i throw my hands up in the air sometimes..

oh it feels like ages since i last wrote a post - i've been house-sitting for my parents for the last wk and my phone doesnt' work there at all, so i am very behind on blog-reading, twitter etc, but in a way it has been quite refreshing.. i packed a few pairs of shoes whilst away and a bit of a capsule wardrobe - i only brought three pairs of heels -

and have been making outfits work around them..i chose these as they are all pairs i love but which i haven't worn enough, so i thought i'd get some more wear from them! as i have a few outfits to post from the last few days i will add both of the ones i paired with my yellow rocko heels -

the first outfit was inspired by a dress i forgot i had until i saw it on rai's blog last week and remembered it, i dug it out and was pleased that i still like it lots - also the cardigan i mentioned from my 'one year on' post, which i had truthfully packed before mentioning it in the post - i have teamed this with a few of the outfits, as although it's patterned i think the pale grey colour of it means it lends itself to pattern-clashing a lot more readily than most of my patterned knits..

i was a little cautious about pairing this pale lemon dress with the bright shoes but i think they work pretty well together..

and then today's outfit - i do rather love this knitted vest from h&m although sometimes it makes me a little wary as i'm not all that sure about it's bulk-enhancing ability, it's not very forgiving to all of the food i've been eating this week (a lot more than usual, esp when dragged out for sunday lunch by the grandparents to check we were eating properly!)

another of the get cutie skirts which i haven't worn for ages - i love the sci-fi print of this one, and the 'bow' skirt cut is much better shaped in my opinion than their a-line skirt shape!

hope everyone else has enojoyed a lovely weekend, mine has been fairly uneventful - long dog walks, baking, trying to figure out little sis' maths homework, swimming and beating my personal best time for 100 lengths :)
