7 days, 7 looks and WTF

It's been a manic week, I've been sat on my ass a lot but that's because I work behind a computer all day. I also work from home so it's REALLY hard to even be bothered to get dressed every day - the only reason is that I have Avenue 57 to post photos and no-one wants to see me in my dressing gown.  Also I have the school run to do so I use this as the biggest excuse to get up, get ready and get out the door for 7.50am.

Yes again the weather is vile here in the UK and it's really hard to be inspired when you're wearing clothes you've been wearing in rotation for 12 months. We virtually had no summer here due to rain in 2012 and the last time I remember the sun shining with some warmth was April 2012.

Here I am over the past week - nothing new, all recycled from years ago





But it's not about me me me - there are other ladies I get daily inspiration from - here's my top picks from last week




Would love to see what you've been wearing all week - feel free to post your look on A57.

Now, what to wear today?  It's the worst kind of day - my thin pathetic frizzy hair is going to look BAD because it's raining AGAIN and I have to go out .. to hat or not to hat, that is the question?

I think this has to be the best WTF I've found in a while - the pubic hair knee high boot.  Come on, someone tell me seriously who really would buy these and who on EARTH would have paid the original price for them?!

  1. I know what you mean Fiona I'm so over wrapping up, apparently the weather is to get worse next week, I'm dreading it! Some great looks on A57 I really need to get the finger out and sign up.

    1. I heard the cold spell is coming as of tomorrow and I'm already thinking that perhaps the dress I have ready for a lunch out is not going to even touch the sides in terms of warmth!

      Would love to see you on A57

    1. Hope you have a great weekend too. I only really do casual, I feel uncomfortable in smarter because I've been casual for the past 15 years (since I last worked in an office!).

      Think I'll pack a bigger scarf for my weekend away now as the weather is to be cold tomorrow onwards - sigh

  3. You don't need to get dressed for the school run, I have been known to don knee length boots and long coat, just top off with sunglasses (on the head to pull back bed hair) and no one would ever guess you still have your pjs on. It's the sunglasses that deflect reality.

    1. I can sometimes be seen in my faux gym gear! I don't wear pj's so that would add a massive different element to the school run!!!!

  6. I have seriously lost my respect for Mango!! Great outfits this week, and in your 'inspiration look book' I particularly like the top two looks.
    Have a fab Mother's Day - I rocked a grubby dressing gown for most of the morning - well you have to have a day off sometimes!
