I've been thinking a lot about Style Confidence this week. What it is that makes us feel self-assured about our look, and so on. For me, confidence comes from having a uniform of tried-and-trusted basics - usually a pair of slim-not-skinny jeans, a tailored jacket and mannish shoes. Yes, mannish shoes, not five-inch stiletto heels, does anyone actually wear shoes like this in real life? And I think this approach applies to most grown-up women (which is why the Winser London post below received such positive comments). I want to look modern and chic and to stand-out for the right reasons. So part of the outfit should be cutting edge, but not ridiculous. Which brings me onto this Markus Lupfer Lips Jumper (MLLJ) from Fenwick's fantastic new spring collection. It's a brilliant stand-out piece, I know because I've been in-store to view it more times than is absolutely healthy. Though being designer merch, the MLLJ is a bit pricey, so Mr That's Not My Age has suggested I wear one of his old Rolling Stones t-shirts instead. But you know how I feel about tour t-shirts beyond a certain age. Maybe I'll opt for a fresh new shirt and boyfriend jeans instead. Anyone made the transition to slouchier denim yet?
