It was overcast this morning, and I had one of those days where – in an effort to be stylish but warm enough – my entire wardrobe looked uninspiring to me.
The individual pieces I laid out seemed just … average. I had a class to attend, then a lunch, and I really wanted to wear a bright colour or two to counteract the grey skies outside.
Then after a little bit of trial and error, an unexpected combo of said ‘average’ pieces (plus a little fold here and there) led to what became my favourite outfit I’ve worn in a long time.
I felt so happy as I stepped out of the house – I felt comfortable, polished, colourful and still warm enough for whatever unpredictable weather the day brought. Yay!
At this point I added a loose turquoise jumper (that’s sweater for my US side!) that I got last week. It’s a bit too big on its own, but I decided to try it layered on top of the white.
Next I thought I should cover up the collar as it was a bit awkward, and luckily I’ve collected quite a few scarves over time, one of which turned out to be the perfect colours.
