Sorry for my absence – as much as I’d love to tell you I’ve been away on holidays gathering inspiration and new clothes this is simply not the case! The last couple of weeks I’ve been scrambling to get everything done and honestly have not had the time to think about photographing outfits. It seemed like a whole bunch of projects I’ve been working towards for months suddenly started to wrap up all at once. Packing up Nan’s house, converting our garage into a home office, launching our new farm management software at work – I confess there have been many days of re-wearing an outfit from the day before.
Anyway, here I am today making a bit of an effort on my appearance for the first time in a couple of weeks, in all blue and green. I’m still trying to figure out if this classifies as monochromatic – regardless, hey I got dressed and perhaps things can slow down a little now (temporarily at least).
Today was a busy, disjointed kind of day. Much like my outfit I guess. Black, navy, green, turquoise all bundled together – not to mention two different types of birds. I’m definitely much less bothered by “clashing” colours these days!
I actually wore this outfit on Friday, but it ended up being so crazy that day I didn’t get the chance to take photos. Better late than never! It’s nothing fancy or exciting, but really comfy and I loved wearing it.
I’ve paired this scarf and striped top before, but I just couldn’t resist doing it again – I love the way the patterns play off each other. I also just realised that almost every time I wear this black-and-white striped top I choose black-and-white shoes to go with it, can’t help myself apparently!
Today was my birthday, hooray! It’s certainly nice to have a special day where you get a little extra attention and feel far less guilt for indulging in too much cake.
It’s also a year since I turned thirty, which means it’s fast approaching a year since I started this blog to document (and motivate) my journey to build a more functional wardrobe. I’m making smarter choices when purchasing new items, and I’m definitely more confident about putting together outfits I like. Such as today’s outfit – I really enjoyed wearing it to celebrate my birthday with family. (Unfortunately the photos don’t do it justice – a dark stormy day meant there was little light to work with, even at midday.)
