Silly purchases

Arrgh does anyone else have the odd silly purchase and kick themselves or is it just me?
I bought these Mango platform sandals a size up, there is a method to this madness, I tried the size 5 in the shop and it looked amazing, but I thought they were a little tight. I went home and looked at them online because I couldn’t stop thinking about them. I decided to get the 6  – what could go wrong? they have a buckle so I can tighten them up. They arrived, hurray they fit well and look fantastic, I walk around my flat in them for a bit – I am happy. I am winning!

So a few days have passed and I have decided today is the day and I will venture out in them. I walk for about 10 mins and DISASTER! my toes keep popping under the top strap meaning my toe is sticking out underneath and it bloody hurts. Hit me with a feather –  I have to wear these all day. I get home, they are scuffed from a days walking which means I CAN’T RETURN THEM LOOKING LIKE THIS! they go back in the box, I don’t think I have worn them out again – BUGGER THAT. So ladies and Gentlemen there is exhibit A for a perfect example of a silly purchase.

They are currently on the Vinted App for sale – sad face.

Go French

Go French – I am obsessed with my beret, you have to carefully consider what you wear with it, otherwise you feel incredibly silly.

I found a long sleeved stripy top with squiggly red writing and of course had to buy it, what a sucker for a stripy top. This was £20 from Topshop and perfect for layering. Oui oui mon cherie.

Only 5 minutes…

In the occasion where I only have 5 minutes to get ready, I always go for comfort and 99.5% of the time I’m not happy with what I have chosen to wear. This picture is a perfect example, I have my slouchy Uniqglo shirt, my brogues from Asos, and my skinny jeggings from Gap.

I would likely wear this to get a pint of milk, not to go to work in. I love dressing up for things rather than dressing down. The idea of saving your best clothes for special occasions is nonsense. You look good, you feel good. I think I need to be a bit more organised in the morning and leave the comfort look for the milk run.
