Daily Outfit: Dressed But Not Impressive

I am counting my lucky stars that I wore this outfit today, as I had a surprise meeting concerning a job that I had applied for, and it could have been significantly uncomfortable had I been wearing some of my less-corporate clothing.

Daily Outfit: Professor Salmon

It was probably a little ambitious, in hindsight, to try and ease myself into wearing the very collegiate/preppy material, tweed; while simmultaneously trying to get my money's worth from a shirt I hate.

All I got all day were Professor Salmon vibes.

Daily Outfit: Intergalactic

I want to get back into the swing of kicking off the week with a bang in the sartorial sense, and so I decided I’d go a little intergalactic with this daily outfit.

This beautiful necklace is by the incredibly talented Alicia Hannah Naomi, and has been a staple of mine since I purchased it a few years back. It never fails to draw attention to itself, and it is a supremely satisfying thought to have a nebula strung about your neck while you do you day to day business.

Daily Outfit: Dark Lines

I am having such a serious love-affair with the stripe, that I didn't even realise that it was happening.

I've always been much more inclined towards checks, loving the various styles and sizes of the grids that they make. Lately however I find that my eye is drawn towards lines upon lines upon lines. I am dreaming of a wardrobe of shirts in blue and white lines of all lengths and widths. I want to dress in an outfit made up of striped garments, every piece a different celebration of the humble stripe.

Daily Outfit: Boy, Man or Kiddult?

I sometimes feel like I am a boy in men's clothing.

It's not that I feel young, but more that I feel like I look ridiculous in clothes that I have always thought as menswear. A suit, for example, or a shirt and tie. These are garments that are in fact gender and age neutral, but which I have labelled in my mind as men's clothing, and when I wear them I sometimes feel like a little kid playing dress-ups with his dad's clothes. I'm not really an adult, even at twenty-eight years of age, and I feel like a bit of a fraud turning up to work dressed like one.

Daily Outfit: Uniformity

Uniforms are something that get a lot of reference in fashion, over and over again.

It is sort of hysterical when you consider the fact that for those that have to wear a uniform, be it for school, for work or for a sport; it tends to have very negative connotations. A polo shirt, for example, is something that I have been loath to wear until very recently, because as soon as I put one on I remember either high school, or working retail.

Neither are experiences that I am in any way interested in reliving as an adult, which likely explains my aversion to wearing them.

Daily Outfit: A Winning Combination

There is a 60-70% probability that I have worn this exact daily outfit in recent history. I’m almost certain of it in fact. And while I could look back through the Blog archives to confirm this point, I suppose, I don’t want to tarnish my feelings towards this winning combination.
