old faithful

We all get those days where you wake up with no inspiration for what you want to wear that day; and I’m betting that like me, you have a couple of outfits on standby; the old faithfuls that you know just work.

This floral dress is one of mine. It costs £16 from Matalan back in the spring and on a cost per wear basis I reckon it’s in the minus figures now.
Worn with New Look tights and I Love Shoes boots c/o Sarenza*

And magically, it’s Friday. This feels like it has been the fastest week ever! Enjoy it folks…what have you got planned for the weekend? I’m off learning to cook tomorrow (blog post to follow on that adventure!)

  1. I love your dress, I too have so many little dresses which are in the minus figures on a cost to wear basis. Some are practically my uniform and cost barely a thing!

    It feels great when you’re happy in a dress!


  2. Great dress, I love those kind of dresses that you can just throw on & feel good to go. The boots are fab too, Sarenza keeps tempting me with all their boots – will pay day ever get here? xxx

  3. very lovely boots!


  4. It is a beautiful dress, no wonder you love it! I wish I owned more dresses 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend! xxx

  12. Learning to cook? As in an actual lesson somewhere for something specific or just trial & error sessions in your kitchen? I’m intrigued.

    I also have my staple ‘go to’s’ when I feel rubbish or am lacking in outfit inspiration. A dress for instance I have that I wear A LOT or certain tops. xxx Happy Friday beauty xxx

  20. I love your dress and I totally agree with what you just wrote. I have a few don’t know what to wear outfits that I often go to.

  21. We’re off to the cinema I think at some point if the snow doesn’t stop us to see Red Tails [about African Americans in the airforce fighting in WWII]. Then having a typically lazy Sunday.

  22. Thank the lord for the goto outfits eh! Trouble is mine tend to involve jeans, which can be slightly boring.

    Good luck with the cooking, sounds like a real adventure. Look forward to hearing all about it.
