Well, thanks so much for your lovely response on my last post regarding blogging for fun and blogging when i want rather than a strict structure, its honestly so appreciated to know that no matter what happens, you will still be here to read and chat with me. I always love reading your comments and knowing whats going on with you.
Anywayyy, so live lately: I’ve been cheating on clothes with interiors.
We’ve been crazy busy as we’re currently amidst some big renovations, this weekend we put in the new oak worktops in the kitchen which was quite the feat (mess and sawdust EVERYWHERE!). Now it’s on to cupboard renovations, new tiling and flooring options; if you could see all the tabs open on my laptop you would get a glimse in to my brain right now, its B&Q, paint charts, door handles and plug sockets. My head is buzzing with all the things we need to get sorted, but I’ve been loving it.
Having said that, I had a wardrobe cull again a month or so ago and so i bought a few pieces that I thought i could do with, nothing too much but yes.. nice new things to make the wardrobe work well for me.
So for Spring i’ve been wearing/ buying
As seen in the above picture and the one below, i have been living in these new loafers that are so incredibly soft. I wanted a nice pair of shoes that looked smart, kind of preppy and would go with lots of outfits. I picked these up from H&M in-store recently (this colour is out of stock in most sizes but the beige is possibly even nicer for summer) and I literally chuck them on with everything from jeans to dresses and skirts. They’re comfy from the offset, which is so important to me (‘aint got no time for painful shoes, huh!!)and i just love how well they work with everything. Glorifed outdoor slippers as i like to affectionately call them 🙂
I know random granny alert possibly, but i’ve been wearing a lot of cardigans lately, and i’ve bought 2 new too. I think it enables me to still wear nice pretty summery tops or dresses without feeling to vulnerable to the cold that is inevitable in this country.
I wear my cardigans so much i’m looking to put my money towards a really lovely one, like these from N Peal , a little luxury with cashmere investment seems like such a good idea, especially as it is something i will wear all year round, time and time again.
I am obsessed with my new little neck tie from Joules as it just adds a pop of interest with little fuss to any outfit. Oh and it works SO well with stripes, which lets face it i wear most days.. last week i wore a different stripe top 4 days on the trot.. in my defence they were different colour stripe tops, but yeh, the obsession is real folks. So this is a great little way of adding a twist to my faves.
Dresses and Boots
I wore a combination of boots and dresses a lot through winter, and it seems i won’t be stopping this season. Same old same old i hear you say, why yes, yes it is. But like a broken record i will say it again, i love the contrast between feminine, pretty and dress and boots. Plus it makes wearing more dresses on the daily, with my very casual lifestyle, much more wearable.
These boots are SO old but they’re comfy and work well with dresses, I’ve actually been on the hunt for a flat pair of tan slouch boots but to no avail.
This maxi dress is new and is possibly my dress of the season.. i love, love , love it and it seems a lot of you on insta do too. I had a lot of DMs and questions about it. Its a maxi length on me and i like it that way. It buttons all the way down the front so i plan on wearing it open a la kimono style with some jeans and a tee.
Salt Water sandals
Yep, these yellow Salties have been going strong for 6 summers! I was asked on monday’s insta post (below) if theyre worth the money and the hype, my answer is a huge resounding yes! They are by far my comfiest sandals, can be worn with dresses or shorts, skirts or jeans and look ace, and they can get wet. I wear these in the sea and they’re still in amazing condition.
So that’s what i’ve been buying and wearing on repeat! Clothes that are comfy and make me happy.
