Addicted to shopping I am for sure, maybe that’s why I couldn’t pass by the dress, the jacket and the bag. But let’s start from the beginning. The bag was on my radar from the summer. It was way too expensive to pay the full price, but I did love its squishiness and the colour, yellow but not in your face. After it went on sale I have snapped it up as the colour is muted enough not to be just a summer bag but it will fit into my winter colour scheme. The dress was full price, but I know how difficult it is to find a jumper dress that ticks all of the boxes at a reasonable price I was looking for one for the last 2 years. And the jacket was totally not needed but wanted, because of its colour and the fact that is cropped. All my winter jackets are longer, which makes perfect sense in colder months, but also gives the same silhouette. We shall see how practical a short jacket will be. On the other hand, winters hardly ever are frosty anymore. Overall I’m very pleased with this modern look.
Love the green boots, but they do not photograph well. The whole outfit is surprisingly well colour coordinated and jet the picture does not show it well. All items have golden hardware. The earrings match the boots, the boots match the short cardigan. The trousers match the long cardigan which grounds it all. And the bag fits the overall colour scheme. Will have to try harder next time.
Another take on pastels. Plain colours but all with different textures. Knitt, lace and denim. Hugely comfortable, vastly wearable and casual. I have swapped the belt for another one that picks up on the colour of the trainers
A warmer day and I am summer-ready already. Despite questionable temperatures, I’m ready to show too much skin and cover myself in floral prints head to toe. And the white coat comes out too. I have used the colours of the flowers in the print- yellow and green and lots of white.
Cost per wear is getting already smaller on the brown coat. A useful item to have to wear with the 70-ties revival in fashion. Neutral colour that has got endless possibilities when it comes to styling it. This time I have used a summer dress with this fabulous pom-pom fringing that moves with every step. By using a mustard colour T-shirt I have transformed it into a skirt. Colour matching boots for that autumnal feel and pom-pom, yellow earrings to add movement on the top half of the outfit.
So, I’m stuck at home. It’s pandemic out there and for the greater good, I have to stay home, so I’m doing. But if I was allowed outside that’s probably what I would be wearing. You have probably spotted a trend here: shorts cut out of trousers that I already have and not very often wear. This pair of trousers is made from quite thick fabric and the material didn’t fold nicely at the hem, so the trousers got hardly ever worn. But we do not like such items in our wardrobes, they have to perform or go or get altered. After some DIY I can wear shorts when it’s still warm but I’m also hoping to wear them with tights when it gets colder. Today I went all yellow, lighter with the top, and stronger with the accessories.
Getting out of my comfort zone. I have got as a present from my friend a couple of polo necks, one of them in bright yellow. I was determined to wear it while the weather is still cold, but what to wear bright yellow with in the middle of winter. Rather than have it as a dominant colour wear it as an accent, so I have put a cream jumper over it and the yellow only shows around the neck and on the cuffs. The rest is all black in different textures, some shiny, some matt, some furry.
