I’m not quite sure how it came about but I decided to mix camo print GAP trousers with several layers, a Boden jacket and then a bright Zara scarf. Because the print in the trousers is fairly subtle, and because the colours in the scarf (apart from the bright yellow) are the same as those in the trousers and the bag, it just about got itself under the radar of fashion crimes.
This was the first time that I had worn the new Zara scarf and I really like it – it’s huge and a bit wafty and soft – so very spring like – and you can see how much brighter it makes the whole outfit.
Here’s a closer look at the layering that went on – an essential part of my everyday life until the thermometer hits at least 20 degrees! First on was the long cobalt Jigsaw top, followed by a slightly shorter black Zara jumper, followed by an even shorter Boden jacket – a sort of stepped approach to layering – and it really doesn’t matter that the jacket is the shortest of those steps!
Today I spent the day walking around the Touchwood shopping centre in Solihull, choosing outfits for a two day style event that I am running there next weekend. Please do come and say hello if you are in the area. For anyone who likes chatting about clothes it will be the perfect opportunity to do so, plus the PR Company have come up with a great idea on how it should all look, so it’s quite hi-tec and interactive.
Anyway, here’s something to leave you with which I read in the 6 year olds R.E. book at parents’ evening – it made me laugh:
“Jesus gave up his life for everyone. I wud give up costud (custard) for Amelie.”
I’m not sure that it is quite the same level of sacrifice but I think that the intention is good.
