Daily Outfit: Tuesday Prep

Today I went for a slightly more preppy look than I ordinarily would, and I really think that it paid off in spades. 

I loved the look of this daily outfit, and I had several compliments as the day wore on. It's not overly fancy or really all that out-there, but I think that the conbination of colours really pulled together to make this outfit a winner.

Daily Outfit: Unintentional Edward Cullen Cosplay

A combination of the lighting and time of the day, and the colours of this thrown-together outfit, have left me feeling like I have tricked myself into Edward Cullen cosplay.

I am not ashamed to admit that I devoured the Twilight books very rapidly when they were given to me by one of my amazing girlfriends for a birthday present several years ago. I love the books to this day, for all their flaws. And, while I've always had fan-boy tendencies, but my my Twilight obsession was on a whole other level. If the books had come out when I was in High School, I am fairly certain I would have come to grips with my sexuality a whole lot sooner.

Daily Outfit: ASOS and Abyss

While placing an order for the boyfriend's birthday present recently, I decided to splurge and grabbed myself a few items at the same time. Two birds, one stone and all that.

I'd had my eyes on this perforated sweater from ASOS for a little while now, and despite the fact that I knew it wouldn't look anywhere near as good on me as it did on the ASOS model, I knew that I wanted to add it to my wardrobe. And I'm already thrilled that I did, because it's is going to be the perfect trans-seasonal piece as we move from winter into spring here in the ACT.

Daily Outfit: Rococo Underpass

I've been wearing my chinos to work a lot lately, and to be perfectly honest with you, it's got me missing my jeans.

I decided to bust out one of my least-often worn pairs of jeans today, and to pair it with a bit more of a luxe/dressed-up look on top. I love a good juxtaposition, and I'll happily make jeans the basis of just about any outfit. The shirt and necktie are both completely over-the-top patterns, and the double-breasted blazer adds a certain level of the dramatic to the look.

Daily Outfit: Blue Jeans, White Shirt

This is my first real experiment with wearing coloured denim, and also my a very rare occasion, as they're skinny coloured jeans at that!

I bought these jeans recently from ASOS, when I was buying the boyfriend his requested birthday chinos. I was actually looking for some more chinos for myself too, but I chanced upon these guys and decided to give them a go, given that they're a really nice blue, and they were insanely cheap.

Daily Outfit: Aggressive Salmon

I was bullied a lot growing up, mostly because I have always been obviously gay. Occasionally I realise just what an effect this has had on the way that I am today, and in often in really strange ways.

One of the key tips that I was given by teachers growing up to avoid being bullied, was to be less noticeable. One teacher went so far as to suggest that I stop wearing bright or patterned clothing, and only wear dull colours. It was as though she genuinely believed that the other children were not drawn to the fact that I was gay and therefore different, but rather like little T-Rex’s; they were drawn to the bright colours I was wearing.

Daily Outfit: Blue Aesthetics

When I see myself in outfits like the one I am wearing today, I feel like living my life in only shades of blue really isn’t a challenge at all.

I really respect people who have made dedicated themselves to a particular style aesthetic, as I have said many times before, and I find the wardrobes and daily style of these people infinitely more inspiring than those who will happily wear any and everything.
