woohoo i’m back with an outfit post. After over a week off and a month of very limited blogging, it feels good to be getting back in to some sort of blogging groove.
As the year draws to end and everyone starts to reflect on what has been their highs and lows i can’t help but follow suit. One things thats been a big change this past year has been my style. No longer are all my outfits full of colour and pattern mixing, but more simple and classic. It’s taken me a while to come to terms with this, heck i feel (felt) that i built this blog on colourful outfits, which i do still love, but on a daily basis i am reaching more and more for neutrals and finally i am ok with this. When i wore this outfit yesterday my step daughter said it looked very grown up and nice and all, but not her style. This i was actually ok with! I’ve established that i don’t always have to be ‘down with the kids’ haha! and that growing up and a growing sense of personal style can also be very cool, going hand in hand with being more comfortable in my own skin that i ever have.
Grey may be dull to some but to me it is my new favourite go to colour.
2015 may be more greys and blacks but my mood is joyful and happy.
This can only be a good thing!
A quick note on the outfit, i am in love with faux leather trousers! Having dabbled with coated skinny jeans & faux leather look leggings, i’ve now gone the whole hog and gone for faux leather jeans and i just love them and wanna wear them all the time. They just add that look of luxe and like effort was made, but haha i fooled you because actually really it’s just jeans and a sweater.. 😉
The coat was also bought in the pre-christmas sale, even though its New Look i thought it looked more like Cos! its really beautiful on with its simple cut and lovely lines, and i know i know, another coat.. uughh! But it was such a bargain and it’s grey. I am loving grey right now. And also khaki. Two new colours to me that i can not get enough of.
Speaking of grey though.. 50 shades of infact… i have never read the books, have you? would you recommend or just go see the film? The hype has made me curious i must say!
