It feels like it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post, all I seem to wear these days is pyjamas and occasionally a big jumper and leggings when I’m forced to leave the house. But recently the lovely people at Warehouse sent me this pretty jacquard dress so I was organised for once and remembered to take outfit photos before I left the house. I love that it’s now just about bright enough take outfit photos in the evening (well, 5pm), hooray! I really love Warehouse dresses, they’re around the same price as the likes of Topshop but I think they’re better quality and just seem a bit nicer in general. I really like the graphic jacquard pattern on this dress, it’s quite bold without being too in your face. And you really can’t go wrong with a good old skater-style dress.
When I was shopping the other week, I spotted this blazer in Primark in the sale for just £7. It’s not the sort of thing that I would have normally picked up, but when I noticed how cheap it was I just couldn’t say no. I love the dusky pink colour of it, and I think it will really help to brighten up some of my spring and summer outfits. It’s not a very “me” sort of colour (i.e. not black) but I’m glad I ended up buying it!
How amazing is this brooch?! I got it in a tiny little antiques shop in the middle of nowhere a few summers ago when I was on an afternoon jaunt to the countryside with my mum. I don’t really wear blazers/dressy jackets very often, but I need to start wearing them more, just so I have an excuse to wear this brooch. I can’t remember how much it cost but it was probably pretty cheap – definitely a bit of old costume jewellery rather than a bona fide antique!
The shoes are another recent addition to my wardrobe. Usually I go for completely flat shoes or high heels, but for some reason these mid-heels caught my eye in New Look and I decided to buy them. They’ve got a wee bit of a platform and they’re quite chunky, so they don’t verge too close to kitten heel territory. They’re the perfect shoes for dinner/pubbing etc. when you want something a little bit dressy but can’t be bothered tottering around in 5 inch heels all night. They’re really comfy, are easy to walk in, and they look nice. Winner.
