She was 5 ft 4 (1 meter 65) and I am 5 ft 74 (1 meter 75). Oversized stuff always looks cute on small girls.
So why didn’t I realize that it would not necessarily look good on me?
I have no idea. Total blanc, I suppose.
Apart from that, she wore the jacket in black and I decided to go “for something different” and chose grey.
Grey is not my colour. Not at all.
Boxy, wide, long jackets are not flattering for my figure.
I have bought so many things to make this jacket work, it would have been a lot cheaper if I had thrown in the towel immediately and gave it to my niece. I am sure she agrees as she loves this jacket.
Here we go…. (they are photos from some time ago, so some of them are not the best).
The above combination was not half bad in my opinion.
To me, you can wear anything with jeans. Combined with high heeled grey boots and the blouse, I felt I did well. The comments were contradictory. Some thought the world of it, some thought it was wrong to add such a feminine blouse or to wear it with jeans. I wasn’t sure.
The grey boyfriend jacket outfit with the hat is my favourite combination. But not everybody likes (off)white boots over trousers with mature woman. It this too much cheergirl-style? Could be. What do you think?
I love the hat, but you don’t always wear it, especially not indoors. I did once and had such a laugh with one of my colleagues. She had the funniest break-down speech ever and ended by saying: “Never mind dear, you know what they say, it is the inner you that counts”. By that time my tummy was aching from laughing.
What can I say of the above? I tried to add a colour that did suit me. But I don’t like this combination, although I have no idea what is wrong with it.
You will see more of my trials with this jacket in the near future.
