Hello my loves, how are you all doing? I hope you have had a good week despite everything. Mine was okay, a little bit quieter week at work I guess that is because the students are at home at the minute, well the majority I believe. It makes a world of difference and can actually enjoy work more knowing it is so much more calmer. It hasn't felt so calm in a long time, I would probably say since Summer and then it has been busy ever since. However I always try to be positive and come into work with a smile on face, I take every day as it comes and I always love the weekend just because I can style up my outfit. I know we cannot go anywhere as everything is shut but what I enjoy the most is having a look in my wardrobe and finding another way of wearing my clothes. Reworking my clothes is something I am passionate about this year, instead of buying pieces all the time, I want to save my money and love the clothes I have in my wardrobe. Towards the end of 2020 I sorted out my clothes out and got rid of some pieces I wasn't loving anymore, they all went to charity and that makes me happy that someone will enjoy them just as much as I did. So at the moment I am really enjoying my clothes and I wanted to share with you my latest look, this time of the year is a firm favourite of mine. I love layered looks, it lets you add another level to your outfit and this is what I have done to this one.
So, the outfit.
A colour that I added into my wardrobe last year was purple, I bought a beautiful high neck top from & Other Stories last summer in July when the shops were open and we had a bit of freedom. It has a long sleeves, a high neck but not too high which I love because you can even roll it down a bit if you wanted and such a gorgeous Paisley vibe to it. I worn this one a few times on its own with jeans but wanted to add something else to it and decided that my 70s inspired lilac Margot dagger collar top would look perfect with this paisley top. I tried both together and I loved it. As you can see in the pictures it really looks great and because the weather is cold it is a great way to be able to wear a top with short sleeves.
Even a knitted jumper would look great under this top, another way of styling this outfit is adding a t-shirt to the mix. T-shirts as you know are a staple in my wardrobe and I absolutely love wearing them. I added this Saturday t-shirt over the top of the Margot Dagger Collar Polo and it looked super cool. Unfortunately it is sold out but you will definitely be able to find something similar, I just love the colours and it is a oversized tee which is the best for layering.
Winter outfits can just be as exciting even if we are stuck at home but perhaps you are working through lockdown like myself then you may look forward to styling up your favourite outfits and it may be a way for you to look forward to the weekend and forgot about what's going on (just for a little bit) and let your creativeness flow. You know that feeling of how to shake your winter blues..
Sending all the love to you all!
