So, this is my first Outfit post in a while, I've been feeling a little lack lustre recently - inspiration has escaped me. Winter always makes me feel this way, and with a huge degree work load, and an extra day at work it means I don't get much chance for the things I love. I miss walks and regular outdoors exercise, I end up feeling all blurgh and that hibernation must be the answer. Well, I'm really hoping to change that in the next couple of weeks and make some time for the things I want to do rather than the things I have to do.
Anyway moving on...I have a new hair cut which I'm not convinced by, I think it's a little too short, and for the first time ever I think I'm getting bored of blond, perhaps time for a change? On to the outfit...I'm terrible at casual outfits. I find it much easier to wear a fancy dress or skirt then to wear flats and jeans - working in an office was my ultimate dream clothing wise, you never needed an excuse to dress up; but here's my attempt at a casual outfit. I picked this scarf up in a charity shop a couple of weeks ago for 50p, I haven't really taken it off since, it goes with everything, leather jackets, my duffle coat, cardigans...everything. I'm enjoying the contrast of the check against the stripe, it makes me think of 'Submarine', which is never a bad thing.
