First Lady



For some reason, these photos were super-duper over-exposed. My ISO was set to 100. I have no idea what was up with my camera. But anyway, they look kinda rubbish. I also wasn't going to do an outfit post today because the weather has been on and off with snow and wind, but I grabbed a spare 10 minutes to take these.



Yet another colour blocking outfit- I love it! My inspiration for this outfit was no other than the First Lady, Michelle Obama. I was researching a post on Colour Blocking for a site I write for and came across a picture of her in a turquoise dress and a purple cardigan- two things I would never have put together. But I'm very happy with the results!! Don't worry, I'm not going to get all political on you. I am very ignorant when it comes to politics. You can talk to my boyfriend about that, he's the one with the Political Science degree. My Mum wants him to be president- she thinks I'd be a good First Lady, haha.


So today has been exciting. Michelle and I booked our flights to San Francisco!! We've decided not to go to LA because it would be really hard to get about without a car, and we're just going to spend a week in SF. Any advice on things to do and see? I'm also hoping to book Chicago with my boyfriend tomorrow so my bank balance is seriously going to take a hit these next few days!! It's all going to be so worth it though- I'm so excited!!


dress- topshop
cardigan- H&M
shoes- Target
scarf- Forever 21


Well I'm supposed to be going out tonight so I'd better get on with my work first!!
Have an awesome day!!

  1. You look adorable, Charlotte! I love that purple cardigan!! Michelle Obama is super stylish, every time I see her she looks great.

    And that's so exciting about SF!!! You'll have so much fun. I'm a bit jealous about Chicago - I've wanted to go since I was really little. :]

  6. Such a pretty color combination! It really reminds me of spring. :) And the first lady is a great source of style inspiration.

    Ooo, I'm so jealous that you get to go to Chicago - it sounds like a great place. As for where to go in SF, http://wikitravel.org/en/San_Francisco is a great resource. I would recommend going to some places around SF, but it depends on your source of transportation because the public transportation here is pretty bad.

    It's a pity that you can't go down to Southern California though! There's alot of good destinations there (and Mexico is just a few hours away, haha)

    Okay, I'll stop rambling. :x

  12. Hey there! I found your blog through the Fashion and Style Blogger Map, and when I saw that you're in Duluth, MN I got pretty excited...'cause I live just a little bit out of Duluth and am there a few times a week! :) Anyway, love your blog, and maybe we could meet up sometime! :)
