Okay okay, so I just began to profess my undying love for trousers and grown-up alternatives to all things clothing, but today I couldn’t resist wearing my wine red velvet shorts. I saw these lying on top of my floordrobe and thought I’d give them another wear, paired with ribbed knit tights, my Bambi shirt (if I’m going to be frivolous about fashion, I might as well do it properly!) and my cosy coat. Where many people opt for a Breton stripe and jeans/leggings (see here) for their go-to look, I think my signature look will always revert to shorts, a tailored shirt, standard eclectic print and tights, no? Sorry about already over-wearing this coat on the ol’ blog, it’s become my favourite thing in life and the crazy-huge pockets mean I don’t even need a bag. Fittingly, somehow with the addition of the boyfriend blazer coat, this still feels ‘right’ circa 2012.
So! The Cosmo Blog Awards 2012 have certainly whizzed round this year, haven’t they? I keep forgetting I was nominated and shortlisted, in all honesty, and it feels like a bit of a dream to be heading over for the awards ceremony on Thursday evening. I’m excited to see lots of my blogging favourites for a catch-up, see the events unfold and mostly to wear a dress courtesy of Wish Want Wear, who have kindly sent over a few options for me to hire and wear on the night! Can you guess which dress I opted for?
Right then, heading back to my cove of a bedroom to sift and sort through an embarrassing number of nail varnishes. (Into colour order.) ♥
