My Week in Outfits

This was a bit of a mental week. I had Friday and this coming Monday off work and so had to fit six days of work into four. When work gets stressful I get tempted to grab those few extra minutes of sleep and just throw on whatever is easiest in the morning, but I try to resist. I just feel so much more self assured when I am wearing something I feel great in and have my makeup on. It sets me up for the day and imbues me with this confidence - like I am in control. I used to think this meant I was a bit superficial or silly, but in reality everyone has different things that make them feel empowered and you need to do whatever works for you. 


I had a bit of a hair mare on Monday. I was meant to get up early and wash my mane before work but the duvet was just to tempting and so I stayed tucked up half an hour longer. I am not such a fan of my hair up - I feel like it makes my face look a lot rounder, and I really wasn't pleased about having my picture taken. But when I looked at the pics I thought it looked quite cute. Might rock a top knot more often. 


Rocha by John Rocha purple frilled dress - Designers at Debenhams
Mustard cardigan - Next

I love the femininity of John Rocha's designs and this outfit makes me feel a little like a prairie princess. Love the mustard and purple together, and the brown boots just finish it off. 


Black suede wedges - Primark

This is my new favourite outfit, and my rubbish mirror selfie does not do it justice! I am planning to take some pics this weekend, and get a post up soonish, so keep your eyes peeled. 


Turquoise cardigan - Marks and Spencer
Brown braided belt - super old
Turquoise necklace - bought on a beach in Thailand

Thursday was a heavy day for me. I'd had very little sleep the night before and was facing a torrid day at work. I love that I have a dress in my wardrobe like my beloved Delores that I can throw on and feel all powerful in. It was still a pretty draining day, but every little helps :)


Lyra dress in Teal - Lady Voluptuous

Apologies for this dreadful photo! Night time mirror selfies are no good, I know this now. But wow, every time I wear this dress I am amazed by its super fierce powers. Alas, it is currently sold out but I am sure Lady Voluptuous will be restocking soon. You can read my full review here

I also had to include this makeup selfie as it is rare that I take a decent one, where my makeup hasn't melted off my face. And I'm loving the hair flowers. Because I have giant hair, for my pinup flowers I tend to use a few little ones instead of big ones because they tend to just compete a bit with my hair. 

Have a good week my lovelies x
