Switzerland experienced one of the driest Novembers in history this year which left ski resorts in a bit of a panic. You see, no rain means no snow on the mountains… but, after a week of almost non-stop drizzle the alps are now covered in snow. Not a bad view to have from your roof, eh?
Lately I’m feeling rather anti-winter and as a result have decided to protest the cold by wearing sheer silk and cropped jeans instead of wooly jumpers. I’m desperately seeking a pair of slouchy soft boyfriend jeans that actually reach down to my ankles (they are all I want to wear right now).
Last night I returned home from a weekend spent in the Cotswolds. Without internet I felt refreshingly disconnected from the world despite being just a couple hours away from London. Being back in Zurich though feels equally peaceful. The pace of life here is so relaxed that it’s hard not to feel as though you’re on a permanent weekend away.
On a separate note, the dis-functionality of my wardrobe has become increasingly apparent. Alright, it might not be as bad as it was circa January 2010 when I did a little closet confession. But it’s still not good. I could likely list the items I wear regularly on two hands and as a result it’s time for another closet gutting (blog shop coming soon). Instead of having lots of items I rarely wear I’d rather invest in classics. This shirt is a perfect example. Although you can’ get any more basic than a white shirt this one has some special little features that make it truly covetable. Made from 100% silk, it has double slits at both sides plus is cut longer at the front and back. The thicker panelling across the chest creates a bit of contrast and added interest. I love the idea of having simple items that have a little twist. The fact that it’s made by new young British designers Louise Rhodes and Amy Moreton is the icing on top.
