jumper - asos, jeans & shoes - topshop, hat - UO

firstly - big sorry for not blogging in (gasp) 2 months! my camera's broken (these were taken with my trusty iphone), and in all honesty i've just been in a bit of a blogging/style slump. hopefully things can get back to normal soon!

but, i knew i couldn't wear this jumper and not take photos of it - it's got a cats face on it for goodness sake! the weird thing is, i don't even like cats much (i'm a dog person), but i was strangely drawn to it, & the amount of people who've told me they like it proves that it was a worthy purchase! paired it with the comfiest jeans ever, and vaguely carried on the cat theme with these leopard wedges i scored for £20 in the topshop sale, they're not exactly 'me' but they're actually dead nice.

blouse & shoes - topshop, shorts - f21, hat - h&m

firstly, huge huge sorry for not having blogged in weeks, i've just not had the time (or the weather, for that matter) to take any photos! but finally i've got something to post, hurrah.

so here i am sporting what everyone takes great delight in pointing out is a pyjama top, which is totally fine by me - i love wearing pyjamas. this top is silk so as you can imagine it creases so easily and is quite a hassle to wear, but by jolly if i don't absolutely love it. oh, and these denim shorts have leather pockets. that is all.

dream trousers

jumper - zara, trousers - topshop, shoes - asos (old)

oh bloody hell, these trousers. topshop, thank you for making these. i already own them in teal (i'm sure you know the ones i'm talking about), and i didn't think i could love a pair of trousers any more, until these came along. the colour is really specific, not quite a lilac but not quite light blue. 

as for this jumper, it goes with everything. i will always prefer navy to black.

favourite things; cheap hat

jumper & shoes - UO, blouse - whistles, shorts - h&m trend, hat - topshop, bag - zara

this outfit is basically a mash-up of all my favourite things. polka dots, leather, grey jumper and a good hat. speaking of this hat, it cost me a POUND. a bloody POUND! while having a nosey around the topshop sale i headed over to the accessories section and, being a hat fan, was drawn to this solitary hat sitting on it's own on a shelf. after noticing it was £1, i had to have it. it's a lovely colour, but a funny shape. either way, it's earned it's place in my collection.

mint & stripes

jumper - mango @ asos, shorts, wedges & bag - zara

i'm finally back with a blog post! the weather has just been too awful to even think about doing outfit photos. frizz and soggy knitwear does not a good blog post make. but here i am, rocking a nice stripe, and in a very spring-like move, some pastel. i went crazy for all those royal colours over winter, so it's good to have a change, and i do love all these nice paler colours.

doubling up

denim shirt - pull & bear, jeans - topshop (old), shoes & bag - zara

doing double denim, and some heels again.. what's happening to me?! but surely a good pair of t-bar wedges are like a wardrobe essential. no?

i've been really bored of skirts/shorts with tights lately and am finding myself wearing jeans with everything, and i'm actually enjoying it. i seem to have this obsession with rolling things up - i do it with shirts, jumpers, jeans... it just makes things look a bit less dressy. i'm sooo not dressy.

the boss

coat - topshop (old), skirt - asos, heels - UO

if you replace the heels with converse or loafers, this is pretty much what i wear on a daily basis. i love chucking on a band tee (this bruce springsteen one being my favourite, such a fan of the boss) and either jeans or a comfy skirt.

grey & dots

jumper & shoes - UO, skirt - river island @ asos, necklace - c/o little nell

i promise to think about maybe cutting down on wearing these shoes too much...! they're mega comfy though (for me to wear heels they have to be comfortable, i'm not one of those no-pain-no-gain shoe types) and for such a specific colour they go with a heck of a lot of my stuff.

i really like this outfit, despite being still fairly scared of pencil skirts i'm wearing this one quite a bit, and to stop looking too officey i like to dress it down with jumpers, this one inparticular being my current favourite. i searched so long for a great grey jumper so i'm pretty much not taking it off now.

doing double dots

blouse - whistles, trousers - topshop, shoes - UO

super quick post today! i decided to mix up my favourite pattern, and hoped for the best.. i quite like the result. but how could i not, it's my favourite blouse and my favourite trousers in one outfit!

stripes & sun

top & shorts - topshop (old), coat - warehouse, shoes - UO, necklace - c/o little nell

i bloody love a good stripe. give me either a stripe or a polka dot and i'll be happy (i'm pretty sure you've noticed this by now). this outfit would be great without the coat and tights, too, although the thought of getting my pasty little legs out right now fills me with dread....

the lovely penny sent me this necklace! i've been looking for a necklace that involved turquoise for ages and this really fits the bill. she has some lovely stuff in her shop so i suggest you all head over there RIGHT NOW!

teal heel

jumper & shoes - UO, skirt - h&m

a nice comfortable, simple outfit but with some actual heels! despite saying in my last post i'm a flats girl, it is nice to wear heels once in a while. i don't own many pairs, probably about 3 (i know, i know...) but these ones really jumped out at me, the colour is amazing, i usually go for black shoes but this colour is pretty versatile too.

i've been a really poor blogger lately. sadly i lost my usual photographer and now my mum takes all my photos, down the side of our house - she really tries, bless her, but they never come out well and the locations never change (i don't live in a beautiful city unfortunately....). this makes me quite unhappy with my photos and therefore i just don't want to post as much. i know it's supposed to be about the outfit, but we all know there's so much more to it than that. hopefully my posts will be of a better quality soon.

comfort & converse

coat - warehouse, blouse - whistles, jeans - topshop (oooold), shoes - converse

whilst i don't consider myself a very 'dressy' person anyway, this is my version of dressing down a bit. really it's just a normal outfit but with jeans and my trusty converse instead of a skirt and slightly less comfy shoes. i'm always much more inclined to throw on my converse than any other kind of shoe - they're so flippin' comfortable and go with most things, and they're the perfect shoe for walking round the shops in, which i do a bit too often.

i don't understand people who only ever wear heels and say things like 'i don't own a flat pair of shoes'. seriously? i am so much a flat shoe girl, as i'm sure you've noticed!

shirt - f21, trousers, shoes & hat - topshop

looking very teal here. but i'm pretty sure these two colours go well together (right?). but i really don't need any excuse to wear these trousers, they're my all-time favourites, i really can't get over them. and as for this blouse, it's so bloody nice. what a colour. when i saw it on the f21 i was all ready to snaffle it up, but they only had it in a size L, but i loved it so much i bought it anyway, and i'm glad i did because it's not that big, and i like stuff oversized anyway.

excuse my wacky face...

teal, brown and dots

coat - warehouse, blouse - whistles, skirt - c/o minkpink, boots - dune

this colour combo is really doing it for me. when the lovely people over at minkpink offered to send me something, and i chose this skirt, i thought 'that's going to be tricky to wear' as not much stereotypically goes with brown, but this suede skirt is such a lovely shade, that it really will go with a lot of colours. i'm thinking of it with mint green next...

and, oh dear. this blouse is the most i've ever spent on an item of clothing. but it's polka dots...

duck eggs & lace

cardigan - topshop, dress - pull & bear, hat - h&m, boots - dune @ asos

... i appear to be wearing a dress. this almost never happens! i used to be a total dress maniac, but then i had a change of heart and realised wearing seperates is just a lot more fun. but this one just kinda grabbed me, and i've been looking for something creamy and lace for a while.

it's supposed to be 17c here in norwich tomorrow, which just makes no sense to me.. a week ago it was 0c! i'm not complaining, but england, make your mind up!
