Instagram inspiration this week…
My personal outfit and style posts can be found on my Instagram account @5.foot.style so if you’re interested in seeing what I wear on a daily basis please follow me!
Man, was the 13 going on 30 capsule wardrobe a definite challenge! But I’m so pleased I was able to pull it off. It definitely shows that with a bit of creativity you can have a minimalist wardrobe, and that you don’t need to have a wardrobe bursting at the seams to create outfits that fit your life.
I did it! Who would have thought, 30 outfits from only 13 items of clothing? It was DEFINITELY a challenge, believe me, but it did get my stylist head into gear to create some practical yet stylish outfits that could work in a variety of situations.
The jumpsuit makes another (and last!) appearance for Outfit 29 of the 13 going on 30 challenge, and assuming that one didn’t sweat excessively in the previous wear of it, then it’s OK to wear again.
Print on petite ladies such as myself is a bit hit and miss. Generally, the bigger the print, the more overwhelming it is on women who are a bit vertically challenged, especially if it’s longer piece of clothing like a maxi dress of maxi skirt.
Prints are a great way to draw attention to a part of the body that you’re proud of. It also works to enhance an area that might need a little “help”.
Are you a silver person? Gold person? White gold person? Rose gold person? Some people prefer a particular metal over others when it comes to their jewellery; my aunt, for example, wears nothing but gold.
Apparently, if anyone knows how to cuff shirt sleeves, it’s Jenna Lyons. And of course, there is a tutorial on how to cuff shirt sleeves the J.Crew way:
This outfit palette has some of my favourite colours – khaki and navy. I don’t normally wear green, but the right shade of olive or khaki works so well as a neutral colour and goes with pretty much anything.
