Wardrobe wake up: double bill finale! Day 7 & 8!


Ahoy there!

Thanks for all of your great comments on the wardrobe wakeup posts. Even though I haven't replied personally to all of your comments just yet (it takes me ages because I get sooo distracted reading your various blogs!) I just want you to know I love your feedback! Glad some of you have been inspired to try some new things too!

Yesterday I was inspired by that cute 80's chick from X Factor, so decided to go to the pub quiz in 80's getup! It's a look I never try, and I though it might be our lucky charm, but we didn't do very well in the quiz at all. I guess you can't win 'em all... Speaking of winning, I bought Boggle in a charity shop earlier! Can't wait to kick Alex's butt, but am slightly worried it might be our undoing. (We're both rather competitive!)

Today, I was theoretically free to slouch about in a t-shirt and leggings, as it has now been over a week since I started my little wardrobe experiment, but I inadvertently wore something unusual. I bought the midi length skirt recently in a charity shop. It feels so unusual wearing a skirt this length, and looks pretty weird too, but at least I can say I've tried it! Sorry for being a mega garment-repeater, but I love my new jacket so much.

I've had such fun dressing up differently this week. It's been quite time consuming and a bit stressful having to actually use my imagination rather than wear the same old thing. Thanks for sharing the adventure with me!

  4. I think I'm going to try and be more creative with my wardrobe, I have so much that is under-utilised, so this has been a great series. I love the print of that skirt.

  5. Oh god I want that kitten tee so bad! It's amazing!

    I havent commented much over these posts (or anyone elses recently because my life is so unorganised at the minute) but I wanted to say that you have rocked some amazing looks and I think this was totally brave of you. I'm quite inspired to do something similar!

  6. I really love that second outfit, but, if I'm honest, I don't like it with that jacket! Would have preferred it with a big old grandad cardigan but otherwise it's great. And I'm jealous of every piece, including that fabulous jacket!

  7. I don't think the skirt looks weird at all, infact I think the way you've styled it with the kit-sch (!) tee and aviator jacket is a little bit amazing!
    This outfit has that effortless styling, geeky, punky and cute rolled into one. Total winner!!!

    oh yeah, did I happen to mention I loved it?!!!

  13. Ooh it's the pink polka dot dress! I've definitely commented before on how much I love that dress - but I'm going to say it again, it's amazing!

    I happen to rather like your skirt - I would probably wear it myself - probably to work, where I'm not allowed to wear short skirts!

    Gotta be totally honest though, the cat tshirt freaks me out a bit! You can pull it off - but yeah, freaks me out a bit - definitely not a 'cat person' myself!

  16. the cat t-shirt is quite amazing and you managed to pull off the outfit well considering the length of the skirt :)

  17. I also love your new jacket! I think I have just ordered the same one! I wanted a subtle aviator jacket. I loved the 80s girl from x factor I think she really looks fantastic! I wonder if she blogs!

  20. Nice Gem, you even had me rummaging at the back of the cupboard, where I found a grand old pencil skirt I'd forgotten about, amongst other things. It's way too easy to grab whatever's on top of the laundry pile and chuck it on.

    Thanks a mil!

  21. Midi skirts confuse me too. They feel strange, like going to school with your skirt fitting the below the knee rule. I have to stop myself rolling it up like I'm at school again...

  25. I've enjoyed seeing your wardrobe wake up, maybe you should do it again sometime, maybe after you've recovered from this one!
    I'm not surprised you've been wearing the jacket a lot, if it was mine I'd never take it off! completely jealous.
    Hah, funny that you got boggle, me and my boyfriend turned into board game losers. We can't get enough of boggle, mostly because we are SO competitive too and have to keep playing to end up the winner. It never ends! Prepare for fights about made up words though! stupid boys. x

  30. Love your 80s look and that amazing cat tshirt!! I hate playing games with the Mr as we are both pretty competitive! I have been known to cheat at Monopoly just so I can win!

  31. I'm so inspired to try this challenge on my own blog...but I have to lose a few pounds so I'll actually be able to fit into all my clothes. Motivation to lose weight!

  32. I'm currently obsessed with this length skirt and it looks perfect on you. ANd i LOVE the cat t-shirt, my cat's looking over my shoulder and she likes it too.

    Great blog, i'm glad to have discovered it! x

  33. Both of these outfits are amazing! The fantastic over the top 80s-ness, and then the granny chic... too much, too much.
    I've just found your blog and am currently doing the archives! Also, I really like your hair, you're making me so want to chop all my hair off again. But I must resist the urge.
