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?
