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.
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.
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.
