Maybe I can wear it...?

Saturday, November 19, 2016


After posting about things I love but can't wear I decided it was time to persevere a little.

If you've read my blog for a long time you'll know that I like the odd style challenge, and I figured that nailing some of these looks, that I'd previously ruled out, would further expand my capsule wardrobe possibilities.

And anyway, what's the worst that could happen?

First up, I'm trying a neck scarf. Why couldn't / wouldn't I wear them? Because I thought I looked like an air hostess.

This one jumped out at me on a recent charity shop jaunt, and at £1.99 it would hardly be the end of the world if I didn't like how it looked.

But I do. Teamed with sleek, I've-just-been-to-the-hairdressers-hair, and a classic boat neck top I think it looks nice. And I'll be experimenting further after a good trawl through Pinterest for tips and inspiration.

It's good to step out of your comfort zone once in a while, even if it's just a tiny step sideways.

    1. thanks, I find big chunky scarves get in the way of my hair when it's this length, so this is a great alternative.

  4. You styled that neck scarf brilliantly. They are such a fun and - especially when charity shopped - cheap way to update and accessorize any outfit. That said, I really should wear a neck scarf more often, as I have so many of them. xxx

  5. It's a very nice neck scarf! I sometimes wear one but, owed to the low temperature we are having here, at the moment I prefer wearing a woollen scarf ... I am a little envions!! :-)

    1. Woollen would certainly make more sense at the moment!

  6. I love the idea behind this post and think it's fun to branch out and try new things, especially if it's something you'd love to try. I think the necktie looks great on you, and this has inspired me to try some styles I've been swooning over but haven't felt confident enough too. I've always wanted to try some patterned tights after I saw a pair that had birds and branches on them - they looked so whimsical! Looking lovely. - Tasha
