Todays post is more of a ‘stretching your wardrobe out’ theme, as I re-work a couple of heavily worn items in my wardrobe. Last weekend I headed to West Fest – a little street festival in West Didsbury, near my home. The area is famous for independent restaurants and bars with a few pretty shops too and the businesses all get involved with pop up street stalls and music. It was a glorious day and I was feeling in the festival spirit so I dug out an old maxi that I don’t like the top of anymore and layered it up with a chambray shirt (also seen here.)
I’m not sure if the knotted shirt is still a bit nineties or just hasn’t made it back over the pond yet as I see it on lots of fashion bloggers in the US. Either way it worked for me, oversized sunnies, my ikat bag and flip flops completing the look.
I was really pleased to make an item that isn’t to my taste anymore work, not just for what I had in mind but nodding to the trend for maxi skirts without actually splashing out on one. (An item I thought more this summer than ever, a little impractical in summer showers. After all, no-one wants a soggy (hem) bottom.) Outfit sorted, I dedicated myself to enjoying the array of food and drink on offer whilst basking in the Indian Summer sun.
What are you re-working and re-wearing right now?
