Fake Sophistication

Oh, late night blogging, how I love you. I've just returned from a stint of baby-sitting, and am now buried in a blanket at home, with coffee and cereal writing this. I'm wild, I know. I'm about as wild as this outfit is ground-breaking, but heck, you don't need to be a trend-setter to look (and feel) fancy. Seeing as you saw my casual get up at the beginning of the month, here's a little combination to make me look a bit more sophisticated. Although if I'm honest it's not difficult to do that, because I'm a perpetual comfort dresser. 
Being 5ft9" it's a rare occasion to find me in any kind of heel. These shoes are my new favourite thing but I won't lie to you, they're not the easiest to walk in. I'm still learning, so until I master it I'm faking the whole "sophistication" thing. 

The clock is saying 01:38 so I think it might be time for me to retreat upstairs to my comfiest pyjamas and a good book. Hitting the 'publish' button right now...

Right now I'm listening to:


  1. I'm pretty sure you sound exactly like me right now!! I love the outfit and think you totally look sophisticated. It's amazing what a cute outfit and fun pair of shoes can do :)
