Making It Work
Autumn's arrival has thrown up a few challenges in my wardrobe. My usual wardrobe at this time of the year has involved jeans in every shape and form but not so this year. I am currently surviving on a couple of skirts, 2 3/4 sleeve shirts and a few dresses. Needless to say, I am sick to death of all of them and desperately trying to reinvent new ways of wearing them all. I am, however, determined not to add any more rtw to my wardrobe.
I got up this morning to the autumns first frost. Minus 2 degrees celcius was rather a shock, especially when I was putting out the washing in the early hours. The one thing you can be certain of with a frost, is a sunny day and today, I knew, would not disappoint. It is not uncommon for the day to climb into the early twenties by mid morning so layering is a must. Today's outfit started with new leather boots which conveniently arrived in the mail yesterday from Amazon. The brown in the boots matched the brown in my favourite upcycled blouse. Rather than stick to my normal black Vogue skirt with this blouse, for some reason today, I reached for this rather under used Colette Meringue skirt. I am not sure why it is rather unloved and forlorn in my wardrobe because, actually, I quite like it! Because it was frosty and I work in a glass house (I kid you not, my office is 75% glass), I also began the day in a charcoal coloured light weight merino vest by Maya which was discarded as the day warmed up.
The verdict....I actually quite like brown and grey worn together. It is not something I have ever done in the past as far as I can recall. I guess that is one benefit of blogging, stepping out of my comfort zone.
On a side note, I am contemplating joining up with Me Made May but I am not sure whether I will have the time to take daily photographs. If I do it, I think I will need to post photos weekly. What do you think?
