a new look



So on Sunday I decided to try out a new look = brogues + over-the-knee socks. I find that I used to be quite fashion forward and over the years I have just fallen behind. Posting outfits has definatley got me thinking more about the outfits I put together and wear out, so I feel I am slowly getting back up there. Of course - I must thank you all - all your fabulous blogs which I read pretty much daily, have given me so much inspiration.

So what do we think about brogues and over-the-knee socks? I know brogues have been in fashion for some time now but I find myself a bit slow with certain trends so please excuse me. I dont think its my style really... but I thought, heck .... who cares I'll just have a go. I asked Scott what he thought of the outfit after I got dressed, and his long silence didnt do much for my confidence, but I decided to venture out anyways.

The school holidays are almost over and while I have been quite productive, there is still so much on my to-do list, and it just keeps growing. We leave for Greece in just over two weeks time, and I really wanted to be mostly packed before I go back to work on Monday, but I really dont see that happening. Before I know it, i'll be back at work, planning lessons and organising stuff for my students and I'll find no time at all for organising things for our trip!! Ahhh the stress I have to look forward to! 

Our Christmas in July party is this Saturday night and I am oh-so-super-excited! Have you go much planned for this weekend? Hope everyone has a beauiful day xx

  2. I LOVE the socks! I've always wanted to do over the knee sock. You have definetly inspired me to do so now. I agree with you too, so many blogs are my inspiration as well. Real people, not models in magazines. x

  5. I love your brogues, especially the colour. Their so different to the tan and black ones you normally see.

  6. One thing I've learned-- you shouldn't always take what the boy says to heart! My guy gives me the craziest looks some days. Plus, I've always thought if you're dressing only for the boy, you're probably not doing it for the right reasons in the first place. Anyway, this looks fantastic!

  10. Well, just because they've been in style doesn't mean you can't reinvent them with your own touch! Adorable.

  13. Love the look of a baggy sweater over a skirt. The over-the-knee socks are definitely a nice touch. The orange shawl adds a pop of colour beautifully too!

    Sincerely,
