Season change style hacks


Do you get to this time of year and look at your wardrobe and think OMG a wardrobe of clothes but nothing to wear.

You are not alone in this.  

With a return to routine - lets hope it’s a new and inspired one.  The clothes you lived in all summer suddenly don’t feel quite right.  I don’t know about you but I am never ready to snap into fall or winter looks.  Sweat my calves off in boots?  No thank you.   As for a coat I know I will be wearing it until April at least so what’s the hurry.  I like to keep the summer vibe alive for as long as a can.  Along with this the weather is so unpredicatable as the seasons change.  One minute it is drizzly and rainy the next bright sunshine.  

This is where layers and wardrobe essentials come into their own.  No need to hit the shops just yet - unless in the throws of getting organized you need to sort your wardrobe.  Check out my 5 step style update  

Here are some ideas to keep your favorites going - at least until the clocks change.

These pieces are all interchangeable - creating a capsule to help you power through your day.

(my top tip for denim shorts get a man in your life’s old pair or go the charity shop then get cutting)

Style Sara with chunky knit and denim

 Treat the shirt dress as a shirt with a knit (ganni) and jeans (your favourites) McQueen trainers.

Denim shorts and a chunky knit

Love a colourful chunky knit (Cara and the sky) keeps the short and flip flop vibe going that little longer
