I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was very quiet, in fact I didn’t leave the house at all. Saturday was a very lazy day, but I was a bit more productive yesterday and got some jobs around the house done. I tried to get Isobel to join me in a workout but she wasn’t interested…oh well, at least I tried!
This month’s Style Not Age theme was chosen by Gail, our newest member. I guess a lot of us are spending more time wearing jeans lately, so we’re sharing our new season denim directions. I originally had a completely different outfit planned for this post featuring camo print jeans, but at the last minute I changed my mind and wanted to wear blue denim. I’ll be sharing that outfit in tomorrow’s link up post.
I had various blue denim outfits in mind, mostly involving jeans. But as I wear jeans quite a lot when I’m at home I decided to dig out my old denim jacket instead. I bought it from Debenhams at least 15 years ago and it still looks as good as new! It’s got a good amount of stretch in it so it’s really comfortable – I’m not a fan of rigid denim.
I really needed some colour to perk up my mood so I gave this sheer top with an oversized bow its first outing. It’s a Zara lookalike that I found on AliExpress when I bought the green organza blouse. It’s almost identical in shade to the culottes, which I bought from Marks & Spencer a couple of years ago. I added leopard print shoes and clutch bag to break up the pink and add a “third colour” (because we all treat leopard print as a neutral now, right?).
These restrictions on shopping and movement are forcing me to get a little more creative and figure out new ways to wear what’s already in my wardrobe. At least that’s one good thing to come out of it!
SHOP THE LOOK
It was freezing cold but I wanted to show you what the top looks like without the jacket.
And Isobel was keen to join me with a denim and pink outfit…she even worked some leopard print in too 🙂
