Do you see a whole outfit on someone else and want to recreate the look? Do you have a “theme” in mind and build from there? Or do you build your outfits around one piece?
I think I probably use all of these at times, but most commonly I start with one thing that I want to wear and build around it.
This outfits inspiration started with this vintage scarf clip. It belonged to Mr Chicks grandmother and came to me in a cute snakeskin box. I’ve been wanting to wear it for a while but I haven’t been able to make it fit. On a casual outfit it looked to dressy and on a smart oufit it looked too prim. Then whilst looking for ways to keep ridiculously overgrown fringe out of my eyes I tried clipping it to a scarf in my hair.
The look made me feel like I was heading off on a cruise, so I teamed it with a breton stripe top. I rarely wear jeans, but for a trip to the local pub to play the quiz machine and drink pints of beer it seemed like the best option.
Not the most exciting outfit in the world, but even jeans and a T shirt need thinking about a little bit….
