Phew, first real outfit post after the big hiatus - what can I say? I missed blogging.
In the last couple of months I've rarely worn something exciting, only jeans and shirt combos with boots and sneakers, so to warm up for blogging regularly again I chose this simple comfy look for the re-entry.
I don't know if it's just because of the winter weather or maybe also because I at least needed the feeling of comfiness when everything else was shit during the breakup, but my style has simplified itself a lot lately.
I'm back to the roots so to speak, to casual comfy looks, to bring other aspects of my appearance more into focus again, like make-up and hair. On the one hand it's because I've lost some weight this year and feel more self-confident without concealing things, on the other hand it's definitely also because I define myself differently now. Living in a relationship for a long time makes you define yourself by the other person to a certain extent, but now that I don't have this person anymore my style automatically changes and I start defining myself by other things again, like my taste in music, my hobbies, my friends. This makes me want to underline certain aspects of me that I put into the background before.
So this is what I look like most days at the moment: plaid shirts, cardi, skinnies, boots. Sometimes a hat too.
Probably pretty boring for many of you, but that's what I feel good in.
I will never stop loving plaid shirts for they are so cool and versatile and available in so many colours and fits. Actually not boring at all if you combine them with different stuff. And this is my very favourite plaid shirt which cost me ridiculous 3 bucks at a crappy thrift store - simple people can be satisfied with simple things, right? ;)
What do you think of plaid shirts by the way?
Wardrobe staple or nerdy no-go?
Lumberjack love or mechanical engineer uniform?
Until next post,
