Outfit: Silk

Silk blouse and Cheap Monday jeans

Outfit photos are the bread and butter of personal fashion bloggers, but you’d have to go back to 7 September to see what I’ve been wearing. Gradually, I’ve become move fussy about the quality and quantity of clothing I own, and about the image I’m projecting. A lot of my clothes have been donated to charity shops, and I’m deciding on a simpler and more consistent way of dressing in the future.

This outfit isn’t perfect, but it’s moving towards how I want to look. Although there’s no label inside this light cream blouse I know it’s high quality as it’s silk and has French seams inside. There’s room for two mes inside it, so I’m wearing it backwards. The olive green Cheap Monday jeans were indeed cheap – a fiver from TK Maxx – but fail my quality control. The waistband sits too low on my hip, and the fabric bunches at my knees (or is that due to my skinny legs?).
