Today is about being free of clutter. It’s been a while coming, but today is the day that my Nan’s house is finally ready for inspections by prospective buyers. There are people coming through this afternoon, so the next couple of hours will be spent frantically shoving as much as possible out of sight. Into cupboards, under beds, anywhere we can fit it really.
With that in mind, my outfit needs to be clutter-free as well. I don’t want to be annoyed by dangling jewellery or scarves, so to make it a little less boring I’ve gone for a top with interesting texture around the neckline. My accessory of choice is a belt (unlikely to get in the way), which adds some unexpected colour. It would be fantastic Nan gets a reasonable offer on the house today so this process doesn’t draw out for weeks and weeks!
Yesterday’s outfit had a tough brief to fulfil. It had to be suitable for: an appointment to sign an important contract, some furniture shopping, and many hours of sorting through old, dusty items from my Nan’s house. Of course, I could have bought a change of clothes. But when you get right down to it I just couldn’t be bothered.
Instead I chose a skirt (to look presentable for my appointment), but made sure everything was easily washable. And along with the skirt, my fleece-lined tights which I love – not only are they beautifully warm, but they are very thick so while busy clearing out the house I didn’t have to worry about accidentally flashing my underwear. Even with our crazy spring weather right now (from gale winds to hail to sunshine all in a day), I didn’t once get too cold or too hot, and was comfortable all the way until 11pm when we called it a day.

Yesterday I decided I should try harder to find some new colours to pair with my purple jeans – I’m pretty sure today’s green fits the brief. This navy/green print top somehow managed to convince me it was pretty much navy, and then before I knew it I was wearing emerald-green and bright purple together!
These outfit photos have sat on my camera a couple of days now – I don’t even remember which day they were from! Navy and purple: my favourite combination at the moment – I must try to get a little more adventurous again with these purple jeans.
Pretty much every time I wear this leopard print scarf I just can’t resist pairing it with my brown boots. Today I thought I’d consciously do something different (black boots – totally crazy I know). I still managed to sneak in some matching brown with my belt though – I’m wondering now if I should have gone for black instead?
Yes, I’m talking about some very minor points on a standard not-too-exciting outfit. Some days it’s minutia or nothing!
