One of the best things about fashion is how rapidly it changes, there is always something new and exciting on the scene and, unlike so many other things, fashion never stays the same for long! However, when it comes to buying your wardrobe, this isn’t always a good thing – especially if you’re like me, who has a serious case of ‘last year dread’. You can have the most gorgeous dress from last year, worn once, with absolutely nothing wrong with it…yet when an event comes along, of course you automatically want something new! I’m terrible for this, but I certainly can’t afford to buy something new for every new occasion, and definitely when it comes to everyday wear, I have to recycle some bits from the last few years!
Being Petite, I meet the same problems every year and my annual nightmares include Coats, Jeans, Trousers, Skirts, Dresses…actually you know what, pretty much everything! Hunting for work trousers is always pretty difficult and at this time of year, it starts to get a bit cold for skirts! But, of course, I haven’t managed to find ANY smart work trousers in Petite. Honestly I’m not lying. ASOS had a really great selection in their Petite section, but of course, when I got there, everything had sold out! Typical! So, in this outfit, I’ve had to go back to these black trousers from River Island 2011!
Sometimes you just have to go with items from many years ago when all else fails! I bought this white jumper from ASOS last year and love it, its perfect for this time of year when we’re transitioning between summer and autumn, it’s nice and thin so can fit under jackets or over shirts, and I don’t feel I’m quite at the knitted jumper stage. Soon though, if it doesn’t warm up! The coat is Topshop last year too...some serious recycling going on here...but needs must! I always love pairing black and white, it’s a colour scheme that I think suits me really well, being brunette, white always makes my hair stand out and black is all time favourite of mine, I find it really slimming and always feel confident in it!
