I'm baking like a potato in my oven of a flat



How hot has it been the last couple of days? The tights today were clearly a fail but they've now been shed (ew) and replaced by some tiny slobbing shorts, and I intend to spend the rest of the night attatched to the fan. I sort of attempted to channel my inner Waldorf here, she's by far my favourite Gossip Girl character and anyone who stands in the way of her and Chuck Bass will have me to answer too. Although I'm not sure if this skirt is the best fit for my shape? I wear it constantly anyway, I bought it about two years ago from topshop and it's had a silly amount of time around my waist - my cost per ratio must be rather low, Gok would be proud!

Ugh I've just had a look out of the window and it's clouds a plenty, isn't that hot muggy heat where you can't sleep the worst? Yet I still refuse to sleep without the duvet incase spiders crawl all over me in the night, I'll live with this fear forever.

  3. I'm the same with the duvet, I don't know why, when I was little it was so 'the monsters wouldn't get me', now I have no excuse - not that the duvet would do any good anyway!
    It's a lovely skirt, gorgeous colour! Blair's my favourite too, her and Chuck belong together!
    There's meant to be storms across much of the country tomorrow apparently, so it should cool down! xx

  5. I always sleep with the duvet on too - as a result my boyfriend always refuses to believe I am hot as he says that if I really was I would take the duvet off! Also, I too had an outfit fail today, even wearing shorts and t-shirt to work (city shorts and a breton striped t-shirt before you think I'm a massive slob in the office! :) my little jaunt to town meant I came back from my lunchbreak a sweaty disgusting mess. And I bought tights on my lunchbreak so I obviously didn't learn my lesson!

  9. Why is it so gloomy out?! Ah! I love this blouse, so pretty and feminine and that skirt is wonderful.
    Luckily I sleep in the basement so it rarely gets too hot there, just waaay too cold in the winter

  18. I know exactly how you feel with the weather it was just soooo hot yesterday - horrible! You look lovely though I turn into a big sweaty mess so defnitely no outfit posts from me for a while ;p your top is gorgeous + perfect for warmer weather and I think that skirt looks good on you and if you've warn it so much you must feel comfortable + confident in it which is the main thing :) brave girl for rocking tights even for a bit I tried leggings on yesterday and nearly died :p

    Have you got a light blanket you could tryout instead of a duvet? (I cannot sleep without something covering me either ha-ha) and that usually helps me a little :)

  25. Oh it has been so hot recently, and really humid which makes it 10x worse. Really lucky for me as my flat and work have air conditioning, I'd be lost without it (and very sweaty!) You look really good though, I love the colour of your skirt and it looks really cute with your blouse :).

  33. I love your outfit! Especially the blouse. I agree with you about the heat. I hide under the duvet from mosquitos, then it gets too stuffy, i poke my head out, get annoyed by mosquitos and it all repeats itself :( x
