I don't have any style and I'm not really that interested in clothes, although it seems other people are! What I wear changes almost beyond recognition each day and so of course where random bits have been left lying around and are thrown on together, the result is pretty disastrous. I really like Does My Bum Look 40 in this? mainly because the words make me giggle, is it bad to say all of the retailer pics leave me a bit cold? Although I do love to see what Kat has been wearing. I also like to read Ash's posts about properly wearable clothes, or Fiona who always looks like she enjoys every minute of her blogging.
Since I have no style and a totally random mismatch of clothes in my wardrobe the chances of wearing anything remotely coordinated for more than one day are pretty much nil.
This is why last week was quite an unusual occurrence, four days on the trot with clothes that could have come from one person, who stuck to a middle class mummy, slightly boho, White Company-ish style...err does this blogging thing have more influence than I would like to admit?
I know that I probably should brush my hair, accessorise or even just move the steamer and my washing that is drying from the background, but this blogging malarkey has to take up no time or it wouldn't happen. That's how I know I'm not channelling the immaculate Tabitha from Bourbon and Pearls, for whom this is all a tad too laissez Faire.
I was going to chuck my 7 for All Mankind grey skinny, Kate Moss on a bad day, chav jeans, but they were 90 quid so I am trying to work out a way to wear them. The raggedy sequin top is a brand called Tiara, and yes it was left out on a chair from a night out (I couldn't bear to pay drycleaning after a two hour wear so decided to wear the next day). I quite like it under the purple cardi with the jeans and pinky daps.
The next outfit is definitely going for the White Company look, sleeveless cardi 99p from Ebay (originally M & S), jeans inherited from overgrown teenage offspring and top from a label called Women like us, such a nice idea but not sure it has survived in these uncertain times. The broiderie anglaise and leather bag was from a shop in the Caribbean and is simply an attempt to remember that it is meant to be Summer.
cricket sale and high necked Valentino vest. Bag Karen Millen from Bicester (super cheap as I am not sure this boho type look is the average KM shopper's thing)
