Faux fur, frills and purple shoes...



I woke up today feeling below par. Could of been the couple of shandies I had last night, but as I explained to BF and my colleagues was more likely that I was actually really ill (and it was Monday).

After serveral bouts from the voices in my head, 'staying in bed' put up a good defence, in the end I decided not to be a total wimp and just get up and get on with it.

When I got dressed I put on this new skirt which I found in a charity shop in Bury St Edmunds. It was £2.50. The length felt a tiny bit 'mumsy'. Yes, I am a mum, but I don't really qualify as 'mumsy' however much I wish I did. Having said that, looking at the pic, actually I think it is okay. It may live to see another day this skirt.

I wore the coat nearly all day. Was way too cold today. Not helped by the fact my heating has stopped working in the car. I like my car, but not when it does things like this. It's not content with having just had all new tyres at £100 a piece! Ungrateful I say.

The windows were misting up badly without the aid of some warmth, so as cold as it was, I had to whack the air conditioning on full blast just to see where I was going. My poor car nearly did get a quick kick today had it not been for a) not wanting to damage my purple shoes and b) the fact I suddenly realised I have heated seats... that softened the blow. Sure, I risked frostbite in my hands and face, but my butt was as warm as toast.






ps. Don't forget to enter my second sweetie giveaway, you gotta be innit to winnit...

pps. Horror! my son gave me two round "I've been a good girl" stickers this morning, and popped one on each boobie. It's now 8.30pm and I've just taken them off. Exactly how many people have seen me with these today is uncertain AND slightly worrying.

I am sure they wondered just how good a girl you are with pasties on in the middle of the day! But just let those folks wonder, we know you are fabulous!

That furry collar must feel so nice. And that skirt doesn't look to long to me. Looks just right!

That coat is AMAZING! I feel like a really fabulous coat can take even the "mumsy-est" outfit into clothing overdrive in an instant. I am woe begone because as a college girl who spends her time either in school or an some sort of outdoor kegger, my collection of fabulous fur collared coats don't get much wear.

Jo said...

Hahaha!! Soooo funny about the stickers :D

I must say, the outfit is amazing! I don't think the skirt looks too mumsy at all - and I REALLY love those shoes!!!!

Hi there-hope you feel better today, thats a lovely outfit and I adore faux fur collars too!

Timeless Fashion... said...

You look lovely. As for the 'mumsy' length, that's my regular length and I don't even have kids :) Anyway hope you're feeling better today. All the best.

Aww I'm sorry about the heating in your car. I hope you can get it fixed soon, at a cheap rate. Sigh. I hate car troubles. This summer my air-conditioning went out and it cost me thousands of dollars to fix it. What a nightmare. I hope you have much better luck, dear!
On a positive note, you look GORGEOUS. That coat is so glamorous and I don't blame you for keeping it on. You look like a movie star!

The Small Fabric Of My Life said...

You look great - so not mumsy. The same thing has happened to me - my heaitng packe dup. I have a 45 minute drive to work and now take a hot wate rbottle with me until I can get some time to get the car fixed. I am so busy with work I can't be without the car.

Don't heated seats rock? Love that look. So glam!
