It turns out that the best place in my flat for taking pictures of my outfit that aren't too grainy...is the laundry room. Figures, since the place with the best natural light goes to airing my laundry (it is still a crappy picture because I am using a crappy camera). In any case, I like this sweater so much that I wanted to show you guys what it looks like on. This is also pretty much my work uniform now, though I also wear ballet flats and loafers. Such a contrast from my uniform in January.
Anyway, No Signposts in the Sea has done a pair of great posts here and here on style narratives and blogging, and I highly recommend it. I've often been reluctant to do outfit posts because I'm lazy, and also in the past whenever I did them they don't feel right - I wasn't interested in sharing my thoughts on style in such a manner.
But I've come to enjoy it whenever bloggers do outfit posts - and not always in a slickly photographed, editorial-ish manner - ever since I've come to discover blogs with similar aesthetics and goals to mine. And I realise that I enjoy the narrative people want to share with the world.
I suppose I'm doing one of my own as a quid pro quo, hah. I don't see myself doing one every day (I'm lazy) but I think doing outfit posts from time to time is my contribution to expressing what I believe my style narrative to be, and to the overall coherence of what I'm trying to say about style and design with this blog.
