Every outfit is not a style statement
Some outfits are not even particularly stylish. And some outfits might simply be a bit blah… This is one of those outfits.
Because that’s what real life is like: sometimes you just can’t be bothered to make an effort, or maybe it’s one of those days when you hate all your clothes. Or perhaps it’s a fat day (come on, we all pay lip service to body positivity these days, but you know as well as I that we all still have those days…).
Whatever the reason, you end up wearing something that is boring or uninspiring, or both. A bit blah, in other words…
At first I didn’t feel like posting this outfit at all (you know, because it’s a bit blah and all…), and I thought it was just a failed attempt at recreating another look I really liked, but with a warmer coat. But that’s OK.
I mean, It was -again- one of those days (= a fat day, I-hate-all-my-clothes-and-I-have-nothing-to-wear day, take your pick). In fact, I have those days quite often…
But most of the time I don’t have time to wallow in it. Like most people, I have other things to do, or I’m just too tired to care.
Anyway… I may find the outfit boring, but my hair looks damn good in these photos. Even if I say so myself. And if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know how rare that is. Usually it’s my hair that I hate… I have a life-long love-hate relationship (OK, more hate than love) with my hair, but I’m finally learning to get along with my curls (I’m still a long way from liking them), and bad hair days are getting a bit less frequent.

How would you spruce up an outfit that’s a bit blah?
