As a "fashion/style/insert-your-own-interpretation-here", I have realized that I am obliged to include my own take on style, how I put together outfits and the like. This has prompted me to rekindle my relationship with my LOOKBOOK account. I don't know if any of my wonderful followers (I think you're all fab for choosing to support this drone of a blog) have any particular interest about the workings of my wardrobe but what is a style blog without, at least, a minute insight into one's personal style?
This outfit, aptly titled "Breton", is my go-to outfit. This picture is actually a year old, but the outfit itself is timeless. I can almost hear the exasperated groans in the minds of my friends when we meet up, as they think "Is she wearing that again?!" to themselves. When it comes to over-wearing a particular outfit or item of clothing, I'm guilty as charged. If an outfit feels good on, or I adore how it looks, I continue to wear it much to the annoyance of everyone else.
The most wonderful aspect to this ensemble is it's universality. The picture above was taken in July of 2010; there I stood in my notoriously awkward stance, bare-legged with slicked back hair and a pop of red on my lips to add colour. Tres summery, if I'm not mistaken? However, you can reverse the look to carry on it's legacy into the harsh months of winter. Additions of a pair of black tights under the shorts and a cute duffle coat and voila!
As my first "personal style" post, I hope I did myself slight justice. Let me know what you all think and should I make similar What I Wear posts.
Also, please hype the look!
