Time to raid the other wardrobe.......
Culottes, crop-tops, satchels and denim jackets………I really am living up to my name of fashion victim; the only difference here though is I actually bought these items without deliberation about whether they would suit me, unlike the ‘ugly’ shoes in my previous post which I bought, very hesitantly, simply because they are fashionable and everyone who is anyone in the fashion blogging world appears to be wearing them – so shallow of me, eeek!
I’m quite proud of this outfit because with each piece being recycled from previous years, it hasn't contributed to this year’s credit card bill so I’m wearing it guilt-free. I house a summer wardrobe in my bedroom, as I’m sure most of you do, dedicated to apparel which only surface around this time of year, and these culottes (such a cool word, right?), the crop-top (still debating whether I’m too old for these) and the denim jacket (rare for me to wear a top that doesn't cover my ass) have made their summer 2014 début this weekend. The outfit can be dressed down and worn as casual day-wear, perhaps with the ‘ugly’ Birkenstock -style sandals or glammed up for the evening with a pair of sexy stillettos and a classic, chic bag/clutch, say the Saint LaurentCassandre tassel shoulder bag for instance…….dreamy.
Do you have any summer clothes that have made their 2014 debut yet? I look forward to hearing about them but for now, I’m off to enjoy Birmingham’s summer sun while it lasts.
