Lashes of London | Outfit Post

Lashes of London

Today's outfit snaps come to you directly from the supermarket carpark. Ever the glamourous life, mine. I'm wearing my new favourite cropped t-shirt, from Lashes of London, twinned with an absolute steal of a wool pencil skirt from TK Maxx, and my well-loved boots.

Sometimes I get dressed and think, hmm, none of this really goes together, and part of my brain LIKES it like that. As I've grown up a little, I've become a lot less bothered about what other people think I look like (oddly, opening my style up to the world for criticism for my blog has helped), and I celebrate mixing it up a lot more now. Who says sportsluxe doesn't fit with florals?

Thinking about it - I don't care that my hair needs a brush, I don't care that my knees are knobbly. I don't care that there isn't really a 'name' for this ensemble (I've been listening to a lot of Black Spiders lately, their lyrics are unquotable).

There has been a lot of chat on Twitter lately that people should blog a certain way, promote themselves in a certain way, or whatever other self-righteous rubbish these "gurus" claim to advise. Well I would just like them to go away, and take their cliques with them please.

Some of us are happy to stand out, some are happy to blend in. Some are happy to leave the house without waxing their lop lip, others are happy to spend hours getting ready. What is important is that we are happy - leave them to it.


  1. I really like this top, Lashes have tons of awesome pieces in at the moment! DMs go with everything. I wear what I wear because I like it, each to their own.

  3. Such a gorgeous look, love it! x

  4. Claire you couldn't have spoken a truer word! You look as fit as always and completely rocking that pencil skirt. Check out your pins!

  5. What's all this then, not seen any of this talk? Is this all girls bitching again? Always best to concern yourself when what you need to do, best nice to people but always stick to your guns. You got it Claire but I think you know that.

    I'm off to the cinema tonight to watch a the finale of the Bowie exhibition live from the V&A, thought you might be interested. They're playing it in every odeon. Now he's a guru we should all listen to.

  6. love this outfit, you look so beaut! xo


  7. Gaaah I love this look! I agree, the whole 'do this do that' recently is annoying. I just keep to what I like to wear and what I like to look like :) xx

  8. I am always in awe of how darned cool you are lady, utterly gorgeous!
