Over the past few years I feel like I've developed a good idea of what shapes and colours of clothing I like and what suits me. This has helped me to be a bit more ruthless with my wardrobe, in an effort to keep only the things I love and that look good on me to help me develop a wardrobe which is well worn and efficient (for want of a better word).
But sometimes it's nice to mix things up a bit.
After I won the World Cup sweepstake in work this year, I decided to spend the money on a pair of Swedish Hasbeens in their sale. I do love a clog, and decided I'd like a pair which weren't open toe, so I could wear them in Autumn/Winter but were also in a colour different from the Lotta from Stockholm pairs I already have (red and tan). These are the ones I went for:
I think they will look great with blues and dark denim or printed skirts, and they are so pretty and cheerful that I really enjoy wearing them.
I was buying wool for a jumper today and very nearly purchased a gorgeous burnt orange colour, another shade that I don't really have in my wardrobe. In the end I went with a sea blue/green but I would love to use that orange for something else.
Have you broken your own rules recently?
