OOTD || Foxy Blazer


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I'm not a 'fashion blogger'. I don't look hot in disco pants. I don't effortlessly throw together key pieces. I don't find clothing gems in vintage markets. Sometimes, I quite literally spend the day in an old baggy t-shirt that says 'Bride' and some comfy knicker-shorts.....but that's only when I'm trying to be extra sexy. Ha.

 (Do excuse my angry gonna-steal-your-dinner-money face, I was scowling at my camerman like the loving wife I am.)

Nude Blazer :: Primark £13
Black Vest :: H&M under £4
Navy Skinnies :: Newlook £12.99 on sale
Black PomPom Slingback Pumps :: Topshop £20
Fox Bag :: Ebay £5.99 (also comes in pink, mint and black)

On this particular day, I had decided to treat the wider public and put an actual outfit on. Unless of course you want a knickers and nightie OOTD? Haha! This was just a fairly simple look that I wore for a mooch round a shopping centre with Matt and Baby Glitter a couple of weeks ago. It's nothing special, but pretty representative of what I wear most regularly.

 Earrings :: Primark £2-3
Nails :: Impress £8.99

I adore this blazer. It's super lightweight so not too warm, you can through it over a vest top and feel a lot more covered and 'protected'. I don't have an issue with my arms, but sometimes a strappy top during the day feels a little naked. For many moons I shied away from blazers as I thought they would make me look boxy and androgynous, but alas, I was wrong. With the right cut, fabric and shade, they can make a harsh outfit look very gentle.

If you have read THIS post, you will know that I adore impress nails even more than I do the blazer! 


The fox bag was a cheeky little ebay purchase a while back. I have since seen that Matalan are now stocking the exact same ones, but ebay is cheaper- woop woop, good old ebay wins again! I thought the bag added a touch of fun and whimsy to a fairly plain outfit.

So, not a polished, on-trend, cutting edge 'look', but that's what I wear of day and for normal life (as in not special occasions), is about as glam as I get!

What do you do to add whimsy to your OOTD's?

Toodlepip!

  21. Louise, you OOTD posts are so refreshing. To see someone with a fuller figure really working fashion. I love them, and make me realise that just because i'm a bigger girl, doesn't mean i can't still look fashionable.
    I love you're blazer aswell, the colour really suits you.
    (i hope you dont take offence to my comments, Its hard to find words that dont sound rude. i really admire you, and you're confidence)

  35. I love the bag! I saw it on Pinterest before but didn't know where to get it, so thanks for pointing me in the right direction. =)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really like the blazer- I felt the same way about blazers as I'm more top heavy. I looove the fox bag that adds 'whimsy' haha. Normally when I want to add whimsy to any outfit I do it with my nails and jewellery. I have some great Moustache earrings-they add 'whimsy' to any outfit :)

  70. really love the outfit(: is whimsy short for whimsicle? dont know how you spell it, SORREH! i like to add fancy shmancy feather earrings, although they tend to annoy me a bit so getting all 'whimsy' doesnt happen very often with me. owh. x

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think this looks rather lovely.
    I've been craving one of those fox bags for sooo long. They were £20 where i came across them though.
    I think at £5.99 on ebay Im definitely going to snap one up!

    I practically live in my blazer! They are such a fantastic wardrobe essential :)
