A Bit Rusty


 Blouse: H&M x William Morris, Trousers: & Other Stories, Shoes: By Far, Bag: Sezane

When someone asks me how I am my instant reaction is always 'yeah, good' without even thinking twice. How many of you do the exact same thing? Regardless of how I actually feel, I never want to be that person who's like 'you know what, i'm not ok' but over the past few weeks I haven't been able to bring myself to offer up my usual response because I really haven't been all that good. I haven't written a blog post in what feels like forever as the past few weeks have been pretty shit and a bit of a blur to be quite honest. I won't go into all of the details but in short me and Ell broke up, i've had to find somewhere new to live, move in with friends for a few weeks (and live out of a suitcase which isn't ideal for a girl who likes to wear a different pair of shoes on the daily) and also had to re-home my beloved furry son Gin, all in the space of a couple of weeks so as you can imagine I've been feeling far from 'yeah, good'. Get the violins out eh. I know it's just a rough patch and I'll be fine in time but in light of World Mental Health day this week I just wanted to emphasise the fact that it really is ok to not always be ok. We all have ups and downs and unsurprisingly life isn't all rainbows and flowers but there's always light at the end of the tunnel and its so important to remember that. There's always someone to listen, ready and willing to provide an ear to be chewed off or a shoulder to be moistened at any given time. So, sorry for being MIA over here but I'm back and have SO many outfits and thoughts to share... starting off with this dreamy rusty floral ensemble. It's one of my fave outfits in ages, and it's no secret that I am absolutely OBSESSED with rust. 

I've seen so many amazing rust/ orange/ brown pieces in stores lately and I snapped up these Stories trousers a few weeks back that I really love. They're an excellent cut - super high waisted with a wide cropped leg and I think they're really flattering too. Not to mention the'ye rust cord and just an overall seventies dream. I've worn them a fair few times already but when H&M's latest collaboration with William Morris launched last week I knew instantly that I needed this blouse to pair with them. It's the most amazing print and it was only £8.99 which I can't actually believe! I feel like this is a really 'me' outfit and I'm finally starting to feel like myself again.
