Outfit – Dress: Lady Vintage, Boots: Dorothy Perkins (yonks ago), Cardigan: Monsoon (yonks ago)
Sometimes the simplest outfits are the best. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the layers and ridiculous jewellery most of the time. But last weekend I really fancied the plain and simple. Even my hair was a simple style, just making pin curls the night before for curly craziness the next day. And that is it. My outfit is just a dress, boots, cardi and curly hair.
It has been quite a while since I last shot an outfit post. The summer just does not inspire me the same way Autumn does (I have already mentioned how much I love Autumn). Also, if I am totally honest, I have not been feeling the most confident recently, well…more self-conscious than usual. It’s weird, I think my body is starting to change at the moment and I am having minor style awareness issues to go along with it.
I guess we all go through moments when everything in our wardrobe looks like crap. Or our weight fluctuates. Or even our dimensions shift a bit. Sometimes it’s the other way round, the stress in our every day life makes it harder to feel inspired by our wardrobe.
I have not felt inspired for a while.
But I did start a temp job a few weeks ago after a little period on unemployment. It has been a tough summer so it is a little relieving to have an income, however small it might be. So I let myself have one new purchase to cheer myself up as a treat for my hard work. Because despite all the work I do, day-job and night-job (blogging etc.) I am still very hard on myself for not doing more. There are just not enough hours in the day! (If only I didn’t need sleep to function, I’d get loads more done).
So today’s post is a note to myself: be nice to yourself.
