go green

I’m feeling completely un-inspired with outfits at the moment, I’m in another of my “look in the wardrobe and suddenly hate it all” phases. I’m blaming the weather, the time of year and the fact I’m not dressing for work right now and I’ve got so used to doing that.

Still, it’s not like this outfit truly saw the light of day yesterday; bar a mercy dash to Tesco inbetween downpours.
Dress; New York Laundry (so old now), Tights; (the now defunct) Ethel Austin, Boots; New Look

Today and tomorrow I actually have vague plans, so maybe inspiration will strike…looking out of the window, it probably won’t! I’ll just do what I need to then curl up this afternoon with my iPod touch that I caved and ordered and a vast mug of tea.

Stuck in a rut too? How do you get out of it?

    I love that outfit, so bright and fun and perfectly your style. x

  2. You’re making me want to have amazing bright and bold coloured hair. Looks amaze, so vibrant xx

  3. Well your outfit truly does brighten up yet another horrid day!

    We all have those wardrobe moments so I wouldn’t worry too much it will pass. When mine is that bad a few friends and I will swop a few items which gives it a little boost at no cost.

  6. Gorgeous bright tights, unfortunately i don’t have the legs to pull that off but you look amazing.

  7. love the whole look, so bright and cute. I feel stuck in a style rut at least once a day. I kind of just try random combinations ’til something takes my interest x

    Weather is dreary here too, I think I’ll curl up with tea as well πŸ™‚

  9. Life & clothing ruts are dire. I feeling slightly glad that you have them too, as am so in awe of your style that if makes me feel more normal that I have wardrobe ‘I hate you’ periods.
    For me, sometimes it is just because I haven’t got a new something for a while. Or because weirdly my go to favourites suddenly don’t feel so favourable.
    Maybe my dear when you return to work the boost you need will kick in?! xxx Love you

  10. http://www.girlnextdoorfashion.net/2012/01/top-tips-for-uninspired-days.html Charlotte had some great tips for ruts. I’m in one myself actually. Really badly. I’m also eating the Smarties you sent me at 6am my time….

    I absolutely love the dress-tights combo. Its so nice that you got dressed and didn’t really do much. That’s so much fun (to me at least)

  14. Love your outfit! I gave away half the contents of my wardrobe yesterday so looking forward to the new Spring colours:)

  15. You always have the best tights! And I love these boots, I keep trying them on, but I find them so high (yes I’m a wimp!) However you’re wearing them too well!x

  18. Cute outfit – i’m stuck in a clothing rut too – I didn’t really have the space to move a lot of clothes and I just seem to be living in the same ones. Plus I don’t have a bank card so I can’t go wild [yet]! hehe

  20. The print on that dress is so pretty πŸ™‚

  21. i’m feeling a bit the same when i look at my wardrobe.. this swimming and weight loss lark is great and all, but i don’t think i was prepared for how dramatic an effect it was going to have on how my clothes fit, or rather, don’t fit :/

    Also I wish I had your legs!

  28. I love the pattern and colours on that dress, it is beautiful. When I am stuck in a rut I try and set myself a challenge like wearing clothes in my wardrobe that I haven’t worn for ages or making an evening piece work for daytime.
