I spoke a couple of weeks ago about creating a defined style, which then enables a more cohesive capsule. But every capsule I've done so far has had what i term 'The Wildcard'.
When you look in my wardrobe at the moment you see a wash of similar colours (denims, blues, black, cream, tan and a little pink and khaki), but what my eye is always pulled to, is this shirt.
It doesn't fit with my general (loose) theme, but yet it also works well with all my connecting pieces (jeans, skirts and cardigans).
When I wore this to the Cardiff Vegan Festival last week, Salvatore (my husband) even commented on how different it was for me.
Which of course I immediately said, "Different? Good different?", and then promptly wanted to go change. We were running late that day so I actually didn't have time to change, but I admit, I felt a little out of my comfort zone all day. Like a little niggling feeling that i wasn't quite representing myself through my outfit.
It's not that I hate the outfit, it's ok. But I think it just took me out of my comfort zone, which in turn means that perhaps in my mind I do actually have a defined style. Perhaps my subconscious knows more than I realise. And the style points go to the sub concious mind.
As for the shirt.. well I'm not sure it's working for me. I'm just not loving it( I bought it a year ago now I think) and having tried it once again, I'm not sure whether to persevere or hand it on to a new home.
Have you ever dressed and felt outside your comfort zone? How did it make you feel that day?
