Fall in Love…
I’m rather suddenly hating everything in my wardrobe. I blame my multiple look disorder…I never have managed to pick out just one style to focus on, rather float between lots never making a decision about where my style is going. However I see some hope…some things I picked up last year are falling rather nicely into a trend that seems to still have life in it. Some call it military, which for some inexplicable reason I can’t stand. I’ve rebranded it camping…catchy I know. Okay so the name is rubbish, but the vibe is great…Nix the epaulettes and replace with fringes (on the shoes) and a forest of greens, suedes, leathers, plaids, canvas, rope..okay basically it’s like a textural dream and there is reason enough to jump in the tent. Plus the visions of vintage girl scouts, knee socks, crumpled socks, foldovers, layers, ooh I’m all warm and fuzzy inside! And as it’s so utilitarian and masculine it should be easy to throw in those ‘unexpected features’ everyone is always banging on about, like a sweet dress with dare I say clunky shoes, fancy jewellry with a plaid shirt. And…as I was clever to pickup a few key camping trend buys last year (in the sale), I feel I’m due some sort of fashion forecasting reward…those clogs WILL be mine!
