If Only: Outfit Of The Day 39#

It’d be wrong for me to post this without giving a shout out to my lovely flatmate for this one. Being from Spain, she always survives England’s pitiful excuse for a summer (especially now, on the brink of a new season), with skinny jeans and the cosiest looking jumpers that are just a size or two too big. It’s a look that we all reach for at the time of year, but whereas I’ve always stuck mostly to dark jewel tones (but for one regrettable orange jumper), she knows how to bring summer cheer to a sluggish day. Honestly, while I’m living here, you’ll be seeing a lot of influence from both of my two flatmates creeping into my style. The turban, however, that’s all down to the mystery stranger on Brick Lane.

If Only: Outfit Of The Day 38#

Recently a friend told me that I have a very ’70s vibe’ going on with my look lately… honestly, it surprised me, but looking now at today’s styled look (as while I can’t afford this crazy, wear-it-once wardrobe of my imagination), I can see what she means. The chunky heels, the socks, the colour palette… yes, I see it now.

This could so easily step over the line into a going out outfit, especially with the heels and clutch bag, but I would still dare to wear it to the corner shop to buy milk for my cornflakes… is it just me who finds it impossible to say ‘milk for my cornflakes’ without feeling slightly uncomfortable, like it’s a badly veiled euphemism or some such thing? …I think I need to find some girl friends to dilute their foul-mouthed, dirty-minded influences. Anyone?

Is there anything more English than a flat cap? Besides… a Union Jack-printed flat cap, perhaps, but luckily I don’t think such a things exist (except for perhaps in the deepest depths of an Ebay store warehouse in China). I’ll admit, one of the things that I have found to be tricky since cutting my hair, is finding a hat that suits a pixie cut.  I know that hats and short hair can work – plenty of men look amazing in hats, after all, but I definitely find myself much more limited for choice than I am used to. A flat cap, however, works even better with short hair, in my opinion, than long. It’s a hat designed for a pixie cut… and, like I said, I find it weirdly patriotic. However, lets throw in some jewellery, a cute bag, a pop of red lipstick and these beautiful blue floral heels to stop the look from becoming completely androgynous. I’m just not in the mood for going entirely androgynous today.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 33#

Maybe it’s because it’s September, maybe because it’s school season, and I suddenly find myself once again wondering whether I am invisible to anyone under the age of sixteen as children leave school on their scooters, ramming the front wheel into my ankle, running their bikes over my toes, headbutting me in the thigh, their screeches of laughter and shouts to each other ringing through my ears, disturbing what was just a week ago a very peaceful route through the quiet residential streets of my neighbourhood. Maybe it’s the first crisp, falling leaves of autumn, but there is definitely an element of back-to-school chic intertwined with an autumnal colour scheme for today’s look. Slightly-clashing patterns, block colours, lashings of accessories and a hit of grown up lace lingerie peaking through a shirt… yes.. I like this one very much.
