She & Him | A Saturday streetstyle afternoon in London.
What @jmgcreative and I wore…
Yesterday, we wrapped up warm to spend the day together in London town. I’m continuing on my mission to dig out pieces I rarely wear to style them differently. This is the second post I’ve done on reworking old items from my wardrobe. You can read the first here.
Back in summer 2012 I bought these amazing metallic copper WALTON flatform wedges from Topshop. They were about £50, I think.
Ways I’ve worn them in the last two years…

French girl style…
I wondered whether I could put an outfit together that would give these wonderful shoes another lease of life. After all, what’s the point of falling in love with something and only wearing it a handful of times?
I felt ‘a bit socks and sandals’ at first wearing them over pale gold wool tights, but after a while I enjoyed having the extra height of heels and all the comfort of a flatform wedge.
I added to the look another item in my wardrobe that I’ve only worn once to a posh evening do, which was this lush forest green faux fur stole. A Topshop bargain found in a jumble sale we had when I was at university for a couple of quid! The coloured faux fur complements the multi-tonal tapestry coat (bought in the Zara sale last summer) and adds a bit of extra texture too. I love a bit of layering.
I wore an old camel-coloured beret from Miss Selfridge, to add to, what I hoped could pass as, my ‘french girl’ style. My M. Hulot tan leather Prussia satchel, a pale gold button-front mini skirt from Topshop with khaki military shirt worn tucked into the waistband finished off the look.
We found this amazing street art covering a Barclays bank outside St Pancras station. It clashed brilliantly with my outfit.
What JMG wore:
- 10 Deep Grey hoodie
- Carhartt orchid pocket tshirt
- Vans Off The Wall box flannel shirt
- Fruitmachine x Boikzmoind red bobble hat
- New Balance 670 trainers
- Topman black skinny jeans
When in London, you can get away with wearing pretty much anything! Just one of the many reasons I love it here.
