I would like to be:
♥ classic and stylish
♥ well put together
♥ confident in my choices
♥ brave enough to purchase a garment in the correct size (even if it is a size larger than I would have hoped)
♥ able to escape the comfort of black
♥ disciplined enough to avoid trends that don’t suit my style or shape (despite looking fabulous on other women)
My current wardrobe is all black dresses, an assortment of patterned skirts and singlet tops. A large percentage of the clothing I didn’t throw out in my spring clean last year don’t fit me anymore (a recent occurance and I am working on this at the moment with my trainer) or have needed tailoring to fit well for months. I do not have a single pair of pants that flatter my figure and my basics are falling apart after so much use.
I have about 4 items in my wardrobe that make me really excited to put them on. They are often tricky to combine with other items into a whole ‘outfit’.
I own about 5,000 sets of underwear (all of which are about 6 years old) and only wear a select few of those. I have never been fitted and never buy practical underwear either.
Time to make some changes.
This is slightly difficult because I am saving for my European holiday in late August, but there are a few things I can do to start the ball rolling on my style transformation.
This month’s style challenges:
Invest in well fitting (practical!) underwear and basics.
Consider what items are needed to truly “make” an outfit and hunt them down
Investigate new accessories (e.g. scarves and hats)
Find a cute and practical pair of flats for use on the holiday
Items to find once in Europe:
The perfect pair of jeans (probably boot cut) to suit my figure
A crisp tailored white shirt
Cute ankle boots and knee high boots (I don’t think I’m brave enough to try the thigh high trend)
A pair of slim fit black pants
A classic tailored leather jacket (not a bomber or biker style)
What changes are you making to your style?
Do you have any key items you are on the lookout for?
