Fashion Friday: Give Me A Try

I went for a more casual look for this FF. I have to admit I don’t dress casually very often, and even this outfit might not be casual enough for some. This is the outfit I wore to see The Wombats on Monday. It’s rare that concerts are held on Mondays. I know I didn’t really feel like putting much thought into this outfit so it’s a real mix and match.

The grey jeans (or any jeans for that matter) with the casual boots are a good match. The boots are the same ones I wore in Piña Colada.

Long time readers will probably also recognise the long blue scarf from last year’s TARDIS Blue. I chose the scarf because I needed a pop of colour and the blue matched with the small blue details on my top. The other scarves I owned, mainly black and white, are prone to leaving lint and fluff on my coats and woolly clothing.

It was a very windy day, though I am not sure if it was that cold. I did double up and wear my grey cardigan under my coat, though.

I have been known to call this coat my ‘pumpkin coat’, named for the way it can be tightened at the waist and at the hem with cord, forming some kind of bubble shape resembling a pumpkin. It’s a very casual coat with a bit of a collar as well. The collar can be adjusted and tightened to look more ruffled. The outline of the pockets is visible on the coat itself.

The top is the brand Tokito and I think that it looks better with skirts or leggings because of its long cut. It’s also sleeveless. I don’t particularly like it in this outfit, but as I mentioned, I just threw this all together. Some people thought the long streaks were my hair because my hair seemed to look like a part of it.

I didn’t make any special selections for the jewellery, but overall I did go for a mix-and-match look, but making sure I gave the look some edge with some edgy and bold pieces. The bail bangle was a purchase from a small store that sold bracelets from Taju. I never thought nail bangles were my style and I think they’re one of those ‘too common’ pieces, but I caved and bought this one because the quality stood out to me as being very good.

The same goes for the earrings, which have gunmetal coloured pearls for the back, and cubic zirconia for the stud in front. I dressed down a bit with this outfit, but I like to jazz up these outfits a little with my accessories.

I named this FF after The Wombats’ song Give Me A Try. I am happy to say that is probably my favourite song by them. The Wombats were incredible, and I really enjoyed the show. I had listened to a bit of the band’s music before, but I wasn’t a huge fan so I didn’t have much interest in seeing them live. I was pleasantly impressed, and I think some of their songs are more vibrant and energetic when they perform live. I wrote a review and took a bunch of photos, too!

Nice casual outfit! It looks well put together, even if you didn’t put much thought to it. Love the blue scarf! It really makes the outfit pop out more! And the streaks on your top do look like it’s part of your hair! It’s pretty neat 😄 I also think the grey cardigan goes well with the rest of the ensemble! I actually thought your sleeve was the top until I looked closer and realised it was your cardigan!

Nice outfit, Georgie! 😄 Can’t wait to see your next FF!

Thank you! I have been trying not to put too much thought into my outfits for Fashion Friday posts because I want them to evoke a better sense of my style day-to-day rather than something I meticulously put together ‘for the sake of’ a post. 😛

I really like this look! That top is really cool and after you mentioned it, it does kind of blend into your hair. 😄

Nice outfit! 😊 It’s so casual and I can swear it looks comfortable. I love your shirt. It has an interesting quality to it and not only that, but the jewelry looks beautiful.

I like the casual look you had on! I’ve been wanting to buy another pair of ankle boots for a while, but haven’t found any cute ones. The ones you have look awesome 😉. You have fashion on every layer of clothing you have, 😆. I thought it’s a pretty cool concept how a nail can be turned into a jewelery 🙂

Nice Outfit, Georgie!
even I thought for a second that the long streaks were your hair! 😄 😄
I especially liked your rings!
