How Do They Do It?

IMG_1182So I said I was going to shoot more of my outfits and this is what I managed after work on Friday.. I honestly do not know how fashion bloggers do it. How do they know how to stand and where to put their suddenly awkward limbs.. I guess it’s practice so expect lots more awkward poses from me while I’m ‘learning’.

I was going to list my outfit but I realise that entirely by accident (and this happens WAY more than you’d think) everything I’m wearing is from H&M. I’ve had the tshirt for years but they still do the same one, it’s super comfy and comes in loads of different colours depending on the season. The skirt was a sale buy a Christmas or two ago and the shoes are in store now, a recent purchase that I am VERY happy with. They fill a gap I had in my collection – casual, daytime but nice with a dress/skirt. When I want to dress up but I don’t want to look too ‘going out’ (for work for example) they’re perfect and I’ve already had so much wear out of them.


I’ve taken so many things (like this skirt) out of hiding to put on my rack and remind myself to wear them. In a couple of months time if I still haven’t found a rhyme or reason to reach for them then they’re going to a friend or the charity bin. I’m such a hoarder and I can’t hold on to every item of clothing I have. I’ve been pretty good clearing things out recently but hopefully this will help me hold on to things I might actually wear.

Is anyone else massively excited for the upcoming change in season? I am SO over this heat now, can’t wait to bust out the boots and scarves.. oh what I’d give for a pair of covers-all-sins-tights right now. It’s the one time of year I get really excited about clothes! So although I’m going to try and enjoy what’s left of the British Summer I’m already looking forward to the deeper colours and may or may not have bought a pair of oxblood suede heels and a flannel shirt.. the A/W Next catalogue came out.. I couldn’t resist!

What’s your favourite season?

    I had to wear beige linen trousers today because it was so hot. They make me look like a middle aged woman on holiday! They seriously keep you cool though so no regrets.

    I love the heat, but hate baring my legs as I’m a size 18, so don’t feel comfortable, but last week I got a spray tan, and I put on a short above the knees dress – which I normally wear with my bulletproof tights lol – and I felt great, I got loads of nice comments from friends. So I’ve booked for another tan for next week lol. I’ve got loads of self tans but I’m too scared to try them, even got the CoCo Brown you raved about, but haven’t tried it lol
