I threw this outfit on the other day to go out and buy some more decaf green tea. Naively I had assumed that green tea was caffeine-free because, well, it's all herbal-y and healthy and all that jazz and it says absolutely nowhere on the packet that it contains caffeine...but to my dismay I realised it did and I had been unknowingly filling myself with ungodly amounts of caffeine every single day. Not that I have anything against caffeine but I may as well have been drinking coffee all day or something. As you can see I have some really interesting struggles in my daily life (not).
I have essentially been living in these dungarees for the past week because they are absolutely perfect for exams...mainly due to the whole no-waistband situation. There is nothing as freeing and comfortable as wearing something without a waistband, and so I was in my element for the whole day. They're also so easy to wear because all you need do is find some form of top and tad-da, you have your outfit. The perfect solution to those lazy day blues when you just don't feel like putting a full outfit together.
I got these dungarees from Beyond Retro (they have so many. And sometimes cute novelty ones too) and wore them with my current favourite shirt which I picked up from the Vintage Car Boot sale I went to on the Southbank. I love the cute lace detail on the collar and sleeve cuffs, as it looks sweet under jumpers as well as on it's own like this. I also wore socks from Topshop, glasses from the Car Boot sale (which say Gucci on the arm but I have yet to find out if they actually are or not) a bag that belonged to my mum and my bowling shoes from Clothes Show Live in Birmingham. I never thought they were that unusual when I bought them, but for some reason they seem to confuse / offend the entire human population. Numerous occasions have led me to explain that yes, they are bowling shoes, and no, I did not steal them from the Hollywood Bowl. Raised eyebrows and a few confused stares have become normal when I wear them, though I'm not sure why because I mean they're hardly fluorescent pink or something. I will never understand normal people.
In other news, you may have noticed my blog has had a (complete) makeover. I haven't been happy with it for a while now, and thought I may as well try and make it look a little more 'finished'. There's still lots to be done but for now I'm quite happy with it...I love having more of a logo instead of my blog title just written in a regular font. I have Elevator Musik on Etsy to thank for the redesign, and highly recommend her themes as getting this one sorted was quick and easy (and the instructions were so helpful as I'm not known for being the best at HTML).
As you know voting is still open for Company Magazine's style blogger awards. I really appreciate you all for voting and helping me get shortlisted, and would be really grateful if you had a moment to vote again (this time to win) in the Best Teen Blog (Under 18) category (it's about the 8th page, you have to vote for a blog in each of the other categories as well and then submit them all). Thank you so much and sorry for being annoying and reminding you again!
Hope you have a good weekend!
