Lady Bug Says ... Relaxed Day Please!

Today I woke up and felt beyond ill. So ill that the thought of having to put my contacts in turned my stomach! Hence the glasses. Some people really suit glasses, I just don't think I am one of those people!
When I am feeling ill I just want clothes that are loose and to be wearing layers!

Lady Bug Says ... Checkered Girl

Is it a sign that you have too many clothes when you forget you own things! Well this dress had fallen into that forgotten category, and I'm not to sure why as I really do love it!

I find that I can never truly love an item unless it is a bargain/on sale. And with this dress coming in at £10 I think that counts as a bargain!
Now I have rediscovered it I can imagine wearing it bare legged(when the weather gets a bit warmer) with shoe boots.

Whilst taking my Mum on a Mothers Day shopping trip I spied this draped blazer and had to have it!

After wearing heels all day on Thursday(was not a good idea when I realised I would actually be standing up for 9 hours!) I wanted a comfy relaxed outfit for Friday!

Lady Bug Says ... Sparkling Things!

Some of you may remember this top from my little wish list a while ago. Well when I saw it in Matalan reduced to £3 at the weekend I couldn't resist it.
I quite liked adding a little bit of sparkle to a work outfit too!

Vintage boots, thrifted, Jeans, Primark £8, Turquoise long sleeved top, Primark £4, Sequined top, Matalan £3

Outfit total - £15

Think this has been my cheapest outfit yet!

A few people have commented on my poses (blush) Thank you for your kind comments. I usually take my photos before rushing out of the door in the morning, I think I need to actually start getting up earlier so I don't have to rush quite so much!

As its getting warmer I would like to start taking some pictures outside, though seeing as I live pretty much on a building site not to sure if I am comfortable posing in front of high vis clad men first thing in the morning!

Lady Bug Says ... Spring With A Chill

Spring is definitely in the air, the mornings are lighter, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. But there is still a definite chill in the air!
I always find this time of year very challenging wardrobe wise. Having to still be practical and wear a cardigan(or even a coat) yet not wanting to get to hot under the collar when the sun is beating down on you!
I am not quite brave enough to go bare sleeved or legged just yet! So a warm knitted dress and lighter sleeves were in order today.

Blue long sleeved top, Primark £4, Grey knitted dress, Primark £10, Turquoise tights, Tesco £2, Black tights, Primark £1, Black riding boots, New Look £30, Scarf, Tesco £3

Outfit total - £50

I really like the effect of wearing black tights over coloured, getting a muted glimpse of colour that changes in different lights and when you move.

How are you all finding the transition between Winter and Spring?

Lady Bug Says ... Practical Day

Sometimes you just have to be practical.
But I want to be practical, and warm, and colourful, and girly. Maybe I want too much? But this is what I came up with to try and fulfil my self imposed brief!

This necklace is possibly one of my favourite bargains. I love the vintagey feel it brings to an outfit.

Are you sometimes forced into more 'practical' clothing?

Lady Bug Says ... A Flash Of Florals

When I first saw this colourful silk scarf peaking out between ominously stained doily's and questionable polyester imitations in my local charity shop I knew I had to have it. The colourful florals and vivid colours just couldn't be ignored!
