Out of your Comfort Zone

29 January 2017

Literally vomiting at my double chin in this pic....

Nothing rarely catches your eye until someone else brings it to your attention. We're always so stuck in our ways and a style that when we see something that isn't the 'norm' we simply ignore the fact it's there. That was how this incredible pinafore dress made its way into my wardrobe. In an impromptu visit to our local H&M, my friend Donica and I were simply having a little browse when she came across this dress on the mannequin. I'll be honest I didn't think it was nice until she said it was... And I then tried it on and OMG…. How it made me feel. I mean I was a hot mess after a gruelling boot camp session but nonetheless, it looked good on me, I liked it, so I bought it.

I was totally out of my comfort zone when figuring out it to style it. Frills - yuck! Houndstooth - erm no. Tight-fitting? - get me to the gym asap! But I opted for the simple look as the dress has so much character anyway. I could wear this in the warmer months with a pair of white trainers and a t-shirt or pull a chunky knit over it paired with black ankle boots for a more conservative look.  I'm looking forward to playing with the different styles on this one.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this bargain of a coat from Primark. I found this gem in the sales pre-Christmas for only a tenner! YES! I.KID.YOU.NOT! It's pretty flimsy and well worth the ten pounds but it's so lush that I couldn't resist.

Right Now...
It's Sunday! I have to say I've had the most chilled yet eventful weekend in a long time. The past weekends have consisted of either partying and nursing my hangover all weekend, or staying in all weekend due to the crazy week. I actually feel good right now, like I can start the week off right. 

This Week...
Has been cray. Work has officially taken over my life but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I enjoy what I do which can't be said for some. I did, however, attend a really inspiring talk on Tuesday night held by Future Girl Corp, they offer talks and advice on female start-ups, addressing their trials and tribulations and how we can avoid them. They're held each month and I definitely recommend attending one!

Looking Forward To...
BERLIN BITCHES! This was an off the cuff decision to visit Berlin, I desperately needed a little break (Christmas break doesn't count!) and I didn't want to be here during Valentines, for obvious reasons. So my friend and I booked flights to Berlin last week and the rest is history. We have no idea what we're actually going to do, but Berlin has been a city I wanted to visit for ages. If you've been let me know the go-to places in the comments below!
