Sometimes I yearn for the blogging ‘good old days’. When an outfit post was just an outfit post, my inbox was empty of press releases about Kim Kardashian and things like affiliate links, sponsored posts and articles titled ‘How to Monetize Your Blog’ didn’t exist.
I’ve been a little bit absent lately, mostly due to travelling, weddings, meetings, work, work and work. But also because writing a blog post can seem like a gargantuan task sometimes. It’s nice to just sit down with some pretty basic outfit shots and write about what’s happening, so that’s what I’ll do.
In these photos I’m wearing my current go-to outfit. According to the British weather it’s October, and all the pretty bits and bobs I’ve been saving for the sunshine are yet to be worn. So it’s back to my failsafe printed tea dress, a lightweight parka and these amazing ankle boots – I’ve been wearing these Valensi boots (and the suede version) non-stop since they arrived at my door. They’re perfect with short dresses and bare legs for that ‘fashionable festival’ look, plus they keep my toes dry when it (inevitably) chucks it down. Love. Them.
Unfortunately my lovely tan (part USA sunshine, part Garnier Summer Body Gradual Self Tan) has faded away to nothing, so you get to gaze upon my pasty white legs. Sorry about that!
