Wardrobe weekly +

I didn't do a wardrobe weekly last week, because I was having a staycation and didn't get dressed on more than one day or forgot to take pictures when I did! Lazy Parsnip. Anyway, I've included all the outfit pics I have from the last fortnight...

 Y'all have seen my Cambridge post I'm sure, but the dress is lovedrobe, jacket George.

 I think this is was my 3rd time wearing these boohoo jeans.....
Oh dear. They're fucked already. Have to send them back for a refund as they've now sold out :(
 Top 22 - George
Jeans 24 - Boohoo
Shoes - crocs

There was then lots of eating, drinking, watching t.v /films and sleeping!
 My version of the extremely easy to copy low calorie summer salad from pizza express...

Chicken breast (I used leftovers from a roast chicken)
Goats cheese (a nice salty tart one with soft centre and brie-like skin)
Mixed salad leaves
Fresh mint leaves
Fresh basil leaves
Pizza express light house dressing.

It sounds odd I know, but I could eat this everyday, the balance of flavours is perfection!

I guess this is aimed at the organic 'sugar is poison' folks 'cause otherwise I'm not sure what the point of it is. It's nowhere near as good as normal coke, but it's miles better than diet coke. Kind of similar to coke zero because you know there's something amiss, but it doesn't leave the fake flavour in your mouth that diet coke does. I wouldn't really bother with it again!

 Again, you've seen this outfit from my London post, but here's a nice out-take - my boyfriend finds it amusing to snap me when I'm in action! Dress from Lovedrobe again, jacket New Look.

Tuesday again
 Blurgh... back to work! Oh the confusion!
 I'm really loving these George tops - I love a bit of draping and ruching!
 Top 24 - George
Jeggings 22 - Dorothy Perkins

 I really love this dress, it's just so damn cute!
 For some reason (although I've worn them many times before) my black loafers gave me the worst blisters. I must remember to wear them with socks in the future!
 Make up matching glasses!
 Glasses - Selecspecs
Dress 24 - Lovedrobe
Cardi 20 - Primark
Leggings 22 - South / very
Shoes - new look
earrings, matt lipstick and nail varnish - Primark
 I got home to find a snowstorm inside my freezer - I had clearly not closed it properly so I had to clear it all up. Nearly missed the bake off!

 I decided I had better ear my cute Asos summer dresses this week before the coldness set in for real! I just got this cute bag from Primark, it comes in black and beige too.
 After the blisters I could only wear my crocs 'cause everything else rubbed my feet!
 I felt so lady like in this!
I'm trying to resist another floral midi that's just come onto the asos site (this one!). It's jersey fabric so it bet it's lovely!
 Jacket 22 - New Look
Dress 26 - Asos Curve

 Oh how I love this dress!
 I managed not to spill anything on it all day!

 Yesterday I went out for lunch at Chicken Liquor (previously called Wishbone) in Brixton Village. We had put it off for ages because people are always slagging it off, but I have no idea why... the Thai boneless bites were delicious, as was the side I had... can't remember what it was called, but it was sweetcorn, spring onions, feta, sour cream and mayo mixed up like a potato salad and sprinkled with cayenne pepper. Totally scrummy and I plan to make it at home if I have people over (it's a perfect BBQ side dish!). I then went swimming, bought a drill, came home and did some DIY....
Drilling into our walls is a tricky job because they seem to be made out of diamond. I'm a bit achy today, but I FINALLY put up some hooks and this beautiful drawing by a friend of mine. I also put together the cheapest shoe rack in the world so I have somewhere to put the shoes I can't fit anywhere else! Then I did my mammoth spectacle post. I was wearing my (I'm so glad I bought it 'cause it's excellent') Primark Jumpsuit. I don't know why I didn't think to take a picture while I was taking all those other pictures, but hey, it's too late now!

Today has been nice and relaxing. I painted my nails with my new nail polish from poundland of all places! I have been looking for this colour for ages - it looks like coral here, but it's actually pinker in real life. I don't know what you would even call this bright colour, but It's delicious and lovely. I'm wearing my old Asos Curve floral tapestry midi dress. I'm off to watch more of 'The Returned' now, which I can already tell I'm going to be obsessed with!


  1. Bloody hell time flies, Parsnip. I mark the weeks with these posts, because they seem to zoom by like days! x x

  3. This whole year feels like it's gone by in just a few months. I still feel like it's the end of February, but it's only 3 months till Christmas (YEY!) xx
