Tuesday 6/10/09



Ever have a day when you get it completely wrong? Well today is definitely one of those for me. There's pretty much nothing I like about this outfit. The top is totally unflattering and makes me look like I have scary man arms (one of the side effects of carrying very heavy children about is very muscular arms!), it also needs a necklace or scarf or something to break up the block of colour. I have finally fallen out of love with this skirt. It is too big around the waist now and looks terrible all bunched up. The socks and boots make my legs look like tree trunks by cutting them in half at less than flattering points. I have yet to wear these boots and be really happy with the outcome. I think it may be time to say goodbye to them. I do still like these tights though. Ah well - hope I do better next time, this outfit will never ever be repeated!

Top, skirt, tights, socks - Primark
Boots - Priceless

The colours look great on you though.....
Can you tell I'm a glass half full type of person ;)

But seriously that chocolate brown looks great with your colouring and hair so not all wrong :) The tights are great!

Sorry the first time I'm commenting is on an outfit you're unhappy with, but you do always look great, you give me ideas of what to do with my stuff.

I agree - the brown looks good. I think you need a lower neckline - your top half is just like mine and I always wear v necks and wrap fronts.

My clothes are so dull :( I don't even have much variety of tights. Is it me? lol:) Right that's it I'm out shopping for accesories this weekend :)) How many tights does anyone have??? I'm tired of limiting myself by making do with what I have.

I like the colours too. I love brown now which is funny because for the first 26 years of my life I refused to even entertain the thought of wearing brown.

Rachel - I have tonnes of tights but I go through them at quite a speed. I probably have about 10 pairs at the moment without holes! They are a great way to add interest and create new outfits from stuff you already have.

I certainly don't think you've got manly arms lol, but I do think you'd benefit from having something with a v or lower neck :-)

I think you're legs would have been just dandy without the socks, but you're right, they do cut your legs up a bit ;-)

Love today's pink mac :-)
