Once in a blue moon, I’ll rifle through my wardrobe and magically come out with something that not only fits but makes me feel really good too. I recently watched a video with real life angel Leandra Medine, and she said ‘you should have a wardrobe which you can pick things from blindfolded’- and I suppose that’s what happened with this.
Since reordering my wardrobe from colour to category (a mini revolution for someone pretty slow to the organisational party), it’s become a helluva lot easier to see what I have (opposed to where they fit on the Pantone chart)- and after pulling out an outfit in a bit of a rush, this snooker-player-esque blouse and special little pinafore are what came out…
After picking this M.i.H dress up in Selfridges in Manchester earlier this year for an almighty £20 (I couldn’t believe it either)- I’ve been waiting for it to finally become warm enough to take it for a spin. Although I’ve had something similar in my wardrobe in the past, the fact this has buttons (poppers plus sitting down and an appetite are a recipe for trouble) makes it total justified in my opinion, and although there’s perhaps a few degrees to go until I can really utilise it’s cost per wear (ahem), I know it’s a surefire summer staple.
