Its kinda funny the way we’re wearing anchors on our shirts

So the other day I saw this shirt in H&M and you know the way that sometimes you see an item of clothing and you can just know how you would wear it? Well that happened to me, and even though my cheap-skate tendencies were reluctant at the fact it was £20, I really wanted this shirt.

To be fair, sort of smart-casual shirts are something that is missing from my wardrobe so really it was a smart buy. This outfit is vaguely based off something Clara Oswald wore in Doctor Who. Whoever styles the characters in the last 5 or so years of Doctor Who has amazing taste and I always get style envy while watching the show. Doctor Who may have had some dodgy storylines recently but at least it is pretty to look at!

The exposure is a bit off in these pictures as I got someone to take them for me, but didn’t think to put it back on a pre-programed mode. I’ll need to train them up on all the dials.

Basing my outfits of sci-fi characters; I’m such a nerd…

Shirt from H&M for £20
Necklace from Primark for £1.50, it has become a bit of a staple for me
Coat from New Look

Today I'm listening:

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
