just like the thoughts of my mind

Wish I was there (Egypt I mean)

So today I was feeling better about my body image, then looked at the photos again when I was just uploading them for the blog and had another wobble, but I know it’s my head that’s a bit lopsided so I’m going to upload even though I wasn’t going to.

Today I wore my wool trousers for warmth more than anything else, and I ditched the long boyfriend cardigan for a slightly shorter one, and added a bit of leopard print to jazz it up. My feet were freezing in these shoes so I actually changed them for boots when I went out.

M&S Wool wide legged trousers £4 charity shop
Black Top Asda sale £3
Cardigan from TK Maxx
Shoes from Miss Selfridge in the sale
Scarf is actually a sarong from Primark about 3 years ago
Earrings Asda £3 years old

And here are a couple of bits I’ve bought over the last few days:

Butterfly Scarf £2 Primark

Wooden Beads £2 Primark

Pink Flower Earrings £1.50 Asda sale – can’t get a good enough pic but will wear soon to show them off.

Bally Vintage Shoes charity shop – Not sure whether to keep these or ebay yet.

And for those who wanted to see a smiley photo of me…here is some pics of me in Egypt in September last year, where me and OH spend two glorious weeks. Looking back at the photos makes me wish I was there!

And this one is for me...because despite what my head tells me, I'm actually totally gorgeous!
(even though I'm begining to burn, quite bad!)

Lots of Love

I love those wide legged trousers! Glad you are feeling better and that you recognize you *are* bloomin' gorgeous. :) Keep feeding that ego, girl!

I love those trousers I think wide leg trousers are very flattering, the outfit is very classy you are so pretty Im glad you are starting to see it for yourself :)

I love how you used the sarong as a scarf, and animal print really is great on you.
Personally I think you suit skinny trousers better than wide. The ones you are wearing don't show off your enviable pins enough IMO!
Do you wear your Bally shoes? Would you miss them if you no longer had them? Would you be gutted if they only fetched a couple of pounds on ebay? If yes then keep them, if no them sell!
I love seeing people's holiday snaps, Where did you go in Egypt? I've been diving in Sharm twice and LOVE the Red Sea, in fact Dylan was conceived there!

Gorgeous trousers - I really need to start wearing more tailored trousers like this, rather than jeans, jeans, jeans!

You look fabulous in those trousers, what a fantastic find. I love the leopard print scarf and the way you're wearing it, too. You should keep those Bally shoes, they're a classic.
You and your BF look so happy together and you should stick that bikini shot somewhere very visible to remind yourself that your body is perfect and you're stunning. Yeah to self-confidence!

You are gorgeous missus and you really suit the tailored, classic stuff you wear. And I'm jealous of your lovely long neck - I can't get away with scarves worn like that at all :(

I'm probably talking total rubbish here but I wonder if you're not happy with the photos because they're taken from a lowish angle? Have you tried moving the camera to a higher place? Ignore me if I'm not making sense!

Check you out in your bikini... you look AMAZING! I agree with Vix... pop that picture somewhere you will keep seeing it, I did that with one of me and it wasn't even when I was my lightest and it does wonders for my self esteem.

Like the use of the sarong as a scarf. x

You wear leopard print so well, always looks classy! You definitely suit classic shapes. Fab holiday pics, how fab do you look in your bikini!
