OOTD: Build me up buttercup
May 4, 2011
♥ Dress (underneath blouse): Topshop *** Blouse: Topshop *** Rings: Topshop/Primark ♥
My first two pictures are pretty much identical once again. I feel a bit silly posting two pictures that are so similar, but theres only so many "hand-on-hip-tilted-head-smiley-face" poses I can do before they begin to look alike! I can't pull off moody/pouty faces (nor do I really want to..) and I am not a wannabe model so this is just "me". I guess I could start turning around to show the side of my outfit, or maybe even add in whatever handbag I happen to be wearing on that day. I wish there was some kind of blogger advice book on how to pose for outfit pictures.
This is the scalloped blouse from my "fairest of them all" post a couple of weeks ago. I think it would look much better if it was slightly baggy and not so fitted). I usually go one size up to an 18 for button-up blouses, but I got this in the largest size available (UK 16). I dream of the day when Topshop start making clothes in size 18. The skirt is actually the dress from my last outfit post! I love the soft blue color paired with the blouse, so pretty and fresh. Together they remind me of the wonderful blue skies and fields filled with buttercups during spring :)
I began the "30 day shred" recently, which I have been talking about quite a bit on twitter. Today was my sixth day, making it over day ten is the trickiest from past experience. I'm not doing it to "shred" inches/pounds but rather as a quick full body work out every morning. I want to tone up my calves which running will (hopefully) help, but I feel that the rest of me should be getting a little work out too which is where the shred comes in! I know quite a few girls have also began the shred after we talked about it on twitter, so good luck to everyone!
