Careless catastrophe

I often make a mess of my outfits when I’m heading off to the library or nature reserve. The way I see it I’m going there solely for myself so it really doesn’t matter what I look like.

I guess that was my inspiration behind this outfit which I’m not so sure what I think of. Initially I thought it was a bit a catastrophe with all the colours however blue, read and cream go together pretty well.

That’s all for now.

Blazer and red

I absolutely love this little red bag, best £4 I ever spent! It goes perfectly well with so many of my outfits; it’s so light filled with just the essentials in comparison to when I carry larger bags that sometimes literally weigh me down.

This outfit was one that I didn’t really think about but I chose to wear my super smart blazer (even though it was just a casual day out) because I love being able to dress down smarter pieces.

I’ve never worn this particular blazer for a formal occasion before and I probably never will.

Lady en rouge

This is one of my favourite dresses despite the fact that I rarely wear red. I love the length, pockets, tie at the waist and lastly the metal zip. Its pretty old I got it from next a while back.

The name of this post is actually named after a song I wrote inspired by an episode of bomb girls. The song was about a person struggling to get by in life who puts on a front that everyone believes.

I only wear this dress in summer so don’t tend to wear a jacket with it. I tend to just wear it with sandals or converse and then maybe a necklace as the dress is very simple. If I wear it on a colder day I’d probably wear it with a my h&m bomber jacket or my black blazer.

The dress comes down just below the knee but I’m thinking of cutting it into a mini dress, as I think it would make it more versatile for me to style.

Colour at last

wpid-collage_20140512204419506.jpgAfter looking through a few of my outfit photos I realised that many of my outfits consist of black and grey. Despite this I do actually like wearing bright colours like the one in the top above.

Of course I ended up wearing grey trousers because they are an old favourite of mine. To make the outfit a little less boring I wore a denim vest over the top.
