It happens every time.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

After a few busy weeks I should have seen it coming. I slowed down, started to relax a little and then I became ill. I got a cold, swiftly followed by a bout of sinusitis. It happens every. single. time.

So, three days off work, plenty of relaxing and lots of sleep and I'm feeling much better. Well, I say I relaxed but I didn't, not really, I never do. I always feel that there is something I could be doing, no matter how grotty I feel. So I pottered about doing this and that, emptying bins, sorting through mail, hacking back rampant pumpkin plants (yes, really). I know I'm not the only one to do this when I'm ill (not taking it easy rather than the pumpkin thing). I bet you do it too, don't you? Why can't we just sit still and do nothing?


Anyway here is my outfit for Inspiration Monday. I think that the Two Birds are responsible for most of the wear that these jeans get. They're often selected for Inspiration Monday (see herehere and here).

I love Olivia's use of colour but emerald blazers and yellow jeans aren't really my thing so I went for a more muted version.

It has become apparent to me that taking outfit shots outside is about to become more difficult. Whilst I was still in need of sunglasses the wind and humidity did strange things to my hair. This was the only photo of approximately 30 photographs where I look remotely normal.

Love

    1. I am feeling better now thanks, although my first day back at work has tired me out.
      I love the natural light if taking pics outside bit it just gets so problematic as the weather turns... *sigh*

  6. Ha I totally do that too - had 2 days off work last week and boyfriend would ask me if I'd slept during the day and I'd look at him like he was mad. Of course I didn't, I pottered my little head off!
