Easy does it

May 03, 2014

Getting dressed if often a trade-off between looking (and feeling) awesome and being comfortable all day. I have quite a few outfits that are both awesome and comfortable but can be a little dressy for day-to-day wear (I'd rather not be stared at in Tesco for doing my shopping in a 50's style ball-gown). This outfit wasn't thought out in much detail, rather it grew from the fact that I was wearing this jumper over my pyjamas at breakfast. I added a simple black skirt and a pair of flats and I was ready to leave the house. Naturally, I included some bling (I hate that word) in the form of my bee brooches and some rings. Anyway, after catching my reflection in a window while I was out I decided the outfit was nice enough to be posted, so here we are!

You may have noticed that the photos look a little different, that's because I'm playing with my new(ish) toy; a Sony QX10. I love being able to just stick it in my bag and lug it around anywhere, because it's so small! It's not a replacement for my beloved canon but it's certainly fun and the quality exceeds that of my phone's inbuilt camera. It means that I can take photos at those unexpected opportunities that arise when I don't have my main kit with me, so you might well see more material from this little fellow in the future.

  1. This is a great outfit, it kind of reminds me of audrey horne (your waist is so tiny!). For years I've loved pale dusty colours, but I've noticed I've been wearing all black, moody outfits lately. The brooches are also great, bee motifs have a special place in my heart.

  2. Lovely skirt and bee brooches! They are the most adorable outfit detail. :)

  3. ooo i really like this outfit! simple and lovely. Especially the shoes! I need to invest in a smaller camera. I often leave my camera at home cause its so heavy to lug around all day while I'm out, and there have been many times where I wished I had it.

  4. I'm with you on comfort - I often evaluate an outfit on what I'll be doing or how long I'll be doing it for - there's nothing worse than feeling trapped in a constricting dress!

  5. I love the bee brooches! I have quite a few clothes that I don't wear as often as I like because of the comfort thing. I have to go with comfort almost every time these days.
