^ Thursday and Sunday. My outerwear was feeling a bit glum and this House of Holland scarf on sale at Browns Focus screamed at me, promising to brighten up my winter. And I tend to like sartorial pieces that scream.
^ Friday and last Sunday. Dressing for special occasions is definitely a minimalist challenge. Friday I went to an immersive showing of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and would have loved to have rocked a quirky varsity jacket. Last week we had Burns Night supper in college, and to my horror I had no “black tie” dresses, so I threw on the same dress I wear nearly every day (see above), amped up the accessories and buckled up the super-tall wedges. Both looks worked out in the end!
