A Touch of Elvis: Blue Suede Shoes & Military Trousers

A bit of time travelling's going on here... this is an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago but didn't get round to posting. You may be surprised to learn it was a thrown-together outfit - and somehow ended up a little matchy-matchy (shoes and sweater; socks, other sweater, nails and watch; hair and belt). I still like it though - I think this may be my favourite kind of outfit: warm layers, with a leather jacket, loose trousers and comfy heels.

The trousers were described on the ASOS website as "military" style, so with the blue suede shoes I immediately thought Elvis. Not a bad influence at all, though I'll give the iconic white jumpsuit a miss I think ;)

So I'm finishing up for 2012 - thank you to all my wonderful followers for your unending support: I really appreciate all the lovely comments and flattery passed my way, you've really made my year. Hope you all have a great New Year... I'll be in fancy dress on New Year's Eve, so be sure to pop back in the first week of January for pictures of what I wore!

Here's to 2013 :)

    You are a big inspiration for me. And your tips on photography helped me a lot when I started my own little blog. Especially with the sizes of the photos and stuff like that. Happy new year and I will keep on following you.

  16. I think that matchiness works so well because of your hair. The color contrast is wonderful. You are the real deal - style with a notch up. Way up. Happy New Year to you, and well-deserved success.
