I love finding a favourite accessory that I’d almost forgotten about – and this multicoloured scarf-come-wrap was one of those items. It’s so large I can’t store it with all my other scarves so I tend to forget I have it. This outfit started with the scarf as my starting point, and the bright cashmere sweater and the blue leopard skinnies were the nearest things that were clean and coordinated to create a cosy but bright look. (Yes I will admit: some outfits happen only because the individual items were what I had to hand that were clean at the time…!)
I bought these black leather ankle boots from New Look following a several-months-long search for the perfect pair for everyday wear. Most of the ones I’d found either had a very skinny heel (not practical for walking) or were too low (not what I was after) – these are the perfect combination of solid heel, reasonably high, with some interesting detail. Added bonus: they are incredibly comfy.
What about you – do you ever create an outfit simply because it’s all you had clean at the time…? I hope it’s not just me 😉
Only three sleeps till Christmas – hope you’re all geared up for the big day! I’ll be scheduling a few posts over the break, so Not Dressed As Lamb won’t seem totally deserted… do come back on Christmas Eve and then again on Boxing Day for an outfit post or two 🙂
