I just realised when writing up the details for the week’s outfits that, with the exception of Wednesday, every day this week I wore black! That was unintentional, and I was a bit taken aback when I realised. Over and above the usual considerations, a couple of things influenced my outfit choices:
* It has finally cooled down a bit, thank goodness! The previous Friday – ‘Parasol Pretty’ – the temp reached almost 40 degrees Celsius, not very nice! Not that I am complaining, because at present America is freezing over, and Britain has had floods recently, so I don’t mind a few stinky hot days. I’d been holding over the ‘Gatsby’ dress for ages waiting for an opportunity to wear it, as it’s wool and quite heavy.
* I had a lunch date with a friend on the ‘Gothic Glam’ day so I wanted to look extra nice 😉
It certainly is very easy to get stuck in clothing ‘ruts’ though; I usually mix it up quite a lot during the week but on the weekends I do find it very hard to break away from jeans and t-shirts, which is being a bit lazy. Must try harder on this one!
I’ll endeavour to be more colourful next week – thank goodness for the green dress on Wednesday! Can always rely on the 70’s for a pop of colour 😉
