Identity Crisis




Another really-not-very-me outfit that I strangely like. I have really been all about the loose, chunky layers recently and I think that is something that will continue well into next season. And jeans! I never wear jeans! But they are my new Dorothy Perkins skinny jeans and they are so comfy. Seriously cannot praise their jeans in terms of fit enough. This was a real thrown-on outfit. I had a doctor's appointment at 10.20, and of course, was on the last minute because I decided I had time to work out before going, and threw this on. Originally it was with shorts and knee high socks, but while I love knee socks with skirts, I usually look like a hooker in shorts and knee socks. So I threw on my jeans, new winter boots, and my new cropped jumper- with a wine-coloured tank to protect my modesty. It's really interesting how our personal style can evolve. I'm really excited to see what I come up with for the new season.




Do you like my nails? If you follow me on Twitter (and if you shouldn't, you should :]]) you'll have been bombarded with images of them yesterday. I had my last day at work yesterday (I can't wait nail varnish at work because I work with food), so last night I came home and did leopard nails!! I followed this tutorial (including the colours) and they look amazing. I'm a recovering nail biter and only stopped biting them a few weeks ago. They are still quite weak and break a lot but I am so proud of how long they're getting!! The squiggles are as neat as I would like, and one of them smudged this morning, but I'm proud of my first attempt.

 

This is not the mustard jumper I mentioned on Tuesday. Or the other mustard jumper I mentioned on Tuesday. I tried on 6 mustard jumpers in 2 days. That's a lot of jumpers. But this one won. It's perfect and I love it. I have so many ideas for ways to wear it. I also love the combination of mustard and wine/maroon/burgundy so I decided to layer it over my purpley tank. These are my new winter boots too. They're a little ostentatious but gorgeous.

I'm off to a fashion show tonight with my friends which should be really fun. Hoping to get lots of pictures and get someone to take a few pictures of my outfit because I've got a few busy days coming up so I might not get a chance to take outfit photos. I'm off to Birmingham on Saturday for my friends' birthday. Can't wait to be back in Birmingham, to see my friends, to see my new house and to get all dressed up and go out!!



Have a fabulous day!!

  8. Great outfit, loving the boots. Too bad boots like that would mean frozen (quite literally) toes for me here in Canadian winter. Great jumper too... I need more of those this year, all my others are soooo big ahhh... an excuse to shop heehee. And those jeans look amazing on you! Almost makes me want to start wearing pants again.
