It’s rather fanciful, taking photos of one’s outfit for the day. It’s part of being frivolous and fun, and exactly my aim.
I don’t angst over what I’m wearing. In the last three years I’ve barely scraped the cream off the retail offerings, in fact, let me rephrase, I decidedly did not have any cream! Hard to believe, but I did it and am still 100% supremely happy (I lie, I am happier!)
Perhaps it’s age or wisdom or knowledge or a mix of all three, but I’ve swapped out big gulps of mindless and entertaining consumerism for savouring sips of deliberate and excellent quality delights. I still love perusing and making a purchase, only my modus operandi is vastly different now.
So this outfit is about working with what you have…over and over and over again, and happily surprising yourself with your sweet remixed creations. It’s simple, comfortable and still stylish. Let’s just say I had a great day…I think it went something like this: MagicalMonday
Boots: Wittner ─ birthday gift from the family.
Cardigan: Michelle Ludek ─ purchased in South Africa about 4 years ago. It was originally designed with a draped cut-out at the back. Recently, I decided to cut through it for a re-newed look ─ it now has draped sides.
Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Bag: River Island via ASOS ─ best buy ever! It’s so easy to wear, for both day and night, and it holds plenty!
Necklace: The Swinging Girl ─ another oldie, and my inauguration into online shopping! Yes, my first foray into the online world of shopping, & via Etsy too! I don’t remember the seller’s name (it was a cool name, and long) but I do remember that she was delightful. I had ordered 2 ─ a white and a black one ─ and the black one arrived broken. She sent me a new one immediately, no questions asked, and added some other little goodies along with her apology note!
Ring: Hmmm…possibly from a high-street store like Diva? It was so long ago…
Hair: freshly washed and taking curly-shape quite nicely
Make-up: I’ll be putting on my Ere Perez ‘Healthy’ lip and cheek balm when I’m in the car!
Clearly no manicure, but a heart full of purpose, focus and excitement!
