I’m finally starting to feel myself emerge from the hellhole of winter (I felt the blues so badly this year!) into the first flush of spring. Last week I stopped wearing thermals under my jeans, I’ve been spritzing on the colognes (I’m back on the Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose) and the stripy tees have come out of storage. And this week I’ve noticed so many good, energising things on the new-in pages.
& Other Stories is brilliant at the moment – I tried on these red cat-eye sunglasses in store at the weekend and I didn’t want to take them off. Cat-eyes can be difficult to wear but these aren’t too retro and the pop of red is perfect if your default setting is black-navy-grey. (Yellow is also a surprisingly wearable colour for sunnies.)
& Other Stories is embracing the trend for Frenchy-phrased tees in a big way. These are quite fun and I also love this mock turtle tee. I find high turtle necks are too unkind to double chins, but a slightly high mock turtle is quite beatnik-y and sweet.
If you like print, & Other Stories has lots of colourful, whimsical print blouses and dresses, including retro cherries and florals. I like the cut of the silk shirts but I’m leaning more towards these graphic spots. The mac is a similar shape to an old COS one I have that always gets compliments and these sculptural earrings are lovely for a finishing touch if you’re still tentatively clinging to your all-black shrouds.
Finally, I’m loving this warm ochre yellow I keep seeing everywhere. I’m not sure if it goes with my skintone but if not, the trainers will work a treat.
