Floral Fade

SUP!

Sorry I've not blogged in a while! Had a majorly busy one at work last week and the was away seeing family and friends at the weekend. Have got lots of new blog ideas, so am really going to try and get back into the routine of regular blogging! 

Here's what I wore to work yesterday:

(shirt: H&M, jacket - H&M Kids! skinny jeans: M&S


My pretty new clogs are a prezzie from Sarenza! They're 'Victoria' by Moheda, a nice soft-leather clog style shoe with a bit of a twist due to the ankle strap! They're a low heel (my fave kind) and are super comfy. Like loads of stuff on the Sarenza site at the mo, they've got 40% off at the moment, so only cost £44.40. A lot of 4's in that sentence, 4 real! 

The blouse gets loads of nice comments but the boob button just refuses to stay done up! I was doing street style photography in East London yesterday and kept flashing my hideous-but-oh-so-sturdy pearlescent mauve t-shirt bra to London's coolest... 

Life has been busy but fab lately. Really getting the hang of things at work and loving it more every day. The 3G signal on my iPad has proven to be a bit crummy, so I haven't been able to maximise the dead commute time as much as I had hoped.  Some days it seems to work better than others, but on bad days I can't even Instagram, let alone blog from it, like I really wanted to! I'm using a GiffGaff (O2's sister company) data simcard at the mo, does anyone have any recommendations of other data plans? Thinking a new provider might offer better 3G! 

I'm off to continue watching Super Tiny Animals which I recorded the other night... It's pretty mental! 

So what's new with you?!

  1. Aww Gem love this outfit, that shirt is so cute. Yeah feeling you on the boobie button, and the dull but sturdy bra front. I would have had it today, but wore a cheeky little vest top underneath. So glad every thing is going well, living the dream Gem! xxxxx

  6. This shirt is adorable, hnm have a way of killing it at the moment. I'm still a bit feared of the open toe shoe, but I think this mostly comes from the biblical rain we're getting in Glasgow. x

  7. I have a tesco mobile iPhone contract which piggy-backs on 02 and its really rubbish 3G signal too. Apparently Three is the best for wide coverage.

  14. Love your outfit, the blouse is so amazing! I use Orange, and their 3G is quite consistent - you don't get it all the time, and it's quite slow, but I can normally have it on the train most times. And the times when it's not working are all at the same points if you know what I mean! :) But loads of people don't recommend Orange so... Basically if you do switch to Orange because of this comment - which I highly doubt - don't blame me if you find it a bit rubbish. I've never tried anything else you see!

  19. love this blouse, I have eyed it up for ages , you look BEAUT, though. So proud and happy for you that you're job is going well.

  20. Button popping will be the death of my dignity. One thing I found worked was putting a few tiny stitches in a buttonhole, to make it as small as possible (obvs whilst still being able to put the button through!) and making sure the button itself is stitched on tightly. I've also used hook and eye thingys (is that what they're called?!) stitched on as a bit of a backup.

    Glad your job's going well, sucks about the 3G though! I'm currently looking at commuter-y type jobs (I feel all grown up!) and will need Wi-Fi on the train to keep me occupied and get things done! I've used train Wi-Fi before, but it's not that good and paying for it every day would get expensive very quickly I imagine! x

  21. Blouse is gorgous, would be really nice paired with a bright maxi skirt or shorts too x miaoliver.blogspot.com

  22. That shirt is great :D I have a lot of shirts with boob button issues too, and I don't even have much to burst out! Always end up popping a lil safety pin on the inside.

  25. I really love the blouse, the pattern's v similar to the dresses they have in stock at "LOVE" and I've been lusting after those for a while now. Looks like a trip to H&M is in order!

    I've never really considered Sarenza for shoes but have been seeing more and more pairs that I quite fancy of late. These clogs are so cute! Especially like how chunky the strap around the ankle is :)

  26. Ah the boob button, my nemesis. Shirt fits perfectly everywhere but the boob. Boo to the boob.
    Those shoes are pretty amazing, and look great for mooching about snapping street folk.

  30. The boob button is the bane of my life, I usually have to size up my shirts to avoid flashing people! Super Tiny Animals sounds amazing, I'm away to look it up!

  33. That shirt is so pretty and I love your shoes! I hate when the boob button pops open, I have a couple of shirts that do that and it's so annoying cos I'm constantly checking to see if I'm flashing everyone when I wear them! :) xx

  37. You look fab and those shoes look stylish and comfortable. A rare combination.

    I so know what you mean about the boob button...it's really annoying. Don't worry though, some East Londeners walk around in swimming costumes, so I'm sure you're fine :)
