Ink blot...

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Its been awhile since Ive worn navy... it use to be a colour I loved and wore frequently but its been replaced with orange and autumnal tones. But this little dress with claret ribbon won its way into my over crammed wardrobe. I just couldn't resist!

I dunno about the rest of the UK or world but here in Northern Ireland the temperature has dropped and its now freezing cold! This time of year is particularly hard for bloggers like me who blog about outfits they wear or OOTD photos. Its dark all the time which means for me outfit photos can only be done at the weekend. But the one thing about taking photos at this time of year that I find really hard is the cold... the 'do i whip my coat off and brave it for 15 minutes of shivering just to get some photos where you can see my outfit properly or do I wimp out and keep my coat on and stay warm.'

Today I opted for being a wimp...

  1. The ribbon is a cute addition to the outfit!

    I agree with the outfit photos thing... all mine are taken outside so lighting and temperature really do go against us don't they!? *sigh*

  9. Such pretty colors all paired together! It's gotten to be cold over here as well, I have to take my photo shoots on the weekends since it gets too dark so fast after work.

  15. Haha you're only semi-wimpy because you kept your coat open, insead of closed! Good work! When I went to the UK in winter I didn't realise how cold it would be, and I walked around with my face buried in my scarf most of the time. I envy your stylishness!

  16. Well if you are shivering it doesn't show. You look so well put together. The casual jacket with the pretty dress...and the shoes finish it off nicely. It's the type of outfit I wish I could pull off as effortlessly. :)

  24. The last paragraph is so true. I live in Estonia, which is in Northern Europe and outfitshots are really tricky. I have nowhere near enough coats and other outerwear to make an with those and because of the last pictures I took outside, I have a cold now. SO I'll have to switch over for bad-lighted indoors pictures.
    Also, the darkness!! It's awful, I feels that it limits everything .
