It’s not Frocks, and it’s not quite Frou Frou, but I have new specs!
As a result I’ve eschewed my usual contact lenses for the four-eyes, and embraced my square self.
Nerdy comes naturally to me – I still remember the first time someone called me a square (and I still remember being square enough to not know what they meant!). I’m a reader, a classical music listener, a watcher of Buffy/Firefly/Star Wars.
I actually wish I was a bit more adventurous – especially when it comes to my wardrobe.
As winter approaches I’ve been seeing all sorts of great new trends; coloured tights, layering, contrasting prints. The OOTD (outfits of the day) that are regularly posted over at Fatshionista and on NoMoreMumus are positively inspiring and sometimes I worry that my own wardobe suffers from ordinariness by comparison.
Still, I suppose part of what makes fashion fashion is knowing what works on your own body, in your own social circle, and with your own personality.
And for me, a lace panel top and dressy jeans fits the bill just right. And my red glasses give it all a bit of secret grooviness.
