almost there

So close to the weekend now, who’s excited?
What are your plans for Halloween? I’m working for 3 hours in the morning, then off to a friend’s house in the evening for a catch up/girly sleepover. Not very spooky, but some much needed time spent with good friends.

Thank you to everyone who has wished me well this week and left lovely comments. I really and truly appreciate it, and wanted you to know you’ve helped, and this week *did* get better.

This is what I wore yesterday for a dentist appointment and coffee with Mum
I was never much a fan of denim shorts with tights, but I’m now a convert



And today I put together two “difficult” pieces from my wardrobe; things I never normally think to wear because there are some what awkward to pair up with other items.



Well that’s that.
I have a lipbalm review coming up soon, and hopefully some photos from tomorrow night.

Ooh, UK readers, who else managed to nab a Giles Deacon scarf via the Caramel Bunny?

  22. LOVE shorts + tights. You wear it well.

  23. I adore that colorful skirt in the second photo and the lovely shirt you paired it with. Have a great weekend!

  24. Those outfits are so darn awesome. I like how you paired the polka dots and the floral. It usually ends up like some pattern overload, but it’s so good on you! Simplicity is best.

  25. Loove it, I don’t adore the jean shorts myself during winter, I prefer different fabrics but I like using them till the summer comes again! 🙂
    And the combination with the jacket is great!

  26. honey the blazer is perfect on you !!!!
    so sad that at greece we don’t celebrate halloween 🙁 very excited that the weekend is here!!!!

  27. You pull off both these looks perfectly! I especially love the 2nd one, because I adore flowy feminine pieces.

    have fun at the sleepover!

    I love both your outfits, especially the first one! I think a friend or two is coming over and we will hand out candy and watch scary movies.

  41. I’m glad you feel better:)I love your first look! Sweetie your so tiny!!!! how do you do it???

  42. MJ

    I love the T-shirt with the first outfit – where’s it from?

  43. Glad to hear you’re feeling better! Lovely oufits, esp. the denim shorts. Have fun tonight!

  44. i’ve always wanted to attempt the shorts/tights look, but i’m always intimidated haha :p i think it gives a really awesome vibe to an outfit

  45. Ignore the lame hate commenter at the top, they are obviously unable to articulate themselves, and justify their comments, so their not worth listening to.
    I have also rediscover shorts and tights, by rip rip ripping and addding all these tee shirts/alpen layers together! I’ts so cool when you see things differently.
    Love the drape of the black sation top too, it reminds me of this really cool top this contestant made on Project Runway!
    Have a lovely Halloween,

  46. Very cute looks…. Have lots of fun with the girlies 🙂

    Happy Halloween!

  47. totally in love with that second outfit girlie!! you have a great sense of fashion.

  48. Hey, sorry for the late reply! Yeah she’s looking miles better. I hope she doesn’t mess it all up again, she needs to take care of herself. love your dotty top! I need to get a handle on my style…:/Or lack thereof! xxx

  49. Hi! I just found your blog and its beautiful! I lov your outfits and today i esspecially love the shorts and tights…so awesome!

  50. You look like an off-duty model. Denim over black tights, you could channel a lily donaldson!

  51. love the blazer! i dont know why i find it humorous that you wore that to a dentist appointment. its not even funny, i dont know why its funny, im sorry, im really strange sometimes. please dont think im weird
    hope you have fun and all

  52. Aw, a sleepover sounds so fun! I haven’t had one in so long! Oh, wait, well actually I’ve been traveling and staying in hostels, for the last two months, which means dorm rooms, with lots of other people, so maybe kind of like a sleepover? Just not very girly, cause I’ve mainly had male roommates. 😛

    Anyway, love jean shorts! I used to hate jeans completely (I was a weird kid, haha), but now I love jeans and jean cut-offs too!

    Hope you are well, dear! <3


  53. Love the boyfriend blazer. It just perfects the outfit.

    So lovely 🙂

  54. I love how you styled those shorts. I’m not typically a fan of denim shorts but you made them look adorable!

  55. Love the blazer in the first outfit, and the top in second:)

    i think that you, simply, are a fan of tights…i can’t stop admiring your tights…

  57. I adore your shorts look! I’d 100% wear that.

  58. Adore that first outfit, I love your breton top, they seem to be all over the highstreet at the moment, but yours is the best I’ve seen!

    I managed to win a Giles Deacon scarf from the Caramel Bunny! I can’t wait for it to arrive, although after I’d spent several hours staring at my computer trying to get to the front of the queue I did sit back and think ‘all this for a scarf that will be on sale in John Lewis for £15?!’ Oh well, I’m super excited for it to arrive!

  59. Hiya hun, i’ve tagged you on my blog.

    Can’t seem to follow your blog for some reason, so i’m missing all your post updates.
