dont even know

shorts: H&M (playsuit)
top: H&M
cardigan: ivors
rings: H&M + freedom

As soon as got home today I decided to do a outfit post, Its a bit bland, Sometimes I put off posting what I would deem "boring" outfits. But I really fancied doing something blog related today! So there we go, Burgundy cardigan + Leopard playsuit combo! I though the playsuit would be a bit in your face for a whole "dressing down"outfit. I'm staying in with a chinese meal and the Xfactor tonight, So put a top over it. In my head I was imaging this outfit with a nice cropped tshirt so it sits on the waist band more, but borrowed this oversized top from my Mum and thought it was acceptable! I really think leopard needs to be paired down this season with greens, burgundy and brown tones. Definitely something I want to explore a bit this A/W, Other trends I really want to get into for A/W is Shearling Jackets, biker boots as well as chunky knits!

I think probably due to my lack of money I haven't been buying much recently which has made me not really feel the whole fashion thing. Not that I have to have new things all the time to dress interestingly. Clothes have taken as backseat over the last week though, Seeing as I have to wear a uniform during the day, Well I have to wear New Look Concessions stuff, I just wear the same thing everyday to work, then change into something basic when I'm home. Despite the fact I have a double wardrobe full of clothes, I always find it hard to find something to wear. I presume this is a common girl problem though! Oh well 10 days till payday! YAY! I've got a full basket on the Topshop website that I'm going to get when I get paid, and I've spied a load of things in New Look I want too! Being paid monthly is going to so different for me!

I just want to say a big thanks to everyone's whos commented or emailed me over the past few days. You are all to sweet! You've made me feel so much more positive! and RE: The Formspring issue, I've decided to make it so only people who are logged into formspring can ask me questions, Hopefully it will bring an end to the trolling and mean the people who want help can still get it quickly and easily! I may change it back if things calm down a bit!

  2. Very cute leopard print playsuit and I like how you've toned it down with the t-shirt and cardi to reduce potential tackiness (head-to-toe leopard print can be pretty risky on this front). But my favourite part of this look is definitely the gorgeous blue statement ring. Little touches like that can make an otherwise unremarkable outfit SO much more interesting. X

  3. It's a cute outfit, I can just imagine wearing it all cosy on the sofa watching tv (xfactorrrr!). Looking forward to buying little bits of leopard print stuff like a scarf and maybe some shoes ready for A/W. We complain about not having hot weather but secretly love our bitterly cold A/W haha! Stupid really.
    Good decision about the Formspring thing as well, there were some ridiculous anon questions on there. Oh well, hopefully sorted now anyways.

  8. hey toots - you really suit those kind of autumnal colours, totally makes your skintone glow (does that sound funny, ummm ... in my head it makes sense!) ;)

    I picked up a pair of lovelabel cheap as chips biker boots from very if you fancy a peep - they were only £35 - cannot wait to kick them on with some ridiculously thick opaques, scruffy shorts and flannel layers. nom! roll on autumn/winter :)

  15. I'm looooving the deep wine colours at the moment. So many lovely cardigans and tights.
    As for leopard print, I love it, but I hate wearing it just in case it looks tacky. But you pull it off so well, think I might give it a go.

    Hope you're well.

  20. I know what you mean about the formspring, sadly not many people ask questions anymore.

  21. I don't think you could have handled the formspring situation better! That will DEFINITELY eliminate the negativity people bring to your blog because it's significantly easier to hide behind the face of "Anonymous." This outfit is chic. I definitely agree about toning down the animal prints!

  22. Love the outift!
    I think I am the only girl left on this easrth not to own a playsuit, but I feel that I look like a little egg on legs!

    Love you blog!
