Paisley


Free People Paisley Blouse C/O Shopbop | Suzy Shier Jeans | Viva Flats

While I can be a little picky when it comes to prints and patterns, I love the muted colours and paisley print of this Free People blouse. To me, it has a lovely laid back, almost bohemian feel to it. In keeping with that laid back vibe, I decided to pair it with tapered blue jeans. Absolutely shocking, isn't that? I had bell bottoms on to start with, but decided I wanted to go with something a little more form fitting.

Still, for a more chic look, I would pair it with classic black jeans (just super plain ones like this pair by Blank Denim). Alternatively, for a more colourful and retro look, perhaps a pair of trousers like these corduroy bell bottoms by Rag & Bone. Loving that shade of burgundy. I’ve actually got my eye on those. Although, I do realise that they may look a little out of place as spring comes on. Then again, I don’t really believe in following rules when it comes to style. I think, more than anything else, style is about what you personally like.

In true form, I didn’t really bother with accessories. And for shoes, I went with my well worn and well loved leather flats. Even after years, I still find that they seem to go with almost everything. What ever will I do when they finally come apart in a way that can’t just be fixed with epoxy…

Fashion Favourites | January 2016

Lattice


There’s not all that much to write about a look like this one. It's the kind of outfit I wear most days. Casual and comfortable, but not completely boring. That's what I tend to go for.

I paired a black lattice lace-up bodysuit with my oldest favourite jeans. I think I’ve mentioned them before, and the state they’re in. I should really just retire them. In reality, I’ll probably wear them until the fabric gives, being it’s what happened to my last favourite pair. I haven’t gotten my money out of jeans until I’ve accidentally ripped off and resewn the belt loops a few times and the fabric on the bum is about as thin as cheesecloth.

But enough about my raggedy, tatty jeans, the bodysuit! I love the retro feel of this bodysuit. I've been seeing lattice tops everywhere recently, so I'm assuming they're definitely A Thing at the moment. I don't really follows trends, but I certainly don't complain when something I like becomes readily available in all different colours and kinds...

While I was taking the photos for this post, my bedroom being cold as it ever is, it seemed like an idea to throw on my faux fur coat from last winter. I love faux fur coats, but I do sometimes feel they can look a little ostentatious. I think I’ve worn this one around the house to keep warm this winter more than anywhere else. Ostentatious or not, faux fur definitely works well for that.

Bra by Agent Provocateur C/O Shopbop | Skirt from Thrift Shop

It's just like me to pair an Agent Provocateur bra with a $1 satin skirt from a thrift shop. 

You can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl. Something like that.
