Weekend Blues with Bonmarché
Once again I'm pleased to be collaborating with UK retailer Bonmarché. Seeing as though I'm not long off of a long-haul flight, the timing couldn't be better for the subject matter at hand. Bonmarché was kind enough to send me a few pieces from their Own the Weekend collection, and they arrived at a perfect time. We are experiencing a bit of a late warm spell here in Scotland, and that combined with having a bit of jet lag makes me want to reach for anything casual that is tried and tested in the comfort department.
There is no better way to do that than with loose, drapey layers; they add dimension to a look, provide warmth when needed, and expand a weekend getaway capsule wardrobe kill nobody's business. In this post, I've created two slightly different weekend looks with their Stripe Wide Leg belted Trousers, and their Stitch Interest Cardigan. I chose to go with a palette of blues because when you have to pack a capsule wardrobe, even for something as simple as a casual weekend getaway, making an obvious choice and just going with it makes things a whole lot easier. These two key pieces really act as anchors, enabling me to create multiple looks out of very little.
Here's the best part. Bonmarché is currently running a competition in which you can win a weekend getaway to London and a luxury train journey, and a perfect weekend wardrobe worth up to #150.
Sorry fellow Americans, this competition is for UK residents only.
