JUMPSUIT I bought the slightly longer legged version of this minimal jumpsuit last year from ASOS and have worn it to death. It’s comfy, never fails to make me feel a bit cooler (even when I’m feeling anything but) and is forgiving – in the sense that you can eat while wearing it. I am so tempted to get this shorter version too…
JIGSAW Travelling well is an art. I always make sure I have a big scarf packed away in my hand luggage for all eventualities – cold aeroplane, blanket for sleepy children, wrap to layer up summery pieces – you name it. This simple style from Jigsaw is a gorgeous, go-with-everything grey but with the happy addition of a row of pom poms.
J CREW The khaki shirt I bought two years ago from Topshop has served me well. Very, very well. Especially during warmer days when I wear it over everything (especially the minimal jumpsuit) as a jacket. This heavier weight number is much more of a jacket – but would also make the perfect travel companion – easy to fold up, works with everything, in a practical fabric. Plus, that colour will never be out of style.
LEOPARD I love this bag. Pretty sure my leopard collection will continue to grow because it’s such a winning print – particularly on a handbag. I still often use another Boden leopard ponyskin number, but the back has worn where it has rubbed against coats and jumpers. Not that it stops me. This is from their new-in collection and the classic tan and leopard combination will go with everything.
