I wore this outfit in August last year when we looked at our current apartment for the first time. I had different shoes and a brown belt with it but aside from that it was the same. Oh, no scarf though. And my hair was out. It’s amazing that I remember all of that but I do. Anyway, when I wore it last year I felt great. We were moving out after a patch of tough, tough times. I was working a new job and everything was exciting.
It’s amazing the difference that circumstances can make to an outfit. I had something else in mind this morning that clashed spectacularly but the silhouette wasn’t right so I switched the shirt out for this cardigan and scarf and changed my shoes. I should feel better than I do. I love this cardigan and these shoes. And this shirt too. Instead I feel a little uncomfortable and bland. Someone even commented that I looked rather subdued today. I should be able to dress subdued if I want but I’d like to do it on my terms.
I’m not sure that I’m 100% stoked with my hair in braids either. OK, ok, let’s turn this around. It’s nice and grey outside and we all know that’s my favourite kind of weather. It means that I get to wear things like scarves and cardigans. This scarf is actually my Mum’s and it feels nice to have something of hers on. I was really excited when I found these shoes. And finally, I’m really happy with how I customised the band on this watch. Even though I didn’t notice that it had stopped until 10am this morning, I still like the look of it. There, all better.
