The "go to" outfit....

Do you have an outfit that, without fail, makes you feel great  not matter when you wear it?

An outfit that makes you feel the closest to the real you or makes you feel the real you?

Well I have! and this is it...


Shoes: These are a hidden platform suade court, bought in Penneys for about €20. Truth be know, these are a bit on the high side so I wear them when there is the minimal amount of walking to be done. I just love the colour. I am a devil for colour courts with a hidden platform. Even though lately I am out of practice walking in them.

Jeans: I am a boot cut or flare leg girl at heart. They suit me better than any other shape jeans. These are my all time favourite. These Seven for all man kind jeans I bought in the States a year ago. They are my perfect fit jeans and I love the lenght. I like jeans to go to the ground when wearing my shoes. Hubbie can't understand this as he says you can't see your shoes but I love the look.

Blazer: I love blazers. I have many, just for wearing with this outfit. Even though this is beige, and I am not a beige lover, I just had to have it when I spotted it. €40 in Swamp. It has lovely blue striped lining.I tend to buy blazers in a size that doesn't close in the front. I never wear them closed. But I don't like it looking stupid on me either. e.g too small.

Vest tops: I love vest tops. I like the classic vertical rib and I own so many colours. This one is nice. It has ruffles on the bust line to make the bust look bigger. This one was a few euro. I wear these alot so I lik to spend a few euros on them so they last.

Neck Scarves: I have so many, I really do. This is also from Penneys, €4. I have so many that Hubbie said I need to have a special space to hang them.Like this on with the neon pink!

Red Lippy: I love red lipstick. I don't have it on now but I would wear a red stain or gloss with this. I would also wear a long chain....

Well there you have it. My signiture outfit.I always feel my best in this outfit or a variation of this outfit.


Slán!

  4. I think it's a lovely outfit and I'll tell you why - it's exactly the type of thing I used to wear to work! Smart but not over the top but extremely flattering. I was allowed jeans in my office and very few people were wearing suits by the time I left. I have to confess to not having many blazers now - something I hope to rectify this year.

    Bootcuts and straight legs are the most flattering style of jeans on me probably - I have one pair of Diesel bootcuts in my wardrobe which I will not part with.

    1. Thanks Sue, I tried more pics like this for posts but I just am not happy on this side of the camera, prefer taking the pics of other things/people and not of me!

  5. Oh, I like this :)
    I'm not good with heels, but sometimes I feel I need to try harder. When I reach my WW goal (look- I said when, not if. This is progress) I'm going to buy a pair of decent jeans that make me feel as good as you look!
