An everyday outfit
Anyway, here's one of my everyday outfits, a jumper knitted to a vintage pattern and simple black dress (it's folded on my legs, but it is a dress, not trousers). Since I finished knitting the jumper it's become one of my favourites. If I don't pin the neckline it looks more like a regular V-neck, but I like to pin it occasionally, and this time it's with a little Aynsley china floral brooch. With this, thick black tights – I was at university in the 1990s, some habits die hard! – and a pair of black shoes with a Louis heel. If it's a work day, I always wear perfume and jewellery of some sort, I don't feel finished without them.
It's typical of the stuff I wear for work, comfy and possibly a tad frumpy, but fairly fuss-free. I can't bear a mass of frou-frou, and even now often struggle to appreciate prints. (Let's not talk about the hair, mmkay?)
So, what's your everyday look? Streamlined? Full-on vintage glam? Typical 2010s office wear, with the good stuff saved for weekends?
(Thanks to Chloe and everyone at the Rose & Crown, Trowbridge, for letting me have a photo shoot in the pub, and thanks to Mr Robot for taking the picture. It's for a project which I'll tell you more about when the time is right!)
