Weekly Wardrobe

I’ve had a hectic week this week. After the New Forest Fairy Festival, I had two days to do about six months-worth of cleaning before my parents came to stay! This is the outfit I wore when we went out for a lovely meal together. I thought I’d take the opportunity to wear these gorgeous wedge sandals from Faith that I can barely walk in, considering I only had to get from the car to the pub and back again! It’s not that they’re too tall – the style of the platform wedge makes them fine in that respect; but the lack of ankle support is the problem. That back heel strap keeps slipping down turning the shoes pretty much into flip-flops. Not ideal when you’re four inches off the ground! None-the-less, as you can see, they are just too pretty not to wear….

The ditsy floral brown dress was from Joe Browns a few years ago and I still love the quirky look. All Saints did a similar one called the Parachute Dress, and when I get down to a size to fit in All Saints clothing, I’m going to scour e-bay for one! I wore it with leggings as the dress has a pretty short hem in places and has a tendency to fly up to my chest with the slightest breeze. Better to be on the safe side!

The dusky pink cardigan is from New Look and is several years old. I wear it to death every summer as it’s so lightweight and goes with everything. The shell necklace came from a bundle I bought from ebay when I was doing a mermaid photoshoot for Oshun and wanted shell accessories.

Shop the look (My items are all a few years old, so these are similar):

We’ve had a real mix of weather lately haven’t we?! I’m actually across the pond in Connecticut right now, but I think it’s fairly similar to the UK – lovely and sunny one day, and then cold and grey the next. This outfit would have been perfect the day before we took the photos! However it was ten degrees cooler when the weekend rolled around and I have to be honest, my bare legs were a little chilly! Anyway, this is a great way to layer for changeable weather, but maybe pack a pair of skin-coloured tights too!…
1950’s style dresses haul & try-on
November 27, 2016
I recently had that crisis moment when I looked into my room full of clothes and realised I had absolutely nothing to wear! I was looking for an outfit to wear to Blogfest and I had specific criteria: something that I’m going to be comfortable in all day; something that I definitely don’t look pregnant in (this was a Mumsnet event) ie. something flattering and I felt good in, and something that I felt suited my personality and style. 1950’s style dresses are something that answers these requirements, so I went on the internet and in a panic, ordered five! Three are going back, but I’m keeping two. Here’s the video I made, showing them and trying them on, so if you like this sort of style too, then hopefully it will be helpful.
