I've been absent for a little while. Rather than boring you with an endless list of excuses I'm just going to continue form where I left off. And go!
I went with a modern-retro look today. This beautiful cobalt blue textured a-line skirt is as bold in colour as it is in shape and looks like it just came out of the sixties. Unfortunately I haven't captured it very well on my camera; self-portraiture is very difficult on a DLSR! Partnering the skirt with this equally as bold over-sized polka dot shirt adds a more modern twist to such an iconic pattern and is ridiculously comfortable. Add a bowler hat, a pair of ankle boots brings the outfit together and completes the look.
Currently it's the Easter holidays and I have less than two days left to the end of lent. I'm not particularly religious but when I realised how dependent I was on chocolate, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to cut back. It's been hard, I'm not going to lie. At particularly low times, I would just dream of Nutella. Yes, I have completely lost it. Although, I nearly ate some last week at a friends birthday meal. I ordered the sticky toffee pudding thinking it was the safe bet, but they had grate chocolate all over the plate and so resulted to wiping it away with a napkin. How embarrassing but you can't deny that I am dedicated!
