Jeans: Embody Denim
Shoes: Em & Sprout
I’ve been having such a hard time getting frocked in the mornings that I’m starting to wonder where my mojo’s gone!
It’s partly the ironing situation (i.e. I don’t have one), and partly that I’m sick to death of my winter wardrobe and want desperately to get back into my trans-seasonal and warmer weather gear.
Mostly though, it’s that I’m not dressing for myself anymore, so I’m overthinking every item of clothing I put on my body. I’m trying extra hard to look good when I leave the house just in case I run into The Ex, the future Himself, or worst of all the Pretender to the Throne. (i.e. my arch-nemesis who I loathe, which is quite exciting because I’ve never hated anyone before.)
So I spend so much time standing in front of the wardrobe going “I don’t know!” that I end up running so late I have to simply throw on the first ensemble that presents itself to me and hurl myself out the door.
Also – the fact that I have a whole wardrobe now means that my clothes seem to be expanding at a great rate. Especially the jeans.
The ones I’m wearing today haven’t been worn for a while – actually I couldn’t even find them on Frocks & Frou Frou so they may have been shelved pre-blog! I shelved them because they just got a bit too tight but they weren’t retired because I couldn’t bear to part with my first pair of Embody Jeans. Imagine my surprise when I put on what I thought were my Svoboda skinnies turned around and realised I’d fit back into the Embody’s instead.
Here’s a bit of pre-F&FF history for you: When I bought these jeans all those years ago it was also the first time I had the hairygodmother’s amazing blunt-fringe bob cut. You can even see it because Natalie put my picture up on the Embody Website… see if you can find me!
Also, because I promised a reader I’d put more photos of my accessories up, here’s a close-up of my earrings:
