What I Wore In a Week
A Week in May
There's no Fashun Here! This is regular person clothing, comfort is key and the lifestyle is very casual. Some of these outfits were not seen in public. In no way do I believe that I am sharing actual outfit inspiration. This is not glamour, this is not fun, this is not unique. This is comfort, simplicity and this is me figuring out that is all I want and need. Oh yes, I want to look nice (and 'nice' is just fine with me as opposed to amazing or stunning or stylish) I want to look recognizably Shawna. I want to get dressed and forget about it.
I've got the body I've got, the budget I've got, the time, interest and abilities that I've got. Profound, isn't it? No outfit is going to give me a tiny waist or a J-Lo booty and happiness doesn't come of it even if it did. Happiness comes from being myself, doing what I love, being with the people I love. If I look like a busty rectangle in a pretty blouse or a slouchy pair of jeans, that's just fine.

A stay home, sit on the sofa, knit and read sort of outfit.
rejected this week: 3 inches above the knee denim skirt- try with tights in autumn/winter
Activities outside of being home alone were grocery shopping, a couple hours at a café alone, an hour at a café with my parents, son over for dinner and hanging out, Mother's Day visit to my Mum at her house, dinner out at pub with son and parents.
Accessories used this week were mainly earrings, as it's been warm and I've not wanted to wear a scarf. For going out to dinner I used the small leather bag instead of my usual big cross body satchel style bag. My regular cardigan is a very fine merino wool, in a taupe colour and gets worn often. Here I am wearing it and looking glum. Tired would be the accurate assumption.
What looks black is dark brown. I'd like to replace the watch strap.
The earrings top, right, are my default and I sometimes wear them for days on end including while I sleep.
I have clothing items still unworn and different combinations as yet unused. I'm guessing I would not have to repeat an outfit in less than three weeks, though wanting to is entirely possible. I could live in the mauve dress.
