What I Wore Wednesday

pleated poppy
Every now and then I receive emails (some nice, some not so nice) asking why I post photos of myself in WIWW, since I am not "fashion blogger material" or "skinny" or "a celebrity". To be perfectly honest, I mostly post these for me. Putting up photos to the WWW keeps me accountable to myself, to get up in the morning, pick a nice and polished outfit, and present myself nicely to the world. It is so easy as a mum to forget about ourselves, to put ourselves last. I am not saying that we need to go out there and be a style maven, I am certainly not one, but at least I can show myself, my children and the world that I value myself enough to put on a great outfit. I do hope that you can take some inspiration from my posts - my style might not be your style (and goodness knows, I change my style quite frequently!) - but maybe it encourages you to try something new.

This scarf was an impulse buy - the temperature suddenly dipped and I was suddenly freezing! - but though it was not a planned purchase, I carefully considered what was on offer to pick something that would go with my wardrobe as a whole, and not just this one outfit.

Black merino thermals: Target
Black waterfall cardigan: Morgan Marks

Slim cut jeans: Gap

Black and white scarf: Loop
Black suede ankle boots: Modern Vintage

I don't know why, but this outfit makes me think of elves in the Lord of the Rings, which was not my intent, but I'll run with it!!

Grey long sleeved tee: Gap
Teal wrap cardigan: Morgan Marks
Slim cut jeans: Gap

Green beaded necklace: Etsy
Brown boots: Dr Martens

This tunic is so comfy, it is like going out on pyjamas!! And I don't know what was going on with the weather, but my hair was super curly today - I wish my hair was like this everyday.

Navy tunic: Witchery
Slim cut jeans: Gap
Bone necklace: Witchery
Brown boots: Dr Martens

See you all next week!!
