After my post about the Zara heels, I took a genuine dive into my newly constructed walk-in wardrobe and found some more of those highstreet gems. What are your absolute favorite affordable pieces? Here is few of what I found:
Angora Sweater, H&M Trend (I also have this in black, it is amazing!); Top, H&M Trend, T-Shirt, American Apparel.
Now that we have a scooter to navigate around the city, this hoodie tied around my waist was more of a functional choice than a fashionable one, since higher speed means more wind which equals instant cold. Yes, I could have easily put on an angora jumper or a snugly coat, but spring sprung a while ago in my books and I might as well try to live up to it – despite the fact that the temperature is still not cooperating.
All this tying makes me wonder though, was I ever a non-functional dresser anyway? I mean, apart from wearing uncomfortable heels every now and then and a belt because it is pretty rather than wearing it as a necessity, I very rarely wear things that do not have an obvious role. Hence the minor amount of details and the non-schmuck kind of way that I dress…I guess.
This does not mean I get dressed just for the sake of getting dressed – exceptions aside (forgive me as I work from home and my pj’s are so damn comfy) – I do like to get dressed as if I am going to wipe the delivery woman off her feet while I sign for my packages. Hmm, maybe I will take this as a personal challenge, to add a little something of non-functionality to my daily wear-ables.
