BEDN The End

Monday, December 02, 2013

You know that I love a challenge but BEDN (Blog Everyday in November) beat me, just like BEDM (May). I think that 21 posts in a month is pretty good going for someone that doesn't ordinarily post everyday, and it's an improvement on my efforts in May, so I'm chuffed. For me BEDN didn't end with a thoughtful, well written summary, it just fizzled out quietly - illustrated neatly by the fact that I'm posting this two days late. I enjoyed it none-the-less and I'll still be posting some of the topics from the month, albeit rather late! And keep an eye out for the new blogs coming soon to my blogroll, discovered thanks to BEDN.

Today I'm joining in with Megan and Nora's Monday Inspiration. I can't believe that I don't own a grey roll neck jumper - not that I need anymore winter woolies. But I might see if I can find a pattern to knit myself one. After talking about knitting for BEDN I've had a hankering to get my sticks out again and at the rate I knit it'll probably take me until next year to finish it.

I love this poncho, I've had it for about three years now and every winter it comes out to keep me warm. I find it really nice to wear over layers without adding yet another layer to my arms - I hate the bulky feeling that comes with one layer too many, but at the same time I don't do cold. Warmth always wins. I am one of those people who sees a girl wearing a short skirt (no tights!!) and no coat on a night out and starts mumbling about her 'catching her death'.

Do you like my shoes? They're from Next and are fast becoming my favourite pair, more interesting than a plain black pair and the sequins are subtle enough make them perfect for day or night. Super comfy too.

I also added a hat to the outfit, it's a new hat - I wanted to wear it - but more than that, after hurting my shoulder at the weekend I can't get my arms up high enough to wash my hair (not without quite a lot of pain anyway). I can't turn to my right or sit in one position for too long either. Fingers crossed I'll be more flexible tomorrow. If not, I'm going to have to get Andy to do it for me and I know that will end in an argument or one or both of us being drenched. Probably all of those things.

Hope you're having a good Monday.

  1. I don't think I could blog every day in one month but having topics would really help. I've done loads lately but other times I have zero time or inspiration! xx

  2. The topics are a great help! I did get frustrated that didn't have the time to post every day but I enjoyed doing those that I did.

  3. what a great outfit. i love that poncho and those shoes! i hope your shoulder feels better soon!

    1. Thanks, with luck I'll be fighting fit for the weekend :)
      I love this poncho, it's so comfy and hides a multitude of sins x

  4. Dear me, I have such a picture in my head of you getting your hair washed, could be a disaster by the sounds of it! Love that poncho, I have 2 but they're both a bit short really.

    1. I have to admit I've contemplated ringing my hairdresser to see if she can fit me on for a wash and blow dry!

  5. Great photo and great shoes. I always love shoes and the more unique yet comfortable the BETTER!!! ♥

  6. I am dying over those shoes!!!

  7. WHen I broke my arm, I went to the hairdresser to get my hair washed twice!! Expensive business! A hat does an equally good job! I also ended BEDN with a fizzle, I just got too busy to finish off and somehow didn't manage to do it- pluys had other things I wanted to post! Love your poncho! I dressed up for the Inspiration today but the light is so terrible in my house and lost tripod so no photos- CBC is out so no photographer instead!x

  8. Great look! A very chic blending of gray and black! Hugs, T.
