At It Again

This morning, I was feeling really uninspired with my wardrobe. I felt like I'd made a bit of a rod for my own back with this post. I felt as though I'd backed my style into a corner a bit and tried so hard to define my "new" style that I felt as though I had lost touch with three-quarters of my wardrobe. I looked at my outfit list and nothing was jumping out at me. So I was drying my hair and reading my RSS reader on my phone when I stumbled across this outfit on Veronika's blog. Yep, I'm outfit stealing again.



It was absolutely perfect and I had to recreate it. It got me out of my slump and really inspired me. I just feel a bit guilty about completely stealing her outfit! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattering right? I am so crazy in love with this tartan shirt, and these jeans are amazing. They are the sister jeans of these ones. Someone asked last time if they are low waisted, well they aren't! I hate low-waisted jeans so these are perfect.

So today I had a meeting with my tutor about my ACS dissertation (I actually have two dissertations- one for English, one for American Studies (ACS)) and I'm having a bit of a freak out about it. I've been a little more relaxed with my work since Christmas and I know now that I really need to get on it, which means being in the library most days by 9am and staying til my dance classes at 7.

Anyway, because of this, I'm going to struggle to take photos as regularly for my blog over the next few months until both my dissertations are handed in at the end of April. I'm going to try to take photos on a Monday and Wednesday, and keep on with my remix posts on a Saturday and Week in Photos on a Sunday, but the fact is, I love outfit posts. They are my reason for blogging. But I want to be able to blog on the days that I can't take photos, so my question is, what do you want to see? I've been thinking about what I like, and what I don't like, to see on other peoples' blogs aside from outfit photos. I'm not a fan of "wishlist" posts, or "sneak peeks" of new collections. But I do like inspiration posts and tips posts, and occasionally links posts and "how to wear posts" (for example, one piece, three ways). I'm just not sure what I should do. I love writing "tips" posts, but I don't feel as though I know enough about anything to do tips, and furthermore I do a lot of posts like this for my articles on other websites. I sometimes like just 
writing and you guys have usually given me a good response to my posts where I feel that I'm just going on with myself! So, what would you guys want to read?

So, I'd better get to bed. Our internet is being crazy-slow tonight and it's taken me almost two hours to upload these pictures! Don't forget to let me know what you want to see on my blog in the comments!

Have a lovely evening, guys!

  1. Ahhh I love the way you recreated this look, you "stole" it but totally made it your own. I love the plaid top with the sweater over it. So wonderful with the leather jacket!! I really like tips posts, like 1 piece 3 ways :)

  2. Love this!  I don't know who Veronika is, so I don't feel bad saying I like the way you wore it better. Even if you did steal it.  Hehe.  NO JUDGEMENT HERE.

    I think whatever you want to post is fine!  I read all your posts, and I do like the ones where you're just writing about whatever is on your mind, but if you want to give them more of a direction...hmm.  I don't know.  I'll think on this.  And probably never get back to you on it.  But at least I made an effort.

    P.S.  I KNOW I owe you a FB message.  This surgery stuff is totally throwing me for a loop, and I'm trying to get at least one week ahead in my classes so I don't have to worry about it next week, but I don't even have the time to finish this week's stuff and it's so frustrating!  But I will get back to you.  Promise.

  4. I loved Veronika's outfit, and I love that you made it a little bit more edgy with the leather jacket! You look great in jeans :) 
    I always enjoy your writings, your tips are very useful and realistic! x

  5. Haha, I saw that too and almost wore the same thing today! I decided to go with a plaid skirt instead (but I'm keeping plaid-under-white in my inspiration file).

  6. The tartan under the white is lovely. I love the little looped belt too.
    I feel the same way about 'tips' posts. I love reading them from others but feel like I don't know enough to write one myself. I'd say just go for it.
    I do usually enjoy the 'how I wore this piece' posts as well. When bloggers back track to something they've worn multiple times and how they styled it each time.

  7. Really like how the different lengths and textures of the tops go together (: Off to go and take a peek at Veronika's blog, because she is adorable!

  8. You look incredibly cool in this outfit! I'm in love with your jacket and boots. I've been wanting nice flat boots just like that for a while now and can never find any.

  9. I love both yours & Veronika's version of this outfit! The textures and lengths work really well together.  I love tips & the "one outfit many ways" thing, but I also like hearing about whatever is on peoples minds.

  10. hey Charlotte, its not called outfit stealing if you add ur own twist to it (the leather jacket of course!).... call it inspiration haha. i love this outfit, and Veronika's too. I love the layering!
    regarding the post, don't pressure urself too much on what kind of things you'd post about honey. just write about anything that pops on ur mind, whether they're tips or inspirational posts. as bloggers, we all know there really are times when we cant fulfill our blogging duties (i.e. outfit posts) because we just cant. im sure ur readers will understand if u post other things for a while, as long as ur updating, we know ur still there. good luck with your dissertations!
