Jumper: Topshop (sale)   Trousers: H&M   Boots: New Look   Bag: Zara   Necklace: H&M   Ear cuff: Topshop

Again hadn't meant to go quite so matchy matchy with this ensemble but like the way the bottom panel of the bag, and colour, almost matches the jumper! Thought being in for boxing day sales was going to be horrendous but actually wasn't too bad, and even got a bit of time after to do a bit of mooching myself. Found this jumper in the Topshop along with some funky flowered trousers, that are going to have to go back :( ...too many Christmas dinners I think!

Am going to try and be good again about buying clothes in the New Year, (see how long that lasts again!) but maybe just be more sensible and think about things I can mix and match rather than just keep buying lots of dresses that never seem to wear. Still so many things to show on here that have owned for ages but will have a big clear out soon, when I get a chance, and post up some pics.

Jumper: Mens   Jeans: H&M   Boots: Primark   Snood: Primark   Armour ring: Primark   Big ring: Topshop   Bag: H&M

As have said before find mens jumpers so much cosier a lot of the time, not just down to the size but they always seem thicker, so have stolen the bf's her. Also as I quite liked the knit colours too. Went bit matchy matchy with the red in the knit and snood and bag, was less thinking that way!

Am currently spending little bit of time with the family, have all managed to gather together somewhere out in the sticks, and am finally feeling bit Christmassy! Going to have a hunt for some Christmas images later like I did last year, here. Also going out later for post birthday celebrations so will hopefully get some more images then to post over the holidays! Hope everyone is having pleasant holidays!!!

It's my birthday...well it was

Jumper: H&M    Skirt: Primark   Boots: New Look    Bag: New Look   Watch: Urban Outfitters   Necklace: Vintage

Just quick post, (still stealing internet!!!), and as am off out to celebrate birthday! Woop woop! Was actually yesterday but spent majority of day in work so making up for it today and going to have a Christmassy afternoon and some drinks. Going to wear the above with a massive knit scarf and longer line coat to keep out the cold! Soooo hoping internet gets sorted out in flat this week so can do some more posts and keep everyone updated with our Christmas adventures...stayed tuned for sister and brother-in-laws scary matching Christmas themed jumpers! Rolling eyes as I type!

Jacket: Primark   Jumper: Topshop   Trousers: H&M   Boots: Primark   Scarf: Gift   Bag: H&M   Hand chain: Topshop   Stack rings: Primark

Not got any new photos at the moment as this week we have moved into our new flat, very nice as very pretty, not so nice as no internet (not helpful for last minute Christmas shopping, grrr!) so am back in the old house currently stealing some internet time! Not that I didn't know already, and was the original idea for starting this blog, but have way too many things! The amount of clothes I found that had forgotten about (bf was none too pleased with the amount of clothes still with tags on!) but I do find it nice to rediscover again!

Took these when out and about before the ones in the previous post, just love the big knit bits at the moment, the longer the scarf the better I am saying, mostly because the more I can wrap it around the warmer I am! Am trying to get pregnant sister into her maternal nature and start knitting me something, so far it wouldn't be enough to cover an ant.

If it ain't...baroque

Jumper:   Trousers: H&M   Earrings: Topshop

I apologise for any spelling mistakes but currently can't feel my fingers whilst typing this, had to go out on some errands quite early this morning and it's soooooooo cold! Am now back home and don't plan on moving off the sofa again today, wrapped up and staying that way!!! The quick photo taken above after I found the jumper the other day, has been in a few magazines to go with the baroque trend, and just came across by accident - always when you not really looking for anything!

Here, featured on the Look magazine site, shows how similar it is to a Stella McCartney style one and I like the idea of wearing with tailored trousers and come black boots. Also liking this one, here, from Zara and the panels on this pencil skirt, here, at River Island for a more vampy look. For a brighter look there is also this white dress from River Island too with gorgeous waist pattern, here. Be careful of spillages on it though!

Same old...same old

 Jumper: Primark   Skirt: H&M   Boots: Primark

Few more pics from the other day, here, another jumper thought would go well with the leather skirt and funky spike boots. God knows why I look so grumpy in the photos, really wasn't, was playing about with the camera self timer and probably one of those times when you are waiting for the timer to go off...and waiting annnnnd then it gets you when you don't think it's going to go off!

Currently watching the rather pregnant sister and not so coordinated brother-in-law trying to assemble their new Christmas tree, is like watching a comedy show where one falls over the other! Shall post up a tasteful and arty Instagram photo when it is completed, (or on fire, whichever comes first!) on Facebook, check out the page, here.

Jumper: River Island   Hand chain: Primark

So this was said jumper from the previous post, here, a long forgotten one that was hiding at the back of my wardrobe. It was from when I was having a phase of buying anything vaguely animal related for clothing. Was bit more for the novelty factor but definitely a good find in this chilly weather, must dig out the biggest scarves I have and, for some reason, only have one pair of mittens atm, cosy but not the most practical!

As said before, here, the hand chains are everywhere at the moment and I have a couple of simple ones like the Urban Outfitters bird one in that post and a couple of just Topshop beaded single chain ones but found this one in Primark last week and liked the over the topness of it! Thought could work quite well with understated outfits of just jeans and basic jumpers to add a little something to it.

Thursday, 29 November 2012 wear

And for the evening...

Top outfit - Jumper: Primark   Skirt: H&M   Boots: New Look   Hat: New Look   Necklace: Topshop
Bottom outfit - Shirt: Primark   Skirt: H&M   Boots: Primark   Watch: Urban Outfitters   Bag: Primark

Have been trying to think of different ways to wear some items, remember did before in this post earlier in the year, here. This leather skirt was one that could transfer from day to night. Loooove the spike boots as a bit more of an edgier feel but could equally wear in the day with some Converse.

Surprised you can't see my breath in the pictures, is so friggin' cold today. Shall post up some photos at later point of the jumper I am now snuggled in! Been packing up some clothes for our move and found it at back of wardrobe, obviously stored and never found again since last winter!

Little bit shine

Jumper: Primark   Shirt: Topshop   Trousers: H&M   Trainers: Converse   Jacket: Primark   Bangle: River Island   Bag: H&M

Have been seriously neglecting the blog this month, have so many ideas and things to show but other things seem to keep getting in the way. Not all bad, though have been fighting off this horrid cold, mentioned in previous post, for bout three weeks now. Eventually caved and doctored it so should hopefully be on the mend now! Also last week finished work project and then got promotion so have been bit crazy finishing off and starting new bits there and this week have just sorted out new flat - am already planning how to decorate before it's all even been finalised!

Today has been spent running round sorting bits for that, grabbing bits for Christmas and, if you have seen Twitter/Facebook feed, ogling the many beautiful doughnuts at Krispy Kreme! (A box of them may have found its way home with us). So many shiny things in stores right now, getting ready for those Christmas outfits, shall do a few favourites soon. You know me and shiny things...can't stay away for long!

Jumper: Primark   Trousers (with belt): Primark   Hand chain: Urban Outfitters   Cross ring: Topshop   Horse shoe bracelet: River Island

Last week have been fighting my own nightmare man flu (aka the common cold!!!), hence the photos inside and the insane love for this cosy jumper. It's just too cold! Didn't really think it through too, taking photos of cream jumper on cream background. So when playing around trying to make the background darker was just messing about with the paint tool and gave this effect. Very simple but I kinda liked it.

No one can not deny the rise of the hand chain, this one is from Urban Outfitters I got last year, would advise to get one with an adjustable ring though coz this one keeps falling off! On the path to recovery now so will venture back into the outside world eventually, do promise!

Feeling...the cold

Jacket: River Island   Jumper: H&M   Leggings: Primark   Boots: New Look   Beanie: H&M   Bag: House of Holland   Necklace: H&M   Fur collar: New Look

When did it become winter?!!! I am not liking this whole getting up in the cold thing! Went out for some food with the family today to one of our favourite places nearby, The Willow Pool Tea Rooms, I have mentioned before in a post, here, as it is one of the strangest places I have been. I have just realised from finding that old post that I am wearing exactly the same jumper that time too, so much for 'wish i wore...', more like 'what i wore...last time'!

What's everyone got planned for Halloween then? Am seeing lots of funky fashion features on websites. I really like on of my favourite bloggers site her collection of Halloween images she does each year, here, from the Cherry Blossom Girls blog. Must admit I do tend to get more excited about fireworks night next week though.

Jumper: H&M   Dress (worn as skirt): Primark   Boots: New Look   Jacket: Primark   Snood: H&M   Necklace: H&M   Watch: River Island

Am finally back home and, although still working on this other project, am not travelling round the country for most of the the moment! So nice to be back in familiar surroundings but it's that time of year where everything is changing. People may scoff at me but I do find this time of the year one of the most beautiful for colours, the drive I have to work at the moment goes down one of those long roads where you pass every colour of leaf you could imagine and it is gorgeous. The above is not that example but us running round under an aerial extreme course, trying not to get hit by people zip wiring from up high!

The dress is one of those reasons I started this blog, it is an item I have had for years but due to the fact the straps are a bit bizarre and the top half doesn't quite fit as I would like I have NEVER worn it but, as I absolutely love the digital/abstract print, could not bring myself to throw it out. When the trend came round again I was glad to have kept it and suddenly didn't know why I hadn't thought to wear it under an oversized jumper?!
