Slightly beatnik, quite androgynous


Sweater: F+F similar, Shirt: New Look, Trousers: Topshop similar, Bowler hat: ASOS similar, Scarf: F+F, Glasses: eBay




Top finger rings: ASOS, Other rings: ASOS / Boots / Next, Bracelets: My christening bracelet / ASOS, Watch: gift, Nails: Barry M Matt White (base coat) / OPI Isn't That Precious? (two top coats)


Brogues: Office similar, Socks: Accessorize similar



I've realised I pretty much have two kind of looks: either quite girly in skirts and heels (see here and here), or the other extreme: boyish in mens hats and flat shoes (see here and here).

The only thing I prefer on myself when wearing these sorts of androgynous looks - which, by the way, I love - is still having girly hair. If I had short hair (or styled my hair more severely) I'd personally feel too masculine. Though I'm always envious of the type of face that suits those pixie crops (think Michelle Williams or Halle Berry): I would so have a crop like that if it suited me, and still go all out with the androgynous look.

This is one of my favourite casual outfits that I've worn recently; comfortable and warm - not forgetting a bit of colour and a dash of quirk ;)

And don't forget: March is a week today - in theory that means Springtime!
=oh the relief=

  1. I think you're right about the hair thing when sporting an androgynous look. I am very tall and have to amp up the femininity when wearing a men's look. Otherwise, I fear I will end up looking too much like a guy.

    Love the new red glasses - they are new, right?

    1. I don't think there's the remotest chance of you looking like a guy no matter what you wore, Adrienne...!!! But we're on the same wavelength about the hair thing :)) Yes the glasses are newish - worn only once before on the blog (26 Jan). Thanks my lovely! C xoxo

  19. Catherine, you look so awesome! It's kind of an eclectic artist look :) Love the pops of pink with the scarf and shoes, and as always I love that bowler hat. You've convinced me that I need to get one for myself.
