this is ... my most favourite outfit, that expresses my personal style

This is me waiting patiently for the bloody photo to be taken, so I don't have to stand still anymore with this silly smile on my face. I think perhaps I am not a very willing model, I prefer to be behind the camera for sure.
So... in the wintertime, my favourite outfit consists of
white converse -in this case my new cuties
daggy jeans -that are saggy around the bottom area
layers of cotton tops (3) -for warmth & breathability
a woolly jumper - in this case an old Benetton hand me down from my best mate
a scarf -this one is vintage 1960's
clement, my big black jacket - for in-clement weather
old grand papa hat - from flea market, my head is sooo small that whenever I find a hat that fits, I buy it automatically. I love hats & now have a collection of 8, never too many I say!
& several brooches - a crown brooch holding my scarf together, a willy wagtail brooch upon my lapel, & hiding under my jacket, attached to my jumper is a santa maria ship brooch.
So what does this say about me? I don't like too much colour, I'm very sensible & have layers to keep warm, I'm not really a heels girl & I'm not too fancy.
Thank you so much to everyone who posted their outfits & to Angela for putting up with my theme. x
And a big thank you for your support from the last post. I'm feeling a little calmer tonight.

You look great - love those shoes! I'm definitely more comfortable behind the camera too - I always have a cheesy grin when I'm made to pose :)

That's such a cool understated outfit. I too love my converse, and the 3 layered top theory... oh and scarfs! And hats too, especially in Winter. mmmm. Winter is so good for layers and accessories!

You look great,I always mean to wear hats,especially in winter but sometimes feel too dressed up,maybe it's too formal for Sydney.

It's been a long time since my last pair of Converse. Mine were pink. :-) I think it's time!!

Winter is my favourite time for clothes. So many great layers!

That's such a great photo...I love the backdrop.
What a cool outfit....and why don't they make jeans to fit people with little bums?
