So in the Stillness of the Moment Make Sure You Take a Polaroid Picture

Lately, I've just wanted to keep things simple. With starting a new job next week, I've been enjoying one last week to relax before the stress of a new routine. I've been doing a lot of running, a lot of watching Homeland (I've just finished season 1) and spending a lot of time in my onesie. And in cosy outfits like this. Sure it's not wildly exciting (although this jumper is new and I LOVE it. And it was £10 in the Oasis sale) and once upon a time when I first started this blog I wouldn't even have posted an outfit like this. But I think my blog has changed and I think blogging in general has changed, and we're not longer reluctant to show what we really wear and that it's not all tutus and high heels. I digress!

I am wildly unproductive when I'm not busy. As in, when I have one or two things on my to-do list I will stare at the list all day and not get them done, but when I have nine or ten things to do, everything will get done. And I hate it! I hate having lazy, unproductive days (although arguably, I am such a Type A personality that I should take advantage of the rare occasions when I can actually relax) so I decided to give myself lots of things to do today. I was due for a strength training day today but my body is exhausted and my calves are sore from having run 16 miles this week so far since Monday, so I decided instead to walk into Stockport as my cross training (it's about 2 and a half miles), take some returns to the post office, have a mooch around and buy ingredients for baking. I ended up wandering into the Oxfam shop and buying two books and a DVD. Then another book from British Heart Foundation. To match the 6 other second-hand books I've bought this week. What can I say, I like books! I then came home as I had to wait for some packages to arrive for my Mum and baked some brownies and then I had an article to write. I've had a lovely last week off work, seeing Steph and Phil and relaxing, but I'm really excited to start my new job next week!
I don't know how posting will be next week with starting my new job, but I have been working on last year's Year in Outfits (I knowwwwwww it's 10th January!) so hopefully I'll have that up next week.
I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I buy a lot of secondhand books too. Usually classics if I see them. I get other ones from the library. Hooray for cheap/free reading materials!
    Also I know what you mean about being unproductive. My thing was my sleep schedule was ridiculous and I had no mornings to get anything done at all. I rarely relax though so I guess it's okay.
    Annnd this outfit is so cute. I really like seeing casual outfits like this too. Your new sweater is adorable and I really love the spiky necklace paired with it.

  6. That jumper was clearly made with bloggers in mind. I think I'm going to Oasis tomorrow...
