So you don't wanna hear about my good day?




I wasn't going to blog today, I just couldn't be bothered. But I liked my outfit (which was inspired Jennifsieh) and on the days when I don't want to blog I usually feel better when I blog. And I did. I have my Mum to thank for that. A few days ago I was upset or moody about something or other, and my Mum told me to take off and redo my makeup and then I'd feel better. I was skeptical, but it worked. So today, feeling a little stressed, I curled up with Glamour for half an hour, had some "me-time" and then redid my makeup, before heading out for these photos. They aren't my favourite- my hair is a bit messy- but I'm glad I took some time to take them.




I had a bit of a cardigan crisis this morning. I decided to go for an all-brown toned outfit, but my brown cardigan was a little too auburn, my mustard cardigan was too yellow and while I liked my maroon cardigan, it just didn't work. So I gave up and went for the trench. I think it would have been too hot for both, in reality. It's perfect trench weather at the moment. I also wore these shorts from Matalan to celebrate the last day of the Matalan Style Project. The results are announced tomorrow- eee!!

Today has been a busy day. I had class this morning at 9am (hence the rushed hair), and then I ran into town at 12 to get a few things altered. I'm excited to get them back tomorrow. I've never had something altered before but I'm glad I went. I'm already considering taking in more stuff- it's like getting a whole new wardrobe!! Oh and I also had an amazing meeting with my support tutor today- he used to live in Chicago!! It's funny, I said to both my dad and Briony "guess where my tutor used to live?" and they both said "Minnesota". Then I said "no, my second favourite place!!" and they both guessed Chicago!! The talk went so well. I shall paraphrase...

Him: What do you want to do when you finish uni?
Me: I want to be a journalist
Him: Have you done any internships?
Me: Yes.
Him: Where?
Me: The Express Subbing Office, The Manchester Evening News and Love it! magazine
Him: That's great. Do you have a blog?
Me: Yep.
Him: What kind of blog?
Me: I have a style blog (I still feel a little awkward saying that!!)
Him: How many followers do you have?
Me: 330. About 700 views a day.
Him: Wow, that's just great. That's really what interviewers want to hear.

Yay!! Success!! Let's just hope all this hard work pays off eventually.



So that's all from me. I'll be back tomorrow!!

  1. I love the shorts with the leopard print!! I hate having cardigan issues, I feel like half the time I never have the right shade. Sounds like a great day in the end

  6. I usually force myself to take outfit photos even when I don't feel like it, just because blogging is pretty much the only steady thing I've stuck to in a very long time. I really don't want to let myself slip and stop posting altogether, which would be a little too easy sometimes. Little colour differences can drive me batty sometimes because I'm very matchy-matchy.

  8. I feel awkward telling people I have a style blog, too. Why is that? Ugh. But yay for impressing the tutor.

    I like the colors in your outfit. See, I probably would have paired a black top with the rust colored bottoms (in fact, I did. You'll see in an upcoming post. I'm backed up by like two weeks). I like that you went with another brownish tone on top. It's refreshing.

    P.S. I bought you a postcard. Send me your address!

  9. I really love your hair in these pictures! I'm so excited for my hair to be long enough to style and do things with. :] I also really like this outfit. I love trench coats!! I feel like I need an unlimited supply of cardigans - I wish there was a website that sold all cardigans in every single color. Like a "We Love Colors" of cardigans, ha ha. :] I just need a rainbow of them.
