What a week! Have had to 'dress up' for a few days which takes me out of my comfort zone. I have slipped into a skinny jean/knee high boots rut over the past 18 months and so to dress for a meeting or event has me shivering because it means no jeans - but I threw that rule book out the window and wore smart dark blue jeans and a blazer on Thursday.
I am envious of those that can pull off smart casual chic - I just don't ever feel that comfortable in it. That said, I did feel good on Thursday with the cream blazer, dark jeans look. However, it was not warm and I was outside for hours (not even my thermal vest could protect me from the SPRING elements).
Here are some looks from the past week and also some gorgeous women from Avenue 57
My comfort zone ... I do love a good chunky knit!
Have never worn leather trousers in the day before but Kat from Does My Bum Look 40 showed me the light earlier in the week, so I just copied her blatantly!
My lovely outfit for a styling event I was helping out at locally. Shoes were bloody uncomfortable after running around so changed mid afternoon for flats.
Sometimes simple is best. I took my inspiration for this from My Fashion Life Has Just Begun
Who doesn't love a good poncho? I have a few and this is by far my favourite one
A touch of the Sue Perkins for this - a black blazer always makes me feel like her!
And onto the stars of the show - looks on Avenue57 that have inspired me this week
Looking stunning in her new Dorothy Perkins lace dress
No-one I know ... NO-ONE pulls off the denim shirt look in such style. I have a little girl crush on this gorgeous lady and I want her whole wardrobe.
So jealous of her being able to pull the brogue look off to perfection
So in love with this coat, what a colour
What takes you out of your comfort zone ... or don't you ever leave it?
