i have had such a crazy morning. i have to go and house/dog/sister-sit at my parents' whilst they are away on holiday, and so had to try and pack a week of outfits..which was not proving easy considering today's final outfit was about the sizth i tried on this morning. i haven't been feeling very decisive so have ended up with a pile of clothes which don't go together i'm sure, like i'm wondering if this doesn't..

i settled on this river island floral dress and the cropped bird print blazer from h&m which i had intended would pick out the blue in the floral print, but i'm not too sure about it ;together..too much clashing? or does it work ok?

i have a "half" day of work today and then off to prepare tea / set up my sewing machine at my new temporary abode, and then off to a camp planning meeting for a proposed massive scout / guide camp summer 2012, which could be quite exciting..

  4. My mother drummed various style quirks into me, "don't mix patterns" "don't put blue and black together" "don't wear heels with jeans", etc.

    In true teenage rebellion style I still ignore all of them. I think it looks good together. Kind of quirky but still stylish.

  9. I clicked over and thought 'I recognise that dress'. It's the River Island dress that looked shit on me (and incidentally looks gorgeous on you!) that I bought with my ill fated ASOS Groupon voucher. Enjoy the temp home...
