My style is fairly classic but casual too - there are few prints in my wardrobe but quite a bit of tailoring and layering... And above all fairly plain. However, in the past two weeks I have not had my eye on the proverbial 'style ball' at all it seems and I've lost sight of what I know (or knew) to be my style.... And I went "SOK".....
I purchased these two items :
Exhibit A :
And Exhibit B :
Now, whilst both on paper (or in the photographs) may look good they really are not "quite me"... Camouflage pants perhaps may suit some but I felt a bit "pseudo army girl" in them or that I was off to a fancy dress party...
And the leather boots - far too complicated not my usual style and too much going on. Fringing, buckles etc. Absolutely NO! How could I have got it so wrong twice in quick succession?
Anyway, I have replaced the above two items with these :
|Far better - plain khaki green no fancy patterns|
Here's another angle of the boots :
|Neutral and plain - my normal mantra|
Phew..... that's more like it!
Do you ever take your eye off your normal style radar and go completely off piste so to speak? Hope I'm not the only one - at least my mistakes have been remedied fairly fast though and I feel like I'm back in control again.
P.S. - so sorry I have had to put word verification on my posts - I was getting inundated with spam comments - any ideas for an alternative?
