Want to be a Chloe Girl?

b77a7e3e6c52c70bbdbf3523292d3b9a-1Why, yes. I absolutely do, thank you very much. Unfortunately, I currently lack the long golden limbs and the budget. (Do you like the way I write ‘currently’ as if this might magically change?) Still, I can lust from afar. The lace dresses. The denim. That bag (truly an object of beauty). And I can do a spot of high-street copy-cat-ing…

I’d start with this dress from Topshop (if the budget can be stretched, you could try this beautiful lace panel frock). This laser-cut skirt would also work beautifully. For now, I’d throw a jumper over it (let us not be unrealistic, I am writing this in front of the fire. Warm it is not.) Alex popped over for coffee (and these – which are, quite frankly, my food find of the year) last Friday, wearing this jumper with her faux leather leggings (from this post) – and very fabulous she looked, too. Or opt for cashmere (size up for the slouchy Chloe factor). Then in the summer,  swap it for bare legs and sandals (I have taken delivery these in rose gold metallic).

And then there’s the denim look. I am warming to the idea of dungarees. Slowly. Topshop have a splendid pair which I would prettify with a white blouse – this one for instance, or this one. These backless dungarees are also very cute indeed; and these high waisted jeans have just the right mix of 70s vibe and sailor chic (I love the buttons).

A denim dress is possibly the easiest way to buy into the denim trend, ever. Simply throw it on and go (to work, the school run, the playground, to meet friends… It just works).  I like the dark denim of this. Or try a button-front denim skirt with a pretty top tucked in.

I regret that I cannot procure ‘that’ Chloe bag, but there are some excellent saddle bags available on a high street near you…

    Not only have you found me the perfect Chloe lookalikes, but you have also tempted me with those Waitrose pastries…….I have a feeling they may be purchased first! x
