clovember 1-9

WP_20131107_015

Over the years I have developed something of an obsession with bird print, a weakness which has gladdened the heart of many a retailer.

The long black pencil skirt is from M&S purchased years ago and still holding strong as The Best Skirt Ever.

And a knottable necklace is doing double-duty as a bracelet.

clovember 2nd

Lovely grey Phase Eight sweater-dress, via eBay. So soft and warm it's like wearing a kitten.

I forgot to take a picture on November 3rd on account of running around Chessington all day, but it is essentially the same getup as below, except with one of my many grey sweaters.

clovember 4th

Gap Curvy jeans and berry cowl-neck sweater.

clovember 5th

More comfort clo's to help get me through a day of team meetings.

clovember 6th

Today's clo's were assembled in the dark.
Shoutout to Boden cropped cashmere cardigan (sourced at 70% off in their ebay store) which I wear solidly from November until May.

clovember 7th

Denim pencil skirt, stripy Mango cowlneck that is older than my marriage, M&S tights and navy boots from Next that are up to the challenge of wide calves.

clovember 8th

Orange bird dress of joy and optimism.

clovember 9th

Awesomely comfortable wide-leg jeans and a cleavage-tastic top from Dorothy Perkins.

Oh man, you have the best wardrobe (and the best way of according it to your figure - for want of a better way of phrasing that). Boden have an eBay store? *Is sunk*

Thank you!
Clothes have become a secret joy over the years and it has felt nice to branch out from the somewhat oppressive clothing-opinions I grew up with.

I have been loving your Clovember posts - the pink jeans are awesome.

Bird print! I am a recent convert, I bought a dress in a charidee shop recently which is originally Wallis and has such a gorgeous bird print on it that now I am keeping a constant eye out for more.

I love your style so much.

I think the culmination of my Bird Love will one day be a bird tattoo, but I am still thinking about various designs.

The dress sounds like an excellent find - what colour is it?

Thank you! Orange bird dress is from some random internet catalog place (isme maybe? freemans?)They tend to have a lot of strange stuff but always some nice and relatively cheap things too if you can be bothered to slog through pages of frump and satin.

Beautiful outfits, well worn. Your hair has really grown!

There is a French girl in my office and you have very similar colouring and hair and she often reminds me of you :)

Thank you!
My hair has not been this long in years, I think thanks to the current absence in my life of babies obsessed with grabbing it.

I love the last two pics (I love them all, but especially the last two).

When I make my millions I'm gonna hire you to pick out my wardrobe and decorate my house. I love it all!

Thank you!
I'm a terrible decorator I think (unless you share my magpie affinities), but I do love clothes.
