Rusty...

Sometimes it feels like I have been blogging for years, days become weeks and sometimes inspiration is sadly lacking. As a blogger, there are hundreds of photos stored on a hard-drive, just waiting to be made into posts, some don't make the cut, due to a bad angle or less than flattering pose and others probably should  have been consigned to the recycling bin on your desktop. It is interesting how blogs offer a slice of your everyday life up for perusal and yet we insist on everything being 'just so' rather than showing what you actually wear or do on a daily basis. This outfit is one of those that I wore on an ordinary day at work and although it isn't particularly fashion forward, I really like it. It is funny how our wardrobe reflects how we see ourselves and actually sometimes, what you wear doesn't have to be 'an outfit', it can just be a nice dress... 

I guess what I am trying to say is that recently I have been more introverted and my clothes choices are reflecting that ;)

Dress: Gap (via Matilda), blazer: Clothing at Tesco, necklace: Topshop, shoes: c/o Spartoo
This dress came from the wardrobe of my friend Matilda and the length and colours meant that it was love at first sight. I  think I suit Autumnal colours and I love all the different colours in the pattern and the gorgeous scalloped layers of the skirt.


I even managed to match my lipstick! I am wearing the Max Factor lipstain in the corally orange shade which adds a lovely bright colour to lips, topped with my beloved Ballistic lippie!


Rather boringly I went for grey accessories and the length of this blazer was lovely with the knee-length of the dress. This Topshop necklace was also a nice lengthening device, something I am always keen to do with my (rather stumpy) frame!

Owl-bert the door stop is looking pretty sad at the moment!
I love these heels and I am wearing them with yet another Autumnal outfit here! They really are the perfect height to wear all day and the grippy sole meant that I didn't fall flat on my face- perfect for when you are trying to stay incognito!  

How long have you been blogging? What do you do to stay inspired?

I love that necklace, and think grey accessories work perfectly against the dress colours.

this is very nice for work, most people I work with wear black trousers. You know that horrid sort? yuk. With a Next top :( x

I have to say I love that fab autumnal dress, it looks great with the blazer.
I used to post what I wore everyday but now I can't be doing with outfits everyday - sometimes it's work/training/pjs only! So I can pick outfits more carefully x

Owwww I hope this isn't a happy post covering up what you're feeling could have been a sad post!

It's SO difficult to stay inspired but honestly, every time I look at your blog you always seem to have got it just right. <3

That's such a pretty dress! It's been about four years for me now (on blogger, I had a livejournal before that!) and to keep inspired I try and force myself to do inspirng things. Some weeks all I want to do is stay in my pjs and watch tv, but that doesn't make for an interesting blog(!) so the more interesting things I do, the better my blog is.

I definitely prefer everyday outfits of bloggers as opposed to when they've dressed up just for the camera. It's so much real and always comes across as better.

Love this look. The colours of the dress are perfect.

Ooooh, I really like this whole outfit! You're right, I think the autumnal colours really suit you. New follower by the way- have just discovered your blog and I'm loving it! xx P.S. I particularly love your owl door stop in the background, realy cute ;-)

I really like these kinds of everyday outfits - I tend to take photos whichever day, I'm not too fussed, but I am selective about which pics I put up haha.

I've been blogging for years now on and off (at least four) - I look at streetstyle, that always gives me some new inspiration
