stole my thunder




I feel let down by these photos as I don't feel they truly represent the rich, earthy, burnt umber hue of my H&M top. This colour really is splashed all over the high street at the moment. It feels slightly fraudulent, as I think of it more as an Autumnal accent. Still love it nonetheless.


My faux fur stole is another H&M purchase. I don't know whether I just really love H&M at the moment, or if I am just biased due to its more favourable distant from my office compared to the other shops. It was less than a tenner and I would be tempted to acquire another one and maybe sew it onto the neckline of a cardigan or jumper. As for my headband, this was a New Look number and it is threaded with a wire so you can twist and bend it until your heart's content. They also have a pretty floral one which I may also have bought, as I am a sucker for hair apparel. As I very infrequently wear my hair down, I feel an added pressure to do something notable with it, rather than pop it in a ponytail everyday. Hence a plethora of hair adornments litter my room.


I hope you are all having a good week, and have taken note of my newly-fashioned 'pages' at the top of my blog? There was so much I wanted to add to Pearls & Poodles, but was nervous to over-cluttered the home page, so I felt pages were the way forward! They are still under construction, and I hope to create a blog roll page soon, but for the time being, I am pleased with them.

Great outfit!
Love this burnt orange colour at the moment too, looks great on you with your lovely tanned skin!
I some times love my H&M, sometimes hate it- guess that's like any shop really though.
I have to wear my hair up to work- I would do even if I didn't have too. I feel so lazy in the week, the animals truly do not care how I look. Some times I wish I could wear what I like, have a office wardrobe and look lovely every day. But then other times I'm glad I can just throw on my (stunning) green trousers & stripey tunic, get on with the day & actual let myself 'out' at the weekend.

I'm the same as you with H&M, sometimes I love it, sometimes I don't. But right now I'm loving it, they have some lovely pieces in at the moment.

Hope you're having a fab week xo

@Michelle - thank you Michelle, just wish i had gotten a pic of you and me at Eyeko so i could add it to my page. :(

Late to the party as ever, I've been awol as I tend to skip some of the beauty product posts unless I feel I can bring some value in the comment.

I love the overall look and although the colour didn't come out as you had intended it's still a fab colour. Was it meant to be brighter? As there a lot of tangerine tones coming out for spring summer. The faux fur scarf is a really nice touch as well.

I picked up some sewing skills a couple of weeks ago at a style event I attended so I need to remind myself I can now do the odd customisation to clothes. It's a great idea sewing in the scarf to a jumper or cardigan you should definitely give it a go.

I love the new pages you've added especially the joys of blogging page. This year I intend to attend at least one blogging meet up.
