just like the thoughts of my mind

"I'm just chasing rainbows..."

I often find it difficult to blog my outfit when I’ve not made a huge effort or when I don’t think it’s that interesting, but as discussed recently on the MSE forum I think I need to make the effort to blog it every day anyway. I often think that unless I think an outfit is super interesting and stylish it’s not worth blogging but I think by having a photographic diary of what I do wear on a daily basis that will show me where I could make little tweaks or changes to jazz up an ordinary/plain outfit or the ruts I can find myself falling into when I can’t be bothered.

One thing starting this blog has done is made me think more about the outfits I pick out and instead of having a wardrobe full of clothes I never wear I’ve been making much more of an effort to pull them out and showcase them. It’s also given me much more confidence about my appearance and style, and by reading other blogs and seeing what other people wear has given me the courage to experiment a little bit more. (eg I’d have never worn coloured tights in the past), so a big thank you to everyone who blogs regularly and comments on my blog.

So here is my outfit today:

Black jersey Dress – Ethel Austin £2.50
Black Treggings – New Look sale £7
Blue Office Pixie Boots - £5 charity shop
Blue Primark Cardigan - £10ish
Necklace 99p charity shop (bought yesterday)

And my latest charity shop find, I found this beauty for £2.99 (excuse my PJ’s thrown on the bed!)

I love the indie look, there’s something about that 90’s Britpop look that makes me feel sqidgy inside. I’ve got a bottle green jacket like similar and now spring is coming am looking forward to dusting it off and strutting my stuff. ooooOOoo I feel inspired to dig out some Shed 7 and have a sing along.

Ta ta for now

I love velvet jackets; there's one trend I wouldn't mind coming back sooner rather than later!

Really like this outfit - can't believe that dress was only £2.50!
I'm rather jealous of the cardigan - it'd fit perfectly into my wardrobe!

Thanks a lot for the comment :)

cute velvet blazer!

Lovely blazer. I have a midnight blue velvet one in the wardrobe just waiting to be squeezed into - clearly a vintage size 16 is an awful lot smaller than a modern day size 16!

Lovely blazer, fabulous find. Love the colour.
The outfit you're wearing is fab, pared down classic style which suits and your lovely figure a treat.

As a Britpop kid, I love your velvet jacket! I used to have loads of them when I was a teenager and Ive never been able to find one now that I like! I used to wear mens ones from the chairty shop my fave was a wine coloured one that had matching flared trousers...Im jealous i need to start hunting for one again I think!

Charity shop finds are by far the best! :)
