Lockdown Wardrobe Staples

Affiliate links marked with a *

As well as sharing what I've been wearing this week I thought I'd tell you about a couple of my hero pieces throughout lockdown. Both items have exceeded the #30wears mark. They haven't featured in any of my posts even though they have been worn on a daily basis recently for dog walks and weekly supermarket trips! No jacket required this past week though......it's been scorching hasn't it?! The humble shacket has always been one of my go-to jackets but it has held the number one spot for the past couple of months. It's so good that I have more than one version of this style of jacket......I've been alternating between two. Both of them are past season from Topshop. I have a lightweight one which is great for over dresses, t-shirts and shirts. I've also been wearing a slightly heavier duty army style one, which is oversized and better for accommodating layers, bulkier knits and sweatshirts.

Topshop shacket, past season - nearest I could find is this one* (I would personally remove the belt)

Lockdown Life

Sorry.....it's been a while. In truth I've been enjoying this slower pace of life a little bit too much. I certainly aim to adopt some of my lockdown habits even when life starts to get back to some degree of normality. All those little jobs I promised myself I'd do have been done and I've got through my TV watchlist. I've got through books that have lain idle on my Kindle since my last holiday. I've a new found passion for cooking. I'm drinking a ton of water (instead of copious amounts of builder's tea) and I'm doing Yoga on a daily basis too! I think I may have even cracked my social media habit once and for all. I've had the odd down day.....mainly when I couldn't sit outdoors but on the whole I've really embraced this downtime. How have you been finding it? Hope you are all ok.

I actually mustered up the motivation to blog this week. I've still been scouring Pinterest for lockdown outfit ideas....... as well as recipe ideas and ways in which to improve my outdoor space. I thought I'd share a few of the things that are keeping me occupied at the moment.

First of all a style steal.......courtesy of Pinterest of course!
