Day By Day

You may have noticed last week that I now have an Instagram icon on my blog. Last summer, I attempted to define both my warm weather style and the items of clothing that I wore more frequently and felt best in. The single most valuable tool in that quest was the month of daily outfit photos that I took at that time. They allowed me to see at a glance what I was ACTUALLY wearing, what felt good in and which combinations worked for me aesthetically. I decided that I would repeat this for winter and so have started taking daily outfit photos. I am posting them on Instagram in case anyone has an interest in how the individual pieces I show on this blog translate into real life.

At the beginning of winter, I had a shopping list that included some winter tops that I could wear without layers or scarves. I ended up buying three, two of which I have shown you already. This is the last. I especially like it because my husband urged me to buy it when he saw me try it on, and it remains a favourite of his. It is felted wool, so it is warm and has a soft, sculptural appearance. The pleat at the front not only gives me some texture across my chest but also give me a hint of waist definition, which I always enjoy.
I have reached a point now of feeling really happy with my winter wardrobe. I feel confident when I choose my outfit in the morning that I have items that will go together well and that I will feel good wearing. I am so happy to have reached this point and it has been fun for me to take photos every morning and see how everything works together day by day. How are you feeling about your wardrobe as you approach the end of the season? Have you had any unexpected hits of misses?

  3. Sharon, I think you have very quickly become a master of proportion understanding how certain shapes work for you. I am watching and learning. On another point, how did you add your instagram icon...desite being quite computer literate I am at a loss! Hope you don't mind me asking:)

  4. Thanks, Deborah. I don't think I am as instinctive at it as you, but I feel like I am slowly getting there! To add the Instagram icon, go to the Layout section of your blog, click on the "Add a gadget" hyperlink for the spot you want to place your icon and and copy the icon code (from the "Badges" section of your Instagram account) into the box. Good luck! Let me know if any of that doesn't make sense :)
