[Outfit: Whistles jeans, Zara boots, & Other Stories jumper, Oasis necklace]
Each day after an outfit photo has been taken, I try and think of an angle to take on it when writing the post. Whether it’s something to do with the colour of an outfit, a particular trend, a styling trick, divulging a great find or pairing the old with the new, I usually (hopefully) come up with something.
However today I’ve come up with a big, fat zilch. My initial reaction was that I needed to get my hair cut (that’s already booked) and that I look as if I could do with eating a pie or two – but honestly that’s just the angle.
I thought about going down the route of how Style Guile was always meant to be very much feet on the ground fashion, which it is, but that would be copping out. Then I was going to talk about how I’m preparing for my 12 outfits of Christmas posts, which gives me leeway to look like a scruffy bum before the sparkles start. That’s not so much of an excuse but it’s not really a good enough angle. And then I was going to write about how I was just flipping freezing and that I wanted to be warm, which is true but then again it always is, so that’s hardly new. Then I was going to link to my lovely necklace (a bargain at £6 from Oasis) but it’s no longer online so that angle failed too. So in the end I decided to write about how all my angles for writing a post had failed and in doing so I seem to have written a post. Hope that’s OK with you all for tonight!
One thing that I did do though and which I hope may be of some use, was to visit the & Other Stories site, just to see if I could find a similar jumper. In terms of shape (a bit short and a bit boxy) this Wool pearl detail sweater (£79) is pretty similar (although in terms of anything else it’s not even remotely similar) and it’s also just, well, pretty really. Possibly rather nice for Christmas day I thought…..
