Sorry I’ve been a little M.I.A recently, the constant rain made it impossible to go outside to take any outfit shots (luckily no flooding here though) & then I came down with an awful head cold that feels like it’s now turning into a chest infection – Nico thinks I’m barking at him every time I cough! I’ve spent the last week hiding on the sofa feeling sorry for myself, drinking hot tea, eating junk & watching Fringe and Attack On Titan.

My default outfit when I’m feeling rubbish is a chunky hat & lots of drapey black layers, I think the feeling of being all wrapped up in soft fabrics is just somehow comforting, especially when you’re ill. I found that ASOS are now selling a thinner version of my favourite chunky cardigan I got from them last year, and it’s so perfect for this, so of course I had to get myself one! I’m very tempted to order the longline version too, plus maybe a backup as well! I always find myself regretting not buying spares when I come across really great, cheap basics like these & I still wish I’d brought another of the chunky version, that’s now sold out.

Talking of layering, I always love pieces with built in layers, like this dress I recently got from AngelEye. The double chiffon frill at the top of an otherwise basic fitted dress is the perfect little detail on it’s own, but it also calls out to be worn with lots of other cascading black layers like this too.

    You’re the best at layering! I always stock up on basics when I find a perfect one, people are like why are you buying three grey tees but I like having back ups! Hope you’re feeling lots better soon, seems everyone is struck down with some kind of lurgy at the minute xxx

      Yeah, it seems everyone is ill… I’m the only person I know that has this at the moment though, so everyone is keeping their distance from me! Hah. It’s always good to stock up on basics, the amount of times I’ve found the ‘perfect’ this or that & then about cried when it finally got worn out, not worth it! ;)

    Yes, it’s hard to be at your best when it’s bloody cold out and when you’re a bit sick. But you manage to stay stylish through it all. Love the pom-pom hat very much. Hope you feel better. /Madison

    Awww, I hope you feel better soon! I always love your drapey outfits and that AngelEye dress is really sweet. I always regret not buying doubles of my favourite items but I don’t have the wardrobe space/funds to buy two of everything. SOB!

      I agree, I wish I could get 2 of everything – especially jeans, but it’s just not practical! When it comes to cheap-ish things like tees, tanks .etc though I always stock up & just hide them in the attic till I need them :)

      Thankyou! Me too, I can’t stop wearing them together, I think they were made for each other :)

    Get well soon, and enjoy watching Attack on Titan! Such a different anime, storyline wise which makes it refreshing to watch.

      Thankyou! It’s the first anime series in ages that I’ve really thoroughly enjoyed, I was hooked right from the first episode, such a interesting concept & I was constantly blown away by the gorgeous animation. I can’t wait for season 2 now! :D

    i am loving the look of that waterfall cardigan – i’m surprised i’ve not come across it on asos before. all the layers here look so good together, even your hair completes the look. hope you feel better soon, sucks being sick when it’s cold outside :(

    Sorry to hear you’re feeling under the weather lovely, I hope you’re feeling much better now. I hope Nico was doing his bit in comforting you! You still manage to look gorgeous and as put together as ever even when you’ve been ill, I absolutely love this look. I agree with Josie, you’re definitely the Queen of layers! I think you should try out a few different bowler hats, I can’t imagine any hat not suiting you! Whenever I go into TK Maxx and my hair isn’t tied up I can’t help myself but try on all the hats haha, which sadly have been limited recently. I’m always on the hunt for another hat, but the bowler is the only one I’ve found that suits me. I have to say I’m totally with you on the see-through legs – I’m exactly the same. I’ve embraced it more in Summers of recent years, to hell with all those tanned limbs, people have to deal with my natural skin, I’m far too lazy for fake tanning and too impatient sitting around sunbathing! xxx
