If I could live anywhere in the world, it would probably be London. Besides the heart-melting accents, indoor markets boasting 3D printed jewellery and the ability to get to Paris, or really anywhere in Europe, in under an hour; the London fashion scene is something that never, not EVER, fails to impress. So you can imagine that nothing pleases more than to wear the quintessential British high street brand that is Marks & Spencer…
Marks & Spencer nails what I like to call classic with a huge twist. Tailoring and classic shapes like this mac, combined with bold colours like mustard. These pieces can take you from an easy-to-get-dressed-in-the-morning monochrome look (for all the neutral-worshipping Melbournians at heart), to why-am-I-getting-stared-at-in-the-street look (my personal favourite). 😉 Of course, in London these looks would be perfectly normal, but for some reason my destiny was to live in the most monochrome city on Earth.
M&S are also known for their underwear range so I took advantage of this to finally invest in a chic, but simple, nude bra. I’m perpetually struggling to find any bra to match my pale coloured clothing, as I have a habit of choosing brightly coloured/printed/lacey/detailed/bejewelled bras (like everything else I buy) rather than ones that serve their purpose and DON’T show. The one I’m wearing in these outfits is actually called ‘almond’, which is a MUCH chic-er term than nude I have to say. I think we should all adopt the term almond, because if I’m wearing nude I don’t really want to look like I’m nude do I. I’d much rather look like a tasty and highly nutritious nut.
With fun colourful pieces, as well as plenty of neutrals, M&S embodies what I truly love about London – anything and everything goes!
