over-dressed?

22th October 2011
Is blogging twice in one day a sign of dedication or of a need for a life? I’ve been toying with this for a number of hours now….yes hours. Anywhooo, another thing that’s been playing on my mind recently is the notion of being over dressed. I see a lot of students on both lookbook and blogger appearing to rock heels every day. This is a habit I have (I just feel dumpy if I haven’t got 2 or 3 inches under foot) I’ll shop in heels, pretend to listen in lectures in heels and pick my sister up from school in heels, without a second thought. Then a few weeks ago I met someone who said when in conversation “Oh yeah your the girl that always wears heels to Uni!” and I was a bit like….errr I’m known for this? It’s something strange? should I not? I mean I know The University of Northampton isn’t the most fashionable Uni out there…especially when you take into account the amount of god awful Paul’s boutique bags there are being dragged from lecture theater to lecture theater. But still I don’t get this notion that we should drag ourselves to University similarly to the way we drag our selves from bed. Yes Uggs are comfortable to walk in but do you really feel comfortable as a person, like your representing who you are? Am I being completely materialistic in this thought? I seriously need some feedback on this one, tell me your thoughts!!!!!!! p.s. following the purchase of my Topshop boutique boots I simply had to have some Pleather trousers to rock them with….   and Yes I will be donning the get up to uni 🙂

Hello April, the most exciting month of them all!
Ad Embarking on a journey of timeless treasures, my passion for antiquing began in the warmth of late summer 2019. When I discovered my father’s old boarding school tuck trunk nestled in the attic of their home. Since then, my weekends have unfolded like chapters in a novel, meandering through antiques emporiums and brocantes across the country.

Each trip unveils a tapestry of tales from bygone eras - from weathered pickling jars and vases to opulent French chandeliers and steamer trunks, and with each trip, I was captivated by the hidden secrets and untold histories woven into each artefact.

Introducing ‘Scented Mementos’ - an enchanting limited edition collection by @jomalonelondon Each fragrance, a symphony of memories, encapsulates the essence of cherished moments. Immerse yourself in the zesty allure of Emerald Thyme, or indulge in the spicy nostalgia of Ginger Beer, where notes of ginger, roasted oak, and cinnamon intertwine to evoke memories of British antiques markets.
where every scent is a love letter to the past, a fragrant homage to the beauty of antiquity. #ScentsOfBritain #JoMaloneLondon Paid partnership
