Hi-vis done right today! Always a few “no-ones’ gonna miss you today” comments whenever this coat comes out. Bright yellow can easily slip into kids’ TV presenter territory but hopefully short (very short) skirt and heels takes it away from CBeebies. This duffel coat was bought for starting secondary school would you believe, until I realised the ‘blue or black coats only’ rule. Sooo glad to be rid of that. I feel like a total broken record saying that I’m still wearing clothes from my tweenage years, but I’m calling it justification for the amount of clothes I seem to have! One or two people at college have asked me how I nearly always wear something different and my answer is simple: I don’t stop wearing clothes just because they’re 4, or 5, or 6 years off the shelf. Guess I just had good taste. ;D Mixing my own handmades in there helps too, but unfortunately I can’t take credit for any of today’s items. Plus, I’m forever stealing from my mum’s wardrobe too, boots are the case in point today!

Who else has this week off? A full week of people to see, places to go, things to do is great by me. I love having my time filled. Still time for plenty spontaneous stuff to though, which is just how I like it! Chilled out catchups with friends are always needed and I’m gonna *try* to take my workouts up a notch too, because I can. 😀
Ok so now I realise I may have gone slightly overboard with the stripes…
Somebody help me out with Halloween costume ideas! A crazy hair/makeup look that I can easily throw together an outfit around? Searching for Halloween looks brings back all manner of extravagant getups that must take months to prepare. Let me know if you’ve any more low-key ideas! What are you going as?
