I was just about to put up another bunch of pictures of me wearing denim, when I realised 3/4 of my last outfit posts had featured it in one way or another, not to mention the entire post on high-waisted jeans
, so let’s look at something that’s not blue for once instead (who am I, Picasso?!)…
Regular readers have probably gathered by now that I put my outfit posts up entirely out of order. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I never change my hair, or it’d be seriously confusing. So, these photos are from a couple of weeks ago – that’s pretty recent for me! And they are evidence of something I never thought would happen: after an incredibly cold and rainy start to autumn, the weather then became really quite nice. It was like the summer we never had – well, when you count 18 degrees as summer weather, which in this country, believe me we do. I made the most of it by going out – gasp – without a coat and – gasp – not wearing tights sometimes! Note this is all in past tense as it’s back to miserable form and as I write this I’ve got my 60 deniers on.
Anyway, my mood immediately improves if it’s nice outside, which is frankly a real shame for everyone who has to put up with me in real life as most of the time it isn’t. I think it also shows in the kind of outfits I put together too. I’m not one for pink usually, so if I’m suddenly accessorising with it you know I’m full of the joys of spring/sunny autumn. I had originally pigeon-holed the weekend these photos are from as a chance to take some autumn-type photos, but it didn’t work out that way that sunny Sunday, on my way to have lunch at a lovely little pub. I was even joined by a bee in one of the photos (it’s not going to take a genius to work out which – although what would have been really funny is the shot of me then actually running from it).
By the way, I’m not enjoying my hair in these photos. I tried something new and from some angles (i.e. straight-on when I looked in the mirror!) it looked great – from others it looks like I’d stuck a big hair donut on my head. Which essentially I had… I like the outfit though so I’ve still put the photos up, donut-head an’ all.

And yes, this is basically just my usual black and white + red, but + pink instead this time. But I got away with it, right?! Actually now that I think about it, my next outfit post was going to feature a similar colour scheme again… Clearly straight out of my blue period and into my monochrome + colour pop one 😉
