Mid month. The time where nothing looks fabulous and you honestly don't know what to wear. That simple trip to collect your meat and two veg is fast becoming the arch nemesis of your week and pay day a few centimetres too far.
So you sit there in your jeans and dressing gown, teeth gnashing against a few slices of cold toast as you contemplate throwing on a tarpaulin-esque anorak. Looked great October, your mind automatically clicks next on its style database and inevitably the waterproof monstrosity hits the floordrobe.
Wardrobe refreshers are key for quick fixing wardrobe malfunctions. That sleeveless dress you put to the side for summer, the midi catching dust on the back rail and not to forget the espadrilles still in their box underneath the midi.
Food for thought. Just work out the right combinations to turn” just another manic Monday" into "I can't wait, for the weekend to begin".

A colourful scarf can easily take the dark shadow off a boring piece and bring life and 'jazz' to any outfit. Doesn't match? You'd be surprised what a bright scarf goes with!

Leather jacket, easy to 'szujh' up any outfit, necessity wear with a pair of fabulous jeans or try with a gorgeous evening ensemble.

Whether it's giving your outfit that special 'je ne sais...whatever' or hiding your less than chic hack of a hairdo, a fedora has got kooky eccentric hobo-boho written all over it. Maxi's and midi's love this, if you’re jetting off anywhere nice, so does that two piece.

Let's face it, it's seen better days. But in this mid-month rut can we risk losing a piece that, yes has been around the block a few times but looks great still fits after Christmas and can potentially look as amazing as the above? 90's or not, do it with shorts, skinnies, pencil skirt for the office, world is your oyster on this one, shirts are doing it. So take it out of the black bag, to a dry cleaner and show it some respect by putting it back on the glorified wooden hanger next to some other favourites. Incorporate and renew.
