I thought this outfit was very country. Like proper old fashioned country (I really should be holding a hen or something in my hand.) I enjoyed the blend of the rugged shirt and boots with the sharp tailoring of the pencil skirt. But most of all I really liked the simplicity of this outfit. This has become a big thing for me lately. Simple outfits that still depict my personality. Working a full day is leaving me weary and I just long for fitted pieces and interesting tones. That outfit that you put on in a rush in the morning but you know it's going to work. Something fresh, comfy and still warm. Thankfully this new need hasn't left me without a wardrobe, I just had to rethink a few pieces. Try a few new things... and buy more tights.
The stretch in the evenings and the gorgeous (yet deceptive) sunshine makes me want to dive into my summer wardrobe. Don't worry I haven't gone mad and decided to ignore the severe weather warnings (like the lady I saw yesterday in flip flops!) I'm just going to try and integrate my winter and summer wardrobes better. I tried this a couple of years ago. It did not go well. But I shall persevere! Thankfully my winter wardrobe is far more colourful that it used to be.
