Cardigan unknown

Top: Luxzuz

Jeans: Primark

Belt: Primark

Trainers: Primark

A lacy, pale yellow top worn with pale green cardigan, paper bag waist pale bluedenim, tan belt and trainers.

It felt better than it looks.

Another take on pastels. Plain colours but all with different textures. Knitt, lace and denim. Hugely comfortable, vastly wearable and casual. I have swapped the belt for another one that picks up on the colour of the trainers

E’s lookbook ‘New favourite combination’

Jumper: Next

Blouse- vintage

Long shorts: Primark

Boots: Dune

A navy blue bobble cardigan worn with warm brown buttoned-up blouse, navy blue long shorts, brown long boots and a vintage belt.

Altering clothes does pay off.

Altering clothes does pay off. As I have mentioned before the pair of the long shorts used to be just a pair of ill-fitted trousers. But after some crafty alterations, it became shorts that I actually look forward to wearing. They are in my favourite colour- navy blue. Personally I think blondes look better in that colour as supposed to ever-existing black. The cardigan is also navy blue. Navy blue with shades of brown creates a very classical combination that I intend to reuse over and over again. I hope the addition of the vintage belt makes it more ornated.

Belt vintage

Boots: Primark

I always do the same colour combination every Autumn. There is something so classic about navy blue/ blue and tan that I can not resist. Something new: the coat, something vintage: the belt and mostly old: the rest. Very happy with the outcome.

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.

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.

E’s lookbook ‘Stripy jumpsuit’

Lookbook:

Jumpsuit: Primark

Belt: Primark

Bracelet unknown

Sports bra: Primark

Sandals: Primark

A prime example of an outfit that just will not photograph well. Unfortunately, it looks a bit like stripy pyjamas but in fact is very comfortable even though out of my comfort zone. The jumpsuit does the whole talking so I have paired it with a plain sports bra and very minimalistic sandals in the colour of one of the stripes. The skinny, red belt also mimics one of the stripes so it ties it all together with the red bracelet. Its basically all stripes, vertical, horizontal, across, fat and skinny.

Fashion should be fun. And the colour is not reserved only for summer. When I saw this jumpsuit in a charity shop it screamed to me: summer, but to make the most of your wardrobe it’s good to try to make summer clothes work in different seasons to. This is my attempt to make it work in early spring. The jewel colours are perfect for this time of year. And since I already have plenty of colour why not to throw a bit of sparkle too, for good measures, it’s good not to play it safe sometimes, after all, it’s only clothes.

Coat: Primark

Dress: Store twenty one

Belt unknown

Leggings unknown

Boots: Primark

I think when trying to wear a mini dress with leggings but not to look too old fashioned is to wear it with shiny leggings. this pair I got of e-bay and it cost me around £5. Together with leather booties, it has a very modern, tough look. The belt is from patent leather and the coat is a wrap-up type.

I have bought these wide-leg trousers on sale from Primark, they have a very vintage vibe for me, a bit of 70-ties a bit of 40-ties look. Hope to wear them all winter. Like them with a skinny, vintage belt.

I’m obviously obsessed with grey at the moment. Since I got these trousers I’m trying to put them with different combinations. This time a light, black shirt, as it’s still quite warm, black Vans and the belt that makes the outfit, it’s too long, so you obviously have to let it hang.
