There’s no denying it, I am a creature of habit. I can’t help it, try as I may! Subconsciously, I gravitate towards the same fashion choices time and time again. You might have noticed: mustard, polka dots and cute collars. It won’t surprise you to hear that I own three mustard coats and well, I won’t even begin to count the amount of collars or polka dot items I own. Ahem! Moving on…
I’ve often asked myself why I own so many items of similar clothing and honestly, the only thing I can tell you to try to excuse my behaviour is to say, because they’re so versatile! As someone who owns a lot of clothing, I was recently intrigued by Hazel‘s plan to build a winter capsule wardrobe based on 37 items. It wasn’t the surreal element of wearing just 37 items during each season, it was how ethical and sustainable this sounded.
As you know, I buy a lot of clothes in charity shops. Not all, but as much as I can and I’d like to think this makes me sustainable, even if it’s in only in a small way. With so much of my wardrobe consisting of prints and bright colours, plainer clothes are sometimes very much needed!
So, when Bellfield Clothing asked if I’d like to try something from their range, I jumped at the chance to try their Yarrow dress.
Since the first snowdrops of the year have started to spring up, I’ve started to think about transitional dressing. Winter has lasted too long this year and I’m ready for change! As soon as I laid eyes on this dress, I knew that I wanted to team it with clogs and florals. I’ve layered a collared top underneath, for added kitsch of course!
