I think about clothes too much

pink-new-look-sweater

Gonna be sticking with the cosy jumpers for a while yet!  My family seem to know my taste so well; this one’s a christmas present from my Nannie and it’s very ‘me’.  She said she’d been reading all my posts and read that I’m obsessed with polonecks. 😛  We make it easy us bloggers, don’t we?  The slightly-short-but-not-cropped length is just right on me too.  Another one that’s had more than plenty wear in it’s short time in my wardrobe.

jumper: New Look | skirt: H&M | boots: Primark

First time these boots have graced the blog even though I’ve had them a little while.  I tend to stick with Primark for heels seeing as I don’t wear them mega often to whittle the cost-per-wear ratio down, and these shoe boots with a little gold detail are my current favourites.  They’re just low enough that I can walk perfectly easily, which is always a bonus!  Not that I can’t walk in high heels, but you know that point where you feel yourself walking differently?  It’s like there’s a critical height or something haha.  Below it and you’re perfectly safe; go higher and you’re in the realm of achy feet and weird walking.  (Or maybe that’s just me)

There’s something to be said for the winter uniform of black tights!  I love my wacky tights too but these work best sometimes.  Plus, Primark hasn’t started selling fleece lined multicoloured, patterened, or lacy tights, yet. 😉  Some people talk about adopting a personal ‘uniform’ of sorts once they don’t have one dictated anymore, but I don’t think I’ve slipped into that yet.  Still wearing reasonably different outfits, as you can probably tell by the hillbilly one day and pale pink the next.

I’ve realised lately just how often I actually think about clothes, and kinda shocked myself tbh!  Not in a materialistic way, just that outfits genuinely interest me a lot.  I’m not too fussed about following trends unless it’s one I really like anyway, but I love spotting trends in what others are wearing, and observing how fashion (of the ‘normal people’, not catwalk, variety) changes over time.  Peoplewatching basically!  I quite often find myself just watching everyone go by.  For example I’ve noticed loads more girls my age-ish lately wearing long and knee high boots, whereas I’m sure last year they weren’t really worn that much amongst teenagers.  Dressing ‘grown up’ seems to be more popular haha.

I’ve only been back at college 2 days but thankfully I’m feeling lots more on top of things already!  Puts me in such a better frame of mind when I don’t feel like I have stuff hanging over me, whatever ‘stuff’ may be.  Looking forward to my day at home tomorrow mind you!  It’s great having just the one day midweek to get yourself together.  Might go for a nice long run too. 🙂  What are your plans for the week?

      She’s one of my most loyal readers! Glad you found some inspiration 😀 I’ve found it seems to go with quite a lot, being grey and white! How have you found the fit?

      I really like the skirt, tends to ahem emphasise the booty area though but I guess that’s the style I can’t wear any other types skater skirts and A line really don’t suit me 🙁 sad times xx

    Your nan did really well with that gift 🙂 Great look. I do get stuck in a fashion rut (mainly because I get super busy and end up going for simple easy choices, rather than picking something different. I know what you mean about heels- in my last post I rave about some heels that are mid height and have inbuilt insoles so that you distribute the weight over your full foot (not just the ball of your foot)- they were a random try on and so comfortable. I have several pairs that I can’t wear for more than an hour without being in agony. I couldn’t wear heels every day, but getting the right flats can be a challenge.

    I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year 🙂

      She did didn’t she 😀 I still have my go to pieces, this jumper being one of them! Those heels sound great. I’d never wear anything more than a low heel for all day anyway, but I really don’t know how the girls that wear stilettos to work manage it!
      Hope you had a lovely holidays too! 😀

    Aww your Nannie reads your blog!? That’s amazing! (I don’t think mine could even turn a computer on!) The jumper really suits you, the whole outfit does, but the jumper is such a lovely soft colour 🙂 I wish I had the body shape to suit cropped tops and pole necks, curse these ‘over averaged sized flotation devices’. They really are a girls worst enemy when it comes to clothes sometimes, and can often be found distorting patterns and clothing shapes…

    I spend a lot of time people watching too, I went to Sheffield yesterday and saw a girl wearing the most amazing dress… and she had paired it with something I’d never have thought to pair it with and I’m slightly jealous of her creativity. Anyway, I’m babbling and this looks like an essay. Oops!

      She does indeed! Mine’s pretty good with her laptop, she’s on Pinterest now! Thank you! I love that it’s such a soft colour. Oh the woes of being well endowed! I’m lucky that I’m just in the middle I think; my extra ‘padding’ let’s say is more in the behind haha.
      Don’t be silly, long comments are the best! Did you find out where her fabulous dress/boots combination was from? 😀

    Hello Lily, this is such a wonderful outfit! This powdery rose is very flattering on you 🙂 Also, great header image, I haven’t been physically on your blog for a while (only through my RSS reader) so I don’t know since when you have it, so, well… I like it!
    I wish you a very happy new year full of luck, love, wealth (let’s face that fact, we all want that!) and everything good, to you and to your family 🙂 May your chitchats never end, I think I am even more enjoying it between two social networks and medias skimmings about those dark evens that occurs right now in France… anyway, let’s stay positive!

      Thank you! It’s about the only shade of pink that does suit me I think! Oh yeah I forgot the layout won’t show up for some people. I changed it a few weeks ago. 🙂 All the best wishes to you and yours too! I’m enjoying writing chitchats and it makes me so happy that you’re enjoying reading! xxx

    I didn’t ask her about the dress/boots because it was at a PGCE interview and I was too nervous to ask! I just sort of sat there admiring it haha xD The boots I have no idea, but I did some Googling and I’ve found the dress! It’s a Cath Kidson clock dress: http://www.cathkidston.com/view-all/clocks-sleeveless-jacquard-dress-1013108?gclid=CjwKEAiAlb6lBRCBw4jC-bb3uykSJAB55Ti9CfIJOU8An0RjcoiOti4QciRdFXAsVSBIi5ks68wE1RoCvhbw_wcB

    It looked a million times better on!

    I absolutely love this outfit! The pink roll neck has to be my favourite component. I’ve only ever owned black ones but I’d love to have one of a different colour 🙂
