5 Piece French Wardrobe Update

My quest for both a 333 and a 5 piece french wardrobe this year was complicated by the fact that my work required me to start wearing only black, white and grey.

This led to a little bit of scrambling to find enough everyday basics in this monochrome palette to see me through the winter, but I did also manage to score myself a beautiful Navy Cashmere pullover from Christensen Copenhagen that is both casual and luxurious. It has buttons down the back, and I love that I can wear it as either as a pullover or back to front as a slouchy but tidy cardigan.

My pieces this year were:

Grey Skinny Jeans from Citizens of Humanity (similar)
Grey Cotton Cashmere Maxi Dress from Majestic Filatures (similar)
Black Cotton Cashmere Pencil Skirt from Majestic Filatures
Grey Cotton Pencil Skirt from Majestic Filatures
Black Silk Kaftan Top from Morrison
Black Silk Kaftan Dress from Morrison
Navy Cashmere Pullover from Not Shy
Black Alberto Fasciani Booties (similar)
Homespun Cabled Pullover from Muji
White Silk Blouse from Oxford

Also bought: a Navy Tote from Oroton and new Sunglasses

I didn’t tick much of my list from last season, so am still on the look out for some key pieces for next year.

Still Hunting for:

The Perfect White Button Down Shirt
A Silk Slip Dress
Brown High Heeled Oxford Brogues
Neutral Ballet Flats (I always buy my ballet flats from Sambag)
A Light Coloured Cashmere Pullover
A Light Coloured Trenchcoat
A Dressy Winter Coat
A Wool Peacoat (possibly in a bright, unexpected colour)
A Navy Puffer Jacket with a trim silhouette

A new forever bag – to replace my much loved but now broken box style mini handbag by Fossil.
A luxe pocketbook style zipped wallet
