Having a classical, cotton boring dress gives lots of opportunities to try and reinvent the way it is worn every season. It is a very granny, no offense to grannies, type of dress that to give it a new breath of life requires modern accessories. I am wearing the dress with Casstanier like wedges, a very on-trend neutral belt, and a modern bag and earrings. It is the accessories that make the outfit work.
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.
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.
Can not pass a good bargain when I see one. I always buy things out of season. When I saw this top I had to get it. The colour is perfection and the fact that it is a semi-transparent makes it perfect for summer. My uniform: a good top, trousers, comfortable shoes, and some accessories.
As a person that doesn’t throw away good clothes, I have a lot of them in my closet. This open caftan deserves more attention that is getting. It consists of many colours and should be easy to style. This time I have paired it with pink trousers, nude, cropped top, nude bag and metallic trainers for an easy, comfortable look.
When you haven’t got something, borrow it. I have borrowed this jumper, if I have bought it I wouldn’t have worn it that often as I’m not that fond of black but it looks good today and it has zippers on the side to fit any hip size. The trousers are old but they are comfortable and something different than boring denim. The jacket is a wardrobe staple.
I remember last spring watching winter fashion shows and drooling over the wide leg, cuffed trousers. And what I have done was to put them on my wanted list and every time I have visited a charity shop I looked for them. As charity shops go, nothing comes specifically in your size or fits perfectly. Same with this pair, I had to do some alterations for them to fit, but the fabric is great and they flow beautifully. For them not to look very office-like, I’m wearing them with a fun jumper and very nouveau riche jacket.
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.
