I am feeling in the mood for clean and simple dressing at the moment. This season I intend to streamline my wardrobe. I plan to buy less and buy better, choosing items that will stand the test of time. Good quality basics that are adaptable. Pieces that work together, co-ordinate well and can be worn during the day then dressed up for the evening. The kind of clothes that pack easily and come out of the case ready to wear.
The trousers I am wearing have an elasticated waist and are at least five years old. You can’t go wrong with a good classic pair of trousers. This year if you prefer a warm colour palette there are many styles to choose from in brown, rust and beige. MarksandSpencer has a good selection and range of colours this season. I have a difficult figure for trousers with a small waist and wider hips. I find that some M&S straight-leg trousers fit me well.

My off white top is from Arket. It is made from Lyocell, an interesting lightweight, breathable and sustainable fabric. You can wear the top either loose as I am in the photo or tucked
