Don't threaten me with a good time..

Dress: Cath Kidston // Cardigan: Vintage
I'm trying so hard to fight this exhaustion, lately. I know I've mentioned before that I'm struggling to get my iron levels up to a point where I can actually retain them - I was turned away from blood donation, yet again, which is always a good indicator that they're not great, but this is despite three ferrous sulphate tablets per day. Such a pain. 

I've been trying hard to keep on track with things; life has been so busy lately that I seem to live from one to-do list to the next, but sometimes I'm just finding that I'm too tired and something has to slide. Hopefully I'll feel better soon. If only it were socially acceptable just to curl up and sleep for a week. Instead I'm mainlining coffee to keep me ticking over.

Anyhow, today's outfit as inspired by Kezzie's Instagram post - I'd sort of forgotten about this dress until I saw that, and went with this ladybird cardigan to pick out the green in the train print. I've been trying to make an effort to remember to wear more jewellery, hence the necklace.

  1. Yay train dress!!!!! Love it with the green cardie!!! I like the bright red bag as an accompaniment too! Ha, to have inspired Char-I am flattered and honoured!
    Sorry about the iron levels. I've been struggling for energy too this week, just need a dose of pure sleep!!!x

    1. Thanks for the inspiration, haha!
      I think sleep will help me as well. I'm hoping for a fairly relaxed weekend. I have so much tidying up to do, need to sew and practice cakes for my friend's birthday next weekend.

  2. Love the dress and that bag is fabulous. Have you enquired about the infusions/has your GP suggested it might come to that? I really feel for you. I found the pills a pain too and they work so slightly and slowly, you still feel crappy.

    1. Yeah, it was a case of trying the tablets for a few months and the next solution would be infusions. I'm going to go back and ask for them, I think. I've been reluctant, but this is getting ridiculous. I get home with heaps to do and then just have no energy for anything.
