First up, I’d like to say that this is my first outfit from my new flat, and the lighting situation is driving me nuts; I’ve got one very small window, and a very bright harsh overhead light. I was gong mad while taking these photos, so I’m apologising for the horrid lighting, and I’m going to try to find a solution. Anyway. So, anyone that’s been following this blog for a while may recognise a lot of this outfit, since I posted a very similar one, way back ago here. I doubt many of you would have picked up on that though! Anyway, I’m re-using this outfit for two reasons; firstly, since moving abroad, my wardrobe has gotten a lot more limited, since I just can’t have all my stuff travelling around with me, so there’s plenty of clothing items back home that I now haven’t worn in a year. And secondly, because it’s fun to mix and match, and re-work outfits in different ways, rather than repeating the same combinations all the time. I’ve got a different pair of jeans this time (those acid wash ones wore out a while ago), and switched out the boots (though I do still have those) for more relaxed Converse. And I recently got a new handbag, which was long overdue! My old one was falling to pieces, but I hadn’t been able to find a new one I liked enough to give it up. I’m playing around with several new pieces of jewellery too, which I picked up on my summer travels, at markets in Vietnam (the earrings) and Laos (the necklace).
