Day 4 of 10… I’ve chosen to go a little off piste today and pretend it’s summer already – after all, I did choose these bits for my 10 pieces of clothing. I’m pairing shorts and a cami top while using the shirt-dress as a duster jacket. I love a little colour-clash, so went with not one, but TWO bead necklaces layered a la Iris Apfel – in hibiscus pink and buttercup yellow. I tried three, but I preferred the look of just two, and the third (in green) took too much attention away from the outfit itself.
It feels as though I’m wearing featuring a playsuit, and the belt adds a little definition. The shirt-dress-as-duster-jacket adds a little bit of a grown-up feel as do the heels. This look is purely a fever dream, because the current weather in London is definitely not conducive to it. It might be sunny, but there is no warmth in sight. So I put this on, took some photographs and loaded my woolies back upon my frozen self before I got frostbite in those oh-so-summery sandals.
Wearing more than one necklace can always be a bit daunting, but take Ms Apfel as your muse like I’ve done, and go bold or go home. Life’s too short to be wearing one piece at a time. Layer it on!
If you’d like to catch up on why I’m styling this shirt-dress in ten different ways, you might want to read my first post, which explains the whys and wherefores of the #10x10challenge and #onedressthirtyways. Tomorrow and for the next 5 days after that, there will be more blog posts and outfit details.
