Blue elephants crop top

Global Desi mustard yellow maxi skirt and blue elephants crop top

I read quite a lot personal style blogs and in many of them women do such a thorough analyse of their outfits: how they found this or that garment, for what reason they were attracted to it, what they were thinking while looking at that thing and why they decided to buy it at the end. Then goes the second part, with same whats and whys, now about pairing the bought garment with this or that particular thing from their wardrobe. To be honest some of such analyses are quite boring but there are others that are really interesting to read...Anyway, my point is that all those women manage to write quite large chunks of texts. Alas, for me it is always a struggle to write about my own outfits.

The interesting thing is that if I want to write about something else - traditional costumes, my travels, some festivals or events, - then there is no problem with writing. It is only my own outfits that perplex me. Most of the times when I take a place in front of my laptop to do a new outfit post my mind is literally blank, I have no idea what I should write about the look except the obvious things like "this is a black dress and I wore it with red shoes". But everybody can see it already on the photos, so it seem rather stupid to describe the obvious.

Most of the things in my wardrobe were bought for exactly same reason - I simply liked them. No much analyzing there: I like something, I try it on and if it looks good on me and its price is affordable, I buy it. Done. Yeah, the things that attract me in this or that garment are different - it can be colour, print, embroidery, design - but that's it. Not much to write about. Take my today's outfit. The skirt attracted me with its vibrant shade of yellow. The crop top won my heart with those printed sapphire elephants. Why did I pair them together? Simply because in my eyes they look beautiful together. Then I added matching blue earrings and bangles. That's it, end of analyse!

Well, I guess I just have to accept my lack of about-outfit-writing talent and continue the "few lines text" struggle.

  3. Dear Olga,
    it is always a pleasure to see how you put together your outfits. How you combine colors, patterns, jewelry and bags. I admit, I sometimes have a look only at the pictures. And they are always amazing.
    This elephant top is gorgeous, I like it so much.

  4. Well, your reasons for choosing your clothes and outfits are the same as everyone's - we are drawn to particular colours and styles, and we think we look good in them. There isn't much more to say than that, is there? I'm not particularly analytical about my clothes either, although I like researching vintage clothing and writing about that.
    The colours here are stunning, and that elephant blouse is gorgeous! xxx

  7. I'm not analytical about my clothes either, I buy them 'cos I love them and wear them because they make me feel happy - simple. Dressing is an art form, to write about the process takes away the magic.
    Loving the yellow sandals and that fab top. I'll be tracking down a bag like that when I'm in India next! xxx

  11. For me the shade of blue and the mustard are an unusual combination but really work. Your crop top is delightful and I just love those platform sandals.

  12. I wear what I like and what makes me feel good. One vintage trader asked me if I wore a certain era. I told her no I mash everything together. It's good to do our own thing x

  15. Elephants are wonderful, and these on your shirt are the best ... so pretty on you with yellow! Blue and yellow; one of those recent fresh combinations that looks so natural. Wonder why we didn't do it before!

  16. Your outfits always look awesome and put together. Maybe you dress by artistic feel rather than by analysis. I admire that.
