Let’s talk mixing summer and autumn pieces for a chic outfit idea. Combine with a classic blazer and this street style look is ready for work or every day. Plus, where to snatch up some of these pieces on sale this week.
REFORMATION LINEN IS MY TOP PICK FROM THE SUSTAINABLE BRAND
Today, I basically looked for an excuse to share this outfit mainly to point out that the super cute puff sleeve top I am wearing is on sale. It’s one of the linen pieces I’ve been repeating from Reformation. Actually, to be honest, though I am yet to try their denim or knit ranges, I prefer the linen collections above all else from Reformation. The quality is just so impressive and the styles clearly super cute and wearable.
Here is the 411 on linen, taken from the Reformation website.
Linen is made from flax, and is one of the best fabrics out there and has been for ages. It is strong, breezy, anti-bacterial, and oh so gentle to your skin and the planet. Linen uses basically no water, and emits ¼ of the carbon as cotton per pound of fiber. As an extra plus, most of our linen is made in mills that are Oeko-Tex 100 certified.
I’ve reviewed Reformation dresses before, see the post here if you missed it. Linen is certainly one of those warm day textiles. Here, I wanted to style it in a summer-meets-autumn chic look. Essentially, perfect for our weather here and for those of you in the thick of Fall-Autumn. Shop Reformation on sale here.
A CHIC SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFIT IDEA
Over here it’s been everything from rainy, grey and honestly, cold to 36 degrees from one day to the next. What gives? Global warming, as always. No doubt this is also why I dress transeasonally about sixty percent of the year. Of course, I reserve my carefree slightly more colourful, more bohemian side for summer. The rest of the time, I’m still aiming for chic, even if at times it borderlines casual-chic.
I paired the linen crop with my classic black capsule pieces like the blazer from Anine Bing, a mini Furla shoulder bag and a pair of Isabel Marant pumps. Heads up, at the moment all of the Furla bags on Shopbop are on sale too. I love any bag that has a chic shoulder strap detail! Oh and these Superdown high-waisted pants which are surprisingly chic. I’d pegged them as casual pant alternatives to jeans but they are actually pretty office to event friendly. I’m still a bit into the safari meets-utilitarian trend, can you tell?!
THE SHOPBOP SURPRISE SALE
While I am on the topic, Shopbop is having a four-day surprise sale and there are some GEMS up to 40% off.
Last night I was trying to make a sale order and had a bit of trouble processing the payment. So, I rang the international helpline and talked through it with the operator who helped me fix the issue. Actually, she tried to process the sale for me which was so helpful. I just thought I’d make mention since it can feel so faceless shopping online internationally. Though I am not sure which city the call center is based in, I wasn’t kept on hold for more than a minute and the customer service operator was really helpful.
