It's been a very cool I am struggling a bit. I had decided to put jeans aside for a while after wearing them a lot, but I am not finding it easy.

Here are some recent looks - not all successful - and I will relate them to my Grown Up Charlies Angela Style persona and my three words which (I think) are breezy bold elegance.....

  • denim jacket with rust dress - I think the dress is bold and breezy - but not so elegant. I liked this style but would prefer it without the jacket (but it was too cold)
  • Navy and yellow - trialling the 70s style skirt and new mules. I think this is bold breezy and elegant and quite 1970s. Top only works draped, tucked or fully loose doesn't look as good.
  • Black blazer and skirt - this felt good for a work day. I think it meets all the criteria - and the Charlies Angels were into blazers when they were in PI mode....
  • All Black - this was only okay. I prefer this with lighter shoes and without the blazer. Feels a bit boring on me.
  • Denim and jumpsuit - experimented with a small scarf but ended up taking it off as small scarves rarely feel right. Still love this old jumpsuit though and it feels very me.
  • New blue sweater and white pants - It's not exciting but the colour combo and chunky sneakers make it feel braver.
  • Orange knit dress - I wear this once a year. Today is the day. Fun with the chunky sneaker. Definitely fits the persona.
  • Red white and black - I actually felt off all day. I think it skews too cool (winter rather than spring) and I was physically cold all day. I wore the black and white check tote with this. I think this would suit someone else - but I won't repeat again. It is bold, it is elegant-ish, but maybe lacking the breezy?

Eight outfits - no denim!!

I think these are quite an uneven set of outfits - and I could do with some more accessorising.
