How lucky am I! Two in a row. Two wonderful outfit inspirers. This time Laurie of Vanity and Me was my muse. When Laurie posted this look a couple of weeks ago I immediately earmarked it for my next casual Friday in the office outfit.
I dug out my boot cut jeans, last used, but freshly laundered, for gardening. I did try my straights but honestly I've put on 5 lbs over the last few weeks and they felt decidedly uncomfortable. A clue was when Mr Him said 'you're filling those nicely.' I took that as 'your bum looks big.'
Laurie wore bootcut jeans. There was my answer.
I had to swap my kitchen sink contents of my work bag to this old brown leather Boden shopper to replicate Laurie. I know, it looks huge, but big bags are in, aren't they! Plus I needed to take in my lunch.
Addition of brown boots and brown belt. Like Laurie my shirt has no gaping closures. Mine are called safety pins. Handy gadgets. My jacket is Marks & Spencer as is Laurie's. I find them so practical being washable.
It was not sunny. I couldn't add the glasses, sadly.
