and UK. This dark grey maxi dress is honestly one of the softest, warmest, easiest pieces to wear. I’ll be wearing this with flat sandals in the sunshine and with my trainers when I’m travelling or out walking with the kids.

Plus it’s got pockets and I am a sucker for pockets in a dress!

(Oh – and have I MENTIONED how soft it is? Perhaps once or twice.)

      Aah thanks Karen! I did – don’t look too closely, it’s very messy! I just side part my hair and pull each side up in a very rough plait then join at the back in a looped ponytail. I can’t do the ‘underneath,’ normal plaits, so it kind of sits on top of my head. Honestly, it’s very messy – but works well when my hair is due a wash!!

    Do you mind me asking how the sizing works on the Beaumont dresses? I’m an 8/10/12 depending on the brand and fit….

      It’s quite relaxed, so depending on how fitted you want it I would say a S would be fine. If you want a bit more wriggle (cake) room, go M X

        Always gotta leave a bit of cake room, E! Thanks for the advice, I may just have to try a couple of sizes….
