Getting all dressed up is great fun. I love vintage and retro dresses with fantastic prints or teaming that perfect shirt with a sharp pair of trousers. But sometimes there are days when it’s just all too much effort and all you want to do is sling on jeans and a t shirt. Today I am having one of those days. I would like you to imagine that I am sat at the laptop tapping away elegantly dressed in a 50s summer dress complete with petticoat and heels, but I’m not, in fact I’m still in my pyjamas (at 11am! Nooo!) But when I do get dressed and venture out into the rain I shall be making sure no one knows I can’t be bothered today with the addition of a few old favourite vintage accessories.
A good bag, belt, maybe a scarf, can transform a boring old outfit into something exciting and glamorous. At least to the casual observer.
Bad Hair Day? Get a hat! On days when you can’t even pluck up the energy to wash your hair this fantastic 1940s dark brown velvet beret, just £18 from Candy Says will make sure you keep looking stylish!
Every girl needs to take their handbag with them, so if you can’t be bothered today, why not grab a statement bag to keep all your essentials together for instant style points. This seriously cute red and blue 1960s handbag is from Damn Good Vintage and costs $40.
Of course, accessories have their place in a well thought out, glamorously put together outfit too, but I can’t be the only one who can’t always be bothered? Or am I!?
