What’s a girl with a fashion blog to do when her mum is visiting her? Why, get her to be her personal photographer of course! So, thanks to my very patient mum, I am delighted to bring you a kind of ‘old school’ post. A few years ago I would share what I wore in a week on a fairly regular basis – sadly I am no longer able to do this. But, as it’s something I enjoyed doing so much back in the day, I thought I might as well revisit this format for the sake of nostalgia. From casual to dressy to ever so slightly patriotic, here is what I wore during the week of March 11th to 17th.
Tuesday: Mango coat / Dorothy Perkins jumper (seen here) / Vila skirt (seen here) / Beanie (seen here) and ring, gifts / Lulu Guinness bag (bought at a sample sale) / Vans trainers (seen here) / Desigual umbrella (seen here)
Wednesday: River Island cardigan (seen here) / Glamorous dress / ASOS belt / Calzedonia tights / Lavand bag / Hobbs shoes / Beanie, as before
Friday: All details in this post.
Sunday: Mango jumper / Topshop skirt / Primark earrings / Zara bag (seen here) / Miss Selfridge shoes
First up, a little disclaimer – my hair is not a weird shade of grey as Thursday’s picture might suggest, that’s just me needing to sharpen up my photo-editing skills. But other than that, I like how this week does encompass quite a few aspects of my current style – casual but colourful, girly and fun, relaxed and a little chic… and a personal take on Saint Patrick’s Day! I couldn’t resist wearing green yesterday as I love this Mango jumper I bought a few months ago – I dug out my green bag from Zara and added this little tartan skirt from Topshop. The fact that it’s tartan and therefore sort of ties in with Irish culture is a pure coincidence though! Also, it was nice to wear a mini skirt again and actually feel pretty confident in it – although I gotta say, this skirt is VERY short…
Also, as much as I’ve been enjoying these cosy outfits, I really can’t wait to get my Spring wardrobe crackin’ – bring on dresses, legs on view and lighter jackets!
