Even though my wardrobe is groaning at the seams I still have those days where I stand before my cornucopia of clothing in a towel going “I have nothing to wear”.
This is the outfit that I always end up wearing on those days (at least in winter. And autumn. And sometimes in spring)
It took me a while to come to the Boots-over-Jeans look. I think like all bigcalved girls the idea of finding a pair of boots that do up is challenging enough, without the added indignity of trying to zip them up over a layer of denim, too. Plus, the simple equation of Boots-Over-Jeans=Short-Top was a bit confronting to my cover-tummy-at-all-costs mentality.
Bugger me though, it actually works.
This vest top – bought in multiples, thank God, from Barkins (I also got it in cream) – is the most wearable vest I have in my wardrobe, and the day it falls to pieces I will cry like a baby. There’s something about the way it drapes that is just so flattering – I’m actually thinking of posting it to an etsian knitter to see if they can duplicate the pattern (on account of, all I can manage is wonky scarves)
