Sparkly jumpers and glasses perched on heads.
That's how to dress for a Sunday afternoon in a up market English bar. On arrival in this establishment I immediately perched my sunners on my bonce. Yes, even though it's winter the sunglasses are out,
on everyone on women who are stylish. I had to play ball. We have high pressure in the UK at the moment weather wise. That means cold, frost and sun which is low in the sky. Sunglasses are essential. However, even those not wearing sunglasses perched their prescription glasses upon sleek hair. Oh so Cannes. Oh so Monaco.
I had dressed in an oufit prompted by my American friends. Kind of a challenge Anna, haha. Well, Anna made this so American look perfectly UK appropriate, eventually. Strangely it was with the inspiration of another American. Here's the story.
The prompt was this from Pinterest.
It was I who had suggested using a denim shirt due to my difficulties blogged here. It therefore behoove me to do this look. So I did.
On me it looked, well, inappropriate. Shirt and leggings, at my age! No!
I also felt too bunched up around the neck.
I swapped the leggings for skinny black jeans and played with the scarf to make it more a wrap. I also half tucked the shirt. Now, wrapped scarves slip off so what to do?
Here my inspiration came from Jodie. Her blog here explores brooches on accessories. Well, I have brooches and hardly wear the things. But I could use a brooch to pin my wrapped scarf. I did.
Coat, gloves, sunglasses and Emu boots later we went to explore a new bar in town.
I wasn't in a sparkly jumper but I did have the foresight to wear sunglasses, especially to put them on my head.
And I do like to feel that where I failed in sparkle I succeeded with my leopard print bag.
