Day 3: Falling off the wagon. Ouch.

Thursday, September 25, 2008   |   8 comments

Lookit, it was bound to happen.

A leopard can't change it's spots. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. All that jazz.

Today, I was back in jeans... and a vest top and a cardigan also featured in the ensemble.

Sure it was only a matter of time: this is what happens when you own (counts on fingers... and toes...) more than 12 pairs. (Oops.)

But but but - in my defence, I also wore a dress, a scarf, a lovely pair of shoes in place of my omnipresent brown boots and a blingin' ring. So you see, y'honour, they were Dressed Up jeans and I really did make an effort. I was going to wear my skinny white jeans, so that at least I'd still be keeping away from the blue, but in a truly blonde moment I forgot that the dress would cover my arse and didn't have time to go rooting for the underwear I thought I'd need for them.

Dresses over trousers is Himself's pet hate, but at least this isn't a wrap dress which is what he seems to have a real problem with for some reason!

Attempting to break away from jeans... Day 3
* Dress, Chupi
* Jeans, 7 For All Mankind
* Sparkly cardi, Bershka
* Two-tone pashmina, present from Mam

* Blingin' ring, Accessorize

Tell you what, it's becoming increasingly feckin' difficult to find a tidy corner of the house in which to take these pics!

    Tis a label Rox, it's this young Irish girl who does the cutest little dresses & skirts & things. Biggest range of the stuff is probably in Topshop on Stephen's Green, there's some bits in Se-Sí in Temple Bar; she also sells at The Loft Market on South William Street Fri-Sun & Cow's Lane Market in Temple Bar on Saturdays. I think some of her stuff will be available to buy online from November which will be cool.

    Bet you're sorry you asked now LOL!

    Oh and are you kidding, I am totally thrilled with your visits missus!

    I just wanted to say that you have an amazng sense of style! Those pics of outfits are amazing-you have definitely inspired me to wear more dresses (even if it is only over jeans) :)

    Love these photos! Makes me feel guilty for living in jeans 24/7! I'm trying to get into the habit of wearing more skirts, but now that it's getting all winter-windy out my timing is dodgy as usual. Oh well. I'm on a mission now to find that Topshop bubble dress in blue. Now look what you've done!

    @ Alehtea - aw, thank you so much for your visit & lovely comment! I'm blushing!

    @ KittyCat - mwah hah haaaaaah. I'm on commission for referrals ;) And yeh bit freezy at the moment for skirts 'n' stuff, like what are you s'posed to wear other than jeans when it's cold?!

    @ Belle - you're kidding!! Wow that is so ment-al, small world is right. Have to say I am really loving her stuff, great to see someone so young being so successful & nice to support a home-grown talent. Tis mad how you take all the shops here totally for granted til you go away, I was *exactly* the same in Chicago!!

    Wow Lynnie you get so dressed up for work!!! I used to but since I work in a small office I have stopped bothering!!!! I prefer to save my "nice" clothes for going out etc.

    Yeh ams I think if I was in a smaller office/company or maybe working somewhere with more fellas I'd be much less inclined to play dress up!
