The core of the outfit is the same as in the previous entry but I have changed the scarf and the coat and it has a completely different feel to it. Charity shops are good for picking up inexpensive little accessories like silk scarfs to zhuzh up outfits. Also, the boots were in the sale for about £7, they are not typically winter boots and I can wear them for the next 10 months whenever there is cold rainy weather. Also, I’m still amazed by the colour of the coat going with most of the colours in my wordrobe.
Winter is dreary and we tend to wear the same boring colour and save the fun colours for summer. That’s why it’s good sometimes especially when the sun is out to spice it up a bit. The camera washes out the intensity of the colour of the army green trousers and the cardigan hence the colourfull scarf really stands out. But in real life, all of the colours really went well together. I mean it’s not a real winter if you can get away with a deep v and some bare skin showing.
I like black and navy blue together, and this outfit is proof. I also do not like getting rid of clothes, so if something doesn’t fit I will make it fit. The trousers started off being rather plain and also cutting off my circulation but after a busy afternoon, they acquired side-stripes and a better fit.
