Outfit of the Day – Warm Summer Christening

Outfit of the Day

Warm Summer Christening

The weather has been quite strange this summer where I live. One week I was wearing a jumper in the office, the next I was in a summer dress and sandals. It’s been humid and cloudy, we’ve had brilliant sunshine, we’ve had torrential rain. And I never really know what to wear to Christening’s anyway. I wanted to be dressy and look good, but it also needed to be respectable enough for Church.

Haul – H&M, New Look, Primark, The Body Shop, Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams – April 2014

April 2014

I’ve done so much shopping lately, and I don’t really have any excuse, but I thought I’d share what I’ve been buying recently. This is an embarrassingly large haul, but some of it my sister got me for Easter, so I don’t feel too bad, and some things I am classing as essentials. Also, due to my blogging schedule, things are things I bought in April.

Starting with H&M, I got this slightly oversized jumper with black writing and a picture of the Eiffel Tower on it. This was a total bargain at only £5.99 and it is so soft and comfortable.

Outfit of the Day – Relaxed City Sightseeing on a Warm Spring Day

Relaxed City Sightseeing on a Warm Spring Day

So this is the second Outfit of the Day post from my trip to Paris back at the end of March. This is the outfit I wore on our second and last full day in Paris, when we had a much more relaxed schedule than the first day. You can see my Outfit of the Day post for our first day by clicking here. On this day we went to the Palace of Versailles and then went in Notre Dame Cathedral on our way back to the hotel. This was my favourite day, I absolutely loved Versailles, particularly the gardens and especially the music gardens.

Busy Day City Sightseeing in Spring

So this is an Outfit of the Day post from my trip to Paris with my mum at the end of March, but due to having other things I wanted to post, I somehow haven’t got any of my Outfit of the Day posts scheduled and up yet. I hope you don’t mind that this is slightly old, as I really wanted to share this. And pretty much every photo of me in this outfit, I am posing in front of some Paris landmark.

Haul – New Look, Boots, Avon, British Home Stores, Primark and H&M – March 2014

Haul

New Look, Boots, Avon, British Home Stores, Primark and H&M

March 2014

Once again, as in my last haul post, many of these items have been bought with my holidays in mind. I’m trying not to get too excited too early, but its difficult. I can’t wait to have some time off work! This is the accumulating of several shopping trips with my mum and sister over the course of March, I did not buy this all on one day. But expect a good couple more haul posts from me, I really need to get my holiday wardrobe sorted and I need to do it now, because my wages closer to my holidays I’ll want to use for spending money.

Firstly from New Look I got this lovely casual blue summer dress. I’m nor entirely sure if I will take this away with me or if I will wear it to work this summer.

Outfit of the Day – Winter Day At The Shopping Mall

Winter Day At The Shopping Mall

I really like doing Outfit of the Day posts, even though my knowledge of fashion is minimal. So I thought I’d share with you what I wore when I went on a shopping trip to the Metrocentre (a really large shopping mall in the north east of England) with my mum and sister the other day.

Outfit of the Day – Casual Autumn Night At A Show

Outfit of the Day

Casual Autumn Night At A Show

It seems like ages since I’ve done an Outfit of the Day post. I’ve thought about and even planned out in my head a couple over the last two months or so but I never got around to actually doing them. But anyway, on to this actual post.

So the other night mum and I went to see Jesus Christ Superstar. And although this can be classed as a theatre show, this show was not playing in theatres but instead in arenas. Therefore I didn’t feel the need to go all theatre dressy and actually dress up. Instead I went decidedly casual. Seeing Jesus Christ Superstar (especially with a cast including Tim Minchin, Ben Forster, Melanie Chisholm, Chris Moyles and Alex Hansen) was a dream come true for me and I really didn’t want to have to spend time worrying about what I was wearing. My main aim was to be comfortable, there was no way I was going to risk missing anything or not giving the show my full attention because I felt uncomfortable.

Outfit of the Day – Lunch and Shopping with Mum on a Warm Autumn Day

Lunch and Shopping with Mum on a Warm Autumn Day

So yesterday I met my mum once she’d finished work and we went for lunch and done a bit of shopping. Now, it was one of those days yesterday when I really didn’t know what to wear. It wasn’t overly warm, but it wasn’t overly cold either. And with going out for lunch and shopping I never really want to wear a jacket or a coat because when I’m in and out of shops I’m always taking it on and off.

So in the end I ended up chucking on a long-sleeved grey knit jumper dress, which has a really nice yellow, blue and white detailing on the hem. And I just wore it over some plain black leggings and my knee high brown boots. The dress is from New Look and my mum got me it last Christmas. I’m pretty certain my leggings were just from Primark.

Outfit of the Day – Autumn Shopping Trip

Outfit of the Day

Autumn Shopping Trip

So today, my mum, younger sister and I went shopping to York, which is a lovely historic city about an hour’s drive from where we live. And it was one of those lovely autumn days which I love. There was a clear bright light blue sky and the sun was shining, but goodness was there a nip in the air, it did feel quite cold this morning. We set off quite early and when we arrived it was probably only about 8°C (about 46°F) although by the time we left it had got up to about 12°C (about 53°F).

I always struggle with what to wear when I go shopping, particularly at this time of year, as I don’t want to wrap up too warm as the shops are always really warm with their heating on, and then outside it’s cold.

York is a pretty big place, so comfortable shoes are a must. I wore what is probably my most worn type of shoes which is my black style ugg boots. They are so comfy, they’re warm and they pretty much go with any outfit I can chuck together. Mine are from River Island, but you can get similar from loads of places. These also featured in my last Outfit of the Day post, to check that out click here.

Outfit of the Day – Fresh Autumn Morning at the Seaside

Outfit of the Day

Fresh Autumn Morning at the Seaside

Welcome to my first outfit of the day post! It’s one of my favourite types of day today. It’s a beautiful autumn day today here in the north east of England. We’ve got a bright blue sky, but there is a nip in the air, it is quite cool. But I love days like that, it just feels so fresh! It’s wasn’t too cold, just nice and fresh and crisp. It was about 10°C, which is about 50°F.

And I’ve spent most of the day at the beach and it was lovely. I love the seaside. But it was definitely not shorts and flip-flops weather, more like jumper, coat and boots weather. I don’t actually have a photo of me wearing the outfit, although I have a picture of the clothes, as no-one knows that I keep a blog, and I didn’t feel like answering questions on why I wanted my photo took.

What I was wearing is dark denim skinny jeans, tucked into black ugg style boots. A beigey coloured knit jumper with hints of red, yellow and blue in it over a white strap top, a pale blue scarf with a grey floral print on it and a blue coat.
