Blanket wrap casually styled with jeans and a blouse

 My first post with my new lighter hair..
So long black hair, it was swell! But as they say; A change is as good as a rest, and the mood struck to finally do something about it. It’s still darker than where i want to be colour wise, but its a good starting point for moving in to lighter shades.. Yay for change! I’m planning a full hair post for later this week, so keep an eye out for that if you’re wondering about hair lightening!
So this weekend has been blissful, no work for me and lots of cuddles  with Neo and puppy Cassy, plenty of reading, way to much eating and lolling about, it was lovely (of course along with the obligatory, washing, ironing and general boring stuff).
As for outfits? Well it was casual all the way of course.. uggs were on and pj’s mostly, but when clothes for called for i opted for simple, drapey and comfy. Perfect for returning this bum back to the sofa and wrapping up in a blanket. I think its just amazing that you can legitimately wear a blanket out and call it an outfit. Ladies fashion has come on leaps and bounds in regards to comfort hasn’t it. Joggers are now fully accepted forms of day-wear and can even look super smart, trainers now look uber cool styled with smart trousers and blankets are now perfect for outerwear!
Don’t you just love how fashion progresses.  Being a woman can sometimes be hard work (lord don’t i know it!!) But sometimes i feel exceptionally proud and pleased to be a woman… yes i got all that from joggers and blanket wraps.. amazing what some r&r can do to a girls thoughts 😉

Is there a comfy trend that you have absolutely love?

    love your hair and this look. finally found a white blouse that I love to style casually, read a hint to upsize for the slouchy comfy look and it worked.
