On this day of loooove overload… I wanted to switch it slightly to the importance of of Self Love… (yeah, I know, but) to find/allow/give yourself TIME I guess might be considered one of the greatest forms of self love?
To allow yourself the time to have the time to do… oh a thousand things… have a bath, go to the supermarket ALONE (a big thing, when the smalls are very small)… to have time to read more than half a page of a book before falling asleep, to have time to think about the novel you always wanted to write, or even that blog.
Or even have time to go through your wardrobe and figure out who you might want to be in the next day/week/month… let alone figuring out what to wear with this very weathery weather we’ve been having.
When time is short and we need a ‘new-ness’ fix sometimes ‘just’ an accessory can be the think to pull an outfit together to make it feel more current, especially if it feels like we’ve been wearing jumpers for an eternity, and don’t see it changing any time soon.
So perhaps a belt could work, to cinch in the oversized jumper now, and a white shirt later – this reversible leather belt from & Other Stories, £35
Another flash of colour could be got with this large scarf from Zara, £15.99 – love this zing.
I’d want to wear this scarf with a striped top (quel surprise), this is from H&M, £12.99. (No, it wasn’t the plan to put clothes in this blog… couldn’t help it.)
I’ve worn and worn an leopard print belt that I got from M&S all winter, John Lewis have this version in now for £20. (The leopard works brilliantly with the stripes above… #justsayin.)
This Khaki tote bag, Kin at John Lewis £49, is a winner, I am definitely going to check this out in the flesh… its about the size I need to humph the amount of stuff I normally carry about.
This bag would work well with the belt above, when you don’t need lots of shouty accessories together… Kin, £55. Size is everything.
I’m not ready to embrace spring in the current climate, but would happily take on any of the above items to incorporate into my outfits… Let’s feel the love…
