Embracing Change


Jacket
Jeans   

'It's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.'


Well it's not quite April 25th yet but we have been blessed with a hint of Spring and I for one am happy to put my heavier coats into retirement, however brief this might be. I've built up a little collection of jackets (I can't say 'sh*cket' I'm sorry) so they came out to play last week finally, without having to be hidden under at least two more layers. I'm also embracing a wide leg rather than skinny - wild, I know.

So onto outfit numero uno above - these jeans are new from H&M as I had a discount code for my birthday. I ordered an 8 which is a size bigger than I'd usually get and when they arrived I was a bit worried as they looked teeny tiny. They do offer a bit of stretch so I can squeeze into them but if you can I'd order a few sizes to try as we all know how batshit H&M sizing is. It's not you, it's most definitely them.

Denim Jacket
Pink Jacket
Trousers
Black Loafers (via my mama's closet)
Suede Loafers Zara (from my mama's closet again, hehe luff you mama!)

These should be a recipe for disaster but so far so good barring a lipstick in the pocket incident. In fact I would call them a 'roaring success.' Again, because they're H&M, they're quite the struggle to get on - they make even me feel like I have a butt (much to my honest delight!) when I'm getting them on but they're worth the time and effort. The denim jacket was bought on the same day as clearly someone forgot what a budget is but as you may tell I have a real thing for these worker-styley jackets - I mean look at the pockets! The collar! I very much fancy it as a shirt also, so it's practically a 2 in 1 piece. The pink jacket is another new in item from H&M, tortoiseshell buttons are another current obsession so obviously I snapped it up as I can't resist this colour either


What new trends are you trying for Spring? 






The Time Is Now



Hello, hello. I'd say something like long time no speak but in the grand scheme of things I guess it's not been too long at all. 

But how are ya? You good? I'm alright, I am now anyway. I wasn't for a little bit but I'm in such a happy mood currently and I'm feeling much more like my old self. I thought it'd be nice (and also a way to save £££ on therapy) to get the *feelings* down, even though God knows if anyone still reads an old fashioned blog these days. However I felt like this was only marginally less embarrassing than having a breakdown on YouTube...

To My Valentine's



WELL. It's been a little while, sorry. Uni work and a wobbly brain has got in the way but there's been fun stuff too so it's not all been doom and gloom (although I sent my pals Valentines not realising we were no longer doing this now they have significant others so guess who feels like a loser now!) But it's fine, I bought some new dresses so whatevs. and mainly why you should love yo'self but I thought seeing as it's V*lentine's D*y I'd talk about the amazing gals in my life.


14/01/2018 - Chunky But Funky



This posting daily thing hasn't gone to plan but to be honest nothing really has this week so it hasn't been personal. It's all 100% my fault though for being the most unorganised person on the planet when it comes to deadlines so I'm just hoping I can start Monday with a clean slate, even though I say this every Sunday eve. I mean even now I should be starting some work but I'm sitting here blogging because obvs showing you my new shoes is far higher on my list of priorities because I am a moron.


Shoes

I really love Docs but they look bloody silly on me so I was on the lookout for something similarly chunky and boyish but just a bit less so, I went into Office to check out (if you think that was because of my Freddydog you are absolutely correct) but saw the Kennedys and it was like a moment, you know the ones. A few people have begged me to stop wearingso these clumpy shoes are a good compromise, no?* Also, I'm enjoying this new lil tradition of buying shoes when I hit a post-transplant milestone (I'm now a year and a half, say whaaat!) . I promise it's not just an excuse to go shoe shopping. Ok, I would have bought them anyway but still it's nice to have meaning behind them. 

*Disclaimer: I will never ever stop wearing my clumpy boots. All the better to kick away irritating people.
