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.

The Hibiscus and Buttercup necklaces are available to buy along with several other colours with brass beads and without.
