Who else reads those ‘what to wear for your body shape’ posts? According to mine, I should be wearing wrap dresses, bootcut jeans and single breasted jackets. Unfortunately, I’m not a business woman in her mid-thirties, so I won’t be following that advice, thank you.
I think we can all agree that those guidelines are pretty silly, so last weekend, I tried something totally out of my comfort zone. I never ever thought I’d don a polo neck (“avoid high necked items” and I usually avoided body-con (“do not draw attention to your middle”). But after my last post about body image, and seeing the similarly busty Marilyn Monroe wearing the hell out of her black polo neck, I thought I’d give it a go!
Whipping my newly bobbed hair into a beehive (so relieved I can still do that!) and grabbing my vintage-looking pink cocoon coat, I headed to Ashley Cross to shoot a few snaps, inspired by my favourite Fifties and Sixties ladies.
You might have noticed a few changes in the photo style and quality here – that’s because my camera died after a few shots so I had to resort to my iPhone – oops! I’ll certainly be making sure I have extra batteries next time! #Blogger101
