Fuschia and pale blue are one of the prettiest colour combinations I know, so I decided to go through my closet on the hunt for items in these colours to make an outfit. I wore this running errands a few days ago.

I thought the outfit worked really when when I had the jacket on, as the jacket is quite fitted, while the trousers have a wide cut. But then I worked up a heat while shopping and had to take the jacket off, and the outfit wasn’t that great anymore.

Since the trousers are cut wide, I should have worn them with a more fitted top to balance out the proportions. WIth this rather wide floral shirt, I’ve added about 5 kilos to my frame, which is not ideal. However, though unintentionally, this is a great example of how NOT to dress with regards to proportions. And if we don’t make mistakes once in a while, we’ll never learn and improve. That’s true in all areas of life, including how to dress.
