Having the laziest day today - what else are Sundays for? I say "lazy" but I'm still gripped to my phone and laptop. One day, I WILL be able to switch off from the Internet for an entire weekend but on the plus side, I've almost answered all of my emails and I've got a few blogposts scheduled for the new week! I'm about a stone heavier because I did all that whilst eating two bags of chocolate chip cookies and a whole pizza! I'll have to remember to buy more healthy snacking options this week but you know when you just can't be bothered to cook or prepare food? Yeah. That. It has been one of those weekends! *sigh*

I wore this green and grey stripy dress which is oversized and comfy - quite appropriate for a lazy weekend when hiding cookie/pizza food baby! I bunged my hair in a bun but it ended up looking as if I had a tarantula on the top of my head (I couldn't bear the thought! "Is it on me? I feel like it's on me!") so it paid off to spend a bit of time tidying that up. I've not got much to wear when the weather is this confused. It's warm, but the skies are miserably grey and pouring down with rain, not to mention 22-25mph winds today. Hot pants are out of the question, ha! But I didn't know whether to put a coat on or a cardigan but I went with a leather jacket...which may have been a bit extreme and it was totally the wrong choice.. far too hot! I've given up with Summer, I am ready for Autumn now - at least you know what you're 100% in for with A/W. A lot of RAIN, COLD AND WIND. I'm currently watching Hocus Pocus on TV, so I'm in the mood for Halloween!

I don't know if you an see my bracelet very well in the photos, one of the most annoying thing to photograph is silver jewellery but engraved in to the bangle are the words "Live Laugh Love" which is really nice. It's from Love Hearts And Crosses, an independent company that have got so many pieces of cool jewellery in store so be sure to check them out!

  7. I love this outfit, perfect for a laid back day! I'm over summer now, I much prefer autumnal dressing which is handy considering it feels like we've time travelled in to November now. x

  10. Ah such a pretty look! That dress looks so comfy and you make me want to purchase a new watch (even though I rarely wear watches these days!) I love lazy days but I'm the same as you - I rarely ever switch off if I'm home as I'm always in front of my laptop working away!

  16. I'm pretty much always in the mood for fall but it takes so long for summer to go away where I live. It's almost depressing! But anyway, you look so cute and comfy in your striped dress. I really like this simple look! Also eating a whole pizza sounds pretty great to me!
