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):

How to style a simple grey t-shirt
September 26, 2016
You don’t need me to tell you how to style a grey t-shirt – it goes with everything: jeans or any style trousers; any length, colour or design of skirt; or under dungarees or pinafore dresses. However, I do want to suggest that’s it’s a much more flexible than the plain white t-shirt. White doesn’t really suit me anyway – I have fair skin with a cool tone, so white tends to wash me out, whereas grey basically somehow makes me look a bit better! Here’s a couple of outfits with the same t-shirt. They were taken a couple of months apart from each other, and when I picked out the purple skirt, I had totally forgotten the previous outfit also had purple bottoms. Never mind, second to dusky blush pink, purple is my next favourite colour to wear with grey…..
Independent Fashion Focus – an alternative to Bristol Fashion Week
October 11, 2016
Every single thing I go to lately seems to have the advertised start time about three-quarters of an hour before it actually starts. It’s as if they know I’m coming and in anticipation of my lateness, give the wrong time. The problem is, I have been dead on time for a change! So; not having the courage to speak to strangers already chatting to each other, after spending as long as I politely could browsing the clothes rails at To The Moon, I walked up and down the road for while and moved my car to a less dodgy parking space until the first person was due to speak, according to the piece of paper sellotaped to the wall. I perched on a stool at the back of the room with my notebook at the ready, interested to hear what they had to say about ethical and sustainable fashion….
