Well, when you just can’t wait until next summer. I have just got this rose gold sequined top for absolute pennies and decided that today I’m going to wear it no matter what. To start with the weather is rather cold, so I need to layer. Typically I seem to have a polo neck in most colours , but not in beige. On the other hand, I do have a cardigan in such colour so it had to do. If it is a bit odd to wear a vest over a cardigan, let me tell you it’s only clothes that you take off at the end of the day. To make everything colour coordinated I went with beige trousers and a pale pink tailored jacket, pink shoes and a beige bag. And it didn’t rain today.
I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.
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.
I wanted to wear these white denim trousers, but at the same time I have felt like a squeezed up sausage, so the best way to disguise it is to wear something floaty over it. It covers your problem areas and adds a lot more interest to otherwise rather boring outfit.
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.
Vests are back in. The one I’m wearing has a ‘bonus feature’ which can double up as a ‘necklace. The flats have bows on them, so I may not be wearing any accessories, but there is a lot going on if you take into account that the vest has a metallic thread.
It is fun to keep finding new ways to wear the same clothes. This time the culottes worn with a stripy multicoloured, very old vest, but this time with a jade, statement necklace to jazz it up. As there is a blue in the vest I have added a blue bag. And as always the white trainers.
