As we head into Winter the decreasing amount of daylight presents a challenge for me. I can cope with crisp autumnal days when it’s cold but the sun is bright. But those days when it never really gets light truly suck. While the run up to Christmas keeps me occupied, I know the really tough month will be January. Oh how I dread it. So I need to lift my spirits by wearing bright colours and soaking up the sunshine whenever I can. Nothing like starting how I mean to go on. (My blogger friend Anna has written a great post on coping with SAD, pop over to Anna’s Island Style for a read.)
My neon pink roll neck sweater is just the ticket for lifting me out of my seasonal slump. I’ve previously worn it with a zebra print mini skirt, but this time I’ve teamed it with navy. This floral print bomber jacket just happens to match the head tie perfectly! It’s from Marks & Spencer, although I bought it on eBay. It’s great for milder days when you don’t want to wear a thick coat. But, it’s roomy enough to layer a thick jumper underneath if it is a bit chilly.
I like the vintage vibe the head tie gives to the outfit. I’ve been wearing head bands a lot lately, but this is my first attempt at wearing a head tie. (If you need some tips, Suzi of Alternative Ageing is the lady to go to!) This one is from LanRetro, which sells clothes and accessories inspired by the 1950s.
I added some big blue hoop earrings and oversized sunglasses, plus a big flower ring that I found in a charity shop. The skirt is another charity shop bargain, and I bought the bag years ago on eBay, so in total I’m wearing four preloved items!
