Uniqlo Shirt

shirt - uniqlo, skirt - & other stories

 I was in Stratford last weekend getting my hair cut and ended up picking up a few new autumnal pieces for my wardrobe, including this skirt from zara, and this plaid top from uniqlo. It's really soft and easy to wear, and I can definitely see myself getting a lot of wear ou of it, tucked into skirts or with jeans.

This outfit reminded me a bit of this one from my archives from 2010. What a difference five years doesn't make! Ok the knee-socks have definitely gone - I'm definitely too old for that look - but other than that I'd totally wear that whole outfit again, and pretty much am!

 I do like looking back over my outfit archives and seeing over five years worth of outfits documented. For one I am pretty damn impressed with myself that I've kept it up for that long, but it's also interesting to see how my style has changed, and how it has stayed the same. At the moment I am feeling slightly lost fashionwise - trying to work out how to take my 20s style through into my 30s - so it's good to look back and see that familiar thread of my signature style running through right up to today.

I love that shirt! I've got an old Topshop one very similar to that and it's almost like being hugged by an old friend when I put it on again. Sometimes I think it's not about dressing for your age, but dressing for your body shape/type that means that you keep going back to the same styles and combinations - can safely say you pull off the shirt/skirt combo excellently!

I turned 30 this week, so maybe it's a good time to look back. It's way too late for tight jeans for me now, and any sight of a band tee or ripped things!
