swinging my satchel
I'm none too sure what I think of this look, actually. While it includes many things I like right now (headscarves, knotted shirts, socks), I can't help but feel a bit costumey, and like I'm a bit too old for this. It was fine for chilling in South London, but when my dissertation supervisor emailled me with an hour's warning to say he had time to see me after all, and I tore into the centre and arrived like a panting schoolgirl in his office--well, I felt somewhat absurd, even sans headscarf which I had the presence of mind to take off. I actually think that without the blouse or the satchel, this would be a perfectly cute 60s styled look, however.
What do you think? Where do you draw the line between outfit and costume?
