Some outfits are the perfect expression of one's personality...This isn't one of them. This was an experiment, and not a very successful one. But hey, every once in a while you have to try something new. How else would you ever learn anything new and interesting?
What's wrong with this particular outfit, then? Well, it's not really my style... Although I have to admit that 'my style' changes to some extent depending on whether I'm staying in Finland or in the U.K. For starters, in Finland I'm working, whereas in the U.K. I'm not. So, smart casual / professional vs much more casual / sloppy, that's how we could characterise it. Or, a more trend-conscious look vs 'at-least-I'm-not-wearing-gym-pants-when-I-go-out' look...
And this outfit? It was an attempt to smarten up a very casual look. Or my version of that very British look of wearing a parka with just about anything. Or it could be that I had to pop into the shop and just pulled something out of the closet without thinking... That's what it looks like, anyway.
So, why do I want to post it, then? Well, we all have our 'off' days, and that's OK. Let's call it taking a break from being fabulous. Or maybe I just want to show you that experimenting is good. But sticking with what you do best is better.
We'll be returning to our usual fabulous programme with the next post...
How do you dress when you take a break from being fabulous?
