I don’t get out much these days. Since the pandemic I’ve been working from home most of the time and I spend much of my life in pyjamas or “lounge wear”. It’s no coincidence, then, that my desire to put together an outfit has grown given I rarely have an opportunity to wear “something nice” (you could argue I should be making these opportunities for myself, but I appear to have become a hermit since the pandemic – anyone else?)
I think this outfit (below) would work for both a Natural Ingénue and an Ingénue Natural. With a few tweaks, it could work for a Natural Romantic; just add some statement jewellery and some chunkier, sexier boots.
Grey boots: From Pavers, these slouch ankle boots are shockingly comfortable. Also available at Next.
Knitted dress: Hand-knitted from Etsy, hence the price. No good if you’re allergic to wool, but otherwise gorgeous.
Ring: Amethyst set in sterling silver, another find from Etsy.
Tights: From Calzedonia and only £6.50 excluding postage.
Purple dress: A-line, slim fit purple dress from Amazon.
Pendant: Sterling silver mandala pendant. Comes with a choice of chains in various lengths.
Celestial hair pins: Three-piece clip set from Etsy. Great if you like to wear your hair up.
Bag: Leather-studded bag from Next.
Brown boots: Suede Spanish riding boots from Rydale.
