The shape under the trousers

Suggested trouser shape.
The side seam is at a strange angle, the wide trouser leg maks this slightly.
I think this is a forward tilted hip.

Which boots work best with my hair

I currently prefer the first pair over the other two.
The middle one seems a little darker and I already have some dark brown boots, the last pair is perhaps a little too warm and has a lot of detailing which detracts from the smooth lines.

More dressy outfits

 Black draped dress with black tights and black heels
 Burgundy party dres with burgundy knee high stretch boots
Red blouse with ruffles, red belt, animal print skirt, black tights and wedge shoes. Wore this one to work.

Gold top

Maybe better with wider legged trousers, tucked in with a belt.

Burgundy Cardigan

I already had the shoes and jewellery but the cardigan is a recent ourchase.
Should untuck the top so more of it shows (mentioned before).
Need to lengthen the necklace a bit so it hangs down lower. (Need to find a source for some chain).

Trying phone camera indoors

Phone picture, but not showing any detail sadly.
Animal print knit skirt, dark brown scoop neck silk jersey top, purple jersey cardigan (all sewn by me). Brown tights and shoes. Amber and purple necklace, purple earrings.
The skirt is slightly shorter and tighter than the brown one from a while ago. It rides up quite a bit when sitting at work. Wasn't too bad I suppose.

Day 27: Wear Flowers

Wear flowers: I'm not really a flowers person so I've chosen a leaf print cowl neck top with my brown tweed trouser suit, a brooch in the shape of a flower (the nearest I could get) and orange leather gloves.
Is it too much brown?

Day 26: Feature Earrings

Feature Earrings: I normally only wear quite small earrings. I have a short/broad neck and wide jaw. These don't show well due to my wide grin and odd angle. It was dark and raining outside. I need to work out somewhere to take indoor shots.

Red leather jacket: styling thoughts

I have an expensive soft leather jacket. Its red. Its lovely but I don't wear it much because I find it hard to make outfits with and to know what to wear it for. It has a stand up collar which can be worn up or folded back. I am trying to make some outfits with it.
I think today I am going to try it with dark wash bootcut jeans and a navy/red/grey striped top.

Other comments:
-It would be great with blue and white, denim
-What a lovely jacket. I also immediately thought blue jeans. I think you are warm coloured so maybe a beige coloured top, or purple is nice with red. Finish with some ankle boots. 

Day 24: Style a skirt

I really felt like me in this outfit.

Dark brown jersey pencil skirt falls just below the knee. Worn with brown leather tall boots.
Bronze colour necklace and earrings work with the ring detail on the orange top.
I had to walk to another building for a workshop and it was very comfortable.

Day 23: Wear a print

This is a blouse that survives the wardrobe purges but I don't wear a lot.
Is it too dark for me or OK?
Worn with navy trouser suit with slimmer legs.
Lighting terrible as it was getting dark by the time I got home from work.

Chunky amber necklace and amber earrings.
The print is quite small scale (too small for me?). It contains navy, rust, coral, medium brown, dark brown, camel and off white which are all in my palette.

Day 22: Wear a gift

Wear a gift - lovely starfish earrings from - from DBF.

Maybe an outer column would look better.

Day 21: Neutrals

 Not liking the blouse untucked
 Best with the jacket open
Not too bad buttoned.

Day 20: Lipstick and eyeshadow

BB cream, 'your lips but better' colour lipstick, ivory and brown eyeshadows. Early hence maniacal grin.
Green eye, green shirt, wet hair.
Eyebrow appt for next Friday evening!
