Just back from work and I thought I’d show you my outfit from today. I used to wear really dressy outfits with my heels and dresses to work. But I’ve come to the conclusion that, as I’m working at a theatre group with little kids and I don’t really know what I’m going to be doing, I should probs wear relaxed/movable clothes until I know what’s suitable to wear. Sadly, the “Oh, you look nice!” and “I like your ____” comments aren’t as frequent, but I guess that’s the price I may for not making an idiot of myself when my movement is obstructed by my clothes.
I really like this top, but I don’t find that I really have a lot that goes with it. As it’s a cropped top, I wear a white vest top underneath as, 1) I’m not confident in flaunting my tum and 2) It’s Autumn/Winter and really not the right temperature to be flaunting a lot tbh! Any other pale top would work well underneath too, depending on what else you choose to team the cropped top with. This one is a pale salmon colour so maybe even a duck egg blue top would work. I like the cut away shoulder detail and the edge of the sleeves are decorated with little sparkly gemstones. This is one of my few tops with a graphic design on and as the design is black, this is the colour I based the rest of my outfit on. I chose a black cardigan and black leggings (with black tights on underneath, natch!). I was toying with the idea of wearing a pair of tan/tobacco coloured chinos instead of leggings, which would have worked just as well too.
I decided to accessorise with rings and bracelets because the top has gold and silvery bits on it too. I’ve got a group of black, white and tan thread handmade bracelets on my left hand. On the right, I have one of my ring-bracelet combo pieces, this one has a little skull in the middle and the rest of the sequins and beads have a pastel/peach/salmon colour theme. I also have a simple joined heart band around my thumb.
I wore my hair up in a ponytail, because I wanted it off my shoulders so I could show off the cutout shoulder detail. Also, I’m malting and I didn’t want to be finding my hair all over my tops instead of on my head. Oops!
Walk like and Egyptian!
