For this weeks Sunday Style I had a couple of ideas floating around. Now that it’s time to write the post, they have been replaced by something altogether different. I’d a half written post looking at the difference between being stylish and being fashionable. As there are some stylish accessories in my Fathers Day Gift Guide, I considered focusing on one of them. Today though as I was dressing Little Miss OMG something struck me. She has natural style.
Some people wear the latest fashions from the best fashion houses in the world and look dreadful. Others can wear bargain basement clothes, paired with an accessory or two and look a million dollars. Little Miss OMG appears to fall into the later category. Admittedly at the moment we chose 90% of what is in her wardrobe. She does however have a knack for pairing things together. Time will tell if it’s natural style or just blind luck.
She went to her clothes cupboard and pulled out the blue skirt, yellow t-shirt and some ankle socks. With a little bit of help she was into those in a flash. Her next words were.
“I need a hat Daddy. To keep my hair out of my face” She dived into the drawer again and emerged with this gold, knitted beret.
“Is it not a bit hot for that?” I said. Unable to think of anything else, that wouldn’t upset her and put her off wearing it as I really didn’t think it would match the outfit.
Thankfully. In this instance, I am quite pleased she stuck to her guns and wore the beret. She looks awesome. I also hope she continues with this attitude of wearing what she wants no matter what others may think. Some people just have natural style.
