I was watching This Is Us the other day where a teenage character was moaning about her brother:
“I don’t know why he spends so long in the bathroom – he’s like a cartoon character: he only has one look!”
That comment made me smile, as for a while now, I’ve only had one look too.
And as with scrapbooking, when you have a limited stash where everything works with everything else, it takes away all the guesswork.
Here’s how I get dressed, pretty much every single day…
I figure everyday might as well be a favourite comfy jeans and trainers day when you don’t need to get poshed-up for a job; I even wear them to church.
I have a couple of pairs and like to layer them up with soft little dresses.
I buy both jeans and dresses in charity shops or on eBay, so that I’m having a stab at ethical shopping.
I buy long sleeved tops in pretty colours (new – usually Dorothy Perkins) to layer up under my dresses. I like the pop of colour they give.
If it’s warm, I can lose the tee (though it has to be incredibly hot for me to lose the jeans!)
And if it’s chilly, I add a cosy jumper or hoodie.
My shoes are generally mens trainers or Converse boots, as I have size nines and that’s pretty much all that will fit me. (Thankfully, they now make mens trainers in cute colours too)
Oh, and I should just mention: the closer the pattern of my dresses to a Felicity Jane paper, the happier I am…
