I have reassed my jeans and whether they do anything for me, replaced with fits that actually work. I have looked at some faves and asked myself why I am not wearing them and what I need to get it to work for me.
Oh and yes. I bought some bits just "coz". On the plus side I have discovered depop, an app where I can sell some bits!
So what are my faves?
1- A hat. You know what, I have toyed with buying a hat for an age. Having short hair meant that it didn't sit right, but now my hair is growing and I have a longer softer fringe I have gone with the "I don't care what people think" attitude. I now have two.
2- A funky belt. Ahhh a belt, I love me a belt. It can totally change a look! I am in love with my Topshop western belt.
3- A good skinny jean. I have been long in love with Topshop Jamie jeans, as quite frankly they hold in what being a mama gave me! What I have just discovered though is the Cain fit.... Oooh I likey! I have tried River Island and not got on well at all and well we won't even go there with good old Levis!
4- A jacket. This is where I struggle. "A" jacket doesn't work for me, I have an addiction I know, but a jacket really can make an outfit pop. I am totally in love with my new yellow- yes yellow- biker jacket, as it really stands out against the blacks that I love to wear! Oh and then there is my all saints biker, this is a beaut! I have pined after a soft real leather biker for some time and I finally got my mitts on one, the hard work is paying off!
5- Boots. I live in boots. Like the jackets I have an issue here. I just find them far too appealing. I have been looking for something different and my new Topshop ( I know there is a theme here, but unfortunately I have had no help from them!) The square toe gives them a retro twist and less squashed toes, the soft leather means they are super comfy, the sock style around my ankle means they totally work with uhmmm everything and then the heel.... Well the heel is to die for, they stand out. Another fave pair of mine are the burgundy buckle boots above. -Yes these are Topshop too.
I could go on, I really could. But I will leave it there!
