Skinny Jeans And A Simple Roll Neck Jumper
Can you believe it’s almost February? I’m losing track of how fast everything is literally going, especially when I shot a lot of outfit photos in advance to prepare for the awful winter I was expecting us to have here in the UK. I’m glad I did as I’ve had one outfit in particular planned for about 3-4 weeks and haven’t been able to wear it at all due to the rain, freezing temperatures and wind. It’s made photoshoots increasingly difficult! I have one here that we shot around the end of summer/early autumn though and I’m finally sharing it with you as I prepare for the warmer weather. I know I said I didn’t like summer because it gets too hot, but at the moment I am grateful for any amount of heat that we might get anytime soon – please! Ha ha.
For this outfit I chose to wear my AG The Farrah Ankle Skinny Jeans in 13 Years Daybreak Destroyed (you’ve seen them before here and they’re on sale!) and styled them with my Topshop Roll Neck Top (seen here and here). This was a combination that I actually threw together after I’d worn the tapestry dress in a previous shoot, and I liked how it looked! I finished it off with my Jimmy Choo Melba Booties and my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak. Again, all of these items are pieces I have worn numerous times and the jeans and top are two of my favourites in my closet, so I’m sticking to my re-wearing rule quite nicely at the moment, with more to come as well.
On a more personal note, I’ve been feeling quite overwhelmed with everything lately and my anxiety has been taking hold the past few weeks. No matter how much I try to stay calm and not worry about anything, I can’t. I’ve always been a worrier since I can remember and any little thing can set me off. I’ve been trying to do things to relax and my strategy has always been to create a plan of action to eliminate the initial problem, but there’s quite a few things I struggle with as I can’t change them, or I want to change them and struggle to get around those old habits in my head. There’s always fear in anything I want to do. It’s a constant battle and I’m glad I have my blog to help occupy me and stop me from actually having a crisis again like before as that was a really bad place to be in. I wouldn’t usually share something so deep in an outfit post, but those of you out there who are riddled with anxiety and it’s affecting your lives, do you have any coping methods or tips other than breathing, music and distraction?
