“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.” —Betsey Johnson
Bloody week five guys!! One more week and I am going to call myself a fashion blogger for sure! Can you believe I am on week bloody five because I can’t!! In case you missed it my sister convinced me to start up emmas_happy-wardrobe to show my daily looks! Not sure anyone but my sister is actually going to be interested but I have started to really enjoy it. I would describe my style as unsupervised 5 year old so the page is pretty damn colourful! Also I figured if I am already posting on Instagram I should really post on here! I rarely buy anything new or I should say full price. My normal buys are sale items and charity shop finds which makes dressing up and putting pieces together way more fun. So sorry if this isn’t your thing, you can skip this post if you like!
Outfit one! Because the British summertime is sucking salty balls right now! Every outfit has to been suitable for a heatwave or a snow storm! Every summer dress has to come with a winter knit because you may leave your house in tropical temperatures but within an hour the weather has completely changed. This dress was a charity shop find! Sandals are F&F at Tesco and the cardigan is so old I have zero idea where I got it from! I wore the outfit to work but it would look just as cute on a picnic!
Look two, Crikey I wore bloody shorts! It has been a long long time since I wore anything above the knee! And these were short shorts, pretty sure any one walking behind me got an eye full of my arse! So shorts and top are both from F&F at Tesco because I seem to have a serious bloody addiction to their clothes. I would now say that 50% of my wardrobe is from there! I bought both recently so should still be in store. My thighs are probably bigger than they have been in a long time but the outfit was so bright no one would have noticed the size of my thighs and if they did I could crush them! On a side note I also bought the shorts in navy blue!
Look three, OK I am not going to bang on about my workout stuff AGAIN! Its the same every single week, basically on Sundays I live in my workout clothes and they are always from F&F at Tesco because I love them!
Outfit Four, hello rainbow skirt of dreams! I am forever thankful that my boss doesn’t mind how I dress because some days I am pretty damn colourful! And I flippin love it! Skirt I bought last week in the Tu at Sainsburys sale for £7, bloody bargain! T shirt is Marks and Spencer’s, I realised at the start of this year that M&S basics like t’shirts, jumpers and jeans are some of the cheapest on the market with some of the best quality. M&S should definitely not be overlooked! Cardigan I have worn a hundred times, its Primark and if they have them again this year I will be buying every single colour!
Outfit Six, I hate this picture, I look so wide! I don’t even want to talk about this outfit! Lets skip over! But wrap was a charity shop find!
Look Seven! Now less wide and only the next day! As you get older you really do learn how to dress for your body! The last outfit I must have been tired when I got dressed! And the above picture explains why I rarely wear jeans! However this outfit is a little pastel cutie! Another skirt bought in the Tu at Sainsburys sale for £7! It is a thick skirt too so in the autumn I will add some black ankle boots and still wear it! Sweater is from M&S and again this year I won’t be buying knitwear from anywhere else!
Outfit eight! This dress is one of my all time favourites! Bought when I was in Australia from a charity shop. I adore everything about it! Recently I have been toying with the idea of having a holiday to America just to visit their thrift stores! How odd is that, but imagine the amazing things you could find! In Australia their thrift stores are massive more like warehouses. I managed to find some amazing pieces during my trips including this vintage number.
Look nine! I know I say this about all my outfits but I bloody love this look! Went for a bright tropical vibe because the sun actually came out for the day! My rule is, there are no rules! If you like two prints wear two prints or three, hell even four! If bright colours are your vibe, mix them together! If it makes you happy why not wear it? So top was £5 from the Tu at Sainsburys sale (I think the sale is still on) pants are from George at Asda and the sunglasses I got free from a trade show! Living the dream over here! In the past I would have been far to scared to wear coloured sunglasses now I am all over it! I can feel a glasses/sunglasses shopping trip coming on!
