Primark tea dress, Primark tee, thrifted cardigan, H&M tights, Chockers boots, Primark ring, handmade corsage
And the details…
This outfit really reminds me of wartime glamour – functional yet fashionable clothing that expressed the femininity of the women left behind, waiting for their husbands to return.
I really want to talk about trends today. There’s a little touch of trend in my outfit – workman’s boots, lilac shades, peachy tones – a barely-detected nod to spring’s hottest fashions. Only visible if you know what you’re looking for.
If I’m honest, I’m very slow when it comes to picking up trends. I find fashion magazines like Vogue really inaccessible (InStyle is about as in depth as I want to go) and I don’t keep up with the newest collections. I wait ’til trends filter down to the high street, then I buy the things I like. More often than not, it’s just a touch of this, a slice of that. I don’t think I could do head-to-toe trend if I tried!
What’s your approach to buying and wearing the latest trends? Are you a dedicated follower of fashion, with one eye trained on the catwalk and the other on netaporter? Or are you a bit indifferent, like me? I’d love to know.
PS – More new shoes (boots, really) here. I am more than impressed with these £35 boots from Chockers Shoes. And they came in a pink package – perfect!
