on sleepless roads the sleepless go..

apologies for my hair in these photos, that is what happens when i go to sleep on it without drying it first :S
so another pair of new shoes (by which i mean a pair which have lived in their box on top of one of the wardrobes for at least a year and been neglected, until now)..i have no idea what number pair these are..i have 11 days off from friday, and plan on making a list of things to do if i can't sort out a few days away, so maybe one of the things on the list should be "count shoes - make a shoe inventory"..but i think that would take a long time..
anyway - the shoes are from office, and were a gift from my sister for my birthday last year..i love nautical stripes, and the kitschy hearts on the fronts make me smile..i was inspired to dig these out after seeing a picture on llara's blog a little while ago, which made me think i had a pair which i didn't think i had ever worn! they are really nice and comfy, and a lovely height!
as for the dress, i went to matalan on my way home the other day and discovered that they had a 20% off offer on all dresses and jumpsuits, and managed to whittle down the armful of beautiful be beau dresses to just two..this is the first of them, and i do rather like it - i am such a big fan of stripes and florals together, and i loved the pretty coral-red tones in the print..i think it's a lovely fit, and at £20 in the offer, it was a total bargain! did anyone else take advantage of the 20% off event at matalan? i think they are already coming up with some lovely pieces this season, i had seen soeme things i liked on the website and was really pleasantly suprised to see so many of them in my local store, as it's a relatively small one..

in other news, i am pleased that i managed to motivate myself enough to go for a run last night, although i didn't feel well at all by the end of it..i'm not very happy with the way my fitness / weightloss is going, i seemed to get off to a good start and then it seems to have slowed down again, but still..i'm just scared of putting all the weight i had managed to lose back on again :( not that it was a huge amount, but a start nonetheless..

also, i am currently without a car, i am having major issues with the garage who are being stupid about the warranty and what it does / does not cover in terms of a manufacturer's fault on the windscreen..but after a lot of time reading t+c's and putting together my complaint documentation, it looks as though it will be fixed tomorrow..yay! i do feel strangeley lost without it..

  2. Ah my car is the bane of my life but its so handy! Love this colourful outfit, Matalan have got so much better in past few years, altho theres one right behind my work that I somehow always forget about (prob cause I always buy stuff when I go in so try to steer clear!) :)

  11. I love how you manage to wear items you've just bought so quickly!! I tend to buy them then they sit in the bag for a few weeks before I remember about them (by which time they're crushed of course)! Lovely outfit : )

  12. MOG, I love those shoes so much!!!

    The dress looks fab on as well. I did think about trying it on whilst I was there the other day but the lure of the cherries was too strong.
