That is an outfit that instantaneously made me feel cool
and I am not referring to the colour palette. The top in a very pale lavender colour buttoned up with a small peplum is another charity shop acquisition. The colour and cut are extremely flattering. The same can be said about denim. another random charity shop purchase. Because of the crop, the trousers remain relatively cool even in high temperatures. Some accessories for more interest and brogues for some comfort.
That is exactly what I thought when I saw them in the shop. Lined, washable with actually not bad pearl accent buttons, well cut and flattering, I am immensely impressed especially that they came from Primark.
For a while, I was also on a hunt for a cropped white jumper. Most jumpers nowadays seem to be oversized or end mid-hip, the worst possible place which makes you look short and boxy. But eventually, I have found one that will go with everything high waisted that I possed.
The boots are old but unusual. Loosely woven and almost summery. The earring and the bracelets have obviously pearls theme to match the buttons.
That was my Christmas outfit since Christmas was cancelled and we were just staying home.
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.
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.
A wild card outfit. I got these trousers in the sale. With the current situation, you can not try anything in the fitting rooms, so they had to come home with me. To be honest, after trying them on I was not blown away but they are growing on me. The test is to be able to think of at least 3 outfits featuring them and I am going to post them as I go along. Probably it’s only a flash in the pan trend, on the other hand, floral prints do come back summer after summer and pink is a prominent colour in my wardrobe, Time will show. I’m styling it with a vest in one of the colours from the mix and of course white trainers. Don’t have any decent pink earrings so a bracelet will do.
Another relict dug out from my wardrobe. A fabulous angora cardigan in a rich fuchsia colour that actually suits my complexion now that I have some colour. I have paired it with my fav navy blue and some white accents including white trainers in which I live this summer.
This top was someone’s sweat and tears, not that not all clothes are made this way. This top was hand made by someone and then abandoned and then found by me and quite adored actually. It is that colour blue that suits most people and its cropped, so its perfect for hotter days. I’m wearing it with similar blue jeans and some pink as a statement colour as there is pink in the pattern.
