ThrowBack Thursday

Realised I wrote this MONTHS ago and forgot to hit 'publish' on it! Original post below. In hindsight, I do regret it getting colder so I can't wear little dresses any more, I slightly miss my big voluminous hair and I definitely need to get the skirt tailored...

Oh hello Carven SS14 you cute little thing. Monochrome, gingham AND floral you say? 
I should probably get this tailored as it's clearly cut for little straight up and down things, and sure I should probably wear A-line things more, and blah blah. But fashion isn't about listening to the wise words of stylists and parents and friends who are out to tell you what looks good. If you like something enough, you find a way to make it work. Because it's somehow about more than just you. It's about you finding the thing that perfectly expresses how you see your style. 
And it fits. AND it has pockets!

Jumpin' Jumpin'

Check out the moody lighting effects! I'm no pro photographer (the reason I've not posted in a month is that my trusty camera actually fell off the ledge it normally rests on while taking these, rendering it useless) so this is about the best it gets. But it's suitably moody as I'm in the mood for autumn! The mornings are colder (especially on a bicycle at 7.30am) and the days are shorter. It's been a wonderful summer but I'm ready for a new season and a change. 
A change as I'll be moving house in a few weeks, so these'll be the last few snaps with this snazzy fence as a backdrop! Three years in my place and I'll miss it a lot. But it's time to go. 
PS This jumpsuit...have never been particularly sure about jumpsuits for ladies with behinds that aren't Beyonce, but this one (and a blue-grey version I also got) is just the right mix of comfy, simple, sophisticated and perfect for inbetween seasons that are the perfect mix of bright days and cooler nights.
