The two tops shown below have already had an outing this month, but I am wearing them with other trousers and accessories to change the look.
First time around I wore the blue top with brown trousers and a gold chain necklace. The green top was worn with navy jeans and a simple gold necklace. I could also have worn these tops with either my grey or black skirt, plus tights and boots and other accessories.
My winter coat made an appearance this week - and seems to be here to stay! - so wearing different outerwear has created some new looks too. I have worn boots a couple of times plus thicker scarves and gloves on particularly chilly mornings. I suspect that it's time to pack away the short-sleeved tops that remain in my wardrobe!
As you can see, the possible permutations are endless. Many of us always wear the same combinations: for example this green top inevitably gets worn with my navy jeans, so having to think up different ways to wear it is a good experiment and helps me to realise that my wardrobe is more extensive than I thought.

Finally, I want to mention a point made by Sharon when she commented on my previous post. Sharon said that you can wear different outfits depending on your mood and I totally agree with her. In the photo on the right taken this morning, I am wearing a combination of bright colours that makes me feel upbeat, which was the mood I wanted to create today as I am trying to shake off my first winter cold. The outfit on the left is more subdued, however I felt elegant when wearing it and we were going to the theatre that day so it was the mood that I wanted. Please note that I didn't say the outfit is elegant - only that it made me feel that way! What about you - do you wear certain outfits to match the way that you are feeling or want to feel?
