Is this mauve? I think it’s mauve, but then again, colour names are not my forte. In any case, I think it’s a pretty good match for my difficult plaid skirt.

Nailed the colour?

Speaking of difficult things, my hair, you guys. Oh, my hair. I tried to give myself those fashun bloggery loose waves, and failed miserably (as I tend to do at all fashun bloggery things). I documented my feelings about it on Instagram, because of course. What kind of fashun blogger would I be if I didn’t, I ask you. Anyway, if you missed my odd facial expressions, you’re in luck.

loose curls; loose waves
Did NOT nail the hairdo …

Ahem. Oh look, pretty, shiny bag.

Eh, it’s all about the bag anyway

  1. I’m glad you got that skirt, but I agree that it’s difficult to work with. It’s one of those pieces that can look chic in just the right context, or “Mumsy” in the wrong one. I think something fitted on top would be best, in black or cream. Boring, I know – but they’re wardrobe staples for a reason, right?
