keeping it casual

16/02/2013


what i'm wearing:
zara leather look sleeveless tunic
levi's distressed high waisted shorts (similar via eBay)
primark khaki oversized cardigan
office edgy 2 buckle boots
topshop chain necklace
MK watch

you know where you have days where you simply just want to throw on some clothes on and get on with your day? this was one of those days. i had to be up at half five to start work at seven, but as i was going to be seen by others the last thing i want to do is look like a slob. so i tried my best to look presentable. i know this necklace is featured in almost every single outfit post i do, but i have learnt to love it. originally just an impulse buy as i was under pressure to pick an outfit before going somewhere i was a bit disappointed that i had to pay £20 for it. i've definitely got my moneys worth from it though haven't i? i really should buy some more jewellery though. this primark cardigan is absolutely one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, i love the colour. for £12 can you really moan? they have plenty of other colours too. i loved these shoes when i post about them at the end of december but because they were so painful to wear after half an hour they ended up being neglected. not anymore! i have decided i just have to fight through the pain because they are so gorgeous.

this hasn't got anything to do with my post but i have been really overwhelmed recently. don't get me wrong i absolutely love blogging. the response i get from my readers and companies is amazing but anyone who says blogging doesn't take a lot of dedication is wrong. i'm really struggling to juggle photographing and writing posts, responding to e-mails, my relationship, work and giving myself some chill time! it's crazy but by just giving myself one day off from blogging on valentines day put a complete spanner in the works. i think my main reason for this is because i'm so unorganised. the only calendar i use is the one in my phone for my shifts at work so i really need to get myself an organiser! any recommendations would be fab.

please check out my blog sale as everything has been reduced and must go!

  12. I love those shorts.

    It so easy to feel overwhelmed, sometimes a few days off is all you need. I recently invested in a hardback diary and take it everywhere with me, it's so much easier now to juggle 2 jobs, a post grad course, producing 2 festivals and update my little blog. I totally understand your pain! xx

  14. Your unplanned/lazy outfits are more impressive than my thought out outfits. I'm so jealous! I know exactly how you feel, I don't have nearly as many followers as you do, but if I don't post for 2-3 days, I feel so bad about it.

    I did buy an organiser, but I didn't really feel motivated to use it... I might invest in a cuter one in hopes of organising my life a little better..

    1. Thanks Josie, that's so lovely of you to say! It's probably because blogging is still pretty new to me. Once I get a hang of it I think I'll be fine. Just right now it's difficult :) x
