Although it is arctic outside, in fact zero degrees today, I am now shopping for pieces that will transition easily into spring. So when browsing the River Island website I selected pieces that I can wear now and will be able to wear throughout the transition season. I have to be honest with you, when shopping I am not always so keen to shop entirely for lockdown living, so the pieces I choose need to work in lockdown but they need to serve me beyond lockdown too.
The dogtooth cardigan is a brilliant work from home item, it’s super soft and can be thrown over a t-shirt. But outside of lockdown I can wear it with jeans and heels and wear it in an effortless glam kind of way. The boxy coat I absolutely love for lockdown strolls and when I say strolls, I mean exactly that! Not hikes or walks down dirt roads and through woodlands, but nice leisurely strolls to the supermarket and maybe to pick up coffee. You can be wearing literally anything beneath this coat and it wouldn’t matter, this coat is so sharp and classic, it can elevate just about any look and it’s a coat I will wear for years and years.
For Allegra on the other hand, she goes through clothes like no tomorrow, so I went for pieces that are comfortable for her to wear at home around the house and that will keep her warm on visits to the park. The lilac cardigan I just couldn’t pass up for Allegra – if it came in my size I totally would have got one too!
I have got my eye on a few more pieces that I have also included in the edit, the denim selection at River Island is impressive and they have been nailing their denim jackets for a good few seasons now. I’m excited for the weather to warm up so I can add a few of their elevated denim jackets into both mine and Allegra’s collection.
Here’s the edit ladies, I hope you enjoy! x
