This was my outfit from last Sunday. A casual breakfast on a chilly Sunday morning calls for layering up and accessorising with my new favourite quirky handbag. I wasted no time at all in ordering this camera shaped bag from Accessorize after placing it in last week's wishlist post. I picked it up on Saturday and although it's a little smaller than I'd imagined, I love it.

I've had quite a lot of wear from this dress, which I had at Christmas, but every time I seem to prefer to wear it layered underneath a jumper, because of how the waistband sits on me. I'm not sure how flattering this squirrel print jumper is, but I was nice and cosy in it, which I suppose was the main thing.

Isn't it odd how some things just seem to work better when worn in a certain way, and how you can fall into a "comfort zone" with them, isn't it. Like how I'd try only to wear my shortest dresses with black tights and flat shoes, for fear of being too self-conscious about showing too much leg. Or how I seem only to wear my coloured tights for casual outfits, these days. I guess it's funny how your perception of what is acceptable to you can change, isn't it?

    1. Thanks, I love mixing prints but seem to keep the coloured tights for the off-duty weekend looks.

    1. Thanks, it's quite old now and I've been close to getting rid of it in the past, but I'm often glad when I haven't got rid of something!
