Outfit 7.5.10: Green!

7.5.10: green

I wore this on Friday, on the day after election. Maybe my subconscious didn’t want me to wear the colours of any of the parties now engaged in the back and forth deal making. Or maybe I just wanted to wear that skirt and took my matching obsession a little too far.

I look really young here despite the old ladyish skirt. I think I’m regressing. I actually got ID’d twice in the last few weeks, and I’m nearly 29. I think it’s the long hair and the couple of kilos I’ve put on which seem to have gone straight to my cheeks, which I accept make me look younger. But you know, not 17.

The first time when I was asked recently I could at least put it down to doorman boredom, because he asked for ID before we’d even close to the door. But the second time I was actually chatting to the bouncer, and he was just about to put the overage wristband on me (this was an over 16s gig), and he stopped and said ‘actually, can I see some ID…’. Ridiculous.

scarf – swap
shoes – clarks
everything else – charity shops

    I love how you can wear all one color – if I tried that, people'd be calling me The Jolly Green Giant all day long. But you look lovely and oh so springy!

    so cheerful and verdant! :o) I, too, get ID'd often, and have just come to accept that this will serve me well when I get older.

    I know very few people who could pull off an all-green outfit, but you do it so well! It looks amazing!

    ooh, i love green, this is such a fun mix of shades! you could always chop a couple inches off the skirt if you feel the length is a little granny. πŸ™‚

    I agree you do look younger than your years. Lovely shirt.

    Yes I had the same problem choosing an outfit around the election time. Green looks great on you.
