A throwback OOTD, and I'm back!...I think

I have allowed blogging as a priority to fall by the wayside as of late - but never fear, super-wide and very far-reaching readership, hope has come! I have renewed vigor in the blogging side of things and present to you yet another OOTD. Let us hope that this vigor remains, for I have many a post for y'all to look forward to. This includes shoe unboxings. Three of them. Yeah, you heard right. Or read, rather....three. I have bought three pairs of glorious shoes that are dying to be featured here. But anyway:

I put this outfit together a while ago - as you can see, this was when I was growing my hair out and hadn't gotten that lovely golden copper balayage through the ends of it yet. This was a time when I was still experimenting with things in my wardrobe, and when I thought my creepers were super edgy and alternative. I now wear them more than my sneakers and flats....they're just a great, solid shoe. And they add height. A whole 2 inches of it. And that, makes a difference.

Additionally, this was also the time I think I was getting as close as I am to my everyday style these days. Clean and simple. Though it's kind of funny thinking about it now, I think I've worn that pleather skirt out a grand total of 2 times in my 3 years of owning it. I am so sentimental with my clothes.

I think I've come a long way in terms of my style. I worry and think less about looking strange or purposely looking like the baddest bad-ass out there, and I'm just dressing for who I am. Even if on that particular day I am competing for the world title of world's laziest slob...

Have you been undergoing some style changes recently? What have you noticed change in yourself, how you feel and the clothing you buy?

I hope you all have a fab week!

This Thursday: OOTD Winter's End

It's been a long time since I've posted about something I'm actually wearing and as we experience the rain mixed with the sunshine, here's a sweet outfit for the start of spring (aka the end of winter).

Here I am enjoying the sunshine!

Fun fact: The necklace, bag and woolen dress actually all belong to Dot. It's somewhat surprising that we can share clothes as I'm a fair bit taller. It definitely makes things fun though!

Tidbit Tuesday: My Make-Up Bag

After letting Dot run the show last week, I'm back with another light post to brighten your day. Today, I'm sharing the contents of my personal make-up bag. While I have a second, larger bag storing my entire collection these are my 'go to' items.

My Favourite Items

I actually also keep an eyeliner in the bag usually but as I never wear it, I didn't include it in the shot. It's just so hard to put on (I'm working on it)! My make-up is definitely on the cheap affordable side but it works well with my skin and looks pretty anyway. The eye shadows are my favourites because for a long time people tried to find things that worked and ended up turning me into a zombie, a corpse or the victim of a punch-up. The natural browns, soft silvers and a touch of blue/green have transformed me from a terrible mess to a hot mess!
