Sorry for being such a bad blogger but it seems that there never is enough time (yet strangely there IS time for reading large amounts of fan fiction regarding a particular pair that I ship, but each to their own). I have a stupid exam next week, one which I am in no way prepared for (typical) and so I should be spending all of my time studying. However, given that I have ignored this blog for way too long, I back with an Outfit August post.
July 10th is my birthday and we had just gotten back from London the night before, I took an additional day off from work to unwind post holiday. I spent the day lazying about and then in the evening M and I headed out to one of our favorite restaurant for a lovely birthday dinner.
The time has finally come to share my London holiday. We arrived on Thursday, took the train from the airport and then went to our hotel. We had dinner at an Italian restaurant and then we went to one of our favorite London hang-outs: the Bohemia Lounge bar. This place is bloody amazing with the best cocktails ever!
I wore this outfit two weeks ago to M’s nephew’s birthday party. I curled my hair for the event, because I didn’t want to have the same old hairstyle I always wear (actually, I have three that I rotate: hair down, hair in a pony tail or a side braid). I centered this outfit around the bag. It’s from Skinny Dip and it’s the ice cream clutch. Doesn’t fit much but it’s super cute anyways.
A while ago M and I went to see the movie Spy (absolutely loved it!) and this is what I wore. I had my glasses on because there was a chance I would be driving and I based my whole look on my glasses.
Usually I’m all about the short skirts and mini-dresses (especially in combination with black opaque tights) but come the warm weather, I also gravitate towards comfortable carefree midi lengths. This skirt in particular is a favorite of mine, it’s from Topshop and I absolutely adore it (the gingham print, the style and cut, the material, it’s all good.)
Another belated outfit post, this was worn to M’s friend’s birthday party. I had a totally different outfit planned but then I went with this one instead. The dress I had originally wanted to wear was this one:
Sometimes I wear an outfit that consists of favorite pieces and it makes that outfit really special. I have a lot of “favorites” but these are favorites in the truest sense. The shoes are from Melissa (definitely my favorite shoe brand ever) and they are the tangerine bow flats (I also have them in black and in yellow). I wear the black ones the most but I think these red ones are my favorite. Something about red shoes just makes me instantly happy.
Just a quick post today (where has all the time gone??), but here’s a recent (the weekend before last) outfit photo. M and I went food shopping and I wore a simple all-black outfit featuring these much-worn Melissa shoes (they used to be one of my most worn pig walking shoes actually).
There’s really not that much I can say about this outfit, just some really old pieces and comfy clothes. The only interesting thing was that I put in some effort with my hair do (or more effort than usually) as I braided my fringe (I’m sort of growing it out now, not sure what I will do with it yet). Anyways, here’s to a productive work week and see you tomorrow.
This outfit is from about two weeks ago – I have a bit of a backlog of photos going on as I haven’t been posting much lately. Sorry! I’ll hopefully be posting more these days. Anyways, M and I went to see the Mad Max film again and this is the outfit I wore.
