i could have sworn that i was right, over and over..

this is one of the outfits i wore last week, but i have to admit i'm not really sure about it..

on their own, i really like all of it's components, but do you ever get the feeling that an outfit works a lot better in theory, than when you actually put it into practice..

the jersey floral print cardi /' shrug thing is lovely, i like the length of the sleeves, the print and the fact it has that one big giant button to draw it all together..

the striped dress is great on it's own, and i love the colour of the woolen tights i got from peacocks.."oxblood"  :)

i think that because the dress is a little loose anyway, the loose shape of the cardi just made me feel a little frumpy or something, as the outfit made me grumpy most of the day :S does anyone else ever get that?!


  1. Oh I always get that. I call them my "I feel like a tramp" days.

    I really like all the parts of this outfit but I think perhaps a different shaped cardigan might be better if you're worried about the dress being loose?

  2. I know what you mean about feeling frumpy. I usually throw on a belt to pull the outfit together xx

  3. I know what you mean, I constantly have an idea in my head of what I'm gonna wear then in reality it just doesnt work, cue lots of faffing to change! That outfit works tho, love the dress, I nearly bought a similar (same?) one in Matalan last year :)

  4. You always look lovely though <3

  5. Oh I know that frumpy feeling well! I'm trying to be organised and plan clothes the night before to avoid throwing on the first clean thing I find!

    I like that outfit though - I think the way the cardi comes in at the button is flattering!

  6. Everyone has a frumpy day, you look lovely thoguh. Really like the mix of stripes and florals!
