Dressed in the worst combination for the awkward humid weather we had in England today. It's been hovering between 24°C and 27°C all day, and I've been hibernating indoors with the air-con on instead of embracing the warmth. Had to step out to get the food shopping (my life is a rollercoaster of excitement, I know) and I always get cold in there so the jumper seemed like a good idea before I left.


(Jumper, Miss Selfridge - originally oversized but it shrank in the wash!;
Playsuit, Topshop;
Loafers, Primark;
Necklace, Bla Bla Bla.)

I always end up returning to this "safe outfit". It seemed like the next best option to staying in my pyjamas all day! I bought this heart print playsuit over a year ago now, but still adore it and wear it pretty much weekly, unless my sister has decided to wear it. The back features the sweetest drop-back and gold button detailing, I must remember to photograph that for the blog soon. One day, I'll work out how to wear this playsuit differently, instead of just pulling something slouchy and grey on top... Also popped on my owl necklace to break up that block of wool and cotton mix, she is affectionately named Pigwidgeon.

Yesterday I was declared magical, practically by JK Rowling herself! After two sleepless nights, I finally managed to follow the owl, find the magical quill and register for early access to Pottermore. So exciting! Did anyone else manage to get signed up? To celebrate, and escape the humidity in our house last night, my sister and I went for a walk up at the lakes in our town. Sounds pretty random, but we have a lake and valley park right in the middle of our humble hometown! Snaps as expected, including a magical quill cloud!


I'm at work tomorrow as per usual, and it promises to be a long, uneventful shift. Going to spend my night reading a novel I started over the weekend (Summer at Willow Lake, by Susan Wiggs - so long, cliched and slow, not sure if I'd recommend it!), sipping my Starbucks Seattle Latte, flicking through Look mag to stalk Sara, Lily and Amelia, and sorting out a few other bits! My life clearly has direction at the moment...

PS. Flying ants are the bane of my life.
PPS. I want Oh Lola! perfume, because Marc Jacobs is my hero.

    It's so humid at the moment, apparently it'll be stormy tomorrow though, which should cool it down...

  13. I haven't seen any flying ants yet! We used to get them all the time in Oxford.
    Your playsuit is lovely, I've really wanted a
    heart print one for ages, or a skirt. Never been able to find one though.

    It was really humid today here too, I'm sick as well so it doesn't help at all - I'm sat at Liam's with the fan right in my face!

  19. Lovely outfit! I hate dressing for this weather too, whatever you put on isn't right as the weather keeps changing! So annoying.

    Hooray on being declared magical! I missed the first two days because I woke up late but this morning I was checking my phone every 5 minutes to see if the website was updating or not! Luckily I got in! I can't wait to see the website!

  21. Loving the outfit, the playsuit is so cute! And I loooove playsuits with jumpers popped over. Or anything with slouchy jumpers popped over, for that matter:) I managed to get into Pottermore, too and I´m super excited. Can´t wait for it to start properly x

  24. Teehee magical quill cloud! :)
    I love outfits that you can wear constantly; week after week without ever getting tired of! That playsuit is a good deal.

  25. Yikes a jumper in that heat?!?! You are a crazy person. I was stuck at work in a full black uniform and we have no aircon and no windows!!! I was literally sweating on the spot and all the customers were complaining. Nightmare. /endrant Anyway gorgeous pictures misses, the lake looks amazing!

  26. Pffft, who needs direction in life? Looks to me like you're enjoying yourself! I really love the outfit. I want a playsuit that's simple like that! All of mine are printed and quite annoying to match, actually. Anyway, have a great night!

  27. Oh and I forgot to say two things! One, I really want to try out Oh Lola! as well! And secondly, I love that in the first picture, that house in the background seems to have eyebrows above the windows!

  28. I love those shorts + necklace, and I need those shoes!!

  29. You're a brave one for facing yesterday's heat in a jumper. I had a vest top, flip flops and 3/4 length leggings on at work and I was boiling!
    Still looks great though, your loafers are totally cute.

    I'm magical too! Can't wait to start Hogwarts/Pottermore with you ^_^ xoxo

  30. I love adding a statement piece of jewelry to a basic outfit - even though your romper is playful and printed! Super cute! Let us know how you like Pottermore!

  31. Cute outfit! I agree, supermarkets are always so cold inside... especially near the fruits/vegetables, haha. The jumper is totally justified.

    I'm so jealous of your access to Pottermore already! To be fair, I haven't really been TRYING as such. I only visit the site in the afternoon and, of course, all the places are taken by then. Perhaps I'll stay up tonight to try and get my registration!
