SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

It was nearly 2am when I started this blog post, having intended to spend the entirety of the evening in question writing one. Not this one, actually, but another that I was yet to think of a subject for (so maybe this one? Who really knows) and never got around to doing. The reason? Admin.… Continue reading SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread? (Spoiler: no, but let’s talk about it anyway)

My first denim skirt wearing session of the year lasted a grand total of about 90 minutes and exposed parts of my legs that hadn’t been exposed in a while to the people of Norwich. I spent the whole of said 90 minutes excruciatingly aware of this fact, pulling the stupid thing down every few… Continue reading Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread?

Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

I’m sorry for the swear in the title, but not that sorry because you can blame the creator of the look at my fucking red trousers blog, which I always found to be tremendously amusing browsing material and couldn't help but reference. These aren’t red trousers, obviously, but they are very yellow. Fucking yellow, you… Continue reading Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things

If I went through all of my clothes, shoes and accessories and wrote down where everything was from – I’m not saying I’m going to, but humour me – I reckon the result would be an embarrassingly short list. I’m a creature of habit and convenience when it comes to shopping and (excuse me while… Continue reading I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things

An ode to slow-burning clothes love and ‘useful’ buys

Allow me, if you will, to tell you the story of this dress. I passed it in New Look a few weeks ago while browsing for something that would be totally striking and location appropriate for my trip to Holland (in the end I got flustered, gave up and subsequently spent the trip looking like… Continue reading An ode to slow-burning clothes love and ‘useful’ buys

Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

The way that the topic for this blog post came into my head is kind of embarrassing, but let's roll with it. Today I spent probably two of my fully dressed hours pulling my culottes out of my arse (how’s that for TMI?), where they seemed determined to reside for the majority of the day.… Continue reading Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away

Like all British people in perhaps the entire history of the world, I’m prone to getting wildly overexcited the moment the faintest glimpses of sunlight break through our perpetually cloudy sky. This has led me to wearing all manner of warm-weather outfits before it's been comfortable to do so in the past, and after one… Continue reading Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away

How to style a suit

I hopped aboard the suit trend and it made me feel seriously sassy

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with intu Chapelfield “What’s the most *extra* item I can possibly find?” I thought, when deciding what I wanted to style for intu Chapelfield’s S/S 2018 Blogger Challenge. I assume that was the thought process anyway, since this is the result - and also since the shopping trip… Continue reading I hopped aboard the suit trend and it made me feel seriously sassy

Making workwear more fun; ways to give your office ootd some personality

My idea of nightmare attire is probably a stiff, close fitting, traditional grey work dress. Apologies, grey work dresses, or wearers of grey work dresses; I’m sure nice dresses that are grey that you could wear for work exist, but in this instance I see the grey work dress as a symbol of all the… Continue reading Making workwear more fun; ways to give your office ootd some personality
