I have to admit I didn’t actually check this outfit in the mirror before I left the house at all. This completely goes against my rule of always making sure your outfit works in a full-length mirror. The tartan scarf and suede booties were already downstairs by the front door (not put away from the previous wear, tut tut), and I grabbed the longline camel blazer without trying it on with the rest of the outfit.
But somehow it all worked together, and I’m so pleased it did – it was one of those ‘I-really-hope-this-works-because-I-love-all-the-pieces-I’ve-put-together’ outfits…! The finishing touches that I love were the classic driving gloves (people should wear this style more I think) and the gorgeous Marc Jacobs cat eye sunglasses I received from the Sunglasses Shop. The periwinkle blue colour was a lovely contrast to all the warm tones – I think I’ll be wearing these throughout spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Do you ever throw together outfits without checking them in the mirror first – and do you find they work? Or not…?! Do share in the comments!
