Casual Fridays - the patterned top/jumper edition

Hia ladies! How you doin? Im sorry for the infrequent posting (yet again) but turns out Im pretty exhausted juggling working full time, taking care of a toddler and run a household so come evenings Im a mess or couchpotato to be precise. ;) I will try to do a better job at blogging, bear with me please. :)

Well as Im running from chore to chore I tend to favour the more practical outfits. For me such outfits consist of jeans/jeggings paired with a top/jumper. To prevent them from looking boring I try to wear an interesting and eyecatching top/jumper. This outfit is the perfect example of my preppy casual style. :) My sister spotted this top in Copenhagen and of course I couldnt leave the store without a frenchie on my chest!! :) A frenchieface covered in sequins, whats not to love. ;)

What Im wearing:
Top from Esprit (recent)
Jeggings from Dr.Denim (recent)
Shoes from Softinos (recent)

As the weather has been pretty awful lately (rainstorms and a lot of rain, typical autumn) I havent got the chance to step outside for photos. So here are some indoors shots using my Iphone with my work office as backdrop. :) Looking at this outfit you might think where have the colours gone, hehehe. I guess the muted scandinavian style has rubbed off, but I can cope with it as long as there is a wolf involved. ;)

Cardigan from Lindex (recent)
Top from Esprit (recent)

Jumper from H&M (recent)

See, I havent totally forgotten my colourful self. ;)

Jumper from Boden (last year)
Shirt from Lindex (last year)

Well as you can see Im hard at working out this sewing business, Im slowly getting there. :) This is supposed to look like a dress for my little girl in the end. ;)
Have a lovely weekend! :)

Chip on my shoulder

Hia! Its not like I have chip on my shoulder these days but more like one on my chest and a pack down below. ;) Hehehe. This is to me one of my cutest outfit I have ever come up with, totally adorable. :) and maybe a little childish, but hey thats me. ;) When I bought the skirt I had totally forgotten about the squirrel cardi (too much clothes eh?) and I jumped of joy when I found it in the back of my closet by chance. :)

The skirt is of course from Boden, no surprise there. :) There is even a squirrel dress too which Im lusting after of course. It was just released among the rest of the winter collection this week, lots of droolworthy items Id say. :) Well dont be shocked if I turn up in a squirrly dress sometime in the future, hihihi. ;) No surprise to my colleagues at the office as well, I think they must be sick of me wearing all kinds of creatures. :) My obsession with animal prints is starting to show for real. ;)

I started my sewing class yesterday, yes Im going to learn how to sew clothes for my daughter and myself, preferably dresses and skirts if I manage. :) An aspiring seamstress but boy did I struggle yesterday, certainly Im not blessed in anything crafty. But I had a good time and learned a lot. Now I only have to make time to sit down and befriend my sewing machine, we are not on the best of terms yet. :P The rest of the class got homework but according to our teacher I apparently must be supervised when sewing. *blushes and hangs head down in shame* In other words a sewing disaster! Im wondering how this course is going to work out. ;) Stay tuned for more sewing bloooooopers. :P

What Im wearing:

Old cardi
Top from H&M
Skirt from Boden
Tights from White Stuff
Ankle boots from El Naturalista

Uhm yea whats up with the title you might think. ;) Well Im just refering to my newly purchased skirt, look lots of doggies or greyhounds to be precise. ;) As a dedicated dog lover I just about grab anything doggierelated, especially when it comes to clothes. :) My heart belongs to the French Bulldog of course but greyhounds are pretty cool too. ;) Besides my closet is brimming of French Bulldogs lately, they seem to be a favourite print on clothes these days. More of that later,you`ll see. :)

Boy, did I have a blast in Copenhagen!! Luuuuuuuuve that city, so beautiful, friendly and easy to get around. :) and not to mention the White Stuff shop, gosh I dont know how many hours we spent in that shop, hehehehee. The shop staff must have been sick of us in the end, occupying their fitting rooms for hours, giggling and trying on almost every item of clothing in the store. We behaved like children in a candystore, literally. :P Needless to say this skirt is from White Stuff. :) My love for WS has certainly hit another level *sparkles in my eyes* By the way WS is having a midsale now, up to 50 % off. I might have happend to buy me some more goodies. ;)  Ups photobombed by one of our four cats, this one goes by the name of Blackie cause well she is black and all.......:P

Hehehe looking quite smug about myself in my new skirt and oh new shoes as well! :) bought in Copenhagen, the brand is called Softinos, never heard of them before. I found them in a Fly London store, they are so soft its like walking on air. Im very very pleased with them! My sister and I bought the same shoes, hehehe she chose the black ones and I went for the grey. :) We sometimes happen to share the same taste in clothes and shoes but my sis stays clear of the bright colours which I thrive for. :)

If you like to see what we were up to in Copenhagen (the few snaps I managed between running from shop to shop) you might follow me on Instagram. :) My profile is private but I never decline a follower request. :) Have a lovely autumnal week!

What Im wearing:

Top from M&Co
