Realitee petrol blue zebra vest; Zara black skirt; Topshop 'Merlot' mini stud slippers; Ever Ours collar necklace; Mulberry peace friendship bracelet.
I think I can justify using 'spent the weekend being too hot, bothered, busy and partly-undressed' as an excuse for a blog-less weekend, right? It was so nice to be greeted with an Indian summer as I left the office on Friday evening, and I ended up just making the most of my weekend away from my laptop for once. That, paired with my nearly-had-it laptop and some awful Internet, has meant I'm back with some new inspiration and creativity. Cough cough. Get ready for a long post...

I wore this to work yesterday, knowing that I'd be in an office for the majority of my day, and rushing on and off trains and tubes for the other part. The vest is something I bought years ago from the Realitee concession at Topshop. I'm not sure if they even exist anymore, but I know I still love it. The muted petrol blue colour is one of my favourites ever, and paired with copper studs, I refuse to let it leave my wardrobe. (Just like all of my other 'favourites' that are being held hostage.) Wore it untucked over my Zara skirt for a dressed down look and threw on my new Topshop Merlot velvet smoking slippers(!!)

I go through these weird phases with my clothes to the point where people like Aisling can choose outfits for me from a mile away. A pair of really good velvet smoking slippers had been on my mind for a good week before I allowed myself to browse Topshop online and realised I needed them immediately. They're no Yves Saint Laurent, but they'll do!

Just a little heads-up that my #holidayhop competition with New Look ends on Friday. To enter, all you have to do is style five summer looks to be in with a chance of winning up to £400 of vouchers. I'm loving reading everyone's entries, so please do enter if you have some spare time and a gap in your wardrobe. Finally, another obligatory plea for some extra Cosmo Blog Awards votes? I'm nominated in the Established Fashion Blog category, and I'd love to see my blog's name up in lights!

  2. Those slippers are just fab! (I may have bought them straight after seeing your previous post...) I'm definitely in the market for a burgundy pair of some description too. It's so refreshing to dig out old favourites like that lovely top and find ways to 'trend them up' isn't it? xx

  4. I'm definitely interested in entering the New Look competition! Just finding time to get the styles together but will hopefully be done for Friday :) I also have a realitiees tee, it's not as nice as yours though - it has an owl on, I've never actually worn it!
