Wardrobe Weekly

This is my 300th post apparently - this explains where this year has gone huh?! It's been a busy week... a busy month actually, but I've found time to join Instagram at last. I'm plumpparsnip on there if you want to follow me and be bored by pictures of any random shit I like!

 I kept it Simple because I was two outfits Parsnips on Monday!
 I wore my new Primark shoes (which are also available in black, but you know, they always sell out of black shoes in size 7!) which are pretty awesome considering they're both pointy and flat.
 These are surprisingly comfortable and I know I'm going to love them with socks when it gets a bit colder! The ankle fastening is a bit fiddly, but it's pretty secure once it's done up. These are a sort of ox-blood red / burgundy in real life, despite them looking sort of brown here!

 In the evening I got all dolled up for a lovely posh do and wore the lovely dress I got from Asos Curve for £16. I got so many compliments so I guess it was a good look! The little jacket is an old stunner from H&M (standard range) that is sort of Art Deco in style. One day I'll remember to show you the back, which is the bast part of it!
 The dress is rather booby on me, but thats no bad thing.... it's subtle boob! Free fizz!
 So the little shoes I got from New Look were super pretty and comfy during the party, but for walking around London afterwards? Not so much! My feet never cope will with this kind of straight cut band, unless it's super soft fake leather!

 I felt a bit wrong on Tuesday (see the glass in my hand above? that was refilled more times that I could count!) so I wore super stretchy and comfy clothes.

Skirt 20 & shoes - Primark

 I love this outfit. I's rare that I wear completely pattern-free clothing, so maybe it's the unusualness I enjoyed? I'm not sure, but I felt fab in this. Very comfy, but also very smart. It's hard to see here, but the trousers are cobolt blue, as are the shoes.
 I really really love these Barbara Hulaniki tops from George, they're very versatile and stylish, but they're lovely and loose (not clingy) so I can wear them with pretty much anything!

 Oh how I love a change of pace! From funky smart to vintage lady! This is one of my MANY vintage Evans dresses. I still don't have any modern Evans dresses, but I'm planning to buy many of the pieces from the Evans Collective range when it's released (well, IF it's released as seen on the catwalk!).
 I got this on ebay a while back and I love love love it! The ladies at work really liked this dress for some reason. I guess it's quite a classic shape!

 I was off site on Friday, and it was so hot and humid that I wore a nice lightweight summer dress. The jacket came off at lunchtime and didn't go back on until the evening!
 Asos holographic plimsols. These are now available in gold too, and I want them (obviously!)
 In case my outfit wasn't bright enough... you know.
 It's been a long time since I was near the dome. Nice day for it!
 After work I met my boyfriend and went to Greenwich park while the sun set, before going off for some grub (and a strawberry daiquiri!)
 Drinking in the park. Nice! I also got about 800 mosquito bites during this particular jaunt. Bastards!

 Today I didn't really get dressed (I'm wearing a jumpsuit and no undies - you don't need to see that!) but yesterday I HAD to go out and get food, so I put clothes on. I love the colour of this t-shirt from Asos Curve, it's excellent!

  1. I adore friday's outfit! Its simply perfect and the accessories! WOW.
    BTW I love your hair.

  2. That vintage dress is lovely. How old is it? Me and Mum used to get fed up of Evans on a regular basis, but they must have occasionally come up with something nice!

  3. Thank you! xx

  4. I think the dress is probably from the late 80's. I have some lovely vintage Evans stuff, they sold some good dresses back in the 70's / 80's, and then in the 90's they had the 'Seven' range which occasionally had super cool stuff. I haven't really shopped with them for the last 10 years though as their standard range is boring and expensive for the quality!
