I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

I think I’m finally making friends with the fringe… of course when it’s not busy snogging the hairpin under a pile of hay or camping in a wig. OK fine, the hairpin is my doing, and I did go on an impulse wig-purchasing spree at YesStyle… but once again, it’s difficult to manipulate the thing at all without the aid of a hairdryer! And besides, I keep buying kebabs with the money. Don’t mind the nerd glasses and its horn-rimmed glory, I lost one of my contacts on my trip to Azerbaijan (more on that later!) and it was either cross-eyed ‘that black-blotch-better-be-the-camera’ shots or pirate eyepatch… lucky for you it’s neither.

  22. Got to have a hair dryer when you have bangs!!! It’s a wash and dry thing everyday to keep them looking fresh.

    It looks great on you!

    This is a great post, I love the jacket. It is amazing! I really like your use of layering too, it would be cool if you could do a break down of what you wore beneath as I tend to get layering wrong and it can be very unflattering. You look wonderful in the boots too but I odnt think I could pull those off. I would probably wear this with a bobble hat, mittens and my grey or black Ugg boots.

  24. The boots are fabulous! The colour, the shape, the stitching. And what a beautiful shot that last one is! :)

    Why people make fun of glasses all the time? Im constantly stucked with wearing them as well, and I hate feeling like im less because i wear glasses.
    Actually i love yours, I think they are really cool, so be proud of them!
    Love the boots too, cool outfit!

  26. looove those boots! & they look sort of comfy for high heels?

  31. Lovely photos, I love all the layers in your outfit and the new fringe really suits you. You’ve also awakened in me a desire to possess a jacket that has zips which serve no practical purpose other than a fun distraction…

  32. those boots are such a beautiful color! i absolutely love them.

  33. Aw man your glasses are cute! Should I ever be in need of a pair of spectacles I shall be asking you where you acquired yours from (in fact I might just buy some anyway…)

    I have a love-hate relationship with my fringe (namely the great stonking cowlick in the middle that has to be straightened out every day). We’re cool though. Bros.

  34. kim

    The glasses (and the fringe) look good on you. I’m liking those boots too.

  35. I am totally in love with your jacket!

  37. This outfit is fierce! I especially love the boots and the jacket. The fringe is really cute, makes you look a little younger (not that you look old usually, haha).

  38. I love how you combined different patterns. And the boots make the outfit perfect with their shape and color. :) about the fringe: I also had fringe few years ago and I know how sometimes becomes a nightmare manipulate it. I can recommend you to put some dry shampoo on the fringe and then comb them in the opposite way of growth to make some volume. Then slightly comb them in the right way. I hope this was helpful :)

  39. Absolutley love the style of photography on your site.


  40. Fabulous outfit.

  41. Hubby’s a pretty good photographer. I’m loving the different elements of this outfit, mmmmm texture…

  43. I love the fringe on you. Have to admit that having a fringe is a bit of a pain when it comes to regularly getting it trimmed…but I would feel a bit naked without it! Loving that jacket!

  44. The glasses are great. Nothing wrong with glasses (can you tell i am a glasses wearer) Love the way your personality comes across when you write on here. It always makes me smile and think you seem down to earth and funny. My kinda person X

  45. So nice pictures as always. I love the scarf!

  46. My fringe is basically the bane of my life! But I can’t be without it now. Yours looks great, I like the little side sweep x

  47. Helen
