I get the feeling that most people think that I look a lot younger than I actually am. And I love it. But sometimes I wonder just how young people actually think I am! Because I’m very aware that my writing, the mishaps in the kitchen, how I dress, or my current short haircut (I always spare you my serious and professional side) can give the impression I’m about 10! That’s why I decided to dress a little more grown up today. Makes a change from my usual faded jeans and ketchup-stained sweater. I’m a messy eater, what can I say.
I bought this top from Coast about a month ago but never wore it so it’s time to whip it out. Check out their website for more amazing clothes! Online shopping is one of my many weaknesses and will be the end of me. But they have some of the most drop-dead-gorgeous gowns and dresses how can a girl resist!
Black has a way of making you look more mature doesn’t it? It needed a belt, otherwise it would just look like something’s missing. This top won’t travel well in a suitcase because the outer layer gets crinkled very easily. And it’s a nightmare to iron! It’s so delicate that you want to steam-iron it. Definitely don’t want to be chucking this in the washing machine. I usually don’t like high-maintenance clothes like this (I have an aversion to doing extra laundry) but it’s time my wardrobe owned something decent.
And let me just give you a close up of that necklace.
Pretty, no? Small and dainty and pretty much goes with anything.
Now let me tell you a little secret. I love to shop in the men’s department too. And no, not because I like to check out the cute-looking guys shopping for clothes (I know that’s what you’re thinking). If anything I trip and fall and embarass myself. I like to buy men’s t-shirts for lounging about at home. Whew, got that off my chest. Before you open fire at me, you have to know that they’re so huge and comfortable! But I did find a nice scarf from Topman that was so surprisingly soft made with a cashmere-like material that I had to buy it. It was warm and cosy too. Think it fits ok?
I love how it drapes at the back.
The hair had to be put up today. It was such a mess and curled in all directions that I looked like a poofball. Even poodles would look better than I did. I should do this more because it only took 9 bobby pins and 5 minutes.
And a lot of pulling and tugging of hair.
Accessories have a way of spicing up your outfit. Earrings are from Evita Peroni. It’s made of a unique stone material. Thought I should mention that. In case you thought I mistreated my earrings and scratched it up beyond recognition.
I daresay I look a lot more my age. I’ll leave you to guess how old I actually am because a woman’s age is always her secret. Now I’m going to put some good food in me because my tummy is growling in protest at the lack of nutritious sustenance. It probably wasn’t such a good idea living on a diet of milk and cornflakes for the past week (which I additionally sustained with chocolate bars and Nutella)!
It’s a terrible diet, and I definitely don’t advocate it.
Also, I just want to say a BIG thank you to those who have connected with me on Facebook. I love you all. And I always love to keep in touch. Plus I have to admit, I haven’t a clue how Google Friend Connect works!
Have a great day!
