OOTD / 28 January 2012 OOTD / 28 January 2012 OOTD / 28 January 2012 Blazer: River Island *** Blouse: New Look *** Trousers: New Look

I'm actually cheating a bit because this is the outfit I wore yesterday, not today. I wasn't going to bother posting it because I don't like how I look in them nor do I love the outfit (it was a lazy day outfit) and the sunset cast an orange glow over the pictures, but i'm going away today and probably won't get doing an OOTD until tomorrow or Monday so wanted to post something in the meantime. Gosh, I think that may be the longest sentence I have ever put together!

I'm not a pants girl, at all. I hate wearing them because 1. I don't like how they look and 2. i'm short so its hard to find a pair that don't swamp me! Yesterday was considerably cold though so it seemed like the perfect day to break them out.
I got the trousers i'm wearing in New Look for a measly €4! Right before Christmas the New Look store in my new town had a big sale on, even better than the sale that followed on St. Stephens Day. They had a lot of old stock reduced to €4. There were a lot of rails so I had to do quite a bit of digging but came out with a few new pieces that I probably wouldn't have bought at full price but could justify purchasing at just €4 each! Almost everything left that appealed to me was in a size 16 or 18, so I was very lucky. A lot of items I already own were in the sale too. I am considering not purchasing things from New Look at full price because it seems like everything I buy there ends up in the sale at some point and although my size is usually gone, its still annoying that I paid €35 for something that is now marked down to €10!
A part of me is beginning to miss featuring my shoes in outfit posts, especially because i'm a "shoe gal" and sometimes consider them the best part of an outfit. Do you girls prefer to see outfits with shoes or does it matter?

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway so far! If you haven't entered already then you still have a week to do so!

  32. On one end, I do fancy this blazer and the blouse. You look brilliant here. I always tend to find shoes to be the most important element of an outfit. Sometimes, the wrong footwear can destroy an entire look. So that's why I always wonder what shoes are being worn with an outfit. Some footwear choices can actually be unexpectedly chic or even unexpectedly go nice together. Those are just my thoughts... from a guy's perspective.

    I am sorry I haven't been here in a while. I still think you are beautiful and have beautiful style. Keep up the great work!
