This morning, the sun shone and the world outside my window looked good. I went to the wardrobe and pulled out a grey jumper. And then I put it back. Instead I pulled out this ...
Grey Uniqlo Cardi, Marant Etoile Blouse, Hobbs NW3 Bag
The raspberry coloured Marant top that I was so happy scoring but somehow never got round to wearing. Would it surprise you awfully that this is the first time I wore it properly for a full day? Umm it's only been about 6 months since I got it. I've tried it on a few times with different things and had it on for about 30 mins and then changed out of it again. Why? I'm not sure. Maybe because I like it and I don't want to spoil it? Anyway, it's been officially christened now and is now a "normal" item i.e. worn. And then I pulled on the old faithful grey Uniqlo cardi as it was warm but not that warm!
I also instinctively reached for my Office Namesake boots and then put them back in the wardrobe and pulled out these leopard shoes instead. This is another one of those items which I have only worn once for 20 mins ... in the back garden.
M&S Leopard Shoes, New Look Jeans
And then I took a step back and thought "hmmm - quite girly, a little bit mismatched but too late to change now" and headed out of the door for the school run.
Anyway, it was quite interesting to lay off the old faithfuls and reach for something a little unexpected. I got two compliments about the gold heels which I know I wouldn't have got if I'd stuck to my regular boots.
What was the last thing you wore which you got complimented on?
Last Note :
- The shoes hurt after 4 hours (I did a supermarket shop in them and some other errands). I put my Uggs on for the afternoon school run (I don't care what you think - my feet hurt and were cold).
- The shirt was very comfortable but draughty. I was a bit ambitious laying off the old Heattech so soon.
