I’ve always liked the layered look on others but never managed to achieve it consistently for myself so as one of my Closet Resolutions for this year, I put ‘Layering’ on the to do list. Quite by chance it’s finally happening for me! In fact I can cross off most if not everything on the list surprisingly enough. I never thought I’d manage it and within the year. I mean the list was really an aide-mémoire and although I could have made more of a conscious effort, I just hoped it would all happen as I worked through my closet and seasons. There was no rush but at 45 I feel there isn’t a whole lot of time before I start stressing about matching my outfit to my walking frame – that is if I’m still in control of my faculties by then lol!
I’m wearing a knitted dress by Isabella Oliver, my first purchase. It has short sleeves so perfect for the Spring/Summer and on mild Winter days like today. Sadly, I’m not too impressed with the quality: it shrank slightly in a cold wash and looks worn in even though this is the first time I’ve put it on. Two items from the Men’s department -Chambray shirt is Gap and this H&M parka is so fantastic, I don’t know how I lived without them before!
Thanks for reading!
