Cashmere cardigan – Gap. Cords – Gap. Heels – ASOS (US). White off-shoulder top – Stylenanda (similar). Bag – Mansur Gavriel. Scarf – Zara. Watch – Guess. Thank you Kit for the help snapping!

Unintentional dressed-by-mummy look again, cords and sensible knits and all. I guess I shouldn’t deny that I’m becoming more like her everyday… I mean, ever since I cut my hair I’ve been waking up to two-kids-and-a-mortgage hair each morning (styled by pillow, who I need to fire soon) and I’m gradually finding more uses the mop other than just for cleaning. For now it may be broomstick acrobatics to open the skylight window and balancing dried anchovies over to the stray cat across the roof, but I’ll be mop-wielding tiger-mum soon enough, I’m sure. (This blog may become Park & tiger cub then, I fear, pursue at your own risk.) The weather in London is still going through the usual mid-season identity crisis, and thankfully occasionally it still lingers on the summer end just long enough for me to get by with a shirt and a slouchy pair of cords from Gap + a reserve cashmere cardigan in the bag for colder moments. I love me a good coat but as long as the ENTIRE WORLD and their mothers continue to flood central London in the middle of the day (seriously, what’s causing this?) I’m happy with simple layers to darting between meetings less arduous. Happy weekend, all!

Part two of styling series with Gap‘s Styld.by platform. Part one here!

  1. I have to fire my pillow soon too. It’s doing a very bad job, especially when my hair needs to look good and I don’t have time to fix the mess :p
    Those gorgeous boyfriend cords are to die for!

    It totally works for me. I know your hair is shorter now, but give it a try :)

    I had the same scarf on my hands a week ago, it just perfect coziness.
    You might be the only person wearing cords these days…it reminds me of my childhood. Love it!

  22. This look is incredible! I love the relaxed look and the feminine, chic touches of nails and heels and watches. Speaking of the weather, I can’t believe it’s still in the double digits there? I will be moving there in 2 weeks and I just hoping, so hoping, that it will be just a bit mild for some of us southern American state girls. Have a great weekend!

  28. Your outfit, whether intentional or not, reminds me of the late 80s and early 90s fashion. (Yup, I’m aging myself here). I used to wear men’s cords from Gap and rolled them up like you. And those bucket bags were pretty popular. It’s funny how cyclical fashion is!
