I recently took on a freelance writing job which is being slotted in between my 9-5. I am so busy that this morning I even forgot to wash my hair (amen to dry shampoo!) so I’m not one for over thinking my outfit before I rush out the front door with the promise that I’ll grab breakfast on the way to work (I never do).
So why did I decide to write a post about fashion I hear you screaming at me? Simply because I can, and that I’m sure there are plenty other people out there sat in the same boat.
So grab an oar and start rowing with me because we’re going on an adventure of self-discovery as I explore “practical” fashion.
A/n Images are sourced from Pinterest under the search term “practical fashion”.
First of all, how much of the day do you wear a jacket? If your idea of a practical walk to work involves wearing a white coat and intending it to stay white then you clearly do not have to travel on the tube or any sort of public transport or expect to get caught out in the rain. Furthermore, who thought heels were practical? I wore heels to work once and had blisters for a week!
Even slim models look like they have wide hips in skirts like this. What chance do I have?
Part of this shirt is yearning to be on safari taming a lion while the other half is dying to play xylophone in an indie electro punk band in Gonzo’s Tea Bar. Funky!
I think she has shares in Daz. Plus who’s kitchen is that tidy? I have kitchen envy more than clothing envy from looking at this picture.
Ah yes. Let me just channel my inner Elizabeth Bennet.
Another classic. Will obviously be donning this outfit when I attend my next hula class.
This image is giving me so much anxiety. What if the poor girl is biking when her top falls down and she doesn’t have a free hand to pull it back up? Maybe it’s just my flat chest that can’t handle tops like this. Maybe.
Finally, an outfit I would actually wear! Even the handbag is a normal working size. Phew. Good luck finding your keys in the depths of that bag!
