E’s lookbook ‘Layer cake’

Lookbook:

Earrings DIYed

Blouse: TwoFourTwo

Trousers: Primark

Belt unknown

Sandals: Select

When I look at this image I think layer cake. Each colour is separated by the other going from the earrings to the sandals. The earrings are DIYed from a necklace that I did not like. The blouse I have altered to fit me better. And the belt in the trousers I have replaced with a more suitable one. It’s all in the detail.

It may be the last time I’m showing bare shoulders before the season of sweaters and jackets starts all over again. A simple outfit with 2 garments of clothing and barely-there sandals.

This is a bit autumnal look. The colours are not so vivid. The blouse served me well over the years, despite the statement sleeves, that are specific to a certain era, the blouse has this boho vibe that I like. Paired with trousers that were gifted and I find the colour challenging, but the fit is impeccable. White sandal as a homage to almost gone summer and statement earrings because I barely wear them.

Has anyone spotted yet my obsession with pairing green with pink this season? I just can’t help myself. I find it so fresh. This is another take on the theme. The blouse has some intricate stripes situation, but the main interest lies with the quite oversised necklace that I had for years now. I have kept everything else rather plain. The colour of the sandals matches one of the colours in the necklace. This is what I would be wearing if I was allowed outside.

I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.

So, I’m stuck at home. It’s pandemic out there and for the greater good, I have to stay home, so I’m doing. But if I was allowed outside that’s probably what I would be wearing. You have probably spotted a trend here: shorts cut out of trousers that I already have and not very often wear. This pair of trousers is made from quite thick fabric and the material didn’t fold nicely at the hem, so the trousers got hardly ever worn. But we do not like such items in our wardrobes, they have to perform or go or get altered. After some DIY I can wear shorts when it’s still warm but I’m also hoping to wear them with tights when it gets colder. Today I went all yellow, lighter with the top, and stronger with the accessories.

Ok, it’s all Primark look. I do find interesting pieces in this store. Most of their clothes are not so great, but some of which I have bought lasted me for years. This outfit is a bit DIYed. I was on a lookout for some decent length shorts for a while with no results. So, I have bought culottes in a summery, light material and light colour well knowing that I am not going to wear them that way, but going to shorten them to get the desired shorts. Also, the earrings started of completely gold, but I have painted them with a couple of coats of nail vanish in sagey colour. Sage goes well with pink, especially pale, also as the shorts are quite high-wasted, I have opted for the cropped version of a top, and it still hardly shows any stomach. Pink and sage accessories and the outfit is done.

Well, let’s be honest there is only so much you can do with a pair of trousers in summer weather. This look is more for the evening when the temperatures drop a little and you can actually bear a long sleeve. I do seem to like this particular shade of green as I do have a couple of things that go together. The same idea with sandals but these are more cream colour than stark white and a matching bracelet and pale gold earrings, as a necklace, in my opinion, would be too much.

As you can see the trousers are staying with me. Now I need to try to style them differently every time. So this time a little bit 50ties style with a white linen shirt tied at the waist, big, black shopper and flat, white sandals.

As the parched landscape behind me shows we are going through unbelievably hot weather. Hence the skirt and skimpy top and sandals. Even in the shade is hot. the skirt is an old goodie and the top was purchased last year but the cropped trend is still strong.
