Happy Monday everyone!
Here are some recent work outfits, this is from last week
I bought this dress in the sales thinking it would be ideal for work but when I looked back at these photos, I just wasn't sure. The shape of it just seems designed to draw attention to my ample chest from every angle. While wearing it I felt like I'd inserted a pair of comedy breasts inside my dress... Blackadder style
Dress - Next sale
Leggings - goodness knows
Beads - charity shop
Bag - Primark (with charity shopped scarf)
Shoes - Ebay
I think it's possibly cut in too narrowly on the shoulders and buttoned up too high but it made me realise one thing... I am definitely ready for colder weather! Do I talk about the weather too much on this blog? I suspect I do. I posted here about the dread I feel every year when the spectre of 'summer' is on the horizon. I've realised that it's not that I don't like sun and brightness, I just don't like humid and humid, unfortunately, is a word that sums up British 'summertime'. That and the fact that I just want to wear cardigans again!
Here's what I wore today
Yes the opaques and brogues are out already
Nothing exciting. You've seen the dress before, a few posts ago. I just feel so much more comfortable in this outfit. I can't wait to be able to layer it up with cardigans and scarves and brooches galore!
Dress - charity shop
Tights - don't know
Brogues - Next, years ago
In other news, I was recently tagged by fellow tree dweller Gem and our own pink haired artist extraordinaire Clare with the following awards
You probably already follow them but if you don't, what are you waiting for? Be off and follow them at once!
Here are my 7 random facts:-
1. I hate diet coke.
2. I love cherry coke
3. My natural hair colour is mousey blonde. I've been dying it since I was 12
4. I hate moths - they're evil
5. Among many others, I currently love the words - nonsensical, disquietude, avuncular, spry and plinth.
6. I have just read George Orwell's Nineteen-Eighty-Four for the first time (I know, I know, I've been in a coma all my life) and it BLEW MY MIND. I am poised to devour Orwell's entire literary back catalogue and I have added the 1984 film adaptation starring John Hurt to my rental queue
7. Despite my initial indifference, I have really enjoyed the London 2012 Olympic Games and I think they've been great for the country
I'll leave you with a quote from Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian which I think sums it up:-
A glorious celebration of a forward-looking, outward-looking attitude, a multi-ethnic identity, confidence and self-belief. Irony and cynicism have been suspended for a fortnight, and it's remarkable how we easily learned to live without them.
Couldn't have put it better myself.
Have a great week
