I think for the first time in my life I am glad the weekend is totally over, my face has stopped looking puffy and a couple of days being incredibly lazy sorted my cold right out. Thanks for all your sweet comments, and an extra thanks to all my new followers. I hit 100 on GFC on Saturday and did a wee happy dance around the room. I've always said I would keep blogging even if no body read, but I've got to admit it does feel nice to know that people want to come back and find out what is going on in my life.
I was still feeling a little bit tender yesterday, so I didn't so much other than some grocery shopping and taking the dogs for a long walk. I think they were getting cabin fever in the house this weekend, well, Mania at least. Scally has spent the past three evenings hiding under the bed shaking because of the fireworks. We had this problem over Summer too, but after seeing how unhappy she was the past few days I am definitely planning on being out of the city for New Year. You know something is wrong when your perpetually hungry dog has no interest in bacon. At least it is all over for now.
This outfit is a nice mix of old and new items, the dress and cardigan are both purchases from this year,but I have had the scarf and shoes for quite a while. I actually thought Mania had totally destroyed these shoes during her chewing phase, but I took a second look at them recently and buying a pair of insoles has totally saved them. There is a little bit at the back that has obviously been chewed, but I'm hoping no one will look at the back of my feet for too long. I love the colour, and they are surprisingly comfortable and good quality for Primark shoes.
I've been really bad lately for ignoring the older items in my closet, so I'm trying to go to the effort of including at least one item I have had for over a year in each of my outfits. It's proving surprisingly difficult, seeing as I go with the same formula of dress, cardigan and tights most days. You would think that blogging about my style would encourage me to expand my style horizons a bit, but other than teaching me a lot about my body shape, it seems to have cemented whatever style I already had. I suppose that is a good thing though, at least I haven't fall down the hole of buying things purely for the sake of blogging. I've actually never been happier with my wardrobe than I am at the moment. Have any of you guys ever tried out a trend you weren't particularly keen on just so you could blog about it?
