Definitely pushing my comfort zone with this outfit, but that's the fun of dressing isn't it?
Oh man - if you'd seen me a few years ago (oh wait! You can...I conveniently haven't tagged anything more than a year or so old but should you feel the need you can trawl through some of my more ridiculous oh-the-innocence-of-youth getups [the REALLY ridiculous ones were pre-bloggy so those LOLs are reserved for those who knew me in my WAAPA days...not that I regret a single tutu or permanent marker graffitied tshirt, it was age appropriate self expression]) you'd be surprised to find me in anything other than a full-skirted 50s style with a super nipped waist, but as running and ballet change my body I am slowly finding the confidence to wear things that are less form fitting, less obvious. This may seem like I've got it backwards (err..Cap'n, surely being more confident equates to wearing more
slut dresses short&tight things?) but when for a long time you felt that having a waist was the only thing you had going for you, it takes a leap of faith to leave it relatively undefined (not that I have, entirely...in my head I pictured the jumper untucked, but couldn't bring myself to do it. Next time, perhaps?).
jumper - cotton on
skirt - salvos
necklace - corky st clair
rings - toby jones/vintage/estelle deve
bag - furla
boots - acne
single heart earring (if you have eagle eyes you may have noticed I only ever wear one, and have gold, silver & black versions, this particular one was a present)
watch (never credit it as I wear it every day, but it seems more obvious against the silver..old faithful 21st present from my folks) - citizen
